It's no secret that Americans love pizza. The average American eats more than 46 slices (23 pounds) of pizza a year. So if you're going to enjoy that many delicious pies, you might as well grab the best ones in town.
Luckily, Houston has a pizza scene that is quietly building to rival pizza-powerhouses like Chicago and New York. Don't believe us? Go check out some of these top pizza parlors in Houston for yourself.
Dolce Vita Pizzeria & Enoteca
This Montrose gem serves up a classic Neapolitan style pizza in a rustic-Italian atmosphere. Guests love the wood-fired oven which delivers pizzas with the perfect mix of a crunchy crust with gooey cheese and sauce bubbling on top. Dolce Vita is the brain-child of famed Houston chef Marco Wiles, and food critics often place this pizza joint at the top of the Wiles family of restaurants. The restaurant features a happy hour on Tuesday through Thursday with half-off wines by the glass and complimentary meatballs with every drink order. It's a perfect spot for a classy date or a few slices with close friends.
Maybe you're looking for a no-frills, classic slice of pie. Then Frank's Pizza in the Historic District downtown is the place to go. Frank's has that New York pizza joint feel the minute you walk in. Fresh slices of hand-tossed cheese, pepperoni, and sausage pies are immediately on display next to a few Houston-inspired slices like Chicken Fiesta topped with chicken fajita, bell peppers, and pesto sauce. Frank's is where you go for a quick lunch during the work week or an end-of-the-night snack on a Friday or Saturday night.
Pi Pizza is the adventurous pizza lover's paradise. Hungry guests can choose from one of the menu's wacky pies like Who's the Mac featuring toppings like thick cut smoked bacon and house-made mac and cheese or get inspired and build their own pie with any one of the restaurants choice ingredients. Once you become a fan of the spot, pop in once a month to check out their rotating selection of inventive pies of the month.
All of these Houston pizzerias are just a short drive from The Ranch at Shadow Lake. For more information on our world-class community, contact us today!
