2. Pizzology

Pizzology sources fresh ingredients from local family farms, so you’re sure of delicious toppings. Think: house-made mozzarella, Capriole Frams goat cheese, artichoke cream or roast peppadews.

Changing weekend specials means there’ll always be a creative new pie to try.

3. Jockamo Upper Crust Pizza

This is a real local favourite thanks to the creative variety of sauces and toppings. Thin crust dough comes with a choice of classic sauces or Thai peanut sauce, alfredo, creamy parmesan or spicy buffalo.

Be sure to try the Chicken Pesto pie: it’s a flavour fest of basil pesto sauce, chicken, roasted tomato, green onion, black-olive and a 3-cheese blend.

4. King Dough Pizza

King Dough is a place where the act of making pizza is a true craft. Their unique, special, house-made creations are as real as it gets.

They offer a selection of wood-fired pizzas ranging from vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free pies, to classic favorites. They are big enough to split with a friend, or to take home leftovers all to yourself.

5. Pearl Street

Locals rave about the handmade specialty pizzas and local micro-brews on tap here, and for good reason. Their artisan-style pizzas have fresh dough and thick, chewy crusts – pure deliciousness.

Try the Pear & Gorgonzola with Olive Oil, Bartlett Pears, Fresh Arugula, Gorgonzola and Mozzarella, drizzled with Balsamic Glaze.

6. Brozinni

In the mood for a big, greasy slice of New York-style pizza? Brozinnis is the place to go in Indianapolis. It’s a great family-friendly spot with tasty pies and good vibes.

They go above and beyond though, as they even make their our own sauce & dough and grind their our own cheese. This is NY pizza that’s even better than the Big Apple.
