The 9 Pizza Spots You Have to Try in Dallas
Forget the national chains
Look, as much as we live for trying a buzzy new restaurant and throwing back a dirty martini or two, sometimes you just need a simple, comforting dinner. Specifically a slice of hot cheese pizza right to the face.
Here, our list of the 9 heavenliest pizzas in town.
Call Eno’s a fancy pizza parlor that offers a variety of handmade pizzas like the Pig Smiley (Calabrese pepperoni, spicy sausage and honey), the Meatball and Goat pie (topped with goat cheese and wild pig and lamb meatballs).
407 N. Bishop Ave.;214-943-9200 or enospizza.com
The best late-night pizza in the city--because it is the only pizza shop open until 4a.m.--ZaLat offers great meat-filled pies (we love the Hottie, with beef and Sriracha) and veggie pies like the classic Margherita.
2519 Fitzhugh Ave.; 469-573-2007 or zalatpizza.com
Lovers Pizza & Pasta
Perfect place for just a few single slices on the go. (Because having leftover pizza can be hazardous to our hips, and Lovers also sells whole pies.)
5605 W. Lovers Lane; 214-353-0509 or loverspizzeria.com
Generations-old recipes (both the crust and the handmade mozzarella are family secrets) and tomatoes imported from Italy keep Olivella’s cooking and us craving more.
3406 McFarlin Blvd.; 214-528-7070 or olivellas.com
Not just another Neapolitan pizza. Cane Rosso bakes theirs in a wood-fired oven and keeps to the Neapolitan principles: great flours, simple toppings, fresh tomatoes and handmade mozzarella.
2612 Commerce St.; 214-741-1188 or ilcanerosso.com
A Dallas icon, Louie’s has been serving its famous crispy thin-crust pizza in a divey, blink-and-you’ll-miss-it building on Henderson.
1839 N. Henderson Ave.; 214-826-0505
The unique pies--their signature Pig Pen is made up of every meat imaginable--are delicious fresh from the oven and even more savory cold the following morning.
5315Greenville Ave., #120B; 214-821-6465 or piggiepiespizza.com
Besa’s Pizza & Pasta
This hidden gem in Far North Dallas is run by a gregarious Russian family and offers up a true Italian sauce on large slices of pie that willmake you wish you had ordered the 16-incher.
14856 Preston Rd., #110; 972-233-7227 or besapizza.com
