From deep dish to paper thin, a slice of pizza isn’t hard to find in New Orleans. We’ve got triple cheese, vegan, the works, and even seafood pizzas. Throw in some wings and a salad, and it’s a perfect meal. You don’t have to travel to New York, Chicago, or Detroit for your favorite pie—check out the restaurants below serving them up NOLA style.

New York-Style Pizza (and Pizza by the Slice)

Monumental pies, thin crust, and availability by the slice… just because it’s New Orleans and not New York doesn’t mean you can’t find excellent NYC-style slices here. Pizza Delicious is the original Brooklyn-inspired pizza shop in NOLA. What started as a secret window selling pies back in the early 2010s is now a full-fledged restaurant, complete with seasonal pasta dishes and excellent wine pairings. Speaking of pizza windows, St. Pizza in the Lower Garden District is another stellar option for grabbing slices (or full pies) to go. Feel like settling in for a meal? Their tavern in the back features a full sit-down menu with dishes such as spaghetti with meatballs and chicken parm, plus a killer cocktail and wine list. NOLA Pizza Co. in NOLA Brewing is another standout favorite, and pairs very well with the beers brewed on-site. They also have excellent white and square options. Also noteworthy on the Northeast-style pies is Zee's Pizza. Aside from great pizzas, Zee's is neighbors with Lucy Boone's Ice Cream (my personal favorite scoops in the city) and only a short walk from the St. Charles Avenue Streetcar line

Wood-Fired and Neapolitan-Style Pizza

Smaller in size and cooked in wood-burning ovens, spots like Pizza Domenica, Ancora, and Sofia are known for their traditional offerings (think Margherita, pepperoni, and diavola), as well as their more creative toppings. Restaurants like Margot’s offer pies with shaved brussels sprouts, ricotta cream, and lemon zest (as well as an excellent cocktail list with an entire section devoted to Negronis), or you can opt for lamb merguez sausage or farm egg with smoked bacon and braised collard greens at Paladar 511. Another great option for wood-fired pizza lives just across the river in the quaint neighborhood of Algiers Point. Just steps away from the ferry landing, you'll find Nighthawk Napoletana with its menu full of excellent pies, negronis, and wine in a laid-back setting. Pro tip: don't skip the salads with their made-to-order croutons–they're divine.

Classic Pizza

Pepperoni, supreme, and yes–even Hawaiian, when you’re craving classic, hand-tossed pizza, there are several standout spots throughout New Orleans. We’re particularly fond of Theo’s Neighborhood Pizza, Mid-City Pizza, and Reginelli’s. All three are smaller, local chains with reliably delicious pies in multiple locations throughout the city. In the mood for deep dish? Midway on Freret is the go-to spot in the city for Chicago-style pizza.
