Topping the list is Richie's Pizza & Hot Dogs. Located at 844 E. Olive in the Tower District, the combination pizzeria and hot dog spot is the highest rated low-priced pizza joint in Fresno, boasting 4.5 stars out of 146 reviews on Yelp.

The chief selling point of Richie's is its true New York-style thin-crust pizza and generous portion sizes, but Yelpers call out its friendly service for special praise too. To top things off, the joint delivers -- for a small fee.

2. Douggy Fresh Pizza

Its thick-crust pizzas come with generously applied fresh toppings, including some offbeat choices like shrimp. Plus, reviewers praise the garlic cheese bread and the joint's expeditious delivery service.

Last but not least, over in Roosevelt, you can check out Pizza Cycle, a combination bakery and pizzeria which has earned 4.5 stars out of 38 reviews on Yelp.

The family-owned business does artistic custom cakes on the side, but it is primarily a full-service pizzeria -- one that will, if asked, bake your pizza in a cute heart shape. You can snag a slice of either kind by heading over to 3598 E. Butler Ave.
