These crowd-pleasing Dallas pizza places are sure to satisfy everyone’s cravings

Say “Texas food” and your mind probably jumps to BBQ, Tex-Mex, or chicken fried steak. Although those are all solid choices, Texas is no slouch when it comes to great pies. Anyone who’s ever had a picky kid or struggled to find something that makes everyone in the family happy knows the solution is always (well, at least usually) pizza.

Many of the Dallas-based pizza parlors that are featured in this list offer unique and even upscale topping combos that might not appeal to all kids, but have no fear: You can get a basic cheese and pepperoni pizza just about anywhere. In fact, most of the best places to get pizza in Dallas also serve some pasta or other Italian options even if someone in your group is shockingly not wanting ‘za. What’s more, many have bars or serve beer and wine—a good “grownup drink” might be exactly what Mom and Dad are looking for.

Insider Tip: Kids’ menus are mentioned if the pizza place has a dedicated menu for children. Otherwise, order off the regular menu for all.

Cane Rosso
These 14-inch pizzas are prepared in the Neopolitan style and are cooked in less than 90 seconds in a 900-degree oven. There’s a robust selection of gourmet pizzas divided into “red” and “white” sections as well as build-your-own and gluten-free crust options. The pies have fun names (ahem, Jabroni) that might not be 100-percent appropriate for little ears.

Cane Rosso’s kid’s menu is geared toward younger palates, offering familiar cheese and pepperoni pizzas and pasta with butter, parmesan, or tomato sauce. There’s also a separate brunch menu with non-pizza delights such as breakfast tacos and chicken and waffles. Brunch is served Saturday and Sunday from 11 a.m.-3 p.m.

Serious Pizza
When a pizza place makes 30-inch pies you can hardly fit in your car, you know there’s no playing around. Serious Pizza prides itself on being outrageous and having outrageously good pizza. Kids (especially kids with serious appetites) will find the idea of having a giant slice of pizza to be super fun.

Specialty and build-your-own pizzas come in three sizes: large (18-inch), extra large (24-inch), and seriously large (30-inch). The list of specialty pizzas is pretty standard: buffalo chicken, Margherita, Philly cheesesteak, and other favorites. There are four vegetarian specialty pizzas, including one made with Beyond Sausage. Note: Serious Pizza does not accept cash.

Old Hag’s
Old Hag’s Pizza is named for the owner’s mother, Becky, at her request. This spot has a huge variety of pizza crusts—including gluten-free—and toppings, and guests can choose from spicy or mild pizza sauce. They offer New York-style and pan-style pizzas.

There’s a lid for every pot here. From gourmet combinations like spinach, walnuts, and Gorgonzola to more traditional meat and cheese pizzas, if there’s not something that appeals to you on the menu, you can build your own. They also serve fully vegan pizza.

Campisi’s
Campisi’s pizzas come in three sizes—small, medium, and large—with a robust list of toppings for building your own pizza. There’s also a small menu of specialty pizzas that includes a Greek pizza with olives and feta and a BBQ chicken pizza topped with red onions and ranch. The kid’s menu has a variety of simple pastas, individual pizzas, and chicken fingers.

Fun fact: Campisi’s claims to be not only Texas’ first pizzeria but that Texas’ first pizza was made in their original Mockingbird Lane location. True or not, Campisi’s and its “OG Texas pizza” deserves a spot on your list of Dallas places to get pizza.

Zalat
No matter what you like on your pizza, starting with Zalat’s housemade crust and marinara sauce gives you a great foundation. From there, choose old standbys like cheese and pepperoni or step it up with something more adventurous, like Nashville hot chicken and pickles or the Sweet Revenge, topped with bacon jam and hot honey.

Zalat’s pizzas come in two sizes: 14-inch large and 18-inch giant. They offer gluten-free crusts and vegan cheese options. All crusts are fully vegan.

Yonker’s Pizza
The motto of Yonker’s Pizza is: “Born in Yonkers. Perfected in Dallas.” These New York-style pizzas are made with hand-tossed dough. Although they mainly offer 18-inch pizzas, there are several options for 10-inch specialty pies if you want something a little more elevated. The Story City Pizza is topped with ricotta, truffle oil, pepperoni, and Italian sausage. The Great Bambino, topped with meatballs, Italian beef, hamburger, Italian sausage, and pepperoni, is a must for any true meat lover. Cauliflower crust is available on request at no extra charge.

Greenville Avenue Pizza Co.
Greenville Avenue Pizza Co. is all about “slaying” the pizza experience. One of the most unique things about Greenville Avenue Pizza Co. is the wide availability of pizza by the slice and the many options for calzones. Also, their menu includes a build-your-own section with several creative options for drizzles and sauces, cheeses, and seasonings as well as veggies and protein options. Their choices of toppings include hot honey, pesto, feta, gouda, and several other things you don’t typically see on a pizza menu. There’s also a robust selection of Pizza Slayer Classics, with a preset mix of toppings. Because most topping choices are atypical, read the menu carefully beforehand to make sure this is the right pizza place for your little eaters.

You can also order an iPie Your Way, which is a plain mozzarella and tomato pizza with a list of add-ons.

DL Mack’s
While DL Mack’s doesn’t tout itself as a pizza place, Chicago-style cracker crust pizza is one of their specialties, and it’s so good that it deserves a place on this list. Specialty pizzas include The Caprese (Campari tomatoes, fresh basil, olive oil, and balsamic glaze) and the Harry Caray Special (pepperoni, fresh jalapenos, and spicy ranch), plus a handful of other choices.

BellaTrino
Wood-fired Neapolitan pizza is the specialty at BellaTrino. Their pizzas run from the classic (pepperoni with fresh mozzarella and Margherita) to the inventive (pancetta with candied figs.) Although the ‘za selection is relatively small, there are other Italian classics (pasta dishes, calzones, and salads) to make up for it.

Delucca’s
Big appetite? Come to Delucca’s, which serves their pizza gaucho style—meaning, various pizzas and other dishes are circulated throughout the dining room and guests take whatever looks good to them. If you’ve ever dined at a Brazilian steakhouse, it’s the same concept, only with pizza. You’ll pay a fixed price for as much pizza as you can hold.

The online menu lists the types of pizzas (and dessert pizzas, too!) you can expect to find. Although there is a classic pepperoni and a four cheese, most of the pizzas run toward the gourmet and elevated: Garlic picanha and chicken tikka masala are some of the varieties you’re likely to find. Most pizzas and other dishes can be made vegetarian, lactose-free, or gluten-free upon request.

Louie’s
The Chicago-style thin crust pizza at Louie’s is a carefully guarded secret, as is the housemade sauce. Pizzas are available in small (12-inch) and large (13-inch) and are reasonably priced. There are no on-menu specialty pizzas at Louie’s. Instead, the available toppings and their respective prices are listed on the menu, so guests can order what they want. Although pizza is just a small part of Louie’s menu—there are a plethora of other food options—it’s what Louie’s is best known for.

i Fratelli
The motto of this robust Texas chain is “never trust a round pizza.” Not quite oval, not quite square, and definitely not round, these pizzas have been one of the most beloved Texas pizza joints for more than 30 years.

i Fratelli’s current menu includes six specialty pizzas and options to build your own. Popular pies include the Staff Special (grilled chicken, artichokes, and Roma tomatoes) and the Carne Classico, which has all the meats, including Canadian bacon, meatballs, and Italian sausage.

Various locations throughout Texas with most in the Dallas Fort Worth metro area. The published menu is the same across all i Fratelli’s locations.
