The Ultimate Pizza Bucket List In Nashville That Will Make Your Mouth Water
Pizza deserves its own food group, wouldn’t you say? We consume it in great, rabid bursts as a culture. With that kind of obsession you simply can’t push this decadent meal to the side – lets face it. We need it.
We’ve created – in no particular order – a pizza bucket list for those of you lucky enough to live in Nashville. Have you visited them all…?
1. DeSano Pizza Bakery
DeSano takes the cake when it comes to thin crispy crust and a tremendous pizza sauce. Purveyor of artisanal slices, this small chain makes some of the best pies in the city. We'd recommend coming to stay for awhile, because their array of beers and communal seating make this an experience worth commemorating. (115 16th Ave S)
2. Five Points Pizza
The place of East Nashville lore and legend, Five Points serves up a solid slice by the pie or the slice. There's a lot to be said about such ease, you know. The late night walk-up window and participation in local festivals is a neat touch, too. (1012 Woodland Street)
3. Bella Napoli
This cozy, sweet throwback to the old country has the atmosphere of an upscale restaurant without the sniffy prim and proper attitude. Perfect for first dates and family outings, this is one of our favorite spots to eat in Nashville - pizza or no. (1200 Villa Place #206)
4. Bella Nashville
Located in the Nashville Farmers Market, Bella Nashville is one of the top spots for eating if you're a business exec comin' in for lunchtime. These crispy pies are made to order, so you know yours will be fresh. Their quirky menu is always fun to peruse, so make sure you come with a sense of adventure! (900 Rosa L Parks Blvd)
5. Joey's House of Pizza
This low-key pizza joint has its roots deep in New York, with the owner's family hailing from the Empire state. You'll get a solid Sicilian-style slice that makes all of your cravings sated. It's a gift. (897 Elm Hill Pike)
6. 312 Pizza Company
Although only a couple of years old, this Germantown eatery has made quite the name for itself as a Chicago-loyal sports bar and purveyor of deep dish pizzas - just take a look at that slice up there. Gorgeous. Come if you have a minute to stay - deep dish pizzas take a lot longer to cook - and enjoy a night out with some good friends. (371 Monroe Street)
7. Two Boots Nashville
What, you say?! A chain?! Yes, a chain. Two Boots is a chain because a lot of people LIKE IT and therefore it needs to be more than one place at once. The New York City chain has become a Nashville staple and we'd recommend going if you have family members that are gluten-sensitive, vegetarian or even vegan. Two Boots caters to any and all! (1925 Broadway)
8. NY Pie - Nashville
Tucked away in West Nashville, NY Pie is great if you want a piece of pizza quick that hails from the state lauded for their hefty slices. With all sorts of combos and the simple pepperoni favorite, this is one fast lunch that is sure to keep you sated.
9. Pizza Perfect
This college kid favorite is just as great for a adults who are watching their pocketbook, looking to enjoy a cheesy bit of heaven. Pizza Perfect boasts a wide range of pizzas as well as dessert favorites like cannolis and tiramisu. Perfect whether you're a fan of sweet OR salty! (1602 21st Ave S)
10. Angelo's Picnic Pizza
Located in Antioch, this pizza place is definitely worth the trip. It has technically been serving the area since 1973, with a couple of stops and starts. They have a daily all-you-can-eat buffet, so you know you can't miss this hidden gem. (2713 Murfreesboro Pike)
11. City House
City House may not be exactly known as a pizza slingin' kind of place, but they have sure made a name for themselves amongst pizza lovers. The pie isn't complete their with house made belly ham and an egg on top. Everything is better with an egg on top, right? Right. (1222 4th Ave N)
