If you’ve seen Hairspray, you probably know the song, “Good Morning, Baltimore!” Indeed, it is always a good day here knowing that there are several pizza places where you can easily get comfort food. But of course, not all pizza places are created equal. Some have greasy food and mediocre customer service, which are our pet peeves. And that is why we selected only the top 12 best pizza in Baltimore to help you narrow down your choices.
If you want the best pizza in Baltimore, you can check out Verde Pizza.
Their Neapolitan style, wood-fired pizza are made with the best and finest ingredients. They use a 150- year old cooking technique, which gives that authentic and distinct taste.

Are you in the mood for some heavy meals? Then go straight to Matthew’s Pizzeria, one of our personal favorites. You can never go wrong with this place. We ordered their Boneless Chicken Wings and Parmesan Sliders for appetizers, and we couldn’t stop eating.
As for their pizza, these are all thin crust where you can choose from different toppings. Our favorites are Fra Diavlo, Great White, and of course, the Matthew’s Frozen Pizza.
If you want to have lighter meals, they have the best Antipasto Salad. We suggest that you share it with a friend because the serving is good for two. The prices here are reasonable and the staff is always courteous.

Bop Brick Oven Pizza
When you ask the locals for the best pizza in Baltimore, most of them would say Bop Brick Oven Pizza. And we couldn’t agree more! Their Lucky 7 White Cheese, Greek, and Barbeque Chicken & Shrimp are just exceptional. It’s a waste if you do not try this pizza place when you visit Baltimore.
If you are not in the mood for pizza, you can always get their oversized wraps. The B.O.P Club will be your new favorite. It has turkey, salami, Canadian bacon, provolone, lettuce, tomato, and mayo. It’s a piece of heaven inside your mouth and with the number of ingredients, you will instantly feel full.

Apart from the fantastic pizzas, Pepe’s has a great breakfast menu. Go ahead and order one of their Breakfast Platters that are served with home fries, toast, & jelly. Their Egg on Bagel is also one of our favorites. We recommend this place before you tour around this beautiful city.
Seafood lovers will also enjoy the platters that are served with mashed potatoes or fries and coleslaw.
For those who crave salads, our best picks are Fresh Mozzarella & Tomato with Balsamic Viniagrette or their Turkey Breast Garden. And for the pizza, choose Meat Lover’s, Cheese Steak Pizza, and the Buffalo Chicken.
There’s always something for everyone at Pepe’s as they also serve pasta and sandwiches.

Harbor East Pizzeria
You can start your food quest with their amazing Chef Salad. And then you can go straight ahead to some of their most delicious pizzas. The Heart Attack is a great choice. But you can also try their White Za and Buffalo Chicken Pizza. Or if you want, you can create your own and go all out with the toppings.
We understand that some people are not pizza lovers (well, we don’t). So if that’s the case, there are burgers from Harbor East Pizzeria. Between their ½ lb hamburger and turkey burger, we would choose the latter. It has a unique taste that we can never find anywhere. Veggie burger is also available too.
Location: 1060 Aliceanna St. Baltimore
Joe Squared is known as one of the best pizzas in America, and we absolutely agree. This family-owned restaurant has been serving quality food for years and is always exceeding expectations. Their signature pizzas are to die for. In fact, we can never have enough of their Quatro Fromaggio, White, Supreme, and Chicken & Balsamic.
They also have a great selection of drinks that you can partner with your food. They have cocktails, beers, and wines. And yes, vegan and gluten-free options are available. It’s a place where everyone could enjoy amazing treats. You will leave their restaurant more than satisfied.

‘Ain’t Nothing a Pizza Can’t Fix.’ That’s what Angeli’s says and who are we to say no. We are guilty of ordering pizza every time we need to spend extra hours in the office. In fact, we couldn’t count how many boxes of pizzas we threw over the last month.
You can always order pizza by the slice and add toppings if you wish to. For those who want to have appetizers first, their Eggplant Angeli and Stolen Meatballs are too perfect! Get their New York-style pizza which is on point, and you should pair it with their house-marinated wings. Our list of favorites in this pizza place is just too long, we can even create another article just for that.
Location: 413 High St, Baltimore
If you want more than just good food and are eager to see some amazing art, then The Arthouse is the best place to go to. They showcase local artists which makes it an ideal place for tourists. You get to see Baltimore from a different perspective.
You should order their French Onion, The Fennel Countdown, and Spicy Blueberry & Brie. The Beet & Baby Kale salad is also phenomenal. Honestly, one serving isn’t enough. As for the desserts, we had Matcha Orange Curd Cannoli with dark chocolate shavings and a decent amount of roasted pistachios. We’re pretty sure you’d come back for more. We always recommend it to our friends and it did not disappoint.
Location: 1115 West 36th Street, Baltimore
You better get a slice of HomeSlyce pizzas because they are divine. Apart from their Classic, we love their Port-the-Bella, Strongman Meatlovers, and Chicken Pesto. Their sandwiches are worth it as well. The Grilled Mozzarella, Three Little Pigs, and Roasted Eggplant should be on top of your list. And if you want the meanest wings in town, they have Baked Jumbo Wings that could satisfy anyone’s cravings. We even ordered extra so we can bring it home for our movie marathon.
They also cater to huge events and you can reach out to them directly for special orders.
Location: HomeSlyce has multiple locations that you can find here.
If you want a wide menu to choose from, then you must check out Birroteca. For morning-people, we suggest that you get the Breakfast Sandy, Lemon Ricotta Pancakes, and the Salmon Benedict.
But of course, their pizzas are nothing short of perfection too. Otherwise, we would not include it in our Best Pizza in Baltimore list. You might want to taste their Duck Duck Goose, The PBBR, Spicy Fennel Sausage, and Mushroom 21.
They also offer gluten-free pasta if that is what you prefer.
Location: 1520 Clipper Rd, Baltimore
Get to have a fresh gourmet pizza in Baltimore from Zella’s Pizzeria. But before that, try out some of their best starters. We had the Feta Spinach Triangles, Herbed Bread Stix, and Eggplant Dip. We kid you not, these appetizers made us more excited for our pizza. You must also try their wings which are baked using olive oil and herbs.
Zella’s also has a good selection of pizzas and what we love the most are the St. Magnus’ Meat Classic, Sicilian, Spicy Chicken, and of course, their Special. They also have fast delivery, and that is why we usually order from this place whenever we have meetings or we need to work on some heavy tasks in the office.
