Star Pizza-Shepherd

The original deep-dish in a thin-crust town

You know you've found a Houston legend when people consider the delivery area in their moving decisions. Star Pizza earns it's stellar rep with its addictive delicious deep dish pies. All pizzas are available with a traditional white crust or the slightly-sweet whole wheat crust.

Signature combos include Joe's Pizza, made with sautéed spinach and fresh garlic; Hank's pizza featuring mushrooms, Italian sausage and olives; and the chicken alfredo with cream sauce, chicken, gorgonzola, mozzarella, mushrooms, onion and fresh basil.  But truth be told, you can’t go wrong with any of the pizza choices and toppings. Both this Montrose location and the one in the Heights have a casual vibe and polite servers. There is a somewhat disappointing but cheap buffet lunch on weekdays, which features salad and thin crust pizzas.

The wait for a deep dish is between 20-30 minutes -- unless it's home delivered, in which case it can take an hour or more.
