So, grab a napkin, and let us take you on a journey through the best pizza joints in the area.

Pizza Quest
If you’re on a quest for the perfect pizza, look no further than Pizza Quest. This establishment is a culinary treasure, serving up gourmet hand-tossed pies with Chef Nick “Chewie” Chard’s special dough that takes two days to ferment and his “Top Secret Red Sauce.” Choose your own adventure with toppings you select or indulge in their house pizzas, such as the “Ewok Village,” which features Bay leaf and shallot cream sauce, sauteed gourmet mush, onion, roasted red pepper, and capers. Pizza aficionados will taste the passion and dedication that goes into crafting each delicious slice in every bite. 

Back Alley Pizza Joint
This local gem offers mouthwatering scratch-made thin-crust pies with a creative twist. Try their “7th Heaven” pizza made with – you guessed it – seven kinds of cheese, including mozzarella, provolone, Swiss, cheddar, feta, parmesan, and goat cheese. Or go for their more traditional “Back Alley Deluxe,” featuring pepperoni, sausage, red onion, green pepper, and fresh mushrooms. With very limited seating, this is a place best suited for take-out. 

Pizza Mambo
Prepare to dance with delight at Pizza Mambo, another local favorite with limited indoor and outdoor seating. This pizzeria features house-made dough baked in a stone oven for pies that are crispy, chewy, and bursting with flavors.
