Which pizzeria in Atlanta serves the best pies? Folks are pretty passionate about their pizza. Some like saucy Chicago style pies while others prefer wafer-thin crusts with authentic Italian toppings. Personally, I’m a thin crust girl, so with that in mind, here is my list of favorites, not in any particular order, from New York style to classic Neapolitan pies:
Ammazza Edgewood hipster favorite; serving pizza with amazingly thin and crispy crust and locally sourced toppings. (Closed until further notice due to cars hitting the building!)
Italian owned, and quite possibly most authentic, Neapolitan style pizza restaurant. Second location now open at Krog Street Market!
Anthony’s Grandma Pie won Creative Loafing’s 2015 pizza smackdown, and with good reason; authentic New Jersey style pizza. Unfortunately, he moved to Duluth. I miss my Grandma.
Double Zero Napoletana
A Castellucci favorite, now located in Emory Village, with funky Italian menu, especially Neapolitan pizzas that come with scissors for cutting slices.
Hearth Pizza Tavern
Warm and cozy neighborhood gem in Sandy Springs; serving organic yet decadent individual pies and great sides.
Atlanta’s first certified authentic Neapolitan pizza; charred thin crust with Italian style toppings.
Our original rock ‘n’ roll pizza joint serving New York style slices; used to be in L5P, now several locations throughout the city.
Little Five Points Pizza
Big New York style slices are served in this funky former Fellini’s location in L5P; surprisingly crispy, thin crust.
Festive, casual atmosphere; Neapolitan style pizza with a thicker, chewier crust. I love their cannolis.
