Copy Link

Charlie Green imported a pizzaiolo from Naples and opened Olivella’s in University Park in 2007. It’s still going strong. Try the black truffle pizza or the Snow White, made with mozzarella, ricotta, and garlic.

Fireside Pies

Copy Link

This longstanding DFW pizza maker started on Henderson St. and has expanded with two other locations. Fireside serves wood-fired pies in an intimate, neighborhood atmosphere. Order the Triple Roni, topped with truffle oil and basil, or the balsamic chicken with herb-roasted cremini mushrooms.

Sfuzzi is back in town and has recreated some of the restaurant’s ‘80s and ‘90s favorites, including the Breakfast Pizza with a sunny side-up egg, prosciutto, bacon, and cherry tomatoes. The showstopper, don’t miss it pizza is the Sausage Rustica, made with sausage from Jimmy’s Italian, sweet roasted red peppers, and caramelized onions. 

Zalat Pizza Fitzhugh Dallas

Copy Link

This local, irreverent late-night pizza chain pays homage to its founder’s Vietnamese roots with pies, including the Pho Shizzle, topped with caramelized onions, hoisin sauce, and chicken.

Thunderbird Pies

Copy Link

From the minds behind Cane Rosso and Zoli’s comes Thunderbird Pizza. It serves Detroit-style pies, which feature Wisconsin brick cheese layered edge-to-edge on the buttery, crispy, chewy crust. This spot has come down firmly in the pro-pineapple on pizza category, so try the Island Boi if that’s your jam. It’s also got Canadian bacon, red onions, jalapeno, bacon, and habanero honey.

Cavalli

Copy Link

The original Cavalli in Irving isn’t much to look at, just a tiny, order-at-the-counter affair in a strip mall. But the Neapolitan-style pies deliver. Each pizza is made with imported San Marzano tomatoes and mozzarella di bufala for authentic flavor.

Delucca Gaucho Pizza & Wine Dallas

Copy Link

Indecisive eaters will enjoy the all-you-can-eat concept at Delucca Gaucho Pizza & Wine, where gaucho-style servers deliver half slices of dozens of varieties of pizza to each table to try. The spot is perfect for everything from date nights to family celebrations and has locations in Plano, Southlake, and Fort Worth.

Pizza Leila

Copy Link

Heavy, saucy, and square Sicilian pies with perfectly chewy crusts are the star of the menu at Pizza Leila, which operates out of Sloane’s Corner on Ross Avenue. Pies topped with porchetta, four different types of cheese, and veggies including spinach and artichoke are on the menu, along with garlic knots served with “really really spicy” chili pizza sauce.

Serious Pizza

Copy Link

Known for its massive 30-inch pies, Serious Pizza is pizza for those with a serious appetite — or a high tolerance for leftovers. Opt for The Jerk, made with bell peppers, red onion, cilantro and jerk chicken.

Partenope Ristorante

Copy Link

When an award-winning pizzaiolo opens a restaurant, it’s worth paying attention. The interiors of Partenope are beautiful, but the handmade Neapolitan oven that owner Dino Santonicola had decorated with Italian tiles is stunning. Try the Montenara, a flash-fried-then-baked pizza crust topped with mozzarella, tomato sauce, and basil.

Eno's Pizza Tavern

Eno’s Pizza Tavern in Oak Cliff is a must for thin-crust enthusiasts. Meat lovers go for the Pig Smiley, topped with Benton’s country ham, local honey, and Eno’s spicy sausage.
