Austin Restaurants For Pizza

Are you a pizza lover? Maybe you like a piping hot, steamy, fresh-baked, flavorful pie, with just the perfect combination of cheeses, toppings, spices, and sauce?

If so, you’ll find places in Austin more than capable of satisfying your pizza craving.

The choices in town range from the national pizza chains, to specialty shops serving Artisan pizza creations along with a variety of lovingly crafted Italian delicacies. Note that Austin pizza is typically the New York thin crust style, rather than the Chicago deep-dish kind.

Below, we present our list of the local favorites, followed by a longer list of Austin pizza places.

Our Favorites

Little Deli & Pizzeria
7101-A Woodrow Ave. Ste. K, Austin TX 78757
(512) 467-7402
map website

A small but charming place in a shopping center that also contains a grocery store, drug store, and a few other stores. Serves outstanding pizzas and also sandwiches that are reminiscent of delis and pizzerias from New York. Pizza has a crisp crust and fresh toppings. Wide range of pizza offerings – suggested are the Margarita or pepperoni, tomatoes, and roasted garlic. Outdoor seating and a friendly, attentive staff round out the picture.

Home Slice Pizza
1415 S. Congress Ave., Austin TX 78704

More Home Slice
1421 S. Congress Ave., Austin TX 78701
(512) 444-7437
map website

Like Little Deli, Home Slice specializes in New York style (thin crust) pizza with super fresh ingredients and toppings. Some say Home Slice pizza is the best and as good as anywhere in New York. You can watch the pizzas being hand-made in front of you. Food is consistently top-notch. Hip, slightly quirky decor. Convenient downtown location, but hard to park and gets crowded.

House Pizzeria
5111 Airport Blvd., Austin TX 78751
(512) 600-4999
map website

Pizza connoisseurs claim House Pizzeria serves pizza to rival any in San Francisco, New York, or Italy. Wide range of choices, including some exotic combinations. Recommended is the potato and goat cheese, and the blue pizza (mozzarella and Stilton cheese with port wine reduction). Attractive decor and friendly waitstaff.

360 Uno Trattoria
3801 N. Capitol of Texas Hwy. Ste. G-100, Austin TX 78746
(512) 327-5505
map website

A huge pizza menu, with just about every kind of pizza combination you could want. They also have other Italian dishes, and excellent pasta and shrimp scampi, but the Italian-style pizza is what they’re known for. They’re also a cafe with desserts (suggested is the creme brulee) and coffee. Good ambiance and service. Good wine selection also.

East Side Pies
1401 Rosewood Ave. Ste. B, Austin TX 78702
(512) 524-0933
map website

5312 Airport Blvd. Ste. G, Austin TX 78751
(512) 454-7437
map website

Outstanding pizza in east Austin. Ultra-thin, crispy crust, with a variety of fresh, flavorful toppings. Not really the authentic New York crispy-chewy style, this is more flat and chewy until you get to the outer crust. But still delicious. They have a huge assortment of toppings available, like spinach, bacon, gorgonzola, and mushrooms, or sausage, cilantro, jalapenos, and red peppers. Also try the garlic knots and brownies.

New pizza franchises come to Austin

PizzaRev opened its first Texas location in Round Rock, just north of Austin, in September 2014. At PizzaRev a "pizza crafter" helps you select your crust, sauces, and toppings, then bakes your 11-inch pizza to order in 3 minutes.

Eventually four PizzaRev franchises are expected to be opened in and around town. Gino's East, a Chicago-style deep dish pizza place, is also opening locations in Austin and other Texas cities, in collaboration with Doug Guller, owner of Bikini's.
