Is there such a thing as great pizza in Indy?
Coming to Indy in June for my annual pilgrimage and I'm going to be wanting a great pizza or two while I'm there.
Usually I have pizza sent from Chicago but we're doing without a kitchen on this trip.
Where can I find the best independent pizza on the east side of town or near the track? No chains please.
Thanks in advance!
Giorgio's on Market - right off Monument Circle downtown. New York style
By the track - Union Jack's Pub on Crawfordsville Rd. - right off 465 - about 2 miles west of the track. Chicago style pizza
South...Maria's on Shelby St. homemade sausage (pizza like you remember when you were a kid)
Sorry I can't think of anything on the eastside. How far east?
Wow, Spoon, pretty much what I would recommend. Giorgio's is huge, gooey, thin Brooklyn style. Maria's is near south-central, but worth it. I believe the cheese is a mixture of mozz. and muenster. Very unique. Great sauce. And Union Jack's (like the one in Broad Ripple) is good Chicago-style pizza.
But East-side? Wow? Here is a link from the Sta. Might want to try Salute Italian Ristorante. If there is a Pizza King, you may want to give it a shot. Ex-girl friend took me to one in Muncie and it was really tasty thin crust. The pepperoni was diced ala Totino's pizza (which, I hate to admit I still crave sometimes)
Bazbeaux Pizza (Downtown and Broad Ripple) is excellent, as is Datza Pizza, downtown on Pennsylvania Avenue.
