There’s a pizza for everyone, from the picky toddler to the late-night reveler and the sophisticated gourmand.
From wood-fired to deep-dish, you can go traditional or dress it up with fancy toppings like fig jam. Get enough for a crowd or order individual pies that are made from scratch and baked in front of you.
On Central Standard’s annual pizza show, our Food Critics searched out the best pizza in and around Kansas City.
Here are their recommendations:
Jenny Vergara, Feast Magazine:
- Neapolitan wood-fired pizza:
- Pizzabella — prosciutto pizza. Topped with marinara, shaved prosciutto, mozzarella and Parmesan, and finished off with arugula, and butter lettuce salad.
- Il Lazzarone — Margherita. San Marzano tomatoes, mozzarella, basil, extra-virgin olive oil, sea salt.
- 1889 Pizza Napoletana — Green Eggs & Ham. Basil pesto, fresh mozzarella, Prosciutto di Parma, arugula and extra virgin olive oil, plus an egg.
