Best Pizza in Massachusetts

 

 

1

Picco (South End, Boston)

Mmm, Picco actually means “pizza and ice cream company”, and that’s basically what our standard order is when we are there. Have you ever had a really delicious dinner roll? Well, to us the Picco pizza is like eating a delicious pillowy dinner roll with tangy tomato sauce – and it’s crispy and wood-grilled on the outside — the char lends a ton of flavor! We typically start with their arugula salad which they kindly split in half for two, followed by a large pizza with garlic and ricotta additions, and a small sundae each for dessert – to die for! Now if only they delivered to our area, that would be dangerous….!

Flatbread Pizza in Somerville (Davis Square, Somerville)

On Wednesdays for much of the year, the Davis Square Farmers Market is in the lot outside of Flatbread, and their chefs have been known to pick up some local produce for their pizza. Their weekly specials are listed on a chalkboard and include all sourcing information for everything from their cheese to vegetables, and best of all their wood-fired grill sparkles (it was hand-made by community members!) Our favorite pizza is the Somerville Community Flatbread which has delicious and sweet caramelized onions and is sliced in thin pieces to maximize your eating pleasure. Best of all, you can go bowling too! Try it on our Davis Square Somerville Food Tour.

Za (Kendall Square, Cambridge)

On our Kendall Square, Cambridge Food Tour we stop at Za and Evoo, sister restaurants which really are the heart of Kendall Square. We are lucky to meet with their chefs and learn first-hand how dedicated they really are to excellence and customer service. Their pizza flavors are fresh and delicious, from corn pizza to mac and cheese pizza – you won’t find anything else this fresh and inventive!

Regina Pizzeria (Fenway, Boston)

The Official Pizza of the Red Sox for a reason, Regina Pizza is as Boston as the Citgo sign! Started in the North End, this outpost near Fenway Park is a joyful place to grab a quick slice, but you can also try it inside the Park. The pizza is always a hit, no frills, and the perfect non-greasy slice — join our Fenway Food Tour to try it yourself!

Pizza and Sub Stop (Lowell, Massachusetts)

Honestly, you haven’t lived until you’ve had tikka masala pizza – hot and steamy and incredible flavors, we are HERE for this fusion. In Lowell, there’s no place that does it better than Pizza and Sub Stop, a hole in the wall on Merrimack Street just steps from the first CVS — try their Indian pizza menu, and you won’t be disappointed.

6

Pinocchio’s (Harvard Square, Cambridge)

Yes it is Mark Zuckerberg’s favorite pizza from the time he was a student at Harvard. And it’s also a favored slice in Harvard Square. Pinocchio’s delivers a delicious pie, cut in rectangular pieces. Our favorite is their traditional Sicilian tomato basil, and the crust is light and airy so you won’t feel weighed down. Curious to try some? Take our Harvard Square Food Tour this Sunday, and we’ll indulge!

Veggie Crust (Union Square, Somerville)

Rare is there a delicious multigrain crust, but we ship Veggie Crust’s delicious thin crust multigrain with all the veggies. This spot right outside of Union Square in Somerville also has delicious vegan pizza. Our favorite is the Garden Veggie with added corn (hold the ginger and jalapenos for us!) and of course the multigrain crust. I would say it’s on speed-dial in our house. And now they have a second location in Brookline.

Hot Box (Union Square, Somerville, Bow Market)

Well there’s bar pizza, and it’s delicious. What makes it a bar pizza, you say? Practically no crust! And we love it! At Hot Box in Somerville, you’ll find a red circular pie filled to the brim with sauce and cheese — just sizzling with flavor. Their 10″ South Shore pies are available inside Bow Market, which we visit on our Union Square Somerville Food Tour on Sundays.

Romanos Pizza (Roslindale, Boston)

While doing research for our Roslindale Boston Food Tour, we discovered Romano’s sicilian slice. Although it’s currently a mix of mexican and italian offerings, this pizza spot fits right in town which has diverse roots. There are lots of delicious Italian spots around Roslindale from Tony’s Market to Sophia’s Grotto.

Bella Luna & The Milky Way (Jamaica Plain, Boston)

My favorite memory is visiting here on Pie (3.14) day because they really have fun with it. You can’t go wrong with a pizza at Bella Luna — right near the Sam Adams brewery. They have a variety of cosmic pizzas and also a full menu if you’re interested in doing a pizza as an app instead. Try our Jamaica Plain Food Tour for more delicious options!

HighBrow (Northampton, MA)

Yum! HighBrow hearth pies are just what the doctor ordered – and we were excited to find them while researching for our Northampton Food Tours! Chef Drew runs a full wood-fired kitchen, and he uses high quality ingredients that delight and inspire — from short rib pizza to truffle mushroom.

Address: 12 Crafts Avenue, Northampton, MA
