Pizza in NOLA - where?

Hi. Promised my vegetarian friend we can get pizza somewhere tonight (she's been a good sport and has allowed me to eat-at-will here thus far). Any good pizza recs? Is Louisinana Pizza Kitchen good?

  1. LPK is good but I prefer Theo's Pizza on Magazine. They have several specialty pizzas that you could definetly do minus the meat and they are still wonderful. The Hippie and the Artie Garlic are all veggie and superb. Naked Pizza is also pretty good with all natural toppings and ingredients.

      Rocky's on Magazine is good, as are Theo's (also Magazine) and Slice (St. Charles).

        Theo's or Slice get my vote. Both good pizza joints.

      2. I am very much the meat eater, but the Sun Pie and the Quattro at Reginelli's have always satiated my need for good pizza.

        Second Theo's also and both Reginelli's and Theo's have a more upbeat atmosphere than LPK in my opinion.


        1. Hope it's not too late, but LPK is very good. It's much different than regular pizza - smaller, crispier (but still with a good crust) and a well proportioned amount of toppings. Plus the location is nice, right across from the Old U.S. Mint, right on the corner.

          1. Louisiana Pizza Kitchen is good. Reginelli's and Warehouse District Pizza are my favs.

              Is the Louisiana Pizza Kitchen uptown on Carrollton at St. Charles another branch of the same place? Is the Uptown branch as good?

              I vote Slice or Reginelli's, although do NOT get any wine at Slice.

                The two LPK restaurants were formerly owned by the same couple, but a messy divorce got them each their own LPK (so I was told by a waiter at the FQ location). They both carry similar dishes, but I have yet to try pizza at either. FWIW, I prefer the atmosphere and some of the dishes at the FQ LPK.

            2. New York Pizza when hot and fresh is the best pizza in the city. I an't beleive no one mentioned it! Best Sausage, best sauce, and they brush the crust with butter garlic. I would pick SLICE after New York. theo's is decent but to my taste New York Pizza rules in New Orleans!

                I also like ny pizza. I love their "queens" pizza. Only problem is it's expensive.

                  Have you tried Cafe Nino on Carrolton?

                  1. re: mortalcoil

                    +1 Cafe Nino. new orleans sure aint a pizza town (dont get me started), but Nino's is the closest thing to lovable foldable east coast pie. nice folks, too.
