Pizza 317 | Carmel, IN

Outside

Pizza 317 is a new addition to the northeast Carmel pizza scene.  I imagine most of its business is delivery or carryout, but it does have some limited seating as well. Most of the items on the menu at Pizza 317 are named after something relating to central Indiana.  I started with the Colts Cheese […]

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 […]

Slimms Pizza and Salads is a recent addition to the fast custom pizza craze that seems to be sweeping the nation.  Their promise is to cook, cut, and serve your pizza in four minutes.  While this is similar to Blaze Pizza and Pie Five, what makes Slimms unique is that they are family-owned.  In fact, Slimms […]

Brixx Wood Fired Pizza | Fishers, IN

Bronx Bomber

Brixx Wood Fired Pizza appears to be built around two fundamentals that should have them destined for great success: good pizza and a nice craft beer selection.  Not that it’s necessary, but they actually have some food beyond pizza as well.  To sample something else before the pizza, I did try their bruschetta.  It was pretty good, but it […]

Little Caesars | Westfield, IN

Little Caesars_HOT-N-READY Pepperoni Pizza

With the proper limited expectations, I think you can be satisfied with the pizza you get from Little Caesars given the price.  I was able to get a HOT-N-READY pepperoni pizza, a HOT-N-READY sausage pizza, and two orders of their Crazy Bread for slightly less than $20.  Being able to comfortably feed four adults for […]
