6 Restaurants Serving Up the Best Pizza in Wilmington, NC

From Thin Crust to Thick, New York Style to Local Favorites, We’re Breaking Down the Best Pizza Places Wilmington, NC Has to Offer

Wilmington is a beautiful City in North Carolina. Filled with all kinds of bars and restaurants, it can be tough to decide on the perfect bar or restaurant for an evening out on the town. Especially when you’re craving pizza. Pizza is so good when it’s good – flavorful sauce, melty cheese, just the right amount of crust – but on the flip side, when pizza isn’t good, it’s pretty terrible.

Luckily for you, you’ve landed on this article. Today we’re going to discuss where to find the best pizza in Wilmington. We’ve compiled a list of some of the best pizza that Wilmington has to offer, and we’ll give you the address and website to all of these locations so that way you can check out the menu or stop by if something catches your eye. 

Unfortunately none of the pizza joints on our list today accept convenient GiftYa digital gift cards… yet.

Agostino’s Pizza & Pasta

Pizza & Pasta with a Distinctly Wilmington Twist

4712 New Centre Dr | Colony Woods | agostinospizzapasta.com

Agostino’s Pizza & Pasta tops our list of best pizza in Wilmington, NC, but pizza is far from the only thing on their menu. Agostino’s offers a wide variety of other Italian fare – like bruschetta and heaping antipasto plates, if you’re looking for an appetizer. Or for dessert, you can treat your sweet tooth to zeppole or decadent cannoli.

But back to the pizza – that’s what we’re really here to talk about, right? Whether you order a whole pizza pie or just a slice, a personal pan or enough for the whole family, Agostino’s has something for everyone. Their signature thin, crispy crust serves as the base for dozens of flavor combinations. Some of their creations call up classic Italian flavors like their eggplant parm pizza or the traditional margherita, but others get more creative. If you’ve ever wondered what a chicken marsala pizza would be like, you don’t have to wonder anymore!

“We have tried different items on the menu from subs, dinners and pizza.  Generous servings and cooked to perfection.  That’s coming from an Italian. Our favorite place for pizza.  slice or whole pizza. Try their cannolis too.” - Yelp Review 

As always we’re busy adding attractions in Wilmington to GiftYa all the time but you can’t get one for Agostino’s Pizza & Pasta just yet. Check back soon. 

I Love NY Pizza

Take a Bite Out of the Big Apple Without Leaving Wilmington

28 N Front St | Historic District | ilovenypizzawilm.com

New York is known for many things: the Statue of Liberty, Broadway, Museum Mile, and of course, New York-style pizza. Thankfully, you don’t have to take a bus or a car or a plane to get a taste of authentic New York pizza because I Love NY Pizza brings those flavors right into the heart of Wilmington’s Historic District.

I Love NY Pizza hits the nail on the head with its thin, crispy crust that any New Yorker would sign off on. Combine that with excellent, friendly service (okay, maybe this part is a little less authentic!) and you’re in for one of the best pizza experiences you can find in the Wilmington area.

“Love this place for a great slice of NY pizza! This location is easy to get to downtown and close to a parking deck if you're picking up takeout. I love the foldability and would say this is the best NY foldable slice in the Wilmington area.

” - Yelp Review

Unfortunately I Love NY Pizza isn’t one of the best pizza in Wilmington participating with GiftYa just yet, but check back soon cause they might be any day now.

Benny’s Big Time Pizzeria

Big Slices to Feed Big Appetites at One of the Best Pizza Places in Wilmington

206 Greenfield St | Wilmington | vivianhoward.com/bennysbigtime

If you’re looking for pizza that packs a huge punch of flavor, then Benny’s Big Time Pizzeria really takes the cake (or… pie?) The thin, crispy crust is topped with just the right amount of sauce and a mouthwatering cheese blend unlike any other pizza in town and high quality toppings that only highlight the freshness and flavor of all the ingredients involved.

Grab yourself a giant slice or a more reasonably sized pizza pie. Plus, Benny’s offers a number of delicious cocktails to round out your dining experience. 

“Holy delicious pizza Batman! I cannot rave about this pizza enough. It has the perfect crust that is thin but has structure and texture with sauce and toppings that sing … On top of the wonderful food, our waitress Susie was so sweet and the best waitress we've had in a while!!

10/10 recommend.” - Yelp Review 

Benny’s Big Time Pizzeria doesn’t offer GiftYa digital gift cards just yet, but check back soon because we are always new restaurants and attractions in Wilmington!

Brooklyn Pizza Co.

Calzone and Pizza and Pasta, Oh My!

6932 Market St | Wilmington | www.facebook.com//Pizza-place/Brooklyn-Pizza-Co

Brooklyn Pizza Co. calls themselves “just a traditional pizzeria and restaurant, pizza, pasta, calzone, stromboli, hot sandwiches, and rolls,” but that doesn’t quite capture the quality that lands them on this list of best pizza in Wilmington. Maybe pizza of this caliber blends in in Brooklyn, but in Wilmington’s very southern and seafood inspired food scene, Brooklyn Pizza Co. is something special.

Pizzas from Brooklyn Pizza Co. are big, tasty, and affordable. As of this writing, a large half cheese, half pepperoni will run you less than $20, which isn’t half bad when you think about the tasty leftovers you’ll have in your fridge for days to come.

“Best pizza I have found in Wilmington.  Can't say much more than that, it's NY style pizza that is Head and shoulders above the competition. I was born and raised in NY and I'm happy I found this place.” - Yelp Review 

Right now you aren’t able to get a GiftYa digital gift card to Brooklyn Pizza Co. but check back because there’s more best pizza and stores in Wilmington added all the time.

4403 Oleander Dr, Ste H | College Oleander Center | Yourpie.com

Wheelz Pizza 

Gourmet Neopolitan-Brooklyn Style Pizza Right Here in Wilmington

7037 Wrightsville Ave | Wilmington | www.wheelzpizzawilmington.com

If thin crust pizza isn’t quite your style, you’ll love what Wheelz Pizza is pulling out of the oven. The chewy, tender crust combined with fresh toppings and delicious flavor combinations makes Wheelz Pizza a local favorite spot to grab a slice. 

Every pizza at Wheelz Pizza – from their New York Style to their Hawaiian to their Italian Sausage to their Buffalo Chicken – is made from high-quality, organic ingredients that don’t add any preservatives or conditioners into the mix. Maybe that still doesn’t make pizza “health food,” but it does mean that you can feel good about every gourmet bite.

“One of, if not the best pizza crusts around! Actually, it is the BEST. Overall excellent chew and flavor. Love the curly, crunchy peperoni and my honey loves the white pie. Best ingredients. We suggest you try this place, sit and eat and then head to the beach or visa versa.” - Yelp Review 

You can’t get a digital GiftYa gift card to Wheelz Pizza - Wrightsville Beach at the moment but be sure to check back soon as new best pizza and locations in Wilmington are added all the time!
