7 Can’t-Miss Pittsburgh Pizza Spots

Remember Tony Manero’s confident, big-slice-energy at the start of Saturday Night Fever? That’s what pizza is all about: delicious, easy, and equally suitable for on-the-hoof speed or a relaxed sit-down meal. TABLE staff is stayin’ alive with these Western PA choices.

Iron Born Pizza

Strip District and Millvale
Delicious Detroit-inspired square pizzas. Sit down in their Strip District restaurant, or pick up a pie from their takeout-only Millvale spot.

Pizzeria Davide

Strip District and Robinson
Try the Old World Pizza, a beautiful pie topped with provolone cheese and sauce, along with Parmesan, basil, and oregano.


Shadyside and Fox Chapel
A classic Neapolitan pizza so divine, you’ll consider eating a slice with fine cutlery.

Beto’s Pizza

1473 Banksville Road
In perhaps the city’s most controversial pizza strategy, Beto’s serves pizzas topped with fresh *cold* provolone cheese. Decide for yourself!

Slice on Broadway

Beechview, Carnegie, East Liberty, South Side, Wexford
We recommend the thin New York-style crust, but thicker versions are available. Gathering with a group of friends? You can’t go wrong with Slice’s “ginormous” 20-inch pie.

Driftwood Oven

3615 Butler Street
An artisan sourdough pizzeria and bakery, featuring both thin New York-style pies and a thicker Roman-style. The weekend patisserie offerings are NOT TO BE MISSED.

Della Terra 

100 N. Main Street, Zelienople
Just get in the car and go! Whether you’re ordering a pie featuring a homemade sourdough crust, or an order of pasta, made with freshly-milled flour and free-range eggs, Della Terra succeeds at recreating the essence of an Italian trattoria. Pair a white pizza with a glass of red.
