Description: The Upper Crust Pizzeria Turkey has imported pizza perfection straight from Boston, and now it is located in the heart of Besiktas. If you need some space and a snack – come alone and grab a single slice that's still a huge 23cm across. Or if things are going well and you have good company stay in and sit down for whole pizzas in either Large or Extra Large. On the side you can have a variety of fresh and healthy salads but at the end – the cheese cake is a serious must! If your in the store you can read magazines and watch basketball, or if you get it delivered and then you don't have to leave the couch...

“Yummy - unique pizzas with a Turkish twist”
Reviewed February 6, 2012

We have had pizza from the Upper Crust twice, as it was one of a handful of food purveyors near our hotel (Ciragan Palace), and offered a nice light alternative to the hotel restaurants. Service was friendly and fast, and the thin crust pizza is fabulous. We had the “Istanbul” both times. It is topped with mushrooms, two local sausages and a regional pepper (hotter than a bell pepper, but not really spicy at all) and would recommend it. The menu is very unique from a Western perspective, and we found the “Istanbul” to be a good balance of Turkish ingredients that appeal to a Canadian flavor palette. The restaurant itself is very small, but clean and comfortable. The pizza was well priced (25 Lira for a large, so about $13) and of very good quality.

“Fresh, delicious, friendly and great value for money.”
Reviewed August 16, 2011

I went there with 4 friends all traveling around the world - it was the best value food we have had in Istanbul and like a slice of home. Excellently clean store and the pizza is prepared infront of your eyes. I loved the store vibe and the food arrived fast and it was so good we ended up eating a whole large pizza each, plus cheesecake and cheesy garlic bread. Its a small store but popular with students, internationals and locals.
