Pizza.

There is no social situation, no moment of life that can not be improved with pizza. Frozen, gourmet, discount chain pizza; put it in front of me and I’ll eat it anytime, anyplace. Lucky for us pizza passionistas whether you want cheesy cheese, mozzarella cheese, stuffed crust, EP pizza joints got you.

Here, in my humble opinion and in particular order, is where you'll find some of the best tasting pie in town.

  • Cafe Italia

    6705 N. Mesa

    The pizza here is, in a word, heavenly. Hand-made dough topped with fresh mozzarella made in-house daily, and cooked in a wood-fired brick oven. I love this place so much I almost didn't include it on this list because I wanted to keep this little gem to myself. Don't judge, it's hard enough already to get a table at times! [Website]

  • Grimaldi's Pizzeria

    Fountains at Farah

    I love the smokey taste of their hand-tossed, coal-fired brick oven pizza. The homemade mozzarella cheese and dough seal the deal. [Website]

  • Ardovino's Pizza

    206 Cincinnati St | 865. N. Resler | 1879 N. Zaragosa St | 11100 Sean Haggerty | 145 E Sunset

    Plentiful toppings and gooey cheese on a crispy thin crust; now that's what I'm talking about! There are several throughout the city, but the original Kern Place location on Cincinnati has the best ambiance. [Website]

  • Casa Pizza

    1200 Chelsea

    The sauce is oh-so tasty, the crust crispy, and the cheese plentiful. There's a reason why this place lasted over 25 years in their previous location before having to relocate. [Website]

  • The Pizza Joint

    2900 N Mesa St, 500 N Stanton & 1506 Lee Trevino

    I love how they’re a bit on the greasy side. I love that you can order by the slice. And I looove how huuuuge they are. Any pizza slice that’s wider than my face gets my vote! [Website]

  • House of Pizza

    2016 N. Piedras

    Sure, they only take cash, and, yes, parking is hard to find most of the time, but, as much of a pain in the you-know-what as those things are the pizza here is totally worth the extra effort.

  • MidiCi The Neapolitan Pizza Company

    5850 North Mesa St

    I like that it's not a thick crust. You can taste all the ingredients on the pizza as opposed to just the bread. And the fresh mozzarella is a big plus. [Website]

  • Ardovino's Desert Crossing

    1 Ardovino Dr Sunland Park, NM

    Okay, technically, this isn't located in El Paso, it's just outside city limits in Sunland Park. But I had to include them because it's close enough and their wood-fire brick-oven pizza is the bomb. My personal favorite is the Full House pizza; Canadian bacon, Italian sausage, cremini mushrooms, Mesilla Valley green chile, provolone cheese and a just a touch of roasted garlic on a thin, ever so slightly burned crust. Mmm, mmm. [Website]
