Pizza is always a great late-night option in Cairo when you have friends over and you’re trying to save a pound or two. While it’s not so easy on that body of yours, there’s a few pizza places in Cairo that offer up great deals when you’re in the mood for a slice… or three.

When we’re searching for a scrumptious pan pizza, Pizza King is always the first place that we call. Similar to Pizza Master, Pizza King is known for its buy-one-get-one-free special. So when you buy any pizza, you get your second pizza of equal or lesser value for free. With branches all over Cairo including Nasr City, Maadi and Mohandiseen, they’re usually kind enough to deliver to other neighbourhoods as well.

While they’ve got salads (5.99LE to 12.99LE), garlic bread, chicken wings (10LE to 14LE), and other appetisers on their menu, we like to stick with the basics.

Italian, pan and stuffed crust options are available for nearly every pizza that they make, with the pan option always tasting right. Not too overwhelming but baked to a crispy perfection, the thick pan crust is always spot-on, and never the falling-apart mess that you get at other pizza places when you take your first bite. Pizza King’s pan pizzas stay together and that deserves some respect.

As mentioned in our five favourite pizzas feature, Pizza King’s cheese lover’s blend is arguably their best pizza. Piled high with a fresh mix of mozzarella, cheddar and Gouda as well as two toppings of your choice, a small pan pizza will run you 15.99LE. A medium goes for 41.99LE and a large size will cost 51.99LE.

Also for 41.99LE, a medium pan king supreme pizza comes topped with a filling amount of beef, salami and pepperoni as well as green peppers, onions, mushrooms, mozzarella, black olives, and tomato sauce. The fresh ingredients even out the cheese and sauce well; making for a satisfying and filling meal.

Seafood lover’s and hot dog are other options as well as calzone-styled pizzas (11LE to 15LE). While the pizzas at Pizza King aren’t out of this world, they are consistently fresh, and with speedy delivery service, Pizza King never disappoints.
