The Best Pizza in New Orleans

The OpenTable Team

New Orleans is one of the most eclectic melting pots in America. Whether it’s Mardi Gras or the mystique of voodoo, there’s no denying the city’s cultural influence on the country at large. One of its most significant contributions is Cajun cuisine, and here in NOLA, those flavors get incorporated into the pizza. From classic New York-style slices to pizza that leans towards Cajun—there’s plenty of pizza for everyone here. Welcome to our Tastemaker Lists, where we looked at our data to locate the tastemakers of New Orleans, the diners who always know where to go for a bite to eat. Here’s where they’re dining out for the best pizza in the Big Easy.
