Aurelio’s Pizza | Fishers, IN

10" #12 (Sausage and Pepperoni)

Aurelio’s Pizza has an impressive history, and I’m very excited that they have finally made their way to central Indiana by opening a store in Fishers in 2016.  Aurelio’s was started by Joe Aurelio in Homewood, Illinois in 1959, and it remains run by the Aurelio family to this day.  It was actually the first Chicago pizzeria […]

Pie Five | Indianapolis, IN

Sausage and Bacon Pizza on Pan Crust

Pie Five strives to serve customized personal pizzas featuring fresh ingredients as quickly as possible.  Even their fountain drink machine fits the customization theme as it is one of the Coke machines that allows you to come up with almost any soda concoction.  Pie Five’s recent entry into downtown Indianapolis is a restaurant that occupies an old bakery building, complete with […]

Blaze Pizza | Carmel, IN

Blaze Pizza_Sausage and Pepperoni Pizza

Blaze Pizza offers a new and unique take on the pizza-ordering experience, and I think their fast, highly personalized approach will only continue to gain in popularity.  While they have some signature pizzas, Blaze is most known for their “build your own” option that allows patrons to follow their pizzas through the preparation process and add […]

Rockstone Pizzeria & Pub in Fishers, IN_Regular Crust Meatzorilla Pizza

Rockstone Pizzeria & Pub is a newer restaurant at 116th and Allisonville in Fishers, Indiana that has the potential to really catch on.  The pub part of Rockstone Pizzeria & Pub features a great local beer list and the pizzeria part offers both wood-fired and traditional crust pizzas.  Beyond that, they also serve starters, salads, […]

Pizza by the Harbour | Noblesville, IN

Pizza by the Harbour in Noblesville, IN_Pepperoni and Extra Cheese Pizza

Pizza by the Harbour has carryout and delivery locations in Noblesville and Sheridan, Indiana.  My guess is that the Noblesville location was the first since it is just off of Morse Reservoir, and the closest body of water to the Sheridan restaurant seems to be a retention pond.  I had heard good things about the Pizza by the […]

Mikey's Pizza Pit Stop in Knox, IN_Sausage, Green Olive, and Garlic Pizza

Mikey’s Pizza Pit Stop in downtown Knox, Indiana has been called the best pizza in town by some, and this is in a town with two other great pizza joints nearby (Gina Marie’s Pizza and Al’s Pizza and Subs).  Mikey’s Pizza Pit Stop reminded me a little bit of Al’s because they both add garlic to the […]

Pearl Street Pizzeria & Pub Review | Indianapolis, IN

Pearl Street Pizzeria & Pub_Margherita Pizza

Pearl Street Pizzeria & Pub in Indianapolis, Indiana can truly be considered a hidden gem as it is incredibly easy to miss unless you are really looking for it.  Some websites actually have its address as being on Pennsylvania Street, but it is on Pearl Street, which is really more of just an alley off […]

Oley’s Pizza Review | Fort Wayne, IN

Oley's Pizza_Pepperoni Double Crust Pizza

Oley’s Pizza has two restaurants in Fort Wayne, Indiana, and I ate at the one on the southwest side of town.  This location is in a small, less-than-spectacular-looking strip mall that offers limited signage indicating it houses a great pizzeria.  However, I quickly realized the facade is deceiving when I entered and found a packed house on […]

Al’s Pizza & Subs Review | Knox, IN

Al's Pizza & Subs_Pepperoni, Sausage, and Italian Sausage Pizza

Al’s Pizza & Subs is fairly new to Knox, Indiana, but it now joins the ranks of some great pizza places in this small town in my opinion. I know some Chicagoans claim the secret to their pizza is the tap water, and mabye that is true for the northwestern-Indiana town of Knox as well. There […]
