Where to Find the Best Pizza in Fort Worth — From Detroit and New York-Style to Tasty Vegan Creations

These Pies Are Worth Your Attention For National Pi Day or Any Day

BY // 03.13.24

It’s funny how a mathematical equation can make you hungry. National Pi Day is Thursday, March 14 and, of course, that means pizza is on the menu. Fort Worth has some fabulous hometown pizzerias to choose from, as well as a few that have entered our market from nearby Dallas over the years. They are all unique, with differing doughs, and combinations of toppings, from truly traditional to out of this world.

When you are on the hunt for a fab slice, a dine-in pizza feast, or the ideal take-out pie, here are the 14 best pizza spots in Fort Worth:

 

Buffalo Bros.

Multiple Locations

3015 S. University Drive
Fort Worth, TX 76109  |  Map

Pizza – The Hawaiian pizza with Canadian bacon, pineapple and jalapeno at Buffalo Bros.

The Hawaiian pizza with Canadian bacon, pineapple and jalapeno at Buffalo Bros.

Chef Jon Bonnell’s casual dining menu at Buffalo Bros. includes wings and pizza. There are two locations of this hometown haunt, one near the TCU campus, and the other in Sundance Square. Both are pre-game, post-game, and big-game magnets with scatter television and sporting events at every turn.

The pizza is also a big draw. The popular Buffalo chicken pizza has plenty of hot sauce, chicken breast, and blue cheese, the only thing missing are the celery sticks. The Hawaiian has Canadian bacon and, yes, pineapple. And, the Beef on Weck is a pizza form of the French dip sandwich, complete with au jus and horseradish cream.

Campisi’s Restaurant

The storied pizzeria began in Dallas in the mid-1940s, before taking up residence along Mockingbird Avenue, at the former Egyptian Lounge. The Fort Worth location resides in Ridglea along Camp Bowie Boulevard, the only Tarrant County location of the still-growing pizzeria with eight others in the Dallas area.

Campisi’s is sought after for its thin, crispy crust pizzas like the All The Way littered with sausage, salami, mushroom, green onion, and green pepper.

Cane Rosso

815 W Magnolia Avenue
Fort Worth, TX 76104  |  Map

Pizza – Cane Rosso is a stickler for the authentic Neapolitan style pizza making process.

Cane Rosso is a stickler for the authentic Neapolitan style pizza making process.

At this favorite DFW spot, owner Jay Jerrier went all in on traditional Neapolitan pizza — which by definition must include imported double-zero flour imported from Italy and hand-crushed San Marzano tomatoes and fresh mozzarella cheese. This is European-style pizza, barely cooked (for 90 seconds) in a blazing hot (900-degree) pizza oven.

The knife and fork pizzas are a delicacy in America, much less Texas. But, Jerrier’s dedication to craft and refusal to turn out anything less than authentic has gained a devoted following. Pizzas come in reds like the Billy Ray Valentine with vodka sauce, bacon and bacon marmalade, or whites with Alfredo sauce bases like the Truff Daddy with bold flavors of truffle mascarpone and truffle oil.

The menu includes a wild variety including Thai chicken, garlic picanha, Mexican elote, and Turkish lamb.

With locations in Austin, Dallas, Plano, and Southlake, Delucca is adding another soon in Las Colinas and a second Fort Worth location at Alliance Town Center.

If you ask Fort Worthians about their favorite pizza, many will insist it’s Mama’s. After all, we were raised on the stuff, plus the old-school video games and buffet lunch spreads. The crust is brushed with garlic butter and the cheesy creations are a bit denser than most New York-style slices.

The homegrown pizzeria now has 11 locations spread from Granbury to Dallas, but most remain close to home. The website promises one soon for both Keller and Houston. From Canadian bacon with black olives to the perfect pepperoni, and a magical meat lovers, half the fun is building your own. Pro Tip: ask for creamy Italian dressing to mop up the crust.

It’s all about the crust at Pie Tap Pizza Workshop. It’s a crust that has helped land the Dallas-based restaurant chain on many Best Pizza lists, including PaperCity’s own Dallas pizza rankings. Fort Worth’s first Pie Tap location landed on Magnolia Avenue in 2022.

As for that crust? Pie Tap’s recipe starts with four simple ingredients: flour, water, sea salt, yeast, and olive oil, with no sugar added. It is the proprietary yeast, which is allowed to ferment for 96 hours, that creates the pizza dough. The simple sausage pizza features house-made fennel sausage, with caramelized onion and smoked mozzarella.
