Houston’s Best Pizza Restaurants

There is just something about a good pizza. {Heck, in our family, we like it so much we even have a Thursday night pizza and margarita tradition!} So needless to say, my family knows a good pizza when we see one.  And of course, we think pizza is pretty much the best type of food to gather friends and family together over too. So lately, I’ve been on a hunt for Houston’s best pizza restaurants, and with the help of my fellow contributors and some friends, I wanted to give you a few great options that you won’t want to miss too…

Houston's Best Pizza Restaurants

Reginelli’s Pizzeria

Multiple Locations :: Bellaire; Memorial City

If you’ve been to one of our major events, then you just might have gotten a taste of this yummy New Orleans style pizza!  Their crust is delicious, the toppings are creative and fresh, and the cheese is plentiful.  Next time you go, order a “Tony’s Play” with pepperoni, pancetta, prosciutto, fresh mushrooms, onions, green peppers, and capers, or stray from the beaten path and order one of their yummy salads.  Plus, they have awesome seasonal pizzas and great beer specials to wash it all down too!  Just follow their Facebook page to stay in the loop.

Star Pizza

Multiple Locations :: Upper Kirby; Washington Avenue

Star Pizza is that place where you bring out-of-town guests to for a big impression. It has been around in the Houston area since 1976, when two native Chicagoans decided to make high-quality, tasty pizza. The first Star Pizza location on Norfolk is a homey two-story house. Since then, the brand has expanded to the Heights area. You can get thin crust, whole-wheat, and Chicago-style, among others, and there are endless choices for toppings. The “Starburst” has ground beef, Italian sausage, pepperoni, onions, mushrooms, and green peppers.  You can also get pizza by the slice, and there are plenty of other food options including pasta and sandwiches. The salad is probably my favorite way to start the meal. And when you go, you must try the Creamy Roasted Red Pepper Vinaigrette Dressing!

Multiple Locations :: Sugar Land; The Woodlands; and City Centre

Grimaldi’s Pizza is so good that Frank Sinatra would insist on having personal pies delivered to his concerts. Okay, now are you curious? The secret has to be in the crust. The pizza is made in coal-fired, brick ovens and covered with fresh cheese and a variety of toppings. The laid-back atmosphere makes it a great place for families and kids, and there are plenty of locations in the Houston area, probably one near you!

Collina’s Italian Cafe

Multiple Locations :: 502 W 19th St; 3835 Richmond Ave; 8800 Katy Freeway

One word… BYOB. {That’s one word, right?}  You can bring in your own bottle of wine and enjoy fresh, hot pizza. I love the cool combinations of pizza toppings. I mean, sure you can pick your own, but when someone else does it for you, it’s just better. I personally love the “Rustica” {sausage, eggplant, and roasted bell peppers}, and the “Primavera” {fresh spinach, broccoli, zuchini, mushrooms, garlic, red and green bell peppers, and carrots}. They also have fun muffulettas and calzones.

Bombay Pizza Company

Multiple Locations :: Houston; Sugar Land

Bombay Pizza Co. was featured on the Food Network’s The Best Thing I Ever Ate. The reason? The unique pizza crust is wafer-thin, combining Indian herbs with traditional Italian spices. Be sure to try “The Slumdog” with pepperoni, Spanish chorizo, beef, Canadian bacon, mozzarella, grilled chicken, jalapeños, red onion, and Bombay’s special pizza sauce. Another cool pizza to try is the “Gateway of India” that starts with a base of cilantro-mint chutney and is then topped with crab meat, tandoori chicken, provolone, mozzarella, and artichoke hearts. Trust us…just try it.

Multiple Locations {and counting!} :: Houston; Katy; Fulshear; Sugar Land; Missouri City; Pearland; Rosenberg; Richmond

Pepperoni’s Pizza is known for their gluten-free options and health conscience attitude. When possible, they source ingredients from the area and pay attention to the little details when it comes to what’s in the food. They use potato starch, rice starch, and rice flour {among other ingredients} to make sure the menu items are gluten-free.

Pink’s Pizza *Grab & Go!

With 8 locations around town, Pink’s Pizza has made its mark in the Houston area. These authentic hand-tossed pizza pies are great for take-out, and they also deliver. One specialty we love is “The Marie” which is topped with rosemary chicken, artichoke, sundried tomatoes, roasted garlic, black olives, and mozzarella.

Flakey’s Pizza *Food Truck!

Flakey’s has been around the block a few times in the Houston area. This food truck is open until 3am most nights {for those of us who stay up that late!}. They have fun pizza combinations too. Two that caught my attention are the “Ten Dollar Ho” with anchovies, black olives, garlic, and gorgonzola cheese and the “‘Cluck yeah!’ Sriracha Chicken” with sriracha chicken, onion, garlic, feta cheese, and red bell peppers.

Whether for a meet-up with friends, an easy dinner when you just can’t cook, or a celebration of a special event, Houston’s best pizza restaurants offer some pretty great pies! Are we missing any of your favorites?  Chime in below!
