The Best Pizzerias in Lincoln, Nebraska

Lincoln is home to dozens of restaurants including those that serve piping hot pizza oozing with mozzarella cheese and other delicious toppings.

If you would like to enjoy a few slices, the best pizzerias near our downtown Lincoln apartments include:


When Kal and Darlene Knudson decided they needed something to bring their family together, daVinci's was born. That was in 1977. Today, the family owns five locations here in Lincoln. The chefs begin their day early as they make the Alfredo and marinara sauces from scratch, and bake the Italian bread. The pizzas feature 100 percent real mozzarella cheese, and gourmet options include supreme, barbecue chicken, and garden pesto. For dessert, try a slice of the delectable cheesecake.


Lazzari's is a favorite lunchtime spot among working professionals and a crave-worthy late-night destination for college students. The cooks bring the authentic flavor of the Big Apple to Lincoln. They make the New York-style pizza using a secret dough recipe and other high-quality ingredients. The restaurant offers fast, friendly service, and features chalkboard menus and comfortable seating. Specialty pizzas include Margherita, Crab Rangoon, and the Southeast Special.


Adrie Groeneweg grew up in Hull, Iowa. When he was nineteen, he wondered why everyone had to drive out of town to get a pizza. With the help of his mom, he created six recipes, and the Pizza Ranch was born. It quickly became popular among locals. Today, Pizza Ranch calls thirteen states home. The restaurant offers a casual setting and was established on the philosophy of putting customers first. Guests can build their own pizzas, or try a specialty choice such as Cuban, Tuscan Roma, and Texan Taco.

In addition to these pizzerias, Academy Lincoln is also near top shopping destinations and fascinating cultural attractions. To call our community home, please contact us. We would love to give you a personalized tour where you can see everything we have to offer.
