Just because you’re in San Antonio doesn’t mean that you can’t crave for pizza. Sure, you probably think of tacos and burritos when you think of food around the Alamo, but you’re likely to want something else other than Tex-Mex at some point. Thankfully, San Antonio is home to some of the best pizza in the state, especially considering that the city is a few hundred miles away from pizza states such as New York or Chicago. San Antonio is holding its own, and if you ever find yourself in the area, just know that you could always count on their pizza. Here are the five best places where you can get excellent pizza in San Antonio, TX.
Located in Prospect Hill, this small-town pizzeria offers an all-you-can-eat type of menu, and who doesn’t love all-you-can-eat pizza? The family-owned establishment offers some pretty amazing pizza concoctions that you can’t find anywhere else. One of our favorites is the El Diablo, and you can pretty much assume that this one is all about the spice. It’s something that a true San Antonio native should be able to handle. Just make sure that you plan a visit to Gallo Pizzeria during the week because the restaurant is closed on Sundays and Mondays. Also, make sure you go on an empty stomach to really enjoy the buffet experience.
Dough Pizzeria Napoletana
In true tribute to the inventors of the beloved pizza, Dough Pizzeria offers some of the best wood-fired Neopolitan pizza in the nation. At this place, it’s all about the basics: basil, cheese, tomato sauce, and of course, the best pizza dough you could find anywhere. That’s to be expected considering the name of the restaurant is Dough. Truly, those are all the ingredients you could ever need to make the best pizza ever, and this pizza restaurant does pizza like a Naples native. This is a must-visit for anyone going to San Antonio on a trip, and if you ask any native, they’ll probably tell you the same.
True pizza lovers can celebrate pizza diversity at Trilogy Pizza because this restaurant offers the trinity of pizza crusts: New York, Chicago, and California. California? Yes, Trilogy Pizza offers the California wheat crust that only Californian knows about, but the fact that the restaurant offers both New York’s thin crust and Chicago’s deep dish is already a selling point. It also helps that they actually do both styles pretty well. If you’re a true pizza lover like us, you love pizza in all shapes and sizes. You can be satisfied knowing that you no longer have to choose between any pizza styles, and Trilogy Pizza is probably one of the few restaurants in the nation where you could have a thin crust and a deep dish on one table.
If you’re looking for a true New York style pizza, you better find a restaurant with a New York native in the kitchen. Capos Pizza is exactly that, with its owner being a Buffalo native. More interestingly, Capos Pizza is a one-man show; its owner is the chef as well, and he churns out pizza like he’s cooking at his backyard party. You can be guaranteed a warm neighborhood environment and some of the best pizza you could ever have anywhere. It’ll make you feel like you’ve traveled to a New York neighborhood as soon as you step into the bare-bones restaurant. The prices are great and the food is excellent. There’s nothing else you could possibly want.
Big Lou’s Pizza
There’s only one place where you can get pizza the way Texas does it—big and bold. That place is Big Lou’s Pizza, the only pizza place that can give you a pie that can feed an entire soccer team. Big Lou’s is known for its 42-inch pie—something that you’d have to see to believe. And once you see it, you’re going to want to eat it. Big Lou’s giant pizzas are absolutely scrumptious, and that’s more the reason why people come back for more. Don’t worry though. If big just isn’t your style, you could always opt for standard-size pizzas because they have those as well.
