25 Stellar Places for Pizza: Greenville, SC (Our Favorites for 2023)

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.


Best 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, SC 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. No other place 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 its 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’s Ristorante and Pizzeria
337 S Buncombe Road, Greer | 864.989. 0100

Della Ventura’s has some of the best pizzas in Greenville, SC based on our reader’s suggestions! Their New York-style pizzas are as close as it gets in Greenville to the real deal, and they also offer a plethora of Italian dishes with hearty portions. Some of their popular dishes include calzones, baked ziti, hot subs, and chicken parmigiana. Do not forget to order their garlic knots, they are superb.

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

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

This *secret* pizza place has gained a cult following with pizza enthusiasts in Greenville, SC. They offer pizza carry-out only and their classic thin-crust pizza is always well done.

All pies are 16”, 8 slices and they do not do half toppings or substitutions. They absolutely recommend preordering your pizza, and if they are sold out of pizza for the day you can order for the next time slot available the next day.

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 »
