Looking for the best Puerto Vallarta pizza restaurants? You’re in the right place!
While there’s plenty of great seafood in Puerto Vallarta and all the tacos you could ever want, sometimes you just want pizza. Where does one go in this town for a slice? Read on to find out where to get the best pizza in Puerto Vallarta.
Where to get the best pizza in Puerto Vallarta
Best Pizza in Zona Romantica
Let’s start in the Romantic Zone, where most of the action in PV is. There are plenty of great options if you’re craving a pizza in the city’s bustling tourist center.
Los Muertos Brewing: This was the first Puerto Vallarta pizza place I tried and remains my go-to. They make a damn good wood-fired pie here with plenty of toppings to choose from.
You can build your own pizza or choose from their list of specialty options. Our fave is the Lazaro Cardenas with pesto, chicken, onion, spinach, and goat cheese. They’re one size fits all and can feed two to four. Peep their full menu here.
If you’re flying solo, you can always just grab a slice for 40 pesos. Come between 4-6 PM, and you can also grab a pint for that low price. It’s not the best beer in PV, but it pairs well with the pizza and is a nice break from the usual suspects.
La Piazetta: If you’re looking for more of an Italian-style pizza than a New York one, this is a solid choice. It’s just a block off the beach and appears to be a super touristy place, but don’t let that fool you.
They’re cooking up some delicious pies at this place, which are more of a personal pan operation. I like their creative options, such as the Mexicana with chorizo, onion, and hot peppers.
The great thing about having a smaller pizza is that you’ll have room for more. This is the perfect opportunity to order a couple of different ones to share or pick from their appetizers, salads, and pasta. Click here to peruse the menu.
A Taste of Italy: The name just about sums it up here. It’s located right at the end of the Malecon, so it’s the perfect place to stop for dinner if you’ve walked the whole thing.
If you’re craving pizza but don’t feel like ordering a whole one, you can give their pizza dip a try as an appetizer. They have thin crust pies with a few options named after various places in Italy.
Best Puerto Vallarta Pizza Outside of Old Town
If you’re not staying down in the Romantic Zone, never fear. There are still plenty of great pizza options out there for you. Here are some of the best spots in Centro, 5 di Diciembre, and Versalles.
The secret is definitely out about this pizza spot, so you may have to wait a bit for a table. It’s well worth it, though.
Their pizzas are superb, with a wide variety of options to choose from. My personal favorite is the Melinda with pesto, mozzarella, fresh arugula, cherry tomatoes, prosciutto, and Parmigiano Reggiano.
You can also make your own pie and even have it transformed into a calzone if you’re feeling that vibe. Click here to check out their full menu.
They also have locations in Zona Romantica and the Hotel Zone, so you’re never too far from a mouth-watering pizza.
La Dolce Vita: This Italian restaurant is quite popular in PV with several locations. This one is right on the Malecon so you can feast on pizza with the sounds of waves crashing as you enjoy some great people-watching.
Speaking of the pizza, it gets rave reviews here. Their wood-fired pies are all delicious, so you really can’t go wrong here.
A classic Margherita is hard to beat, but I opt for the Luna. It has fresh tomato sauce, mozzarella, gorgonzola cheese, prosciutto, mushrooms, and sliced eggplant. There’s a lot more than pizza going on here, so check out the menu before you go.
POP Pizzeria: This is the new kid on the block on the PV pizza scene, and it’s already making “best of lists.” My good friend Brad runs Pizza of the Plains, and he crushes it with his Sicilian slices and Detroit-style pizzas.
He’s running some pretty awesome promotions at the moment since they just opened. Pop in for a slice with a salad and a drink for just 100 pesos. There are also low/no-gluten options here, which can be hard to come by at pizza places in Mexico.
One of the best parts about visiting PoP is that one of the best dive bars in PV is right upstairs. Get your pizza fix, and then head up to Gusto Lounge for cheap beers, free pool, and great conversations.
Veggitalia: Being a vegetarian and a pizza-lover can be tough, but thankfully, there’s an excellent option for vegetarian pizzas right here in El Centro. This is a nice little restaurant with a full menu of apps, salads, pasta, and pizzas.
This is the perfect spot to grab dinner after hiking up to the cross. Enjoy the views of Banderas Bay and then sit down to a tasty vegetarian pizza. You’ve earned it!
Pizzeria Fiamma: I haven’t had the chance to try this spot yet, but my friends in Versalles swear by it. Based on Google reviews, they’re not the only ones who love it!
Seeing as how I’m basically drooling on my keyboard looking at their pizza menu, I’m heading here next time we’re in town. I’ve got my eye on their Marinara pizza with shrimp, octopus, garlic, and fresh parsley. Sounds heavenly!
