It truly is a difficult thing to whittle down a list of the best pizza places in Atlanta, especially when there are so many out there that are mouthwateringly delicious. *Sigh*, it’s a tough job but someone’s got to do it, right? It’s a known fact that pretty much everyone loves pizza. The gooey, melted cheese, the sweet, yet tangy sauce, a crust baked to perfection each and every time. What’s not to love? For those of you who didn’t know, Atlanta has some insane pizza spots just begging to be tested and tried. Here is a list of our favorites.
1. Varasano’s Pizzeria—2171 Peachtree Rd NE Atlanta, GA 30309
Varasano's Pizzeria sure is out of this world. Not only is their crust a perfect combination of crispy AND soft, they also feature unique pies like the famous Mozzarella di Bufala, or Nana's.
2. Antico Pizza—1099 Hemphill Ave NW Atlanta, GA 30318
It's hard not to love Antico's Pizza. The tangy, sweet sauce and the chewy, doughy, yet charred on the outside crust make this a must-try in Atlanta. Besides, when the owner brings over his own ovens from Naples, Italy, you know that place means business.
3. Pizza Bella—1799 Briarcliff Rd NE Atlanta, GA 30306
This no-frills pizza joint is a great place to pick up a pie after a long day at work. They take their pies seriously at Pizza Bella, and truthfully any pizza place that can make a gluten free pizza look as incredible as the one above is A-Okay in our book.
4. Fellini's Pizza—1991 Howell Mill Road Northwest Atlanta, GA 30318
Everybody raves about the Fellini's Pizza. The slices of pizza are huge and cheesy, and covered in fresh toppings. It's delicious, casual, and always from scratch. You MUST try the Fellini's Special for an out-of-this-world experience.
5. Ammazza—591 Edgewood Ave Atlanta, GA 30312
People don't just gush about the pizza here at Ammazza, it's also the casual atmosphere and artistic vibe that garners attention, too. Try the Margherita pizza with truffle oil and mushrooms for a flavor explosion on your tongue.
6. Savage Pizza—484 Moreland Ave NE Atlanta, GA 30307
Savage Pizza is definitely a rare breed of pizza places. They are famous for their spicy red pepper sauce, which adds a bit of a kick to every bite. They also feature some really interesting specialty pies like the Buttafuoco shown above!
7. Cameli's Pizza—337 Moreland Ave NE Atlanta, GA 30307
Two words for you: Monster Slice. That's right, Cameli's Pizza serves up some of the tastiest pizza in the city, not to mention some of the biggest. Snag yourself a Monster Slice of your choosing and you'll be in taste-bud heaven.
8. Fritti—309 N Highland Ave NE Atlanta, GA 30307
What most people love above Fritti is that they have consistently amazing pizza each and every day. Mix that in with a relaxed, casual atmosphere, and a chocolate soup for dessert and you have yourself the perfect Sunday afternoon.
9. Ribalta—1080 Peachtree St NE Ste 9 Atlanta, GA 30309
Ribalta is a great place when you're looking for a few things: intensely flavorful pizza, soft yet crisp crust, and Wine Wednesdays for ladies. But really, the pizza is outstanding. Try the Parm Pizza for a new spin on tradition.
10. Jack's Pizza & Wings—676 Highland Ave NE Atlanta, GA 30312
Here's what we love about Jack's: the pizza is pretty dang weird, yet awfully delicious. When we say weird, we mean pies like the Soul Food pizza which combines fried chicken, collard greens, mashed potatoes and gravy. But you know what? It's phenomenal.
