Who doesn’t love pizza? After taking a trip to Italy, I wanted to see how our local San Antonio pizzerias compared as I am all about supporting our local small business owners. Honestly I was pleasantly surprised. San Antonio doesn’t offer one signature style of pizza. You can find a wide variety of New York, Chicago, and even Sicilian style throughout the city. Check out our list of the Best Pizza in San Antonio. You’ll be dying to try them all.
Be sure to check out our other guides here.
Best Local Pizza in San Antonio
A San Antonio institution since 1980, this family-owned pizzeria is known for its New York-style pies. If you’re not looking for something by the slice, you may want to try the Sicilian pie that is usually a bit thicker. This pizzeria is at the top of our list. Be sure to ask about the cake special!

Big Lou’s Pizza
Big Lou’s is known for its oversized, 42-inch pizza that can feed a crowd all by itself. Because of this, Big Lous has also become so popular that we were recently featured on The Travel Channel’s Man vs Food. However what’s really notable here is that these pizzas also taste great no matter what size you order. Arrive early to beat the lines.
