Despite its rather insistent name, this second-generation pizza purveyor, serves its signature brick-oven pizzas alongside a variety of Italian dishes, and heaping helpings of friendly local flair. Starting with a crust that falls somewhere between thin and traditional hand-tossed, Just Pizza cooks each savory pie to-order, using fresh ingredients, house-made sauce, and premium mozzarella cheese sourced from only the most outwardly affectionate cows. Dress a large (14") cheese pizza ($10.75) with your favorite add-ons such as sausage (+ $1.25), pineapple (+ $1.25), hot dogs (+ $1.25), or a smaller cheese pizza (+ $9.75). Or, feed an entire army of slice-slingers with the five pound supreme pizza ($19.50), sporting supporting sustenance in the form of extra cheese, mushrooms, onions, green peppers, black olives, beef, sausage, and pepperoni. For diners looking to dine beyond the realm of dough disks, Just Pizza complements its circular comestibles with a toothsome array of fresh salads (starting at $4), baked pastas ($5.50+), and calzones ($5.75+). Because it passed on the opportunity to call itself "Just Tables", Just Pizza is a carry-out only facility, arming patrons with piles of hot, aromatic eatables, and then sending them on their way to feast in the comfort of their own homes.

In creating Brixx Wood Fired Pizza, the owners sought to combine an upscale dining experience with tasty casual food, and so they came up with a foolproof formula: wood-fired brick ovens plus craft beers and microbrews. The ovens are used to create more than 22 specialty pizzas that come adorned with traditional Italian-style toppings or fun twists such as buffalo chicken, pimento cheese, or classic Thai flavors. To cater to everyone, they prepare their pies with traditional, whole-wheat, or gluten-free crust and aim to always have vegan cheese in the kitchen.

In the kitchen at Mario’s Pizza, chefs heap cheese, steak, and sun-dried tomatoes onto oversize New York–style and sicilian pizza crusts. A white pizza covered in ricotta cheese, fresh garlic, and mozzarella reminds taste buds of eating a delicious snowman, and comes in sizes ranging from 10 inches to as large as 19 inches. Baked pasta and sandwiches, such as a philly steak or veal parmigiana, round out the menu.

At Bella Donna Italian Restaurant, duos rest amid Tuscan-themed décor and munch on house-made pastas and sauces or gourmet custom pizzas, crafted from seasonally-available local ingredients. Tongues lift their anchors and embark on culinary voyages with starters such as the dozen deep-fried chicken wings, slathered in a mix of house-made hot, medium, or mild wing sauce and served with blue cheese or ranch dressing. Then, diners settle in for entrees such as the muffalatta, in which parmesan-sprinkled pizza dough bears italian olive salad, ham, and salami. The Tuscan chicken, sautéed with parmesan cheese and lemon sauce, arrives to tables lounging on a bed of pasta under a chic coverlet of baby spinach. Meanwhile, spaghetti tossed in slow-cooked tomato sauce pairs with two hefty meatballs, showcasing an Italian staple that will completely jam a staple gun. Dinners draw to a close with a Nutella and ricotta calzone or other confection from the mouthwatering dessert menu. Gluten-free options are also available, including carrot cake and pasta.

Domino's recently reformulated its pizza recipe, which puts the buyer in command of a plentitude of pie-personalizing possibilities. Test the sturdiness of a hand-tossed thin crust with mounds of hearty marinara, ham, chicken, green peppers, black olives, and spinach, or fill a deep-dish foundation with alfredo sauce, bacon, onions, jalapeños, fresh mushrooms, and banana peppers. While delicious design options stretch into infinity like a taffy pull in a black hole, the eatery's specialty pizzas make choosing more manageable. Peruse pies like the MeatZZa Feast, which is piled high with pepperoni, ham, italian sausage, beef, and extra mozzarella, and the Pacific Veggie, a flashy West Coast–concoction of roasted red peppers, spinach, onions, mushrooms, tomatoes, black olives, feta, mozzarella, and provolone.
