Bitebox is a family owned and run takeaway pizzeria located in Mombasa, Kenya. We make wood-fired, gourmet, thin-crust pizzas prepared with the freshest quality ingredients.
Bitebox was founded by Saagar and Sonal Shah and their kids love for real Italian pizza. Having spent almost every weekend at the local pizzeria with the kids, they found a gap in the market when it closed down. They couldn’t find anything that compared to real Italian pizzas in Mombasa. So they built their own back yard pizza oven and taught themselves the art of proper pizza making, cooking pizzas for friends, neighbours and family and hence the idea for Bitebox was born. In 2022, our Nyali location was opened offering family friendly home Delivery and Collection service offering our signature wood fired pizzas as well as a range of soft drinks. Our Italian style pizzas are made with passion using only the best fresh ingredients.
Our wood burning ovens are imported directly from Italy and are the focus of our world class container kitchen. The wood fired oven cooks pizzas in minutes and the high heat means the bases are always thin and crispy which along with the flavour of the wood makes them different from a regular pizza.
At Bitebox, our gourmet pizzas are handmade and cooked in a traditional dome-shaped oven, which heats to over 700 degrees Fahrenheit, cooking the pizzas in just three minutes. The wood-fire imparts a rustic smokiness to the toppings and the deliciously crisp and tender pizza crust.
