Where to Find the Best Pizza in El Paso
There is no social situation, no moment of life that can not be improved with pizza. Lucky for us pizza passionistas there are some great mom-and-pop pizzerias here in El Paso to put that statement to a test.
Here, in no particular order, are my Top 6 locally owned pizza joints that consistently do fantastic pizza and that I’ve been supporting for years:
House of Pizza
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.
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]
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 relocating to West El Paso.
The Pizza Joint
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!

Plentiful toppings on not-too-thick-not-too-thin crust; now that’s what I’m talking about!
Frequent Visitor Tip: turn your leftover crusts into dessert by pouring some Nona’s honey on them. [Website]
Don’t let the fact that it’s a small hole-in-the-wall scare you away. This upper valley hidden gem is legit. And the pie is the closest you’ll get to a New York pizza in El Paso .
Frequent Visitor Tip: Make sure you have cash because they don’t accept credit or debit cards.
