Updated June 2019
Love pizza? You’re going to love Orlando! No matter your preferred style — New York, Chicago deep-dish, Neapolitan or even Hawaiian — you’ll find it at dining districts all over town, including these 10 incredible pizza parlors.
Via Napoli Ristorante e Pizzeria
Inspired by Southern Italy, the family-friendly Via Napoli Ristorante e Pizzeria at Walt Disney World® Resort’s Epcot® serves authentic, wood-fired Neapolitan pizza. Made with fresh mozzarella cheese, San Marzano tomatoes and real Caputo flour, the pies are cooked in wood-burning ovens named after Italy’s Mount Etna, Mount Vesuvius and Stromboli volcanos.
Red Oven Pizza Bakery™
Located at Universal CityWalk, Red Oven Pizza Bakery features an inventive menu of red and white, Neapolitan-style pizzas, each of which is built from scratch before being cooked in a 900-degree, stone-lined oven. And because of the intense heat, your pizza will be baked to perfection in 90 seconds or less.
Located in Winter Park, about 20 minutes from downtown Orlando, Prato is an acclaimed Italian restaurant spearheaded by award-winning chef Brandon McGlamery, who also creates the dishes at Winter Park’s Luma on Park and Luke’s Kitchen in the nearby city of Maitland. Their savory pizzas are cooked in an authentic, wood-burning oven that was crafted in Naples, Italy.
This family of restaurants has been part of the local culinary scene for decades, with locations in Orlando (including one in the International Drive entertainment, dining and shopping district) and in the nearby city of Winter Park, about 20 minutes from downtown Orlando. The secret to Mellow Mushroom’s success is hearty, inventive pies, which are served in fun, art-filled, family-friendly environments.
A true hidden gem, this self-described "pizza joint" is in Orlando’s Conway neighborhood, about 10 minutes from the heart of downtown. It’s the brainchild of Chef Bruno Zacchini, who helped open Cask & Larder with award-winning chefs James and Julie Petrakis. Custom orders are accepted, but be sure to try one of Zacchini’s signature creations at least once.
With locations all over town, including several close to the theme parks, Flippers is an original Orlando chain that’s enjoyed great success by making amazing pizzas. In addition to mouthwatering pies, their stores offer sandwiches, pasta and other Italian dishes. Better still, they’ll deliver right to your hotel, resort or villa. Locations in Orlando’s tourism district include Highway 192, Kissimmee, Lake Buena Vista, Rialto and South International Drive.
This Chicago transplant has two locations in Orlando and one in Kissimmee, and all three are close to the theme parks. As their city of origin suggests, Giordano’s serves deep-dish, stuffed pizza that’s picked up numerous honors through the years. If you’re looking for something less filling, thin-crust pizzas are also available.
Brick & Fire Pizza & Pasta Parlor
An Orlando original, this pizzeria has been wowing locals for the past 10 years, and for good reason. Chef Mark Dollard makes his dough by hand using extra-virgin olive oil and live yeast beer from his neighbors at Orlando Brewing. The result is perfect, brick-fired pizzas with crust that’s crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside.
Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza
From imported plum tomatoes to the best Grande mozzarella, Anthony’s prides itself on using fresh ingredients. What really makes the pizzas stand out, though, is Anthony’s signature coal-fired oven. You can find their Orlando location 10 minutes from Universal, with a second spot in Altamonte Springs, about 25 minutes from downtown Orlando.
Armando’s Cucina Italiana & Pizzeria
With locations in Winter Park and College Park, both about 15 minutes from downtown Orlando, this eatery features authentic Italian cuisine from Napoli and other Italian regions, plus an extensive wine list. You can choose from 12 different house pies or create your own for the perfect combination.
