1. Vingenzo's

Copy Link
105 E Main St
Woodstock, GA 30188
(770) 924-9133
Visit Website
In charming downtown Woodstock, the certified-official Neapolitan pizzas, mozzarella bar, and gelato selection (try everything from fig-gorgonzola to chocolate-hazelnut) make Vingenzo's a favorite for locals and the pizza-savvy ITPers who gladly make the trek down I-75 for quality pies and great service without the long Atlanta wait times.

2. Double Zero Napoletana

Copy Link
5825 Roswell Rd
Atlanta, GA 30328
(404) 991-3666
Visit Website
From the team behind The Iberian Pig, Sugo, and forthcoming Cooks & Soldiers, Sandy Springs's Double Zero Napoletana features traditional Neapolitan pizzas as well as panini, salads, secondi, and a hefty menu of antipasti and other small plates.

3. Campania

Copy Link
800 North Main Street
Alpharetta, GA 30009
(770) 559-4674
Visit Website
Authentic Italian pizza in the heart of Alpharetta? Find it here at Campania right alongside deals like $3 drafts on Mondays and half-price wines by the glass on Wednesday.

4. Verra Zanno

Copy Link
11600 Medlock Bridge Rd
Duluth, GA
(678) 473-0209
Visit Website
By the slice or whole, the pizza at Verra-Zano out in Johns Creek has won hearts all over the far northern 'burbs. Build your own pie or go for one of the set options, but don't miss the garlicky pizza knots, cannoli, or "side order" of eggplant parmesan.

5. Taste of Italy

Copy Link
8265 Highway 92, Ste 106
Woodstock, GA 30189
(770) 928-3764
Visit Website
Independently run after breaking away from the other locations, this Taste of Italy is the best of the lot. The restaurant has everything you'd expect from a place with Brooklyn and and Neapolitan ties, plus items like pizza sandwiches and bruschetta pizza.

6. Alpine Bakery and Trattoria

Copy Link
12315 Crabapple Rd
Alpharetta, GA 30004
(770) 410-9883
Visit Website
Now well settled into its new location, Alpine Bakery gets nods for its standout desserts and its new dinner menu, but the simple pizza list, a holdover from its days on Rucker Road, shouldn't be missed. Get a 14-inch for the table to start, then move on to the other offerings.

7. Your Pie

Copy Link
625 W Crossville Rd, #110
Roswell, GA 30075
(770) 993-7944
Visit Website
This Athens favorite is coming soon to Buckhead, but in the meantime, stop by the Roswell outpost if the trip down 316 isn't in the cards. Pick your crust, your sauce, your cheese, and your toppings— and look out for gluten-free and vegan options as well.

8. Blue Moon Pizza

Copy Link
2359 Windy Hill Rd SE
Marietta, GA 30067
(770) 984-2444
Visit Website
For totally indulgent pizzas— barbecue chicken, Thai chicken, jerk chicken, bacon cheeseburger— and novelty appetizers like the cheese fries topped with cayenne-candied bacon, Blue Moon Pizza is your spot. Skip the cheesy martini menu and go for the featured beers and trivia instead.

9. Shorty's Pizza - Tucker

Copy Link
3701 Lawrenceville Hwy
Tucker, GA 30084
(770) 414-6999
Visit Website
The standalone Tucker outpost of Shorty's Pizza serves up build-your-own pies in addition to musical themed offerings. Try the G Love & Special Sauce, with sliced steak, red and green peppers, roasted onions, and cheddar, or the Ravi Shankar, a vegan white pie with curry oil, roasted vegetables, and mint chutney.

10. Peace Love and Pizza

Copy Link
4200 Wade Green Rd NW
Kennesaw, GA
(301) 447-4992
Visit Website
Prices can be high at this Kennesaw joint, but aren't the pizzas (aka "Extra Cool Jam Up Pies") with names like Meatasaurus Rex and Groovylicious worth the cost? Get delivery until 11 p.m. on weekends for all your late-night OTP pizza cravings, and check out the psychedelic menu here.
