There’s no denying the comforting, convenient appeal of a perfect slice of cheesy, meaty pizza that’s delivered right to the door, but the truth is, some of the best pizzas are deserving of a little effort.
Instead of propping up a major national chain with your pizza dollars, visiting your local neighborhood restaurant for pick-up or dine-in can yield a far more fulfilling experience — and much more variety. After all, Houston pizzerias are slinging creatively topped New York-style pies, traditional Neapolitan, and thick slices hailing from Detroit, Chicago, and Sicily.
With the influx of Italian restaurants that opened this year, long awaited openings and second locations, it was time for another refresh. Rotated out is the now closed Garden Oaks location of Brother’s Pizzeria, but their Cypress and Energy Corridor locations remain open for your New York inspired pizza needs. Added to the list is Numero28, a neighborhood pizzeria in Highland Village and the finally opened Houston outpost of Austin’s Home Slice Pizza in Midtown. So, when your pizza craving calls, consider one of these 21 essential Houston pizzerias, which are a hit every time.
