Even though West Texas may be known for it’s savory southern cooking, Lubbock is home to some of the best pizza pies in the state! Whether you’re into Chicago-style deep dish or New York-inspired crispy crust, the “Hub City” has something to satisfy your craving for the perfect slice.

Giorgio’s Pizza

The New York-style pizza makes the food at Giorgio’s Pizza so unique, not to mention the pizza of the month and the “Texas size pizza,” the largest pizza in Lubbock, which measures 28 inches. The restaurant uses a brick oven to bake the pizza and calzones after making all of the dough fresh from scratch every day. This has been the daily procedure for Giorgio’s Pizza employees for the last 23 years. The effort and style are definitely noticed, as the classics, pizza and calzones, are hard to beat. Perfect crust all the way through, with delicious cheeses and plenty of savory toppings.

Also, don’t let the long lines scare you away. Giorgio’s Pizza will get your food to you with plenty of time to eat and get back to work. Trust us, it will be well worth it.
