Upland Brewing Co. | Carmel, IN

Upland Brewing Company_Margherita Pizza

Upland is a brewery based out of Bloomington, Indiana that has become popular enough to open up a couple additional locations in central Indiana.  All of their beers are very good, and I am also a fan of their burgers and tenderloins.  Therefore, I was excited to try their pizza, but I don’t think it […]

Subway | Carmel, IN

Subway Pepperoni Flatizza

Despite the fact that they annoyingly call it Flatizza, I felt obligated to try this offering at Subway since they are technically the world’s largest restaurant chain that serves pizza.  I went in with fairly low expectations, and I would say those were appropriately set.  My pepperoni “Flatizza” had a somewhat tough crust, and the sauce tasted […]

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 […]

Wise Pies Pizza & Subs | Terre Haute, IN

Wise Pies Pizza & Subs_Pepperoni and Carnivore Slices

Wise Pies serves New York-style pizza in Terre Haute, Indiana  They’ll certainly make your choice of pizza from scratch, but I took advantage of their premade pizza by-the-slice option.  If I had more time, I wouldn’t have done this because I’ve seen the reheating of these slices negatively affect the consistency of the crust at many […]

Tomato Bar | Valparaiso, IN

Tomato Bar_Sausage, Green Olive, and Garlic Pizza

Tomato Bar in Valparaiso, Indiana serves appetizers, salads, sandwiches, and calzones, but their specialty is definitely pizza.  I will give them credit for having a pretty cool offering as far as salads go – a build your own option that has a huge amount of toppings to choose from.  Still, even that couldn’t get me to […]

Jake’s Beach House | Monticello, IN

Jake's Beach House_Sausage and Pepperoni Pizza with Mushroom on Half

Typically, I wouldn’t expect really good pizza from a restaurant that you can access via boat in Indiana, but Jake’s Beach House on Lake Shafer in Monticello is an exception.  The reason?  They get all of their ingredients from Pizza King.  I ordered a pizza with pepperoni, sausage, and mushrooms per the recommendation of a Pizza […]

New York Pizza Garden | Fishers, IN

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 […]

Coalition | Carmel, IN

Coalition_The Paragon Pizza

Coalition caters to those who want their own pizza and want it quick.  Menus are available at the entrance, and they have cashiers ready to take your order for your very own eleven inch pizza, sandwich, or pasta.  After a stop to fill up your cup with your favorite Puck’s soda flavor (they have beer and wine as well), you just need […]

South of Chicago Pizza & Italian Beef | Fishers, IN

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 […]
