Wood-fired, deep dish, or a place that’s open late when you just HAVE to have a slice at 1am–we’ve got a list of all the best pizza spots around town no matter what type of pie you’re in the mood for.
For A New York Style Slice: Glide Pizza
Newcomer Glide Pizza is serving up NY style pies with a light, crispy sourdough crust that’s fermented for 48 hours and topped with house-made mozzarella and sauces. The walk-up window makes it easy for you to hop off the Beltline and grab a slice to take home. Now open on Irwin Street in Old Fourth Ward!
For Comfy Neighborhood Vibes: Crispina and Firepit Pizza Tavern
We wish more restaurants in Atlanta were like Crispina: homey, unfancy vibes with great service and fantastic flavors at reasonable prices. Their wood-fired pizzas come out piping hot, and the chef is from Naples so you know you’re getting the real thing. They’ve also got some great pastas and their cannolis and panna cotta are out of this world, making this neighborhood joint a place you want to visit again and again. Locations in Vinings and in Kennesaw.
Another awesome intown pizza spot with those cozy neighborhood vibes is Firepit Pizza Tavern, in Grant Park. Their spicy honey pizza, with spicy capicola, caramelized onion, and honey ricotta is a real crowdpleaser, and their unicorn wings were listed as the “Best Meal of 2019” by an Atlanta Eats staff member. Their owner Leslie Cohen won Food Network’s “Cutthroat Kitchen” and was a protege of Richard Blais, so she knows her stuff!
For a Chicago Style Deep Dish Pizza: Nancy’s Pizza
It doesn’t get much closer to the real thing than Nancy’s Pizza, a Chicago-based chain and the gold standard for deep dish pizza in Atlanta. Perfectly layered with the prime cheese to sauce to topping ratio, the deep dish pizza is the perfect cheat meal that’ll put you right into a food coma. Locations in Campcreek, Midtown, Buckhead, Dunwoody, Roswell, and John’s Creek. If you’re not a fan of Nancy’s, check out our deep dish blog post for more Chicago style spots.
For A Chic Beltline Experience and Detroit Style Thick Crusts: Nina & Rafi
What did we do before Nina & Rafi? This O4W spot is the best of the Beltline. The indoors meet the outdoors for a great, fresh weather dining experience and as for food, it doesn’t get much better than their thick Detroit style pies. Get the cheesy bread and meatball appetizer, too, for the perfect start to your meal.
For A Total Crowd Pleaser: Antico’s
This could be the most decorated pizza on the planet! But when you take pizza as seriously as owner Giovanni Di Palma does, you’re bound to win a few awards. Di Palma didn’t sacrifice one detail of his family’s age-old Pizza Napoletana recipe when he brought it here to Atlanta: Fior di Latta and Mozzarella di Bufala cheeses are flown in fresh from Naples each week; San Marzano and Pomodorini tomatoes are hand-picked in Campania; three 10,000 lb. ovens were custom built from ancient Santa Maria brick and volcanic rock from Mt. Vesuvius…and get so hot that a pizza cooks to perfection in only about 60 seconds.
For The 11pm Munchies: Fellini’s and Argosy
Sometimes you get the late night munchies for pizza specifically and the All-star special Waffle House just won’t cut it. And in those times, Fellini’s and their white cheese pizza (our fave) is there for you. Or, if you’re out in EAV, Argosy has a kitchen open late and wood-fired oven that cooks up some great pies. Argosy’s Escobar pizza, with vegan chorizo and vegan Impossible burger, is particularly delicious.
For Neapolitan Pies and Rooftop Vibes: Grana
Newcomer Grana is killing it on all fronts, and their wood-fired Neapolitan pies taste especially fantastic on their rooftop (first come, first serve). Their veal meatballs are full of flavor, and their potato pizza is such an interesting and unique take. One bite and you’ll see why this has become the new weekly spot for folks in Morningside/Lenox Park!
For an OTP Pie: Karvela’s Pizza
It’s definitely a bit out of the way for ITPers, but Southside Atlantans can rejoice because the Karvelas family is serving up GREAT pizzas and wings in Hogansville, LaGrange, and Newnan. They’ve got one of the *best* buffalo chicken pizzas we’ve ever had, and we love the casual vibes that promise a great time every time.
