The Official Saint Paul Pizza Guide
From game day to date night, we know which Saint Paul pizza will be the perfect fit for you.
A Slice of Saint Paul
We’re aware that pizza isn’t unique to Saint Paul, but we have some restaurants that combine crust, sauce, cheese and toppings in ways that other places can’t. Discover the perfect slice from these local favorites:
This Saint Paul original serves up a wide menu including pizza, subs and more, but make sure your order includes their deep-dish excellence and pair it with a local craft beer. Find Davanni's in Saint Paul at Cleveland and Grand or I-94 and White Bear Avenue.
'Authentic Italian’ implies some staple dishes and Red Rabbit certainly delivers - especially with their selection of perfectly prepared thin and crispy crusted pizzas. Settle into one of the cozy red booths lining the wall, gather ‘round a table or pull a seat up to the bar - it’s the perfect atmosphere to enjoy Red Rabbit’s craveable Italian menu.
Big River Pizza
If you’re taking the day to check out all that Lowertown has to offer, stop at Big River. This food truck turned brick-and-mortar creates pizzas with whatever's selling at the Saint Paul farmers' market that week, and it’s caught the eye of several local foodie publications.
The Pie Pizza
Italian Pie Shoppe
The argument over whether deep dish should be considered pie or pizza is one that will likely never reach a resolution but, if it tastes as good as what you can get at the Italian Pie Shoppe, we don't care what you call it. Head to Grand Avenue to get your fix.
That's right. At Mucci's, the dough is fried before the toppings are added, and then the whole pie is baked. Don't forget to pair any of these to-die-for pizzas with Mucci's Juice and finish off with a tiramisu.
Originating in Saint Paul, Punch Pizza has grown to include 10 locations. With one on Grand and one on Cleveland, you have double the options on where to indulge in delicious Neapolitan pizza fresh from a 900-degree wood-burning oven.
This is the spot when you’re looking for big slices with a foldable crust. Tommie's is the only black-owned pizzeria in the Twin Cities and they’re serving up fresh toppings, pizza by slice and grilled wings on Selby Avenue in Saint Paul.
East Coast meets Midwest
Inspired by trips to the East coast, Mario's specializes in American/Italian foods including Sicilian Pan Pizzas, Hero Sandwiches, and Zeppole Donuts. All doughs and recipes are made daily in-house using the highest quality ingredients including Bakers Field flour, Organic Bianco DiNapoli tomatoes and fresh produce.
A Slice & a Scoop
Grand Ole Creamery & Pizzeria
Scooping ice cream since 1984, Grand Ole Creamery added “Pizzeria” to its title in 2011. Order up New York-style artisan pizza and add on some delicious Grand Ole Creamery ice cream for dessert.
A Fusion of Sicily + Philly
Tono’s Pizzeria + Cheesesteaks
These fired, made-from-scratch individual-sized pizzas give you an authentic taste of Italy, where the dough and sauce recipes were developed over 45 years ago. But when going to Tono, don’t sleep on the cheesesteaks! Do Philly and Sicily play well together? You bet they do.
This local chain’s pizzas have won awards throughout the Cities, and its diverse and flexible menu makes it a great place for you and your date to order exactly what you want. It’s also a great spot for pastas and desserts.
Crash at Home
Sometimes you need pizza that’s not fancy at all — just greasy, classic and delicious. Mavericks dubs themselves Saint Paul’s best kept secret and we have to agree. This family-owned spot has all your favorite classics made with their homemade sauce and house cheese blend, as well as some funky renditions.
The Cossetta’s legacy has been passed through generations in Saint Paul, making it the best option for when your entire family gets together. If you’re getting pizza, you can also skip the cafeteria-style line.
Saint Paul Brewing

If you're looking for some old school square cut pizza, you'll find it at Mama's Pizza in the North End. This family-run spot has been in Saint Paul since 1964 and the pizza comes hot and in big portions. You’ll hear locals rave about Mama’s time and time again, and it’s a great spot to bring kids.
Gameday pizza: While this West 7th pizza joint might be an obvious choice before a Wild game, don’t count it out before your Saints baseball games.
