The Best of Best is a special honor because it’s voted on by the public and our peers in our community. The program is through the Beaumont Enterprise.

Crown Pizza has won this distinction before in years past, but this year is extra special. 2022 has been a monumental, pivotal year in our business and it’s rewarding to know that everyone’s dedicated, passion, and hard work hasn’t been overlooked.

We’ve introduced some new menu items this year like our creamy, sweet cannoli and our savory, spicy wings. We are inspired and passionate about all our menu items such as these, but just look to our name and you’ll see that our heart is at pizza.

From our creative concoctions to our classic pies, our all-star is our Neapolitan pizza baked in our beloved oven, made by hand, made fresh to order, and made with love.

Our Executive Chef, Alden Pond, worked through some recipes early on this 2022 to ensure consistency and bring out the flavor that our customers love so dearly. His attentiveness to the crust, to the prep, and to our guests’ best experience is a work of love. We’re also proud to say it’s paid off well because not only did Crown earn the title of Best Pizza in Southeast Texas, but we also have the Best Chef honor as well! Congratulations to Alden Pond for being “crowned” as Best Chef in the market.

Additionally, Crown Pizza won the distinction of Best Curbside Service.

This is a direct thank-you to our dedicated staff of cooks, servers, and managers. We pride ourselves on happy, hometown service and sometimes that means running orders out to our guests in cars in the rain, heat, and whatever weather Southeast Texas throws at us. The protocols and hurdles in the restaurant business, in society, in consumer behaviors, and other X factors have absolutely affected restaurants across the globe. We’re no different, but we aim to please and make every guests’ experience Royally special—dining in, carrying out, or through deliveries. We appreciate our staff. We know they’re the best around!
