Ace Pizzas at The Base, President Hotel 

Post date:


Sunshine. Summer. Seabreeze. Salty air. A view of the shimmering blue ocean.

Pizza, right?


The clever folks at The President Hotel know just how to put the perfect package together, and their new wood-fired outdoors pizza bar ticks all the boxes.

Launched just in time for the festive season, The Base at The President serves top class pizzas made to order just for you.

Get cosy on the terrace around the infinity pool, order some cocktails and pizzas and get ready to relax!

If the Camps Bay strip has become too crushed and manic for you but you still want to get your seaside sundowner cocktail and chillin’ vibe on, you’ll love The Base.

Executive Chef Craig Paterson devised 6 delicious pizza options, from classic Margarita to more swish creations like prosciutto, gorgonzola, rocket and fig pizza or a pulled pork, blush peach compote, sesame and slaw version. 

Gluten-free bases will be made available, and all pizzas will be fired on the Chef’s signature dough recipe on a fresh tomato sauce base.

Take-away options are also available for collection. Prices range from R95 – R135.

“I am excited to bring this new concept to the President Hotel, which is meant to showcase the skill and passion behind Italian food,” shares Paterson. “This summer we really want to focus on bringing on a menu that is fresh, lively, and allows guests and customers in the area to relax into the comforts of the new season.”
