From a culinary standpoint, there are things that Disney does consistently well. 

BBQ springs to mind. In fact, I find Disney barbecue to be consistently good and even interesting across the park. Ice cream, hot dogs and sausages and juice are also done well at Disney.

Disney is also crazy for slaw. My guess is that it’s a crunchy and creamy addition to several types of meals, making it a versatile side. I suspect that somewhere behind EPCOT’s gardens are fields and fields of cabbage to supply Disney’s secret slaw production facilities.

Does Disney World have pizza?

Yes, Disney has a variety of pizza choices.

But pizza is ubiquitous. Good pizza, like beauty, exists in the eye (or stomach) of the beholder. 

For instance, some people want their pizza basic with topics like sausage and pepperoni. If it has fresh mozzarella cheese, they’re really living the high life. 

Other people like their pizza of the artisanal bent. Me? I like it all. Pineapple and ham? Sure. Vegan cheese with gluten-free dough? Yes. 

Meat lovers? Veggie lovers? Meat and veggie lovers? Yes, yes and yes.

But let’s break it down. Where can you get the best pizza in Walt Disney World?

1. Il Mulino New York Trattoria

Swan & Dolphin Hotel, Disney World

Il Mulino offers a superior signature dining experience with fare that includes wood-fired pizzas. The Margherita has tomato sauce, basil and buffalo mozzarella cheese.

2. Via Napoli Ristorante e Pizzeria

Italy Pavilion, EPCOT

Via Napoli serves the good stuff, even if they get carried away with the promotion. Sure, it’s authentic Naples-style pizza in wood-fired ovens, but do they REALLY use water from their own private wells?

Surely there ain’t no wells right there in EPCOT. Are they importing the pizza dough water? 

Specifically, they say it’s identical to the water found in Naples. But I don’t know, man. I don’t think the EPCOT pizza diners are really quite that exacting. 

No matter where the water comes from, however, the pizza is absolutely delicious. 

Get one of the specialties like the Quattro Formaggi pizza. I don’t speak Italian, but that’s four cheeses to you and me.

3. Blaze Fast-Fire’d Pizza

E. Buena Vista Drive, Disney Springs

Blaze Pizza is good pizza fast, which is incredibly convenient as you’re trying to pack in as many experiences as you can when you visit the Springs.

The Fast-Fire’d pizza thin crust chain somehow manages to make tasty, artisanal pizzas in 180-second cook times. And you also can choose from a variety of signature pizzas or create your own

4. Trattoria Al Forno

Italy Pavilion, EPCOT

Trattoria Al Forno isn’t a pizza place. However, it does serve excellent pizza.

The options are not over-the-top artisanal, but they are delicious. Try the Pizze Carni, an Italian three-meat pizza with prosciutto, capicola, sausage and pepperoncinis.

5. Pizza Ponte

E Buena Vista Dr., Disney Springs

There are a lot of good pizza options in Disney Springs. Pizza Ponte – which sells both Sicilian-style squares and massive New York-style foldable slices – is just a good pizza joint.

You can go fancy or you can go classic. Me? I’m fond of the San Gennaro, which has tomato sauce, mozzarella, fontina, sweet Italian sausage, onions and hot cherry peppers.

6. Les Halles Boulangerie-Patisserie

France Pavilion, EPCOT

This eatery does not offer a lot of “traditional” pizza, but it does offer a Pissaladiere, which is very similar to pizza, and comes with tomatoes, olives and Gruyere cheese.

It’s very good, but also quite garlic-forward.

You can also get other pizza-adjacent items like the Croque Monsieur, an open-faced ham sandwich with melted Gruyere cheese.

Look, whenever you bake a variety of bread and dough and have good, melty cheese close at hand, you’re never too far from a pizza.

7. California Grill

Disney’s Contemporary Resort, Lake Buena Vista

The California Grill doesn’t have a lot of pizza offerings. In fact, it has one.

In the first course of your prix fixe menu options, you’ll find the Black Truffle Pizza, which features salt-baked marble potatoes, leek fondue, crispy potato chips, spicy honey and shaved black truffles. It’s not traditional, but it is delicious.

8. Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill

E Buena Vista Dr., Disney Springs

The famed chef’s Disney Springs restaurant offers pizza, pasta and more.

As you might expect from the world-famous chef, there is more to the pizza here than a slice of pepperoni.

Among the options here is the Bianca, which comes with goat cheese, ricotta, potato, olive salsa verde. The Smoked Salmon has dill cream, chives and salmon pearls.

9. Pinocchio Village Haus

Fantasyland, Magic Kingdom

With seating overlooking the ride queue for Small World, this restaurant has a series of flatbread pizzas that are better than they have any right to be.

My wife Leslie is a fan of the Margherita Flatbread – topped with tomato sauce, shredded mozzarella, fresh tomatoes, mozzarella pearls and a drizzle of balsamic glaze.

There’s also a Gourmet Cheese Flatbread – topped with tomato sauce and a blend of mozzarella, provolone and parmesan that is quite tasty. 

There’s also a plant-based cheese pizza that’s quite good according to my son who is allergic to dairy.

10. Pizza Window

EPCOT Resorts Blvd., Disney’s BoardWalk Villas

As you’d expect, you can walk up to the window and they will exchange pizza for money, either by the slice or for the whole pizza.

You come out on the good end of the deal with this one. There are not a lot of options. It’s cheese or pepperoni, but somehow, it’s perfect anyway.

11. PizzeRizzo

Muppets Courtyard, Hollywood Studios

PizzeRizzo is a pizza place mostly for kids. It’s certainly not bad pizza. In fact, it’s pretty good. But it’s also pretty basic. No truffles or salmon pearls here.

12. Pizzafari

Discovery Island, Animal Kingdom

This quick-service restaurant in Disney’s Animal Kingdom serves its purpose. It’s a place for kids.

But in a park with so many excellent and interesting food options, it hurts my heart a little to spend a precious mealtime here. I’m not saying it’s bad. It’s not. It is pizza after all. 

It’s just … basic.

13. Earl of Sandwich

E. Buena Vista Dr., Disney Springs

Speaking of basics, this perfectly fine sandwich shop has a Caprese Sandwich, which features essentially a pizza sub with fresh mozzarella, basil and tomato as well as a kid’s pizza.

But honestly, if you want pizza in Disney Springs, there are a lot better options.

14. Terra Treats

Discovery Island, Animal Kingdom

Terra is another quick-service restaurant in Disney’s Animal Kingdom that is mostly for kids. It’s a good place to grab snacks or a slice of pizza.

They offer the classic pepperoni and cheese slice as well as a Buffalo Chicken Pizza.

What happened to Pizza Planet at Disney World?

The Muppets happened.

Not satisfied with Remy selling fine cuisine in the France Pavilion over in EPCOT, Disney decided it needed another rodent in the culinary game and turned to C-level Muppet Rizzo who was created as a play on Dustin Hoffman’s con man from the dark 70s classic “Midnight Cowboy” famous for the “I’m walkin’ here” ad lib. 

Pizza Planet in Disney’s Hollywood Studios was closed for refurbishment in 2016. When it reopened, the Toy Story theming was gone and Gonzo’s No. 2 sidekick was the new proprietor. 

It is not the best pizza. But is it decent? Sure. I mean certainly, if you calibrate your expectations of food served as a place run by a Muppet, I think you’ll have a good time with it. 

Does every Italian restaurant at Disney serve pizza?

Not necessarily. For instance, Tony’s Town Square Restaurant just off Main Street in the Magic Kingdom does not. Lady and the Tramp liked spaghetti, not pizza.

What is the Walt Disney World pizza experience like? 

The word I’d choose for Disney pizza is inconsistent, but necessarily so. 

Not every pizza place in the Walt Disney World complex has the same mission. Some offer pizza – not as a dining destination – but as something for the kids.

In other places, the pizza is the raison d’etre. It’s the destination, a work of art in its own right. 

For example, I had a friend a few years ago who was excited to take his young daughters to Chicago. One of the main events on the agenda? A slice of authentic deep-dish Chicago-style pizza.

Therefore, reservations were made at one of the best places in town and after a day of museums and shopping or whatever, they went for dinner and ordered a deep-dish pie. 

The girls were famished, and the food smelled wonderful. 

Then the waiter brought it out. There were tears. They wanted pizza. This wasn’t pizza. It seems they were expecting a bit of Little Caeser’s hot and delicious. 

So, the pizza at Disney is designed to cater to a wide range of expectations.
