Best Pizza Newport...?

What's the best pizza in Newport RI? I sometimes get a pizza at Red Parrot and it's good, but red Parrot is a restaurant not a pizza place. One time during a rain storm I got pizza delivered to the hotel and it was fair from a place called A-1(? I think), but I wouldn't get it again. Anyway, in a town with good food and drink I was just wondering what people's favorite pizza places are in Newport?

  1. there is no great delivery - only pretty good

    For delivery I like Kingston Pizza, if you order a large ask for the small plain that comes w it for free.

    There is a new place called crazy dough, haven't been but they seem to have won some awards from their other places - they aren't delivering yet, but say they will in the fall.

    For eating in -

    Fifth Element has great pizzas - the two regulars and the special are always very tasty
    Pasta beach has a pretty good thin brick oven pizza (prosciutto and arugula is my favorite)

      carmellas out in middleton does a good new york thin crust,via-via had good pizza a few years back,havent had it in a long time go with carmellas.....

    2. Really is no great pizza delivery in different times i was ordering Nikolas, A1 or Carmellas but none are really that great, if you are like me and want NY style. I recently tried Crazy Dough and it was very good although pizza's start at $20!! ouch. Pasta Beach does good wood fire pizzas for take-out. I've also like the veggie pie from via via although i have mixed feelings about their staff.

        Been meaning to get to Pasta Beach. I didn't mean to get into pizza delivery... I meant pizza suggestions and explained I once had A-1 which is supposed to be pretty good and thought it was actually not-so-good ( not bad though).

            My daughter is a senior at Salve Regina and really likes Via Via. They deliver until the wee hours of the morning. She grew up eating good pizza and loves when she come home and we drive an hour to Stamford to The Colony.

      2. West Main Pizza in Portsmouth has the best pie on the island. Great crust. And the Blue Cow, well, it is so good that I once flew to Aruba with a frozen on for my husband.
