Longtime locals can point to the dark days when New Orleans faced a dearth of authentic pizza. It was just a matter of time before someone took it upon themselves to introduce genuine thin crust, rich thick crust, and true Italian-style pies.
Regardless of the reason, the city is now home to a myriad of independent and excellent pizza joints, from casual to upscale. Quite a few also offer delivery, but only in selected areas, so check websites for ranges.
Because of the very recent chef change and the Besh Restaurant Groups turmoil over sexual harassment at the company, longtime favorite Domenica leaves the list until it can be re-evaluated. Sugar Park closed and has been removed.
Joining the map are Echo’s and 10-Foot Pizza.
