Fra Paolo da Pistoia OP (1490 – August 3, 1547) was an Italian painter of the Renaissance period, active in Tuscany. He was a pupil of the painter Fra Bernardino Signoracci. He was a Dominican friar who painted in a style similar to Fra Bartolomeo.

He painted religious paintings, and was mentioned by Vasari in his Vite as a disciple of Fra Bartolomeo. One of his works can be found in the church of San Paolo di Pistoia.
