Slurping wetly and noisily at the nourishment that is New Orleans.

Our country has an obsession for pizza and New Orleans is no exception. Over the past couple of years, our city has seen a virtual explosion of pizzerias, all determined to out-pie the last with authentic, wood-fired ovens, crust that is hand-made daily and a bevvy of fresh, local ingredients.

Pizza Delicious ~ 617 Piety St.

Open now in their own brick & mortar in Bywater, Pizza Delicious started out as a once-a-week pop-up crusade to show folks in New Orleans what New York pizza is really like… and they succeeded. Stop in the casual, Piety Street shop for simple, but heavenly Margherita with fresh mozzarella, olive oil, Parmesan and basil.

Wood Pizza Bistro & Taphouse ~ 404 Andrew Higgins Dr.

Located in the Warehouse District, just a hop and a jump from Cochon Restaurant, Wood is a pizzeria that just opened a couple of months ago with young Chef Will Salisbury at the helm. Guzzle your choice of brew with their Mushroom Pizza crafted with garlic cream sauce, asiago cheese, red onion, fresh mozzarella, olive oil and a sunny-side-up egg right in the middle.

Paladar 511 ~ 511 Marigny St.

Opened mere weeks ago by two restaurateurs from West Coast, Paladar 511 features California-style cuisine with an emphasis on pizza. Start off with a Summer Melon Caprese Salad and then share a pie with spicy, San Marzano tomato sauce, mascarpone cheese and wild arugula. You may even have room for some Louisiana Blueberry Pie for dessert!
