Best Pizza in CincinnatiHow do these rankings work?
The food all comes from family recipes and the authenticity shows. Pizzas come out of the wood oven as if it were Italy, with bubbling crusts and the perfect amount of char.
Try their fig pizza: fig jam, fontina, prosciutto, balsamic arugula, parmigiano reggiano.
The key to a classic Detroit pie is the deep pans in which the pizzas are baked, which gives it a crunchy crust and soft base, with carmelised cheese on top. Taglio does this perfectly. Toppings include pepperoni, basil, and Mike’s hot honey, while there’s also great ‘crust dips’. We love the creamy gorgonzola.
Via Vite is a stylish Italian restaurant in downtown Cincinnati. It has a great selection of traditional dishes (the salt crust Branzino!) but take our advice and focus in on the pizza. With toppings such as porcini mushrooms and truffle pate you won’t be able to resist.
Camporosso is a classic Neopolitan wood-fired pizzeria that serves up pies just as good as anywhere in Italy. It’s all about the dough, which they prove for over a day in advance, resulting in that perfect springy and spongey crust. They also make their own mozzarella in-house – this is the real deal.
When all you really want after partying in Mount Lookout is that late-night slice of pizza, this is the place to go. Ramundo’s serves up specialty pizzas, salads, calzones, subs and appetisers, like the “Ramundough Bites” (pepperoni and cheese rolled in dough). Try their famous 25″ Pizza Challenge if you dare: two people tackle a huge pie in just 10 minutes.
This popular sports bar with TVs and a big widescreen for all the games also serves up some of the best pizza in Cincinnati. They cook up a more American-style pizza which is served by the pan on the table and which is perfect for sharing. You can choose from extra-thin crust to thick Sicilian, with plenty of delicious toppings to add on.
Order the huge Bearcat pizza for a feast of 30 slices to share.
If you’re in the mood for a more gourmet pie, then Harvest Pizzeria is perfect. They partner with over 20 local farms to create an incredible menu full of locally sourced ingredients. Build your own pie from their artisan list of toppings, or go with one of their own creations. The crusts are super fluffy and chewy – perfection.
This is a pizza that you are not going to forget in a hurry.
