Neapolitan Pizza that tastes delicious

Punch Pizza is more of a foodies place for pizza. You order a pizza from what appears to be a hostess desk and they give you a number. You find a table and they deliver the pizza. The pizzas are made in a 900 degree wood burning oven that is in the center of the restaurant. Pizzas are made to... read more

Fresh ingredients, original recipes, delicious pizza! Love the pizza not crazy about the atmosphere. Would appreciate a little nicer seating and décor.

I love this pizza. I love the freshness, I love that the crust is both crunchy and chewy, and I love the toppings. This is the best pizza I have ever had in Minneapolis. Keep in mind when ordering that they are personal pizzas, most people can polish one off no problem. We generally get this to go, the dining... More

Punch serves really great old-fashioned Italian style thin crust pizza. Lots of neat choices for toppings. Service is also old-fashioned friendly, pleasant and most helpful.

I've eaten at Punch EP since they opened 10+ years ago. They continue to provide excellent, consistent, high quality pizza and salads. This is NOT heavy "cardboard-crust-lathered-in-sauce-and-covered-in-cheese" pizza that sits in your stomach for days. The taste is distinct, light, and delicious. It's made with good fresh ingredients by people who clearly know what they're doing. Hint: Always ask for... More

I hope this place never changes. The employees are pleasant and kind and work very hard, and the food is fantastic. It's a small, cozy space that doesn't seem like it will work out when it's super-busy, but it always does :). Their focus on quality ingredients shows through. The only improvement I could suggest is better (and temperature-controlled) wine... More

1st time visitor to Punch, heard all of these great reviews so I met friends for supper. The combination was very tasty but the crust was soggy in the middle and over done around the outside. If you are in a hurry for pizza this is fast food pizza.

We always order the puttanesca with anchovies. Not bad. The in-house hazelnut chocolate spread in paninis, which look like pita breads are amazing, but a bit pricey. But worth the try.

There are several Punch Pizzas in the Twin Cities, this one always seems busy. I have only done takeouts. Once you find it in the maze of roads in Eden Prairie, it is relatively convenient. The staff is friendly, the pizza is tasty although I tend to add a few toppings to the basic pie. This chain was cited by... More

It's just a win every single time. Don't worry about the line, it moves quickly and your wait will be well worth it. I am a fan of the Mimi...I love salad pizza. They also have one of the best Greek salads I have ever tasted....go figure. Go, just go, their crust is perfection on a plate.
