I'm a little pizza-obsessed. The sauce. The cheese. And oh those toppings?! Swoon.
Pizza has never been better here in Bismarck-Mandan, ND. Our local pizza scene has grown and matured to include big city flavors, unique savory toppings, and locally-sourced ingredients for tastes that will have you coming back formore. And more.
Our family frequents 5 favorite crave-worthy pizza restaurants — all five are locally owned and family-friendly! Some of these restaurants are old, some are new, but each has it's own distinct flavor and taste. Try one tonight!
Fireflour Neapolitan Pizzeria & Craft Coffee Bar
111 N 5th St, Downtown Bismarck, ND
Wood-fired neapolitan pizza made from local and small-farm regional ingredients. California flavors and super trendy downtown Bismarck location made this a fun date night. Excellent selection of microbrew beer and delicious homemade gelato too!
Mom tip: Bring the kids and watch your pizza as it's hand-tossed, topped, and put into the wood-fire oven.
1001 W. Interstate Ave, Suite 112, Bismarck, ND
East Coast New Jersey-style pizza that's packed with flavor. Located in the Pinehurst Shopping area, Nardello's pizza is available to order, or grab by-the-slice pizza for an extra quick meal.
910 E Front Ave, Bismarck, ND
Bruno's original topping combinations like philly cheesesteak, deluxe chicken tortellini, and deluxe meatball make a unique and favor-FULL pizza!
Mom tip: Bruno's has plenty of parking and lots of room for families and groups.

Open since 1969, A&B Pizza has been a favorite for many generations and it can be fun to debate favorite A&B flavors with locals. My family has been ordering the house special pizza (pictured above - spice it up with added jalapeños) since I can remember, but many other families will promise you that A&B's Taco pizza is the best. A&B's large pizzas are cut into squares rather than triangular slices — my kids think this is crazy cool.
Mom tip: A&B has large party rooms, and the kids love playing with the vintage pinball machine. Try their local German specialty fleishkekule too!
1136 N 3rd Street, Bismarck, ND
The only non-pizza joint on our list, the Walrus can definitely hold it's own when it comes to amazing pizza. This bustling local eatery has over 40 craft beers on tap and an impressive pizza selection from ordinary to exotic.
Mom tip: Check out the kid's menu for make-your-own pizzas that your kids can make at the table.
