New Orleans is known for its exquisite dining selections – however, mastering the art of the pizza is no small task. The Big Easy has proven up to the challenge, perfecting every aspect in the making of fabulous pies. From hefty deep-dish pizzas to the traditional New York-style, as well as some of the best flat-breads ever created, New Orleans can satisfy even the most critical New Yorker. Here are some of the best pizza restaurants in the area.
Established on St. Charles Avenue in 2004, Slice Pizzeria now has three locations in New Orleans, baking the best pies in The Crescent City. This is the unofficial founding father of NOLA style pizza; no other pizzeria can quite compare to the culinary artistry and lively environment of Slice. Try the Sicily-Anna, prepared with spicy marinara, or, the 9th Ward, dressed with Cajun-Italian sausage. If you aren’t in the mood for pizza, try one of their salads, sandwiches, or pasta dishes.
