Pizza in Indianapolis

I've searched previous threads but didn't find what I was looking for...

I'll be staying in downtown Indianapolis for a week and would like to find some pizza places. Preferably delivery, but I also have a car if the pizza is worth the drive.

I've read about the usual places and those listed on citysearch 'best of' already. Any other suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks!

  1. Well, it's a trip, but come on down to Bloomington and feast at Trulli Flatbread. They have the best pizza I've had outside of southern Italy.

    1. Another Bloomington suggestion: Mother Bear's. If I were in Indianapolis, I would make the drive just for that! It's a pretty nice drive unless the weather's bad.

      1. You have probably read about Bazbeaux in downtown Indy, but another option is the pizza at Palomino. It IS woodfired and very thin. No -- it is not typical Italian pizza, but it shares some intangible characteristics of the thin Roman pizza that I have never had anywhere in this country.

        1. Dom di Carlo's in Noblesville has the best pizza (IMHO).

          Long way from downtown Indy but oh so worth it.

          In the December 2007 edition of the Indianapolis Monthly, they were named The Best Pizza in the city. I totally agree. I've sent a lot of people there and every one of them has also loved it. Service is cheery and slow (sorry), they do have a wine list, but this is Noblesville and it won't set you on fire (but you could find something), and not only is the pizza good (try the hot Italian sausage OMG), the calazones are good too.

          Dom di Carlo's, 654 Logan Street, Noblesville IN 317-776-6500

          My two cents!

          1. If you like NY style pizza, Giorgio's next to Starbucks on the Meridian Street traffic circle is very good and they have pizza by the slice at lunch.

              "Meridian Street Traffic Circle:" are you talking about Monument Circle Downtown, or another traffic circle somewhere else in town? I'm an Indy native and have relatives there, but haven't lived there in a long time.

              At one time Union Jack Pizza in Broad Ripple had good deep dish pizza, but they seem to have gone out of business or they've moved (as of 2006, last time I was in town).

              1. re: paoconnell

                I assume that is what knielson2 is talking about, though I have never noticed the place. I guess it could be way north as they are putting in lots of roundabouts in Carmel.

                Union Jack is still there, but I haven't eaten there in years. Last I remeber the quality was way down compared to my childhood memories.
