At Pink Flamingo in the Marais, enjoy pizzas betting on originality. Delicious recipes and natural wines, this is the summer spot you will fall in love with!

Tired of Calzone and Margherita? You will love Pink Flamingo pizzas based on recipes you cannot find anywhere else. Meet to the heart of the Marais to taste these creative pizzas. Terrace, organic ingredients, and natural wines, it has it all to make you enjoy your night dolce vita style.

First created by a Boston investor and his wife, Pink Flamingo is a brand existing for years in Paris. You may have heard about the first restaurant that used to be set by the Canal Saint-Martin. Then, the pizzeria opened four more restaurants in Paris, sold right before the pandemic! Phew! Today, remains only the Marais location managed since 2008 by Alexandre.

And the least we can say is he is a passionate. Here, everything is homemade with fresh ingredients of the day. As a matter of fact, Pink Flamingo is supplied every morning with produces almost exclusively organic. From flour for the pizza dough to seasonal vegetables, of course, all is sourced in short system to give you the best.

Speaking of pizza, the dough is as crunchy as can be, and the fillings are hearty, we love it. Based on tomato made of organic tomato coulis and a mix of 3 grated cheeses of the day (mozzarella, Emmental, and cheddar), we tasted the Bjork (€15.50) with sliced smoked salmon, and lumpfish roe on a spoonful of crème fraiche, sprinkled with fresh parsley. So good!

Even more original, we loved the Ghandi (€15), based on fresh spinach cooked Indian style, the mix of the 3 grated cheeses of the day, and Baba Ganoush (eggplant caviar, sesame, lemon and garlic cream), twisted with a bit of paprika.

There are also pizzas we have not tasted yet but that whetted our appetites. Close your eyes and order the Macias (€17) based on tomato, “tajine” style chicken (onions, ginger, cilantro, and cinnamon), and candied lemon, green and purple olives, fresh parsley and cilantro. Without forgetting the Almodovar (€17,5) based on crème fraiche, mix of the 3 grated cheeses of the day, chicken cooked the Spanish way (onion, bell pepper, saffron, tomato, snow peas), king shrimps, chorizo and fresh parsley.

Alexandre improved Pink Flamingo over the pandemic with takeout, of course, as well as a new cellar, with a whole range of natural wines. He even built a big wooden wine cellar to exhibit his latest references. We tried the Furlani Macerato, some sparkling orange wine, absolutely invigorating. Careful, it is easy to drink too much.

Set rue Vieille du Temple, right by Glou and across Musée Picasso’s garden, Pink Flamingo has a great location. There is a village-like vibe with people aged 80+ and families, and students, as well as the usual trend-setters living in the area.

And the good deal is that if you want to continue the evening at your place, the cellar provides a 40% discount on takeout! For the record, pizzas to be delivered cost the same as off the menu and minus €1 if you come and collect them. For lunch or dinner, on site or takeout, Pink Flamingo means you will eat well. And with all the flavors provided, we are not about to be tired of it.
