Deep-dish or thin crust? Red sauce or white? No matter what you’re into, Austin has a pizza destination that’s sure to be right up your alley. Gone are the days of the limited national and local chain stores when it comes to delivery, with our partners at Favor Delivery, you can now order from dozens of the best spots in town without “Papa” or “Hut” in their titles.
Our list of the 10 Best Pizza Delivery Options in Austin hadn’t been updated since 2015, which is a lifetime in Austin restaurant years! Below you’ll find a list with some classic favorites, and newcomers as well. There is a ton of pizza variety on this list—something for everyone! And because Favor is #AnythingDelivered, you can get all of these restaurants delivered straight to your door.
We also produced a podcast episode with Rachel Holtin from @AustinFoodstagram that takes a deeper dive into her and 365 Founder Kristy Owen’s favorite spots for pizza around town. Be sure to give it a listen here:
Without further ado, here are our best bets for pizza delivery in Austin for 2019!
If you’re a fan of Homeslice, give this mom-and-pop joint hidden in the Crestview neighborhood a shot. The counter-service restaurant is also great for date nights or just grabbing a quick slice. It’s arguably one of the best NYC-style (Jersey-style if you want to get technical) pizzas you’ll find in the city.
Craft brewing and craft pizza collide at Pinthouse. They claim their pizza is “artisanal but not gourmet.” We just think it’s delicious. Do yourself a favor by adding a couple of pizza rolls to your delivery order, and don’t forget the ranch!
Fans of fresh produce on pies should add this spot to their delivery rotation. The specialty pizza menu here changes with the seasons and never disappoints. Expect wild toppings like purple potatoes, fried okra, and saffron.
If you want a paper-thin crust, the team at Eastside Pies does it best. They also offer sauces outside of typical red and white variety, with options like black bean or chimichurri. ESP also recently opened a spot off of 183 that radically increased their delivery zone.
This recently opened Nashville transplant serves up delicious Neapolitan-style pizza from wood-burning ovens imported from Naples, Italy. During lunch and late-night hours, they also serve individual sized pies, so don’t be afraid to order alone!
The former pizza king of Dripping Springs recently moved to an Austin address, and thanks to Favor, you can now get it delivered to just about anywhere in the city. This is seriously one of the best pizzas in town, so if the drive has been what’s stopping you from trying them out, you no longer have that excuse.
The best bet for pizza after a long night on Red River, Hoboken Pies offers great Jersey-Style pizza that was practically made for delivery. Try the Mission—a white pie with mission fig, pineapple, prosciutto, goat cheese, and Italian parsley.
This South Austin staple has been a go-to for delivery pizza and their expansion to four locations guarantees quick delivery times and top-notch quality pies.
We love a good small-business success story, and this food-truck turned brick and mortar is just that. Their East 6th Street location crafts pizzas from overnight-rising dough and daily hand-cut toppings.
Serving ‘Texas Inspired Italian Pies,” Toss recently opened a Westlake location in addition to their South First Street home. This family-owned pizzeria is quickly becoming a favorite amongst locals.
No Austin pizza list would be complete without Homeslice. Widely regarded as the best pizza in Austin, you can now skip the (often an hour plus) waits that were once required to try their pie, and order it straight to your door. A newer North Loop location also expands access to this hometown favorite.
Conveniently located downtown, Numero 28 has classic Neapolitan-style pies and a great wine list. For your next party, have their massive 28-inch extra large pie delivered.
Another food-truck-to-brick-and-mortar success story, 40 North serves up exceptional wood-fired pies. Owner and Chef, Clint Elmore has brought his years of experience and learning from pizza joints in NYC to the streets of Austin.
If you’ve never tried Detroit-style pizza, you’re in for a treat. Their signature rectangle pies come out of the oven with perfectly crispy edges and a sauce (sometimes on top!) that’s to die for. Try the Cadillac, a pie with gorgonzola, fig preserves, prosciutto di parma, parmesan, and balsamic glaze.
Nestled in a small space behind Parkside on a section of 6th Street not normally associated with fine dining, The Backspace offers amazing Neapolitan pies in a romantic setting. The pizzas aren’t huge, so you can definitely order two (or more) for delivery and share (or not) with a friend.
This list purposely isn’t ranked, but if it were, Bufalina would be our founder Kristy Owen’s No. 1 spot! She personally enjoys going for their happy hour the most (50% off all pizzas, and half-priced bottled wines under $100 from 4-5:30 p.m. daily), but thanks to Favor, Bufalina is now available for delivery as well.
Kristy’s go-to order: Margherita Pizza, add pepperoni. She also loves the harissa pizza, with summer squash, salsa verde, pickled onion, and peanuts.
