Destin, Florida, is known for many things, from its picturesque white sand beaches to its reputation as the “World’s Luckiest Fishing Village.” With our location near the Gulf of Mexico, it’s no surprise that most vacationers decide to eat at one of our many beachfront restaurants serving fresh seafood. However, for those who don’t like seafood or are traveling with some picky eaters, we recommend ordering a pizza in Destin, FL. Even though we are known for our seafood, we have several local restaurants that regularly dish out delicious pizzas. Whether you are looking for authentic Italian pizza or the best carryout to enjoy in your Overmoon vacation rental, there is a slice for everyone!

1. Merlins Pizza

Merlins Pizza offers 100% local dishes, using locally grown produce and ingredients to deliver some of the freshest pizza in Destin, FL! Start your meal with their world-famous cheese bread made with garlic butter and Italian parmesan. Build your own pizza or choose one of their unique house specialties. Enjoy the best of both worlds with their deluxe seafood pizza topped with creamy alfredo, shrimp, crab, mozzarella, and Italian herbs. 

2. Landsharks Pizza Company

If you want a place to watch a sports game while enjoying tasty pizza, Landsharks is for you! Every pizza is made in a brick oven with generous and delicious toppings. There are dozens of options to create your own pizza and specialty pizzas like el diablo for fans of everything spicy!

3. Pazzo Italiano Destin

Enjoy the flavors of authentic Italian pizza in an upscale setting at Pazzo Italiano. This Destin eatery has been a local favorite for over 20 years, with a tasty selection of artisanal wood-fired pizza. You can expect unique topping choices like basil, soppressata, salami, porchetta, and truffle oil. With so many pizzas to choose from, you might have to order Pazzo Italiano, where you can try samples of four different pizzas!
