I just moved here about a week ago and now the search is on to find a good pizza joint. Does anyone have any suggestions? I live in the far NW valley but would be willing to travel to other parts of the city to indulge in a good pizza. Thanks!
Pizza? The best pizza in Albuquerque can be found at the Pie Shack on north Eubank. I live near UNM and it's totally worth the drive. Lots of roasted garlic, yum. Reminds me of places by the beach in SoCal
I'm with you! Probably my favorite in Albuquerque and it's in my neighborhood. I try to support my local neighborhood businesses when I can and this is some great pizza! Lots of other wonderful menu items as well!
I'm a big fan of the Pie Shack, but Saggio's is pretty good too. I like Dion's, but a lot of people seem to disagree with me on that one, so you may want to try the other places first. I like NYPD downtown (not to be confused with the other NYPDs in other areas of town-- they're part of a chain), too-- they're pretty yeasty, if you like that. Il Vicino is really good if you want a thin crust, they also have pretty much the best root beer I've ever had, which is a bonus.
I like dion's too. they have awesome ranch dressing, which is tasty on their greek salad or to dip your pizza crust in. I'm not a huge fan of saggio's, but they have some tasty pasta dishes on occasion. il vicino is one of my favorite restaurants, but I love the thin crust pizza and some people really prefer something more substantial. for that I recommend golden crown bakery on mountain just east of 12th. they make a tasty, hearty pizza crust, they have delicious canadian bacon (always a point in my book) and they also make great cookies, empanadas, and sweets. plus, they give you free biscochitos when you pick up your pizza. good pizza and *free* cookies!
