Exterior of Humble Pie Pizzeria in Edmond Oklahoma

In a small, yellow-and-green-colored strip mall next to a pawn shop in Edmond stands a humble, family-run pizza place creating buttery-crusted pizzas and addicting seasoned pretzels. Humble Pie offers authentic Chicago deep-dish pizzas and thin New York style pizzas with quality results no matter which you choose.

After you’ve decided on your pie, place your order along with an appetizer of the bottomless pretzels ($5.99) because this homemade pizza takes some time to prepare. Plus, the bottomless pretzels are a very nice flavor indulgence. They are seasoned using a secret recipe that’s a great combination of salty and spicy, pairing well with the ranch dipping sauce. Our table usually eats a bowl or two of these before the pizza arrives. We also often get a refill to take home.

Chicago deep-dish or New York thin? That is the question at Humble Pie. EatAroundOKC founder, Tim, is fond of saying that Humble Pie offers Oklahoma City’s absolute best true Chicago-style pizza (see a pic), making this an easy choice for him. But Chicago-style is quite unique, with a thick, buttery crust and layers of toppings followed by the sauce on top. It’s a very, very thick and heavy pizza so it’s nice to have other options if the Chicago style is not your thing.

Both styles of dough are homemade daily. Humble Pie also makes their homemade sauce daily and it’s a well-balanced combination of fresh tomatoes and seasoning. I have tried most menu combinations and have enjoyed them all in deep-dish form, but when ordering Chicago-style, my favorites are the meat lovers or supreme ($22). The fuller, richer flavors of the heavy meats stand up perfectly with the thick, deep-dish, buttery-crust. If you love the buttery Chicago crust, but aren’t a deep-dish lover, you can also order it in a thin personal size.

If you’re not up for the heavy Chicago-style, Humble Pie’s thin crust style is another very good choice. They use the same homemade sauce on their thin pizzas, but it is found under all the toppings and cheeses the way you’ve most likely come to expect on a pizza. With the thin-style crust, I prefer trying some of Humble Pie’s more unusual menu options including the spinach-artichoke ($18) or Greek Goddess ($23 – see a pic). The spinach-artichoke is a good balance of artichoke hearts, fresh spinach and cheese that just compliments the thin yet flavorful crust. The Greek Goddess is packed with flavor from the sun-dried tomato, feta, fresh garlic, chicken and olives. It is a salty and savory combination that works.

If you’re fretting that this is all way too many carbs, do not worry. Humble Pie has a good selection of salads (see a pic of the Spinach Salad or Caesar) which feature fresh, quality greens and more and come in half or full sizes. The full size is plenty to share and makes for a good starter when paired with the seasoned pretzels.

When I originally wrote this review, I was excited to tell you about Humble Pie’s great lunch special, but they have recently announced they are no longer open at lunch on weekdays. According to their Facebook announcement, this is planned to be a temporary change, so there is hope they will bring back the weekday lunch. When they do, I hope they’ll also revive their personal sized deep-dish (deep six – see a pic) pizza priced from $4.95 with 1 topping up to $7.44 with 6+ toppings, and the chance to add a drink for only .93 cents. I found this to be a great lunch value and look forward to its return.

Humble Pie is a small restaurant with simple décor. Whether in a booth or at a table, you can watch pizzas being made through the kitchen window, check out the wall of decorated pizza boxes and consider adding your dollar to the collection hanging from the ceiling (money contributed is sent to Oklahomans Against Trafficking of Humans (O.A.T.H.), a cause Humble Pie actively supports). All this while you relax, indulge in amazing pretzels and wait patiently for your pizza.

    This place is amazing! I’d recently come back from traveling in Chicago where I had the best pizza ever. Then a few days later, I tried Humble Pie. Rivaled the pizza in Chicago!

    The best pizza I have ever had! Period! Every time we have company in from our of town we take them here! I just wish they had more locations. We are still willing to drive during rush hour for it, though.

    This is the best pizza in the metro area. It’s hard to find, due to their small sign and being nestled between and pawn and smoke shop, but worth the search.

Please tell us what you think.
