Best Pizza in Hampton Roads

krisrishere Apr 4, 2011 11:28 AM

I don't believe I've ever seen a post about pizza and HR...

My favorites are as follows:

Best Overall - Primo Pizza, Virginia Beach
Best Greek-Style pizza - Athens, Virginia Beach
Best Thin Crust - Franco's, Ocean View or Military Highway
Best Greasy 2AM maybe had a little too much to drink Slice - DelVecchios, any location

What are your favorites?

    I just got a Pilot Online Daily deal for a place called Firebrew in VB, has anyone been there? Sounds like wood fired pizza, but I can't be sure from the website?

      I tried it a few weeks back. The pizza was pretty decent but for wood fired I thought it was a little doughy. I was hoping for a more crackly crust. But in the end it was tasty enough and it certainly wasn't expensive. Can't complain.

      Does any place around here do either wood or coal oven pizza?

          Thanks for the Rec. I went to the Bakers Crust in Ghent on Saturday and had a Pizza Margaretta. While it had less cheese than I would have liked, all in all a very good pie. Next time, I'll order extra cheese and it should be a heavenly experience...

        Love the stuffed 1/2 veggie, 1/2 meat pizza at Pungo Pizza.
        Love the stuffed pizza at Primo's as well but very different. I think their regular slices can be too greasy/floppy at times.

        Had a pretty tasty thin crust not greasy with a nice crisp bottom pie just recently at Spaghetti Eddie's in Chesapeake, however I was pretty hungry that day! :)

          I think Primo Pizza is pretty spot on. Never had a bad experience there and the rest of the menu is excellent as well.

              Hey Kris,
              The people out here really like Chesapeake Pizza on Battlefield Blvd. in Great Bridge. It's been there for many years. It's almost as good as my own!
