Looking for the best pizza in Greenville? Look no further. Greenville is full of above-average pizzerias, from locally owned gems to branches of chains that run like well-oiled machines. You can find whatever you want quickly and right within your neighborhood. Here are just three of the options nearby to help you in your quest for the perfect slice.

Family Owned Pizzeria

Dellaventura’s Ristorante and Pizzeria is family-owned and -operated, through and through. The clan that owns it actually works in the kitchen crafting each pie. This family has 39 years of experience, all starting with a pizza place in Staten Island. That’s where the current owner opened the first of many pizza joints with his father. In all, this family has successfully run five different pizza restaurants sprinkled all across the United States, so they know what they’re doing. They only use imported pecorino romano cheese and grande mozzarella to craft the best-tasting pies possible. They serve other menu items like meatballs, lasagna, soups, and cannoli, which are made according to generations-old family recipes. They also do catering and private events right in the dining room if you have to feed a large party.

Take and Bake

Papa Murphy’s may be a small chain, but that doesn’t make its pizza taste any less fresh than the pies at a family-owned place. In fact, they might taste even fresher due to Papa Murphy’s approach to pizza-making. All you have to do is order your pizza and pick it up; the staff put together all of the ingredients and package it up so it’s ready to go straight into your oven when you get home. This is the freshest pizza you can get without making it yourself, and each pie only takes 15 minutes to bake. Everything is prepared fresh at the beginning of the day, too. Chefs toss the dough, shred the mozzarella, and chop the veggies each morning. Pick from the signature pizza, the thin-crust, the crispy pizza, the pan pizza, or the gigantic stuffed pizza. The stuffed pizzas pack all of the toppings between two layers of fresh dough. Papa Murphy’s is open everyday from 11 a.m. until 9 p.m., so you’ll never go without a pizza!

Best Delivery

Wedgy’s is all about fast delivery and great deals. If you don’t want to call in, you can actually order via the website. Wedgy’s specialty is the Scott Pocket, which is kind of like a calzone, but so much better. It’s pizza crust smothered with the signature three-cheese blend and stuffed with even more cheese and your choice of ingredients. Try the Italian, spinach veggie, buffalo chicken, or chicken bacon ranch Scott Pockets. Wedgy’s also has more coupons and specials than anywhere else in town. There are more than a dozen just on their website, and there are even special coupons available specifically for customers who like and follow the Wedgy’s Facebook page.

These are just a few of the fantastic pizza restaurants in Greenville. Try these first and then work your way through the rest in town!
