Pizza, it’s been called the perfect food (well by myself at least). There are few other dishes that can be considered iconic staples of American dining. Sure, we’ve got the classic hamburger, but nothing seems to please diners of all ages like a piping hot, cheesy pizza. If you’re planning a visit to Walt Disney World, you may be wondering where the best places to grab a slice are at the resort. As many connoisseurs know, not all pizzas are created equal, so let’s run down our choices for the tastiest pizza in all of Walt Disney World!
5. Trattoria al Forno
Our first stop is located at Disney’s Boardwalk Inn and is known mainly for its Bon Voyage Adventure character breakfast. What many might not know is that Trattoria al Forno is also a great place for pizza dinner. Guests can enjoy a full menu of Italian dishes including some delicious pizzas including the classic Pizza Margherita made with crushed tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, basil, and Villa Manodori Olive Oil. For a more adventurous taste, the menu also features pizzas like Pizza di Tartufo with assorted mushroom, Ricotta Crèma, truffle essence, and Fontina cheese or Pizza di Capicollo with apicollo Piccante, roasted garlic, La Tur, Rocket, and lemon. Kids can even get classic pizza selections like cheese and pepperoni.
4. Blaze Fast-Fire’d Pizza
If you’re the kind of pizza eater that doesn’t like to share, then our next pick is just for you. Blaze Fast-Fire’d Pizza in Disney Springs serves 11” personal pies that can be customized with over 40 delicious toppings and sauces. Guests can choose from signature selections like the Meat Eater with pepperoni, meatballs, red onion, mozzarella and red sauce or create their own with whatever they like. Each pizza is made-to-order on fresh dough and fired in their open-flame oven and cooked in a matter of minutes. Ingredients are free from artificial colors, flavors or preservatives and gluten-free dough and vegan cheese are available upon request.
3. Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill
Celebrity chef Wolfgang Puck is well known for being a pioneer in California cuisine. He’s brought his lineup of delectable new takes on classic dishes to Disney Springs, and that includes gourmet pizza! These are not your usual fast-food pizzas and feature exquisite toppings like prosciutto, smoked salmon, and basil shrimp. While these options aren’t what you’ll usually find at your local pizza joint, the flavors are dynamic and raise pizza to a new level of fine dining.
2. Pizza Ponte
If you don’t want a whole pie to satisfy your pizza craving, then you’ll want to make a stop at Disney Springs Quick Service location Pizza Ponte. This spot serves Sicilian-style pizza by the slice as well as a selection of sandwiches and desserts. If you aren’t familiar with Sicilian-style pizza, it’s the one that is made with a thick and fluffy crust and rectangle in shape. These slices are massive and feature toppings like porchetta and forest mushrooms. This is a great spot to grab a slice to go and enjoy Disney Springs shopping and entertainment.
1. Via Napoli Ristorante e Pizzeria
Our number one pick for the best pizza at Walt Disney World is located in the Italy pavilion of Epcot’s World Showcase. Via Napoli is a charming Table Service location serving authentic Italian cooking, including pasta, fresh salads, and pizzas perfected in wood-burning ovens. Gigantic traditional Neapolitan pizzas are made-to-order with fresh mozzarella cheese, San Marzano tomatoes and Caputo flour imported from Southern Italy. Water for the dough is sourced from a spring similar to Italy’s Campania region giving these pizzas an unmatched taste that makes you feel like you’re enjoying a pie delivered straight from the source. If you’re in a hurry, we suggest stopping at our honorable mention entry Pizza al Taglio. This grab-and-go window is located on the facade of Via Napoli and serves slices of Sicilian-style pizza that are just as tasty as the thin crust options served inside.
