One of the best pizza places in Dallas, Cane Rosso makes Neapolitan, wood-fired pizzas. The mid-range dining experience will get you a winning margherita pizza or the savory bacon marmalade with peppery arugula. Although the pizza loaded with fresh ingredients, patrons won’t need a side of sauce here. Inside, a sign reads ‘side of delicious ranch dressing for $1,000,’ because their pizza is that good. On Wednesday nights they have BYOB night, and also, order the spicy and sweet honey bastard on the secret menu.
Cane Rosso, 2612 Commerce St Dallas, TX 75226 214-741-1188

Although very different from the other pizza restaurants, Zoli’s is just as good.

Olivella’s Neo Pizza might have some of the best pizza in Dallas, thanks to the old family recipe they use from Naples.
