5 Uniquely New Orleans Pizzas to Try This Weekend

Pizza lovers, it’s time to seize the weekend. To go out and try all of those pizza places (and pizzas) that you’ve been waiting for some excuse to order. In New Orleans, we’ve got a few places that serve up pizzas that are far different from the usual fare. This weekend, why not break away from the usual and try one of these uniquely New Orleans pizzas?

Reginelli Gumbo Pizza – Reginelli’s

At Reginelli’s, they’re serving up all of the classic flavors of gumbo, but on a pizza. Andouille sausage, local shrimp marinated in Crystal hot sauce, onions, bell peppers, celery, and pickled okra join a smoked tomato sauce on this pie.

Mushroom Pizza – Echo’s

If you’re a mushroom lover, this is definitely the pizza for you. It’s topped with shitake, oyster, and cremini mushrooms, fontina and pecorino cheeses, and thyme.


Roasted Duck – Louisiana Pizza Kitchen

Duck is a favorite dish at many restaurants throughout the city, but it’s a pretty unique pizza topping. On this pizza, you’ll find duck paired with mushrooms, roma tomatoes, grapes, grape demi-glaze, and mozzarella cheese.

Spicy Mike – Homegrown Pizza

If you like it spicy, this might just be the pizza you’ve been looking for. It’s topped with Homegrown Pizza’s house-pickled hot peppers and spicy capicola, plus garlic olive oil, mozzarella cheese, and a touch of honey.

Zesty Crawfish – East of Italy

Heads up, crawfish fans! This is the pizza for you. At East of Italy, they season and fry some crawfish tails and put them on pizza along with their spicy cream sauce, green peppers, jalapenos, tomatoes, and red onions.


Whatever kind of pizza you prefer, today is the day to get out there an enjoy it! And be sure to leave a comment letting us know where your favorite New Orleans pizza spot is.
