Owner Randy Price curates a creative menu of New Haven–style "apizza" in more than 30 styles. His team crafts fresh dough daily using unbleached flour, creates sauce from handpicked Italian and Chilean tomatoes, and sprinkles pies with cheese from home-schooled cows. The famous Challenger—a 22-inch pizza stuffed with a mélange of vegetables and meats that weigh in at nearly 10 pounds—presents the hungriest visitors with a challenge to conquer the hot wheel in an hour or less, a feat that has earned a place on the Travel Channel's Man Vs. Food roster of surmounted food battles.
Domino’s has been decorating dough canvases with flavorful sauces, an assortment of cheeses, and high-quality toppings that range from classic to unconventional since 1960. Domino’s dough is tossed daily and stretched by human hands, not by clumsy catapults and model airplanes flying in opposite directions. Treat friends to a tasteful feast by checking the online menu and crafting a custom masterpizza with Domino's wide range of ingredients. Famished diners too starved to choose their own toppings can select from Domino’s American Legends, featuring signature flavors from throughout the land. Pizzas such as the Pacific Veggie, Honolulu Hawaiian, or Wisconsin 6 Cheese impart all the delicious diversity of a road trip without the hassle of decoding an atlas. Nonpizza fare includes pastas, sandwiches, and breadsticks.
The coal-fired oven at Rock N' Coal Pizza fires out Italian favorites that fuse flavors from both the Old World and the New. Chefs specialize in both classic Neapolitan pizzas—such as the shrimp and vodka sauce pie—as well as the more modern New York style pizza topped with toppings such as buffalo chicken. But guests don't have to stick to just modern or traditional. They can combine both styles with the menu's build-your-own-pizza option. Guests can choose to build their own prime beef burger, too, or select one of the chef's gourmet combination such as the bistro burger—a patty topped with bacon, cheddar, and a fried egg.
In the massive main room, flatscreen televisions hang over booths casting a warm glow over meals and broadcasting the day's biggest games. The main room may be a destination for sports fans, but Rock N' Coal's private room gives guests a chance to celebrate special occasions or plan their next move in a rapidly escalating prank war.
Christie Flanagan has been cooking for more than 20 years, and along the way has managed to conquer one of the country's favorite foods: the pizza. A graduate of the Culinary Institute of America and the owner of Napolitano's Brooklyn Pizza, she and her team build their New York- and Sicilian-style pies from housemade dough and pizza sauce every day. An array of slices is always available, while pizzas such as the barbecue chicken-topped Cyclone or the Luna Park "White" Pie with ricotta come as full pies. The team's calzones and stromboli capture those fresh pizza flavors in appetizing pockets and the Brooklyn deep-fried calzone adds to the long list of talents inherent in very hot oil.
Included in Rhode Island Monthly's Best of Rhode Island, The Pizza Gourmet accommodates customers with a choice of custom pizzas cooked in-house or raw pies that customers can take home. All pizzas start out as a plate of fresh garlic, olive oil, parmesan, asiago, and italian parsley, but customers can personalize their pies with a multitude of crust, sauce, cheese, and topping options. Although the eatery specializes in pizza, noncircular appetites can be slaked with menu items such as sun-dried tomato pesto penne, italian grinders, and sodas.
The chefs also take their culinary creations out into the world via four theme catering menus, outfitting tailgate parties, corporate breakfasts, and cocktail parties with equal enthusiasm. Food-eaters can customize their catering orders according to dietary needs, as well, including vegan and gluten-free catering options. Inside the restaurant, an exposed-brick accent wall is painted fire-truck red to match the dining room's vivid crimson accents. The walls are covered in a rainbow of handwritten menu options, with entrees, appetizers, salads, and desserts all vying for perfect penmanship awards.

Guests at this cheerful joint perch at front sidewalk tables, washing back crispy falafels, sizzling gyro wraps, and freshly made pizzas with frosty beers.
