Attention all pizza lovers! Now streaming on Hulu is a saucy new pizza competition show called “Best in Dough.” The series brings together pizza obsessed competitors from all walks of life to showcase their pizza slinging skills and battle it out for a cash prize. Pizza geniuses of varying occupations, from students to social media stars, will be put to the test with challenges that will have you saying, “Mamma Mia!” And if that’s not enough for you, Wells Adams (“Bachelor in Paradise”) is the host.

With so many palatable pizza places across the Disney Parks, we consulted judges Chef Millie Peartree, baker Bryan Ford, comedian and food influencer Eunji Kim, and even head judge Chef Daniele Uditi of Pizzana to help us determine the not-at-all-definitive Top 5 Pizza Places at Disney Parks.

Pizza from Via Napoli Ristorante e Pizzeria

1. Via Napoli Ristorante e Pizzeria (EPCOT)

It comes as no surprise that the traditional Neapolitan pizza of Via Napoli Ristorante e Pizzeria is on this list. Nestled into the Italy Pavilion at EPCOT, a trip to Via Napoli Ristorante e Pizzeria will transport you across the boot, with Venetian architecture from the North to Sicilian artwork from the South. This pizza is crafted with San Marzano tomatoes and real Caputo flour imported straight from Southern Italy earning the stamp of approval from authentic Italians.

2. Mama Melrose’s Ristorante Italiano (Disney’s Hollywood Studios)

Mama Melrose’s Ristorante Italiano at Disney’s Hollywood Studios is dubbed “where Italy meets California in the heart of the Backlot,” and for good reason. The flavors that come out of the kitchen are as warm and inviting as the restaurant itself with its string lights and checkered curtains. The Margherita Flatbread is the perfect antipasto with its melt-in-your-mouth mozzarella, house-made marinara sauce, fresh basil, and, of course, drizzled with extra virgin olive oil.

3. Pizzafari (Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park)

4. Alien Pizza Planet (Disneyland Park)

Does pineapple belong on pizza? That’s a question that goes back lightyears. All we know is that the Hawaiian-style Pizza at Alien Pizza Planet in Disneyland has us saying “Ooohh!” 

5. Boardwalk Pizza & Pasta (Disney California Adventure park)

There’s nothing better than grabbing a quick slice and then getting on the next attraction. Lucky for us, Boardwalk Pizza & Pasta comes in handy when exploring all there is to do at Disney’s California Adventure park. With many slices to choose from, this quick-service location is a perfect pit stop.

So, after you’ve gotten yourself a slice or two, or five, from the best spots at Disney Parks, be sure to check out “Best in Dough” now streaming on Hulu!

Comments

  • For the commentor above asking about PizzeRizzo – I believe they have the same pizzas there as Pizzafari.

    It would be nice if Disney had those pizzas at more places. Specifically the cruise ships. Those pizzas are awful!

  • They should have just stopped with #1.

  • What? No PizzeRizzo?? 😤

  • I applaud their choice of Via Napoli as the best. I must draw attention to the very close, but second best pie on property from Pizza Ponte at Disney Springs. While not in the park, it holds firm at second place and every bit as authentic. Good article all around!

  • I like most of the food at the parks in all 6 domestic parks but the pizza at Alien Pizza Planet is not just the worst in the Disney food empire, but in the world! Seriously! And add insult to injury, this terrible over-priced restaurant replaced an attraction. Where is the value in that?
