Listed below are a few Staff-Picks of The Best Pizza Shops and Restaurants in Pittsburgh and where to get Great Pizza in the 412.
Fiori's is a must-stop if you're visiting Pittsburgh. One of the best traditional New York-style pies in the city. The cheese, sauce, and crust are on point. Made with a softer dough and not too much sauce and topped off with a fresh mozzarella blend. The crust is less salty than other pies in this area and makes for a fantastic folding pie. The perfect combo of sauce and cheese, and they sell it by the pie or by the slice. 103 Capital Ave, Pittsburgh, PA
Absolutely fantastic Pizza, out of this brick-n-mortar pizza concept serving-up signature pies alongside rotating house specials. The menu changes frequently enough to keep things interesting. The brick oven pie is the hot menu item, with a sourdough crust base that makes for a perfectly crispy, crunchy crunch. This is a high-quality artisan pizza made with high-quality ingredients and an exciting range of toppings. 3615 Butler St, Pittsburgh, PA
Mineo's Pizza House
One of the best pizza shops in the city serving-up a traditional Sicilian style pizza. A great pie that you can only find in a third-generation family business. The Pizza was huge and thick with a ton of cheese and not overly greasy, with a nice light crisp to the underside. The pie was perfectly cooked. They also have Sicilian Pizza by the slice for a quick take-out. 2128 Murray Ave, Pittsburgh, PA 1521
Great cold topping pizza joint. The Pizza is sold by cut/slice. If you're looking for something different, Beto's servers up a square pie with a thick crust. But it's the process that makes this unique; first, they bake the dough with just the sauce, and then they put the cheese and topping on cold, and the portions are generous, to say the least. Tip if you like your cheese melted, take the Pizza home and microwave it for a few seconds. 1473 Banksville Rd, Pittsburgh, PA 15216
Proper Brick Oven & Tap Room
Proper Brick is a first-class brick oven pizza spot with a nice bar, with an excellent selection of craft beers, and delicious Pizzas. The crust is thick and crispy on the bottom but soft on the top. This wood-fired pizza has just the right amount of added spices and is made with only fresh ingredients. The sauce has just the right amount of sweetness and the crust has an incredible crispness with a beautiful fluffy interior. 139 7th St, Pittsburgh, PA 15222
