10 Best Pizza Places in HoustonApril 8, 2016 by Buck's Pizza | Comments Off on 10 Best Pizza Places in Houston
First, Texans go for good food in a big way, and word about topnotch eateries spreads faster than a prairie fire. Second, no town in the Lone Star State beats Houston for gastronomical goodness, including pizza. Here are Space City’s top 10 pizzerias.
Of course we’re going to include our two Houston locations in Clear Lake and Mont Belieu, because like all Buck’s locations, they emphasis fresh, quality food and a family environment, and tailor their menu to the local community. Great food, friendly staff, and a family environment—check them out!
If you like your pie piled sky high with Gorgonzola, prosciutto, eggplant, artichokes bacon, pepperoni, and veggies, think Pink’s. Don’t plan on eating in, though, Pink’s is strictly a pickup and delivery outfit.
Pizza L’Vino delivers, and we don’t mean just the Greek Islander, topped with spinach, tomatoes, onions, roasted garlic, artichoke hearts, feta cheese, kalamata olives and Wisconsin mozzarella (whew!). L’Vino also delivers beer and wine!
If you have a hankering to eat nontraditional pizza in an old-world atmosphere, Boheme is the place for you. Their pizzas are made on a cracker-crust Middle Eastern flatbread and topped with Asian flair.
The fact that Piola’s cheerful patio is consistently crowded speaks well of offerings like the Salvadore (catipury cheese, roasted chicken, and spinach) and the Mantova (beef carpaccio, Brie, diced tomatoes, and arugula).
Whether you want to eat you meaty carnissima pizza at a table, or grab a quick bite at the by-the-slice-window, Coppa Osteria has you covered. Of course, if you eat in, you can watch them make the dough, because the central dough room is open to the dining area.
Don’t let the minimalist dining room fool you, Pizaro’s pizza has been compared to the best pie offered in sunny Napoli. In addition to making their own mozzarella and importing San Marzano potatoes, Pizaro’s is known for unusual offerings like its Patata e Funghi pizza topped with Yukon gold potatoes and oven-roasted mushrooms.
“Have pizza, will travel,” might be the motto for this pizzeria on wheels. Pi Pizza, which can usually be found parked in front of Catbird’s or Jackson’s Watering Hole, offers everything from slices topped with chili-cheese Fritos to the one-of-a-kind gourmet Panty Dropper topped with honey-glazed grilled radicchio and fennel, gorgonzola cheese, apples and shallots.
Crisp crusts quickly baked in a wood-fired oven, creamy mild ricotta and sharp Italian fontina, and meats cooked to perfection make Provisions’ pizza a Houston favorite. Billed as a “unique take on a warm and casual neighborhood restaurant and bar,” Provisions offers dining both inside and al fresco.
A double-sided downstairs wine bar, a maze-like upstairs dining area, and more than a dozen pizza choices—seriously, what more could you ask? Dolce Vita is hip and affordable, from its tasty pear and taleggio pizza drizzled with truffle oil to its extensive wine list.
If hand-crafted, wood-fired, Neapolitan-style pizza is your idea of good eats, Pizzeria Solario is the place to go! With unique offerings like pistachio pizza—i.e., fontina, Spanish onions, caramelized onions, pistachios, and rosemary, all atop one of the best crusts in Texas—it’s small wonder Solario’s is a Houston favorite.
