Benitos Brick Oven Pizza & Pasta

Benitos 1598 Hwy. 17 South, North Myrtle Beach, SC 29582

Benitos Brick Oven Pizza and Pasta in North Myrtle Beach is worth the trip whether you're staying closer to Myrtle Beach or right in the heart of North Myrtle Beach. They carefully cook your pizza to perfection in the brick ovens which you can see from your table. They have tons of specialty pies ranging from a Chicken Parmigiana pizza to the Hawaiian Cowboy topped with BBQ sauace, pineapple, bacon and steak. One of my favorite things to order is the Fra Diavolo with pizza sauce, hot peppers, shrimp and mozzarella. Create your own pie or order a plain cheese- you won't be disappointed.

Ultimate California Pizza

California Pizza Multiple Locations - 4860 U.S. 17, North Myrtle Beach, SC 29582

Ultimate California Pizza has six different locations on the Grand Strand including their popular Game Zone in northern Myrtle Beach. The surf-themed dining rooms provide a relaxed setting for chowing down on some pizza. We recommend designing your own slice of heaven down to the the type of crust you like. Move on to ten types of sauce options including pesto, salsa and sweet Thai chile. Then there's the cheese. They have 12 types of cheese! Toppings include a huge selection of vegetables, meats, seafood, fresh fruit, nuts and herbs and spices.

Gino’s: Real New York Pizza

Gino's 3521 Belle Terre Blvd., Myrtle Beach , SC 29582

There's such a high demand for Gino's Real New York Pizza that they recently opened another location in Carolina Forest, less than three miles down the road from another one of their stores. They serve up just good old thin crust pies that please even the snobbiest of pizza connoisseurs. They serve up typical pizzas but keep in mind when ordering that their small is a 16 inch pie!

Tavern in the Forest

Tavern in the Forest 4999 Carolina Forest Blvd, Myrtle Beach, SC 29579

Nestled on the back side of Carolina Forest you'll find Tavern in the Forest. Don't let the bar look fool you - this place serves up some seriously good pizza! They use fresh veggies and toppings, tons of cheese and just the right amount of sauce on top of a perfectly cooked crust that's thin with just enough crunch. My favorite is the veggie special but the sausage is a great addition too. If you love tons of toppings you can't go wrong with the house special.


Anthony's Pizza and Pan Pasta 2298 Glenns Bay Rd, Myrtle Beach, SC 29575

Each hearth-baked pizza at Anthony's is made with fresh dough and homemade sauce. Choose your standard toppings or opt for something more exciting like feta cheese, cherry peppers, eggplant or artichokes. They also have an assortment of premium toppings to try with everything from ribeye steak to clams. Whether you're an adventurous pizza creator or if you just like it plain, Anthony's in Surfside has your stomach covered.

Kings Famous Pizza

King's Famous Pizza 3511 Highway 17 South, North Myrtle Beach, SC 29582

Family-run King's Famous Pizza has been a staple on the Grand Strand for more than 30 years. Their easy-to-find North Myrtle Beach location offers pizzas with a flaky crust with fresh toppings. The red plastic booths and nostalgic games inside take diners back to a simpler time with good food in a fun atmosphere. Pro tip: grab a jar of their homemade salad dressing to take home with you.

Mellow Mushroom Pizza

Mellow Mushroom 1571 21st Avenue North, Myrtle Beach, SC 29577

Mellow Mushroom fans can now find two different locations along the Grand Strand - one in Myrtle Beach and a brand new location in North Myrtle Beach. The groovy vibe provides a great setting for a unique pizza experience. They start with a doughy crust and make way for anything but normal toppings. The Philosopher's Pie starts with an olive oil and garlic base and is topped with grilled steak, portobello mushrooms, artichoke hearts, Kalamata olives, provolone, feta and mozzarella cheese. Gluten-free eaters have plenty of options here too!

Michael’s Pizza, Pasta, and Grill

Michael's PIzza 1701 Kings Hwy, Myrtle Beach, SC 29577

The NYC decor is a direct reflection of the type of pizza served at Michael's in Myrtle Beach. Their ooey-gooey thin crust pies may convince a few people that they're actually in the Big Apple. For a different twist try the stuffed veggie or meat with the crust on top. They also offer Sicilian-style pizzas. The location is convenient to tons of hotels in the heart of the Grand Strand and they deliver. If you love cannolis you definitely want to save room for dessert!


Scatori's Pizzeria & Italian Restaurant

Scatori's Pizzeria was named Best of the Beach in the pizza category in 2011 and 2012. Their giant slices are available for dining in or take-out. Each pizza is hand tossed and baked to perfection in their giant oven. They offer basic pizzas and specialty pies. The double bacon cheeseburger pie comes with ground beef, bacon, onion, tomato, cheddar and mozzarella. Pasta lovers can enjoy the best of both worlds with the baked ziti pie. Hungry yet?

Capriccio’s Restaurant & Pizzeria

Capriccio Restaurant and Pizzeria 1285 38th Ave N, Myrtle Beach, SC 29577

Rounding out the top ten places for pizza in Myrtle Beach is Capriccio Restaurant and Pizzeria. The restaurant might not look like much from the outside but one step inside and you'll have to stop yourself from drooling. I'm a sucker for the Capriccio Special which comes with sundried tomatoes, spinach, grilled chicken and garlic. I've seen others opt for the equally tasty Sicilian and the meat lovers which comes with a little bit of everything.
