We at Pizza Lucé have been proudly serving up some of the best pizza, hoagies, salads, vegan and gluten-free items in Minnesota since 1993. Way back then we began as a small pizzeria in the Minneapolis warehouse district and have won many awards and accolades over the years for our award-winning pizza and guest service. We serve up awesome food made from fresh ingredients, original recipes, and happy team members and we are strongly dedicated to the diversity of our vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free menu items.

At Pizza Lucé we are just as proud of where we work and are committed to a quality work environment and supporting our community and local arts and music. The strengths and diversity of our team members are core ingredients that make up the excellence in our menu items and our guest service.

These days we've grown from one small pizzeria to nine full-service pizza restaurants with dine-in, delivery, and pickup in the Twin Cities and Duluth. We remain just as dedicated to the quality of our menu and our workplace and see both as keys to our success. We're always looking for new people to join our team!
