Craving Pizza? Break away from your usual pizza routine and try one of these great local places to get pizza in Birmingham, AL.
I have been a HUGE fan of Salvatore’s since I was younger. They add an Italian blend of spices on top after the pizza comes out of the oven, that really kicks it up a notch. If you are ordering for one, the individual slices are huge! They also have a huge selection of pastas, calzones, and subs.
Salvatore’s Pizza has three locations:
Hoover - 1594 Montgomery Hwy, Hoover, AL 35216 (this location has a drive-thru 🙌)
280 - 4673 US-280, Birmingham, AL 35242 (this location has a drive-thru 🙌)
Trussville - 1430 Gadsden Hwy Suite # 104, Trussville, AL 35173
* If you like to splurge on calories - try the Double Chocolate Mousse Cake for dessert. It’s really rich so be prepared to split it with someone (or not).
2. Davenport’s Pizza Palace
Davenport’s is a local spot tucked away in Mountain Brook. They serve thin crust pizza cut into squares, which is a nice break from the standard triangle we all know and love, am I right? Davenport’s Pizza has won numerous awards around town so don’t just take my word for it.
Davenport’s Pizza Palace is located at 2837 Cahaba Road, Mountain Brook, AL 35223
*** Noteworthy- they are strictly a pizza and salad place.
3. Area 41 Pizza
If you don’t make it down Hwy 280 much, chances are you haven’t heard of Area 41 Pizza. It is a small storefront in Mt. Laurel with a laid back atmosphere and a killer beer menu. They have patio seating so it’s a great spot to visit when the weather is nice.
Area 41 is located at 30 Manning Place, Birmingham, AL 35242
4. Pizzeria GM
Pizzeria GM is a great date night spot with a full bar, amazing appetizers, and 2 outdoor patios. They have unique topping combinations to choose from that I have never had anywhere else. They also have a full menu of sandwiches, pastas, and salads.
Pizzeria GM is located at 600 Oak Grove Rd, Homewood, AL 35209
*** The shrimp and bacon hushpuppies are the bomb! (and pair well with any pizza 😉)
5. Slice Pizza
If you live in Birmingham, you know about Slice Pizza. They are involved in the local community and host Slice Fest, a huge block party every year. The Lakeview location has a huge patio that is really popular when the weather is nice. The pizza is thin crust, and I definitely recommend ordering one of their pizzas off the menu because they have the best combinations.
Slice Pizza has two locations:
Lakeview: 725 29th St S, Birmingham, AL 35233
Vestavia Hills: 3104 Timberlake Drive, Vestavia Hills, AL 35243
6. Tortuga’s Homemade Pizza
Hello Deep Dish! I have never felt the need to try deep dish pizza before. Why mess with something that is already so good? Tortuga’s made a me a deep-dish believer. You can order it by the slice or an entire pie. Just a warning- it fills you up a lot more than a standard piece of pizza.
Tortuga’s has two locations:
Hoover - 2801 John Hawkins Pkwy, Birmingham, AL 35244
Downtown - 1304 2nd Ave. S., Birmingham, AL
*** Tortuga’s Homemade Pizza is this year’s winner of “Best Pizza” in Hoover, AL.
7. Dave’s Pizza
Dave’s has been around for quite a while, so you know it has to be good. They offer an all-you-can-eat lunch buffet that has different types of pizzas to choose from for a great price. You dine outside under a large covered patio with tv’s, chandeliers, and live music nightly.
Dave’s Pizza is located at 1819 29th Ave. S., Homewood, AL 35209
8. IronStone Pizza
This pizza place lets you build your own personal size pizza. I didn’t know how I would feel about going through the order line like I’m ordering a burrito at Moe’s, but I am a BIG fan! All of the toppings laid out in front of you makes it fun to try new combinations.
IronStone Pizza has two locations:
Vestavia Hills - 632 Montgomery Hwy, Vestavia Hills, AL 35216
Trussville - 5445 Patrick Way Suite 101, Birmingham, AL 35235
*** One of my favorite things about IronStone is the automatic hand washer at the beginning of the order line. It is so fun to use and well planned out because shouldn’t we all be washing our hands before we eat?
9. De Vinci’s Italian Restaurant
De Vinci’s Pizza is definitely a local favorite. Their menu has a lengthy list of pizzas, pastas, and Italian house specialties. The Mona Lisa is one of their most popular pizzas covered in pepperoni, sausage, ground beef, black olives, green peppers, ham, mushrooms, onions, and everyone’s two favorite words, DOUBLE CHEESE.
De Vinci’s is located at 2707 18th St S, Homewood, Alabama 35209
