Posted by Holly Whitfield | February 9th 2015 2737 0

I’ve just been informed that it’s National Pizza Day. Here’s a few of my favorite pizza places in Memphis. I’m aware that this isn’t a comprehensive list of places that you can eat pizza in our metropolitan area. This list is just a “slice” of the pizza offerings around town (sorry).

Click on the bold links to find out more about these locations.

– This is the Red Eye Pizza at Hog & Hominy. You want to try it, I promise.

– Coletta’s claims to have invented barbecue pizza, but has other pie offerings as well. This is the ham pizza.


– Maui Brick Oven offers gluten free pizzas in Germantown with all kinds of toppings. It’s good and you hardly notice the gluten-free crust. (Closed)

– The pizza at Strano Sicilian Kitchen is one of my favorites. Their homemade crust is the bomb.

– This is the Memphis BBQ pizza (including a scoop of slaw) from Aldo’s downtown.

– Pyro’s Pizza is fresh and fast out of the oven, with four locations – Park and Ridegway, Midtown on Union, Collierville, and Cordova.

– Options for vegans and non-vegans alike at the Rock ‘n’ Dough locations and food truck.


– Get pizza in a pinch in The Pinch District at Ferraro’s.


– Memphis Pizza Cafe! Can’t go wrong with a classic, especially when they have locations all over town.

Hey Meat!, Memphis Pizza Cafe, Memphis, Tenn.

– Go off the beaten path for a pie at High Point Pizza.

– For delivery or takeout, go with Camy’s. Their pineapple and pepperoni pizza is my favorite.

Broadway Pizza is a Memphis institution. This is the cheeseburger pizza, including pickles!

Little Italy is another Memphis institution, and honestly one of my favorites for NY-style slices.

– There’s lots of delivery goodness (and a lunch buffet) at Garibaldi’s.

– I haven’t had a chance to try the regional chain Lost Pizza Co. but I’ve heard good things.

I write about what’s going on with Memphis music, food, arts, events, sports, people, and culture. Memphians love Elvis and barbeque with a passion that must be seen to be believed, but there is so much more to this place.

    No Trolley Stop Market? It's top tier Memphis pizza, in my book.

    Best pizza in/around Memphis, for my money – having tried more or less all of these – is at Ciao Baby on West Poplar in Collierville.

  3. Tamara says:

    This is the best thing I've seen all day! Memphis Pizza Cafe is always and forever my jam!

  4. Sarah McCormick says:

    Old Venice Pizza Co on Perkins  across from Laurelwood has the best pizza crust in town. And great lunch specials. By far my favorite. 

  5. James says:

    Midtown Crossing Grille in Crosstown is a wonderful new addition. I love The Hangover (steak, bacon, and an egg on top) with mushrooms added.

    I’ve been happy with Lafayette’s too.

    And I loved the pizza at the old Hi-Tone. Do they still do it at the new location?

    Memphis has some serious pizza culture!

      James, I have to get to the Midtown Crossing Grille soon! The new Hi-Tone doesn’t have their pizza unfortunately.

    I went to Lost Pizza with a Groupon. The wings and nachos were okay but the pizza tasted like Chef Boy ArDee would be upset that someone fell short. No kidding. Pyro's doesn't hold a candle to Rock n Dough which is the one of the best in the region.

    Ciao Baby in Collierville has authentic Neapolitan-style pizza and it’s fantastic — try the ricotta pizza if you go…
