Pizza Paradise’s pie-throwing experts navigate circular vessels toward a culinary Eden where gourmet toppings burst forth from fertile soils of golden cheese. Heaps of succulent meats and crunchy veggies adorn the menu’s vast array of gourmet pizzas. The buttery canvas of the Veggie Deluxe hosts a wholesome spattering of spinach, broccoli, and other fresh-picked garden candies ($10.99–$17.99), and the Supreme asserts its dominance with a tough-guy gang of Italian meats ($12.99–$19.99). Avant-garde masterworks such as the Chicken Bacon Bleu defy traditional flavor boundaries ($12.99–$19.99). Starting at $7.99, build-your-own creations put power back into the hands of the pizza-eaters with a long list of toppings, cheeses, sauces, and crust flavors to mix and match with reckless abandon. Sides of Paradise Sticks will eagerly accompany their larger and saucier siblings to tables ($3.99), often staying up long past their bedtime, as the eatery remains open until midnight Sunday–Thursday and until 1 a.m. on Friday and Saturday nights.
A Texas institution for more than a quarter-century, DoubleDave's Pizzaworks dishes up a mouthwatering menu of freshly made pies and handcrafted pizzeria favorites.

Quell the rumbling tummies of 12 friends or three linebackers with a dozen signature pepperoni rolls ($15/dozen), or dive face-first into a savory array of DoubleDave's other homemade favorites that include philly cheesesteak, garlic spinach, and classic veggie strombolis ($6.29+/medium). Garden-noshing gastronomes can spear forks into an endless bounty of all-you-can-eat salad ($3.99+), and owners of apple-cheeked sweet teeth frown upon rebellious orders of spellcheck-snubbing Cinnamonstyxz ($3.99+). Pricing varies by location.
RedBrick Pizza blasts its prided circles in an authentic terra-cotta oven exceeding 1,000 degrees Fahrenheit, alchemically transforming their base dough into crispy gold in less than three minutes.

Enjoy stationary drive-in dining with a bacon-cheeseburger pizza topped with ground beef and three kinds of cheese ($10.50 for a small), or graze on the Veggie Gourmet Works, which comes loaded with a Peter Piper's worth of fresh vegetables, including bell peppers, artichokes, and mushrooms, swaddled in your choice of a vegetarian red or white sauce ($10.50 for a small).
Mangia's clever chefs cook up a panoply of American and Italian delights, including the signature Chicago–style deep-dish pizza replete with towering, buttery crust and heaps of cheese and tomato sauce.
