Owned by Thiago Machado and Nicollie Conovalow, Brasiliana Pizza is available for takeout and delivery from Forrest Eatery ghost kitchen in Berkeley Park.

For meat lovers, try the Calabresa, which comes topped with a generous layer of Brazilian sausage and sliced onions. There’s also the Frango Catupiry topped with shredded chicken, bacon bits, squeezes of creamy Catupiry cheese, and lots of oregano. Like chocolate? Order the Brigadeiros pizza, a dessert pie with a thick layer of gooey chocolate fudge and chocolate sprinkles.

Hip-hop-inspired Slim & Husky’s Pizza Beeria opened on Howell Mill Road near Westside Provisions District, then added a second location on Metropolitan Parkway.

Toni! Toné!. It includes three types of pepperoni. The meaty Cee No Green pays tribute to crooner CeeLo Green from Atlanta-based Goodie Mob.

Giovanni DiPalma's popular Home Park pizzeria has since expanded into a Little Italia empire off of Hemphill Avenue. For those OTPers seeking a slice of Antico, there's a location in Alpharetta’s Avalon development and at the Battery near Braves Truist Park in Cobb County.
