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. Discover the perfect slice from these local favorites:

Deep Dish


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. Pictured above.


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. 

Fried Crust

Mucci's Italian

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.


Punch 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. 

New York-style

Tommie's Pizza

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.

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. 

The New Kid

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.

Date Night

Pizza Lucé

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. 

Dinner With Friends

Black Sheep

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

Crash at Home

Mavericks Pizza

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.

Family Reunion


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.

Patio Party

Saint Paul Brewing

Enjoy this patio with personality and sip craft beer made on-site while you chow down on these funky pizzas with names like I’m Greeking Out!, Number of the Beast and Baby One More Time. But don’t let the names deter you, the flavors are on point! 


Mama’s Pizza

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.

Game Day


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.
