Pizza is often considered one of those convenient foods. Pick up the phone call your favorite carryout and bam you have dinner in less than an hour (with a clean kitchen). Honestly over the past few months of my blogging I’ve come to realize it is more than a convenience, it is a craft. Kids love pizza, if you even mention it they go crazy. As an adult I want that same enthusiasm regarding pizza but on a more sophisticated level than just cheese or pepperoni. I want to bite into a slice of pizza and instantly jump for joy in utter satisfaction. I’ve traveled throughout the Tampa Bay area and I’ve compiled a list of the Top 5 places that have the best pie.
2424 Tyrone Blvd North. Ste #524B St. Petersburg, FL 33710
Veni Vedi Veci Midici which was an LA based company has recently expa
nded to the St. Pete area. This is as authentic napolean pizza as it gets.
2. Eddie and Sams
203 E Twiggs St. Tampa, FL 33602
Offering NY style pizza by the slice or a full pie in the downtown Tampa area. It’s an excellent choice for lunch. Try the eggplant parmesan for a hearty treat.
718 S. Howard. Tampa, FL 33606
Inspired Italian, wood fire pizza located in the SoHo district of Tampa Bay. Ava’s is serving up more than pizza, but their pizza was good enough to make the top 5.
4. Mellow Mushroom
The psychedelic feel makes it an out of this world experience. It’s worth a trip to Brandon, but plan accordingly there is usually a wait (and for good reason).
5. Westshore Pizza
10309 Causeway Blvd. Brandon, FL 33619
The crust is so soft. The slices are large and the prices are good. Give the white ricotta spinach pizza a try! Its amazing!!
