From food truck pizza to pizza worthy of a road trip, here is your Best _____ Pizza in the Lake Travis area.
Best Food Truck Pizza
Backdraft Pizzeria is unassuming in stature but huge on taste and quality of their pie.
In the little food truck you will find a real-deal wood burning stove that delivers a light and crispy crust made from non-gmo flour, yeast, honey, salt, and love.
The owner was there to tell us about the imported San Marzano tomatoes that make the unbelievable sauce and the hand-stretched mozzarella made from Wisconsin cheese curds.
Pssst … don’t miss out on their Saturday morning Liège Waffles.
Best Kid-Friendly Pizza
Mangieri’s Pizza Cafe in Lakeway
If you are looking for a kid-friendly atmosphere that has a grown-up feel, this is the place for you.
The cafe has a beautiful interior and the staff is accommodating to families with children. They have a fantastic kid’s menu with very affordable options along with happy hour specials for the parents.
The pizza is delicious, especially with the signature whole-wheat crust. Also, who doesn’t like a good square-cut now and then?
Best Date Night Pizza
The Grove Wine Bar and Kitchen in Lakeway
The Grove is where you want to go when you want a rocking pizza without the “family” element, because this place is for the grown-ups.
There is a “Wine Lover’s Pizza” with fig, gorgonzola, prosciutto, mozzarella, fontina, and lemon arugula that is paired divinely with one of The Grove’s famous wine flights.
Combine that with breath-taking views and a gorgeous interior and you got the perfect pizza date spot right in your backyard!
Best Community Supporter Pizza
This place has been a neighborhood stand-by since 2003. Craig, the owner, is a huge supporter of the Lake Travis athletes and is always giving back to the communities his businesses operate in.
The pizza dough to the sauce is made from scratch and you can taste the difference. And as far as we know, it’s the only pizza place in the Lake Travis area that offers a gluten free pizza.
The Lakeway location also has a playground for the kids — huge bonus for hungry parents!
Best NY in LT Pizza
Jersey Giant Pizza in Bee Cave
Are you craving authentic, New York-style pizza slices that are as big as your face? Then stop in at the humble Jersey Giant Pizza.
The crust is thin, cooked crispy, and sturdy enough to hold all the toppings you can throw on it.
This place is great for feeding a family that can’t decide on one type of pizza. The slices are substantial enough to leave everyone feeling full.
Plus, like any good NY neighborhood spot, the owner is almost always there and ready to make sure you are “loving his pizza” (insert Italian accent).
Best Worth The Drive Pizza
Any trip to the Hill Country would be well served to stop at Pieous Pizza. This spot has absolutely delicious Neapolitan style pizzas along with a real wood-fire oven, homemade sausage, and fresh ingredients.
You have to try the “Brussels and Jam” pizza — the flavor combo with rock your socks off. If brussel sprouts aren’t your thing then try “The Rocket” with arugula, prosciutto, and white sauce.
Combine this deliciousness with a comfy dining atmosphere and famous Hill Country hospitality and you have a pizza experience that’s worth the drive.
There you have it! Let us know if we missed your favorite place or if we nailed it.
