Vincenza’s pizza is the kind with really good marinara sauce served on a New York-style, thin crust — complete with white paper plates. They offer the unique stuff, too, like veggie- or meat-stuffed pizza; broccoli and cheese; and BBQ chicken.
This brewery serves up some really good wood-fired pizza. There are traditional flavors like white and red pizza.

A pierogi pizza lives at this Euclid Avenue shop. That might be all you need to know.

Need a little ‘za delivered right to your hotel? [We won’t judge.] Rascal House has you covered.
At this Tremont pizza shop, the pizza slices are larger than life. No seriously, this might sound crazy, but one slice might actually be enough to fill you up.

Only open for brunch on Saturdays and Sundays, many Clevelanders can’t get enough of Chef Dante’s wood-fired pizzas — especially the “Everything Bagel & Lox” flavor.
It’s so fun to watch someone make your pizza for you right in front of your face. The super-unique pie would be the cacio e pepe, which is Roman for “cheese and pepper.” It’s a white pizza and with dollops of creamy buratta cheese on each slice. It’s amazing.
The famous Sunny Side Pizza can be found here. Named as one of the nation’s best pizzas in by Zagat in 2013, it still holds up to that reputation. Bar Cento is open until 2 a.m. every single night of the week.
A lot of people know Saucy for its innovative craft brews. But, everyone knows the best pairing with beer is pizza. Saucy knows what’s up.
Il Rione’s resides inside of a renovated 1917 pub space. It’s really cool inside and the New York-style pizza is amazing.

Astoria doubles as a café and a market, but they also have some awesome pizza. Menu items include veal and lamb meatball pizza; four-cheese pizza; prosciutto and arugula pizza; and wild mushroom pizza.
Harlow’s might be one of the trendiest pizzerias we’ve ever seen. While they only offer five flavors, that’s more than enough because they make them so well. The pizza is wood-fired and flavors include marinara, margherita, bianca, salami and Leonardo (a white pizza with mozzarella, pistachios, grape tomatoes and fresh arugula).
Angelo’s is loved by tons of Clevelanders, so much so that it’s won the Cleveland Magazine “Best of CLE” award for pizza several years in a row. The sauce is a bit on the sweeter side.
Mikey’s Pizza shop is a tiny little space in the center of Crocker Park in the ‘burb of Westlake. Don’t let its size fool you, though, the pizzas are HUGE. Mikey makes different specialty pizzas every month like the Greek Freak (gyro pizza) or The Mac Daddy (big mac pizza). The specialties and the staple pizzas are available by both the slice and as a whole pie.
Flour restaurant on Cleveland east side offers some really good pizza. They have regular pizzas AND a breakfast pizza available during brunch on Sundays. (Their brunch involves bottomless mimosas, in case you need another reason to go!)
Home to the fluffiest, biggest-looking crust you’ve ever seen, Vero only makes 100 small batches of dough a day. So, the amount of goodness is limited, friends.
