Are there any real pizza places in Lake Charles and Lafayette? Looking for real authentic pizza. Not Tony's pizza or anything of that nature.

What do you mean by "real" pizza places? If you mean authentic then Tony's Pizza is the best, it is an authentic pizza place run by Italians. Not sure why you excluded that.

If you mean a fancy sit down restaurant then try Grotto's. 121 Artisan Bistro is also superb.

Deano's is the best pizza in Lafayette or Pizza Artista if you want upscale.

Pizza Artista is my favorite! But they make a lot of cajun inspired pizzas, which imo are way better than traditional types!

Tony's Pizza is not authentic even through it is run by Italians. It may be more authentic than other places around here, but it is definitely not authentic.

Tell me what you want and I'll recommend a place. Are you looking for thin crust, NY style, Chicago style, or just a white tablecloth place?

Lol, it's not necessarily the style of pizza. It's the authentic ingredients that Lake Charles lacks. I just like pizzas that taste like the pizzas in Italy. Houston and Galveston have some, due to Galveston's history of Italians. Dolce Vita in Houston, for example is what I'm talking about.

Try Pizza Artista in Lafayette. It rivals anything in Galveston.

I highly highly doubt that, I'd have to try it and let you know. But if it's anything like the Lake Charles location, then it's definitely not like a real pizza in Galveston. But just in case, I'll visit it next time I'm in Lafayette and let you know. I think I'm actually supposed to go in a few days

From when the Lake Charles location, the dough actually was more Italian style and authentic, but the sauce (which is extremely important) as well as the cheese weren't like the ones in Galveston and Italy.
