New Orleans was not always home to a robust pizza scene, but over the years talented carb-lovers have blessed the city with independent pizza places, ranging from casual counter-service spots to upscale Italian bistros. Additionally, some local bakeries have recently picked up the skill and added pizza to their menus, and one brewery kitchen is using reverse osmosis in an attempt to achieve classic New York crust.
Ranging from crispy thin crust to rich deep dish to Neapolitan styles, here is a guide to the best places to get pizza in New Orleans, currently open for takeout, dine-in, or delivery. Note that this guide only includes places where pizza is always on the menu, leaving out the weekend/Monday morning special at Molly’s Rise and Shine or pizza pop-ups.
As always, please visit restaurant websites and social media pages individually for their status. If this guide is missing your favorite pizza in the area, send Eater a tip and let us know.
