Best pizzas in San AntonioHow do these rankings work?

1. Dough Pizzeria Napoletana

This is easily one of the most authentic Neapolitan pizzas you’ll find in all of Texas. . At the heart of the pizzeria, the wood-burning ovens cook pizzas to perfection in 90 seconds at over 800 degrees.

They also make their own mozzarella daily and use amazing local ingredients.

2. Il Forno

Il Forno is another great Napoli-inspired pizza joint in San Antonio, where the menu is divided into ‘Pizza’, and ‘Not Pizza’.

The toppings here go above and beyond deliciousness. Think: garlic, leek, mixed shrooms, fontina and taleggio or a Carbonara pie with guanciale, egg, shrooms, and pecorino.

3. Trilogy Pizza

The name Trilogy refers to their three styles of pizza: Traditional New York, Chicago Deep Dish, and California Gourmet Wheat. All pizzas are available in any style, so no matter which toppings take your fancy, you’ll be in carb heaven.

The Farmers Market pie is an instant winner. It’s with garlic-infused olive oil, mozzarella, feta, chicken, spinach, tomatoes, zucchini, and artichokes.

4. Playland

This pizza-centric restaurant has an exciting and fresh take on pizza classics. Their sourdough base is beautifully fluffy and chewy, with charring on the crusts. As for toppings? Feast on spicy fennel sausage, fig puree, heirloom tomatoes or a tasty BBQ pork butt.

They say everything is bigger in Texas, and Big Lou’s Pizzeria is the perfect example. This local pizza joint has a specially-built oven that cooks up its famously huge pies. It’s probably one of the biggest pizzas you’ll ever eat!

The Big Lou’s 42″ pizza has become so popular that it was even featured on The Travel Channel’s Man vs Food.

6. Florio’s

A local favourite, Florio’s serves up classic NYC-style pizza in San Antonio. Order by the whole pie or by the slice for a tasty pizza feast.

Fralo’s is a great beer garden with live music and delicious pizzas.

Each pie is a unique creation of hand-tossed pizza dough, made by owner Frank’s Mom, with house-made sauces and freshly prepared toppings. Plus, it’s dog friendly here, so you can bring your pup.
