A Slice of Saint Paul

A Slice of Saint Paul

From game day to date night, we know which Saint Paul pizza will be the perfect fit for you.

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. Here are some of our local favorites and when you should try them out:

Big River Pizza

Feeling fresh 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.

Black Sheep

Dinner with friends pizza: With Camp Bar and Tin Whiskers Brewing just around the corner, this is a perfect place to grab some food and catch up with friends before poking around the area a bit.


Crash at home pizza: Sometimes you need pizza that’s not fancy at all — just greasy, classic and delicious. The Carbone family started serving up pizza in 1954, and it’s the perfect slice (or square, for those very particular Saint Paul readers) after you’re done with a long day and ready to unwind with a movie.


The family reunion pizza: 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.


This Saint Paul original now has multiple locations and serves up a wide menu including pizza, subs and more. Find Davanni's in Saint Paul at Cleveland and Grand or I-94 and Whtie Bear Avenue.

Italian Pie Shoppe

"Is this pizza or pie?" pizza: 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. 

Mama’s Pizza

After work pizza: If you're looking for some old school pizza in great proportions, you'll find it at Mama's Pizza in the North End. You’ll hear locals rave about this pizza time and time again, and it’s a great spot to bring kids.

Mucci's Italian

Fried pizza: 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.

Pizza Lucé

Date night pizza: 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. (Pictured right)The best pizzas in Saint Paul

Punch Pizza

Wood-Burned pizza: 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. 

Skinner's Pub

Hang by the bar pizza: Skinner's is your classic neighborhood bar and grill with great people and better pizza. Don't be afraid to step out of your comfort zone to try something different, like their famous Reuben pizza. 


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. If someone in your crew inexplicably doesn’t want pizza, Zamboni’s also does great gyros and sandwiches. (Pictured above)
