Pizza lovers will not be disappointed when they visit Hilton Head, SC! Our island is home to a number of fantastic pizzerias that serve some of the tastiest pies you’ll ever eat. To help you make the most of your next vacation, we have put together a guide to five restaurants that serve the best pizza in Hilton Head.
1. Giuseppi’s Pizza & Pasta House
Giuseppi’s recently won The Island Packet newspaper’s Reader’s Choice Award for Best Pizza, and it’s not hard to see why! For over 30 years, Giuseppi’s has been delighting locals and visitors alike with its mouthwatering pies, which are inspired by the pizza the owner grew up eating in Pittsburgh. Giuseppi’s prides itself on not cutting any corners; making its own pizza dough each morning, preparing its sauce with fresh California tomatoes, and using high-quality Italian cheeses. Offering a welcoming sports bar-style atmosphere, Giuseppi’s is a great place for a sit-down meal, but delivery, takeout, and take-and-bake pizzas are also available.
2. Fat Baby’s Pizza & Subs
Fat Baby’s Pizza & Subs is another strong contender for the title of “best pizza in Hilton Head.” Modeled after the classic neighborhood pizza joints of the 1970s, Fat Baby’s is famous for its scratch-made pies and kid-friendly vibe. We’re big fans of the signature Fat Baby Pizza, which comes with pepperoni, sausage, meatball, onion, green pepper, black olives, mushrooms, and extra cheese. Fat Baby’s is great for takeout or dining in, but they do not offer delivery. Be sure to pick up one of the restaurant’s signature T-shirts when you visit!
3. Il Carpaccio
If you’re looking for authentic Italian-style pizza in Hilton Head, you can’t beat Il Carpaccio. The co-owner of this restaurant is originally from a town near Venice and Il Carpaccio’s wood-fired oven was imported from Modena, Italy. All of the pies at Il Carpaccio feature a delightfully thin and flavorful crust topped with irresistible sauce, cheese, and toppings. Il Carpaccio does not offer delivery, but take out is available.
4. Dough Boys Pizza
Ordering a pizza from Dough Boys is always a good decision! This popular pizzeria makes a variety of unique pies, including the Chicken Parm Pizza (topped with chicken cutlet, house blend cheese, and sauce), and the Cheeseburger Pizza (featuring homemade patties, bacon, sweet onion, tomato, pickle, house blend cheese, and special sauce). Whether you order delivery, get takeout, or dine in, Dough Boys never disappoints.
5. Local Pie
Local Pie is a pizzeria that lives up to its name, using only local suppliers and locally-sourced ingredients. This excellent restaurant serves delicious Neapolitan-style pizza that is baked to perfection in a wood-fired brick oven. We highly recommend The Cousin pizza, which is topped with duck confit, house bacon, ricotta, mac n’ cheese, mozzarella, and garlic oil. Local Pie is great for dining in, takeout, or delivery.
