The Best Pizza in Anchorage, AlaskaHow do these rankings work?
Going strong since 1996, this is a local favourite – you’ll more than likely have to wait a little while for a table, but Moose’s Tooth is also a microbrewery so you can have a nice beer while you wait. The pizzas here come with creative toppings and are hand-tossed, stone-baked and made from scratch every time. Perfection.
When the owner of Marco T’s was sent to San Donato, Milan for work training, he brought back a few culinary tricks with him to Anchorage, Alaska. The rest is history and that history is just about as tasty as can be. Following the Italian style of creating thin-crusted pizza with light toppings and fresh ingredients, everything at Marco T’s is prepared to perfection and bursting with delicious flavours.
We’re practically drooling as we prepare to tell you all just how tasty the pies at Fat Ptarmigan are. The wood-fired flavour comes through in every single bite, whether you order a classic pepperoni or something more daring such as their Beer Cheese pizza. Yes, we said beer cheese. It has beer cheese sauce, another special cheese blend, reindeer sausage, roasted red peppers, bacon, and green onions. Simply irresistible.
Saverio’s Pizzeria is one of the best places for pizza in Alaska if you’re after something traditional and homemade. They refuse to compromise on quality here, and it truly shows in terms of taste and preparation. The crust is delightfully thick, but not so much that it overpowers the tantalising taste of the ingredients they cook on top of their pies.
Start off any visit to Muldoon Pizza with a basket of their fresh cheese bread. It’s especially delectable during the summer or winter, with a glass of wine or beer. However, make sure you save room for a topping-covered pizza that’ll blow your mind. Build your own to truly cater to your tastes, or stick with a fan favourite like the thick crust Super Special.
Flattop is the kind of place you can head to hang out with friends well into the night. Grab a couple of beers, snag a spot at a pool table, and prepare to treat yourselves to a fun evening full of world-class pizza. The retro vibes here create a trendy atmosphere in which you can truly relax. And, that’s great considering how full you’re able to feel after devouring some of the best pizza in all of Alaska.
Billed as a family-friendly wood-fired gastropub with a lovely summer patio, Hearth Artisan Pizza is an all-around fun place to relax and indulge. They work hard to feature authentic, organic and local food. But, you’ll also find sinful treats such as fresh brews and good wine. Sample any one of their craft brews as you graze your way through a unique specialty pizza. Or, order a wine tasting flight and pair it with any one of the pizzas they so kindly suggest.
