Otto Pizza | Portland, ME

Otto Pizza_Pepperoni Pizza

Otto Pizza sticks to what they do best…pizza.  So, don’t go there hoping to get anything else except for a possible starter salad or dessert for after your pizza.  They do have beer and wine to accompany your pizza though.  Otto Pizza has a few locations in Portland, Maine, as well some in Massachusetts, and I liked the [...]

Camden House of Pizza | Camden, ME

Camden House of Pizza_Small Half Pepperoni and Half Cheese

Camden is a neat seaside town in Maine, and it’s small enough that I believe I can list all of the pizza options in its downtown/harbor-area: Camden House of Pizza – the only place that specializes in pizza Cuzzy’s – a restaurant/bar that serves brick oven pizza all day Smokestack Grill – a restaurant/sports bar [...]

Have you ever had a grilled pizza?  Nestled in Providence, Rhode Island is the famous grilled pizza place, Bob & Timmy’s.  Grilling a pizza is definitely a unique way of preparing it.  They start by soaking the dough in olive oil and then begin grilling it before adding any toppings.  Your tastes buds can immediately tell that it [...]

Modern Apizza | New Haven, CT

Modern Apizza_Sausage and Garlic

Contrary to  its name, Modern Apizza has been serving New Haven-style pizza, or “apizza,” since 1934.  I believe only Frank Pepe’s has been serving pies in New Haven, Connecticut longer, and there seems to be great debate over which establishment is the best.  Only having time for one, I settled upon Modern Apizza which is [...]

Mystic Pizza | Mystic, CT

Mystic Pizza in Mystic, CT_Outside

Mystic Pizza was started by the Zelepos family and was actually quite popular for fifteen years before screenwriter Amy Jones decided to feature it – and the town of Mystic – in her movie about three young waitresses.

New York Pizza Garden_Cheese Pizza

New York Pizza Garden recently opened in a small strip mall just off of IN-37 and 126th Street in Fishers.  Oddly enough, it is in the same strip mall that houses Big Apple Bagels.  New York Pizza Garden has a small eat-in area, and they offer pizza-by-the-slice for those who want to grab a quick bite.  I would [...]

South of Chicago_Deep Dish Sausage Pizza

South of Chicago Pizza & Italian beef is rapidly trying to spread their Chicago-style pizza across the Indianapolis area.  They first opened in the Fletcher Place neighborhood of Indianapolis about three years ago, then they opened another location in Fishers’ Saxony at the beginning of 2014, and they now have plans to add a third restaurant in [...]

ZwanzigZ Pizza | Columbus, IN

ZwanzigZ Pizza_Five Meat Pizza Slice

ZwanzigZ Pizza is in a town more known for its Cummins engines and architecture than food, and I will say that even the building ZwanzigZ occupies is pretty cool-looking.  There is more to be impressed by than just their storefront though; ZwanzigZ brews their own beer and soda and are consistently rated as Columbus’ best pizza.  Their restaurant is very family-friendly, and [...]

V’s Pizza & Pasta | Noblesville, IN

V's Pizza & Pasta_Grandma Pizza

I had been hearing good things about V’s Pizza & Pasta since they opened in Noblesville in January of 2014, so I was excited to check them out for myself.  They were very friendly and informative when I called in my order, but my enthusiasm dwindled slightly when I pulled into their parking lot and saw [...]
