Our Readers Tell Us The Best Places For Pizza In Greenville, SC

Posted on | 5 Comments

Are you craving pizza? Greenville locals have told us where to find the best pizza around town. Peruse our list to find your new favorite pizza in Greenville, SC.

There are over 75,000 pizzerias in the United States and as a $36 billion a year industry, Americans are champions when it comes to pizza eating. They eat approximately 100 acres of pizza per day, which is a gorgeous picture to imagine.

The South is known for some exceptional cuisine but it’s the Northeast that takes the award for the best pizza, especially the New York/New Jersey region (I’m originally from NJ and lived in Rome for a time, which I’m proud to say makes me a pizza expert – this is the only thing I’m an expert at so let me have it). Most pizzerias claim they are NY-style pizza, which consists of a thin crust topped with a delicious tomato sauce and melted cheese.

One astute Kidding Around Greenville reader noted that when people get asked what their favorite pizza place is, it’s implied it is NY-style because “let’s face it, is the only style that really matters.” Well said, sir.

Where To Get Great Pizza In Greenville, SC

We asked our readers where they go for the best pizza places in the Greenville area. I’ve been to most of these but I can personally recommend only one place that comes closest to the kind of pizza I grew up eating (aka the best kind) – New York Style Pizza- it’s Della Ventura’s in Greer, SC. There is no other place that comes close in terms of correctly cooking the dough, the balance of flavor in the sauce, and the right amount of cheese. For non-NY pizza, Sidewall Pizza takes the win there with their brick oven chewy dough and a wide array of fresh toppings.

Now that I’ve likely offended a bunch of people with my recommendation, let’s see where ya’ll go for pizza:

Della Ventura’s Ristorante and Pizzeria

Della Ventura is awesome. The closest thing we’ve had to NY pizza since moving here. Their pastas are delicious as well.

Jennifer T.

Della’s is definitely a great place. I’m from NJ and it is the closest thing to home.

Delicious Quick-Fired Pizza

Sometimes the kids can’t wait and everyone is hangry, and waiting 30+ minutes for a traditional pizza just won’t do. Lucky for us there are a few options that can have you out the door, pizza in hand in less than 10 minutes! Don’t worry these are not the cardboard crust pizzas you might be expecting, we wouldn’t dishonor pizza that way.

Blaze Pizza

This delicious and fast pizza is co-owned by basketball superstar LeBron James. The Pizza is made as it passes down a line of different sauce, cheese, meat, and veggie topping choices. It is then quick-fired in a specialty oven. Blaze also has some delicious artisan soda to complete your meal!

My kids love Your Pie on Woodruff rd, where you get to put your own pizza together like a subway style, and it’s brick oven as well. On Wednesdays kids eat free with every adult Pizza purchased! Children also get extra dough to play with while they wait for their pizza to be cooked, and a free Gelato after they are finished!

BRIXX! I adore Sidewall but if it’s a Sunday (and I’m not near Spartanburg) or if it’s late night, Brixx is amazing! They have great deals- BOGO after 10 which doesn’t help kids much but is fun (we did take advantage of this a few years back when a late showing of The Force Awakens kept us out late). They also have daily deals, often BOGO, which makes them super affordable. It’s artisan style pizza with alternative crusts available (whole wheat, cauliflower, gluten free). The Woodruff Road location is great because there’s that nice little plaza and hedge maze between… Read more »
