This pizza is so good it’s certified. There aren’t many places in ABQ to get real Neapolitan pizza, but Amore’s owners are officially endorsed by the Associazione Pizzaiuoli Napoletani. The pies feature house-made mozzarella, dough and sauce. The salads are fresh and organic, and you can stay indoors or go out on the Green Jeans patio to eat your slice of heaven. That’s Amore!

Brickyard Pizza

2216 Central Ave SE (University)

Meals Served: LunchDinnerOpen Late

4.36 rating (78 votes)
Brickyard Pizza is known for fast slices and beers on the cheap. It's the only full bar directly across from UNM, making it the prime watering hole for your post-theater and post- or pre-class needs. It also sometimes has live music and, usually, more televised sports than you can handle. The best thing about Brickyard, though, is that it's also the only noncorporate pizza establishment with late-night delivery (until 2:30am on Friday and Saturday and until 1:30am all other nights) in Burque, which satiates an otherwise unfortunate void.

Carraro's Pizza & Joe’s Place

3.37 rating (92 votes)
In the front, it's a standard restaurant laid out with a small bar and big window facing the street. Travel a short way through a blacklit hall and enter the kind of divey neighborhood hangout this city needs more of, complete with TVs, a jukebox, a ping-pong table, air hockey and arcade games. Though the entire menu is available no matter where you choose to spend your time, you can't go wrong with the twisty-crust pizza. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Dion’s Pizza

4717 Central Ave NE (Upper Nob Hill)
Albuquerque NM 87108
(505) 265-6919
Sun-Thurs: 10:30am-10pm Fri-Sat: 10:30am-11pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinnerOpen Late
Nearby Theater: Guild Cinema (See Film Times)

3.65 rating (20 votes)
Besides having the Best Pizza, according to past Best of Burque Restaurants polls, Dion's also has a wonderful selection of salads—particularly the Greek or any of the “gourmet” salads with spring-mix greens—sandwiches (the pastrami is especially good) and out-of-this-world house ranch dressing. The pizza is made fresh, and the folks at Dion’s have had over 30 years to perfect their unique Albuquerque take on pizza pie. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Farina Pizzeria & Wine Bar

510 Central Ave SE (Downtown)
Albuquerque NM 87102
Mon: 11am-9pm Tues-Fri: 11am-10pm Sat: Noon-10pm Sun: 5-9pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner
Cuisine: Pizza, Fine Dining

4.07 rating (113 votes)
Across Edith from the Artichoke Café, Farina’s proximity to some of the most established fine dining in Albuquerque isn't an accident. Farina is the punked-up younger sibling of jazzy Artichoke Café, and it brings a tantalizingly direct message to the neighborhood: pizza, beer and wine, and all of it damn good. Sharp, concise and to the point, with 20 superb choices offered by the glass or bottle. Farina’s wine list is straightforward and focused. The bar is comfortable and every wine is perfectly matched to the kitchen’s chic pizzeria offerings. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Firenze Pizzeria

900 Park Ave SW (Downtown)
Albuquerque NM 87102
Mon-Sat: 11am-8pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner
Cuisine: Pizza, Italian

5 rating (5 votes)
This hidden Downtown gem serves up simple, delicious pizza. Additionally, they have a few salads and desserts avaliable for consumption. They cater and are able to drag around a wood burning stove with them wherever they go so you never have to worry about lost quality if you see them around town. They also offer delievery for those who are within a 1.5 mile radius of their location! (Alibi Staff, June 25, 2014)

Golden Crown Panadería

1103 Mountain NW (Old Town)
Albuquerque NM
(505) 243-2424
Tues-Sat: 7am-8pm Sun: 10am-8pm Closed Monday (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: BreakfastLunchDinner

3.71 rating (33 votes)
Walking into the Golden Crown Panadería, you have the sense of entering someone’s home. Countertops flow over with pan dulce, bolillos (Mexican hard rolls) and Appaloosa bread (dark and light rye swirled). glass-fronted case proudly displays fruit empanadas and delicious flaky dessert flautas (in lemon and apricot) coated in powdered sugar. Golden Crown's green chile bread is made with tomatoes, parmesan cheese, cilantro, onions and spices and decorated with the design of a coyote howling at the moon. And there’s fresh-baked pizza. And coffee drinks, and fresh-picked salads grown hydroponically just inside the front door. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Il Vicino

10701 Corrales Blvd NW (Westside)
Albuquerque NM
(505) 899-7500
Sun-Thu 11am-11pm Fri-Sat 11am-midnight (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinnerOpen Late

2.5 rating (4 votes)
Il Vicino’s thin-crusted, gourmet-topped pizzas are perennial favorites among Alibi readers, but the big salads are equally popular. Order at the register and a server brings the food to your table, making weekday lunches speedy. The open kitchen gives you something to stare at while you wait. Stop in for a quick lunch or a late afternoon microbrew on the patio.

Irrational Pie supplies some of the best American-style pizza we’ve ever had. Our personal test to find good pizza is to order a Margherita pizza: It’s simple and just delicate enough to know if a chef knows what they’re doing, and time after time we’ve proved they have more than capable kitchen staff here. It’s a food truck, so they’ll likely be near you at some point during the week but if not, it’s worth seeking them out. (Alibi Staff, October 8, 2015)

JC’s New York Pizza Department

215 Central Ave NW (Downtown)
suite B

Get your late-night pizza fix and a pint on Downtown’s favorite patio. It makes a perfect vantage point for people-watching on the weekends. The back room is stocked with vintage ’80s tabletop arcade games, several beers on tap, flat-screen TVs and a discreet outdoor patio. Just wander back through the parking lot to the north of the existing NYPD, or spread out in the expanded front room. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Pizza Barn

11 Plaza Loop (East Mountains)
Edgewood NM 87015
(505) 286-2700
Sun-Mon: 11:30am-8pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner
Cuisine: Pizza, Italian

3.75 rating (4 votes)
This unassuming pizza joint just off the I-40 Edgewood exit is notable specifically for its thin and very crispy crust. The pies are baked on screens and served on perforated pans so the crust never gets soggy. Pies come in three sizes—personal (10-inch), small (14-inch) and large (16-inch). And yes, there is beer. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Tomato Cafe

5920 Holly Ave NE (Far Northeast Heights)
Albuquerque NM
(505) 821-9300
Mon-Sun: 11am-8:30pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner
Nearby Theater: Century Rio (See Film Times)

3.68 rating (57 votes)
One of you wants pizza, another insists on soup and salad, the third won’t eat anything but pasta. Don’t waste time fighting; just get on over to Tomato Cafe. It’s quick, inexpensive and all-you-can-eat. Those aren’t usually words you’d use to describe genuinely good food but the pizza here is. Super-thin-crusted and topped with things like feta, basil, barbecued chicken and artichoke hearts, it’s a dream come true (except for Chicago-style fans). (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Trail Rider Pizza

544 State Hwy 333 (East Mountains)
Tijeras NM 87059
(505) 281-6068
Mon-Sun: 11am-8:30pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner
Cuisine: Pizza, Italian

3.92 rating (12 votes)
No matter the city, the best pizza usually comes from the least likely joint. For the East Mountains, that joint happens to be a small, converted mobile home in the parking lot next to Molly's Bar in Tijeras. Fresh ingredients, liberal use of cheese and one of the best New York-style crusts west of the Hudson River make Trail Rider the only place in Tijeras you should consider buying a pizza from. Yeah, there's some driving involved for most of you, but you won't be able to resist eating your pie in the car on the way home. It’s got salads and sandwiches, too. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Turtle Mountain Brewing Company

905 36th Place SE (Rio Rancho)
Rio Rancho NM
(505) 994-9497
Sun: 11 am-9 pm Mon-Thurs: 11 am-9:30 pm Fri-Sat: 11 am-8:30 pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinner

4.7 rating (34 votes)
They take beer seriously here, and Turtle Mountain is one of the few places west of the river where you'll find house-brewed beer. Don't leave without trying the thin-crusted pizzas or a calzone. Oh, and order some root beer for the kids—that's made there too.

Village Pizza

Corrales NM 87048
(505) 898-0045…
Sun-Thu 11am-8pm Fri-Sat: 11am-9pm (hours can change without notice)
Meals Served: LunchDinnerOpen Late
Cuisine: Pizza, New Mexican

3.33 rating (6 votes)
This pizza is worth leaving your own neighborhood. Everyone in Corrales is a regular here, with a selection of more than 25 fresh toppings and four types of hand-tossed crusts to choose from. The enormous patio is great for people-watching in the spring and summer, especially with a beer in hand. (Alibi Staff, May 5, 2011)
