Bijou | 75018

If crust is your jam when it comes to a good slice of pizza, then twerk your way on over to the pizzeria Bijou. Bijou means jewel in La French, and it’s the perfect name for this tiny, but shiny, pizzeria.

Paris is full of great pizza places, but I’m going to start off my reviews with one of my very favorites first, Le Papacionu. Continue reading
