This popular pizza joint in Trolley Square is the place to go to when you want a classic, Italian-American pie. Rich tomato sauce, doughy crusts and creamy mozzarella combine for a pizza you’ll be dreaming about long after the last slice is gone. Better order a full pie to take home with you; you’re going to want to indulge in some leftovers.
We’re sure you’ll want to browse the menu yourself, but if you love the irresistible taste of truffles then you can’t go wrong with the Roasted Mushroom & Caramelized Onions pizza at Pizza by Elizabeth. It features a caramelized onion spread, mozzarella, gruyère, roasted mushrooms, spinach sauté, and black truffle cream. We’re drooling already.
The pizza at Nicola is truly unique, making it some of the best pizza in Delaware for a few reasons. To prepare their pies, they extract all the fat from the beef, blend three different kinds of cheeses, and stick to an all-natural recipe for the dough and sauce. The result? A pie that’s so tantalising you’ll surely come back for more.
Fancy an entire evening of pizza and drinks? The Wood Fired Pizza Shop is the place to be. Their industrial dining room turns out traditional and specialty wood-fired pies along with some superb cocktails and craft beers. Start with the Fighting Blue Hen as it’s got a creamy buffalo wing sauce that’ll blow your mind.
This pizza joint is pretty new, but we’re convinced that once you sample a slice you’ll also be converted into a lifelong fan. The locale is industrial and trendy and the pizzas are named after local neighbourhoods. Don’t worry, they’re tastier than they sound. In fact, they’re downright delicious. If you get thirsty, head on over to the famous Wilmington Brew Works next door for a brew or two.
Pizza, pasta, and hand-rolled cannolis…what more do you need to come and take you away to foodie heaven? Frederica Pizza & Pasta House is well-known in the area for many of their pizzas. But, we can’t make a list of the best pizza in Delaware without mentioning the Chicago deep dish they offer. It’s loaded with cheese and a unique, tasty sauce.
Forget about planning a trip to Naples. All you have to do in order to sample a taste of the city is to head to MidiCi in Newark. Their Neapolitan pizza is so authentic that you’ll think it’s been imported straight from Italy. The dough is light, thin, soft and chewy, with a high crust. And, the toppings are just as deliciously authentic. Graze through a Truffle & Proscuitto or stick with something more classic like Four Cheese.
