Best Pizza in Minneapolis Depends on the Crust

Where can one find the best pizza in Minneapolis?

A great pizza is a joy forever. I have sampled the best pizza in Minneapolis, and I'm ready to make my recommendations to you.

What I discovered, however, is that what's "best" depends on what you like. So I have divided pizza places into a few categories and then awarded first prize.


Best Hand-tossed Pizza

The best hand-tossed pizza in Minneapolis is Fat Lorenzo's. Their crust is pillow soft and their spicy sweet sauce is generously spread over their enormous pizzas. The ambiance is often loud and crowded, so call and order in and take it home to enjoy without the crowd.

This is a great spot in the summer to have a pizza outside. Enjoy the breeze and then finish your meal with some gelato.

Best Organic/Local

Galactic Pizza wins this easily. For one, they are one of the few restaurants (not just pizza places) that commits themselves to organic and local ingredients completely. Their delivery people dress as super heroes, drive electric car and deliver world-saving pizza. That is hard to beat. A little pricier than most pizza places, but worth the cost in quality and originality. Their 'Shroomer pizza has a delicious combination of mushrooms.

Best Thin Crust

I don't know how Dulono's escapes the attention of food reviewers and chow hounds. They have the best thin crust pizza in the city. Thin crust put the focus squarely where we want it: the toppings. Plus, the restaurant is a throw-back to a different era: goofy stuff on the walls and free blue grass on Fridays and Saturdays. Settle in with a pitcher of Premium and stay for the show. They have a full menu, but stick to pizza.
