    Tribecca Allie in Sardis, MS is producing the best pizza in the state. Cooked in a wood fired oven built by the owners Becca and Dutch. Their pizza is in the style of the great Chris Bianco of AZ. Using locally sourced great ingredients and cooking them in the style of the great pizzerias in Italy. That means properly matured dough, cooked at very high temperature producing a charred crust which is light and fluffy inside. The pizza is delicious, the toppings are great. The Rosa Magnolia is Mississippi pecans on a 3 cheese base with red onions, it is amazing!!!
    The margherita pizza is the best traditional pizza in the entire state. Fresh mozzarella cheese, ripe tomatoes crushed, fresh basil, a drizzle of EVOO and a sprinkle of sea salt, this is the way pizza is supposed to be!!!

    My favorite pizza is in Sardis, about 20 minutes outside of Oxford. They do a great thin crust pizza in their own brick oven. There dough, toppings, and sauce is all super fresh and delicious! The best pizza in the area by far.

      Hi Amy,
      Are you referring to Tribecca Allie? I just posted about them a couple of days ago.

    There is some good pizza in Oxford. Proud Larry’s is ok. Newk’s is better though, but it is a chain. I have to agree with some of the other posters that there is NO excellent pizza in Oxford. Oxford needs a pizza place with a wood pizza oven! Mmmm…

    The best is what I cook from scratch at home. I did like L’Amore before they closed. My kids think Little Caesars is OK, but I think it tastes like paste. I’m going to write an article soon (in the next month) about a great pizza place outside of Oxford, so stay tuned

    Where can I get a pie in Oxford just like the Brooklyn pizza pictured at the top of this blog entry?
    It has ALL the qualities I’m looking for!
    C’est Manifique!!!

      I was at motorino in brooklyn last week, the pizzas look just the picture up above. They are so good we ate 2 after just eating a large pie at John’s of Bleeker St. another NY legendary pizza place. People must like the charred crust and somewhat soft almost soupy center of the pie, this is true Naples Italy style pizza. The best ingredients available cooked quickly with a charred crust with black spots on the edges and on the bottom. Spots not completely black on bottom which means the pizza maker left in on the deck too long. The pie is cooked on the bottom and then lifted on the peel into the edge of the flames to “dome” the pie to finish. It gives intense flavor and removes any water that may have come from the toppings!!! That is REAL pizza.

    Well, it WAS Bad Boyz until they had to move. Hopefully they will be able to re-open soon in another location. Until then I’d have to say my favorite is Funky’s. I like their crust and their sauce the best of all the current offerings.

    I apologize for being disparaging, but alas, there is NO good pie in Oxford.
    When I would slumber, pizza fairies used to dance in my head, but now I don’t eat the stuff anymore locally.
    All the pizza in Oxford is as floppy as a a flaccid flapjack and wooooefully undercooked.  Why do our pizza chefs think that pizza should come out bleach-white?  And they compensate by piling on sh*t*y meat products. It’s like eating a Polish pancake boiled in hot water and obliterated with cat food. What has happened to the charcoal crust exploding with crusted bubbles like hot magma, sparingly covered with thin slices of pepperoni curling like potato chips from the heat of a good pizza oven?  It’s even hard to get round pepperoni slices here, they get minced-up into little wedges like Pup-Peroni dog snacks.
    Therefore, since there is NO good pizza in Oxford, I just go eat NEWK’S PIZZA.  At least it doesn’t pretend to be pizza no more than Wolfgang Puck’s pizza pretends to be pizza. But it sure tastes good!
