2. Broadway Pizza Bar
When it comes to pizza places, New York has the eat-on-the-run slice down to a fine art. If you're in Kissimmee, Broadway Pizza Bar is the real deal—short of getting a plane to the Big Apple!
Aside from New York-style gourmet pizza, they also offer wraps, salads, wings, pasta, and New York-style cheesecake. Swill your meal down with a glass or two from their excellent wine menu.
And since the weather is always lovely in Florida (right?), take advantage of this restaurant's stunning patio dining.
3. Blaze Fast-Fire'd Pizza
If you're a bit of a pizza snob looking for an artisanal slice, head to Blaze Fast-Fire'd Pizza.
This Disney Springs staple has made a true art out of pizza-making. Diners can choose from well over 40 different topping options, including unique treats like the Art Lover (artichokes, mozzarella, ricotta, garlic, and red sauce) or the White Top (cream sauce, mozzarella, bacon, garlic, oregano, and arugula).
Dine in to watch your exact pizza enter the wood-fired oven raw and come out again piping hot and ready to eat in just three minutes.
4. Flippers Pizzeria Restaurants
This Kissimmee favorite is located in Old Town and offers dine-in and takeaway pizza options.
The talented chefs at Flippers craft their authentic pizzas, calzones, and sandwiches in a handbuilt brick oven. Customers praise the food for being fresh, made-to-order, and great value for money, while the service is friendly and welcoming. Try their pizzas for sure, but also consider branding out to some of the tasty, Italian-inspired salads and sides.
If you're looking for an affordable, tasty, traditional, and family-friendly dining spot, look no further than Flippers.
5. Main Street Pizza
Visitors wanting authentic Italian-American fare while in Kissimmee can expect exactly that when they visit Main Street Pizza.
The owners keep things traditional and straightforward, with a menu featuring a few options for salad, pasta, and sandwiches. The pizzas are build-your-own—you choose the size first, then the toppings (meats and vegetables)—or they have pre-arranged specialty options.
Bear in mind the whopping 36-inch monster pizza is dine-in only! It's great for a family happy to share their slices.
6. Al's Pizzeria
If you're looking for a simple slice of pie and a drink, Brooklyn style, you can't beat Al's Pizzeria. This classic locale is praised by visitors and locals alike for its tasty pizza and drinks combos at unbelievable prices.
While it might be the best place for a pizza date, it's undeniably an excellent spot for foodies on a budget. Or, if you do want a pizza date, grab some takeaway slices and a couple of cups and head down to Kissimmee's picturesque waterfront for a picnic!
7. App's Pizza
This quaint locale crafts pizzas and calzones from dough and sauce made from all-natural ingredients. The owners have been creating incredible food with Italian and Florida-inspired roots since the early 1970s.
Toppings are simple but of the highest quality and the freshest in town. If you're craving fresh ricotta and tangy tomatoes, App's Pizza has you covered.
Be sure to try their appetizers—from popcorn shrimp to fried mushrooms—and famous sub sandwiches while you're there, too.
8. Uno Pizzeria & Grill
Legend has it that Uno Pizzeria is the best pizza shop in Kissimmee for those longing for Chicago deep-dish. They take the best Italian ingredients and combine them with Chicago pie-making techniques. What comes out of the oven is a pizza to remember.
Uno chefs make their dough fresh daily using a recipe specially designed to give their pizza its signature deep-dish crust (though they also do Chicago thin-crust, too). Toppings include things like pepperoni, plum tomatoes, banana peppers—and, of course, all the cheeses!
Gluten-free diners are well taken care of with food and even beer options. There are also top-class burgers, pasta, soups, salads, and more for those not feeling the pizza.
9. Pienezza Pizza
Pienezza Pizza has a sign on the wall of its restaurant that says, "The best pizza is the one we share." And we couldn't agree more!
With its birthplace in the Italian community in New York, the act of coming together as a family to share food is at the heart of this restaurant. And their pies reflect this heritage, with names like Hey Brooklyn, NY White Pie, and Mama's Lasagne
If anyone in your party isn't into pizza, there are plenty of other options, from signature Big Fat Sandwiches and house pasta to tasty salads.
