Find Pizza Near You in Buffalo, New York

Buffalo is a city in New York state nestled against the furthest north-east shore of Lake Erie, and snug up against the US and Canadian border. Buffalo may be a massive urban spread covering over fifty square miles, but it's also where the Niagara River begins its journey before cascading over one of America's most famous natural landmarks, Niagara Falls.

It's hard to define whether it's the city's close proximity to Canada or if the influx of European immigrants during the late 19th century influenced the development of Buffalo's gastronomical style. It's a style that has set Buffalo apart from many other cities and garnered it third place on National Geographic's World's Top Ten Food Cities list.

With Buffalo being in New York state you may well expect to see New York-style pizza as a predominant feature on the city's pizza menus. Forget it. Pizzas in Buffalo have been different since the first ones were served by a Neapolitan in the late 1920s.

Buffalo, New York, is known for Buffalo-style pizza

When you're in a city that's a world leader in cuisine, you can guarantee the pizza is going to be outstanding. And yes, Buffalo-style pizza is in a league of its own and for several reasons too. What makes Buffalo-style pizza different from any other? If you're someone who usually leaves your plate or the take-out box littered with discarded chunks of nibbled on crusts, you won't be doing that with a Buffalo-style pizza. These pies are practically crustless. It's a dough preparation method that originated in the Italian city of Napoli and is also used in Napoli-style pizzas. It's not only the thin base of a Buffalo-style pie where differences occur, but in the way the toppings are added. Forget neat and tidy cookery. A Buffalo-style pizza has lashings of everything that, similar to Niagara Falls, cascade down its edges forming a delicious cheesy mess for you to mop up.

Best delivery pizza in Buffalo

Being hungry, no matter what time of the day or night it may be, is not funny. It could in fact be classed as a dire emergency. Well, one pizzeria in Buffalo has you covered and that's Emergency Pizza. Emergency Pizza is housed in an old brick building on Seneca Street. It’s antiquated outside and the pizzeria's facade isn't designed to aesthetically please, but rather just to let you know they offer a twenty-four-hour pizza delivery service in Buffalo. Inside is more or less the same no-frills story too. Think fast food takeaway, bright, clean, and completely streamlined for the job in hand. Nothing gets in the way of Emergency Pizza deliveries either, not even chairs and tables. Here it's standing room only. That means when you make an order the delivery guy can make a swift and problem-free exit to get your Supreme Deluxe Buffalo-style pizza to you on time.

Best takeout pizza in Buffalo

If you've been visiting Buffalo Zoo or are making your way to the campus at Buffalo University and don't have time to stop for a meal, Mustachio's will make you one of the best take-out pizzas in Buffalo. Mustachio's Pizza is on Elmwood Avenue. That's a broad road with plenty of space to pull up kerbside while you're collecting your order. You can't miss Mustachio's. The pizzeria occupies a position right on the street corner and its sunshine-bright signage is dazzling. A massive yellow mustache adorns the facade so you'll soon get the general idea you’re in the right place. Mustachio's have been feeding their local community with Buffalo-style pizza since 1989. Not only do they serve their pies round, but in a mega twenty-four slice sheet bake too. Don't expect imaginative toppings, they don't do them, apart from broccoli. They do have a wide choice of all the normal pizza ingredients though and they're more than enough to satisfy even the most discerning pizza lover.

Best pizza near Buffalo

Cheektowaga


You're quite likely to find yourself in Cheektowaga if you've flown in from out of state to visit Niagara Falls. The Buffalo Niagara International Airport is located in the suburbs of Cheektowaga and that's pretty much all the town has to offer other than an art gallery and a couple of pumpkin farms. What you will find there though is great Buffalo-style pizza. Stop off at Tony's Pizza & Pasta on Union Road and you'll be in for an authentic Italian treat – Buffalo-style of course.

Elma


Elma is a rural town just under twenty miles east of the center of Buffalo. It's somewhere most folk move to for work in one of the large companies based there. Elma is a place with space and decent-sized houses surrounded by swathes of grass. After you've built up an appetite mowing the lawn drop into Santino's Pizza Shack on Clinton Street for a Dandelion or Bacon Cheeseburger Pizza and the move for work may well have been worth it.

East Aurora


They may not accept big-name stores coming to the village of East Aurora, but they do embrace the pizza culture, so that's a point in their favor. East Aurora is a tiny hamlet of a village and while it may have only one grocery store, it does have a few pizzerias. Drop in at Pizza del Aureo's on Oakwood Avenue for a Red Hot Chicken or Mac'n'Cheese pizza and you'll totally forget you found yourself in the back of beyond.
