Cravings: Pizza.

Cravings: Pizza.

Sometimes you just get a craving for Pizza. I mean really good pizza when delivery just want do. Here are a few of my favorites around Atlanta.

Antico Pizza.

Chilling on the Westside, and within walking distance of Georgia Tech lies home to an Atlantan- Italian Institution. Creator Giovanni di Palma defiantly knew what the city was missing when he built that tiny pizzeria. Antico is always packed, pizza is served until dough is out, and seating is communal. While you’re there, take a stroll around “Little Italia”, and visit all of di Palma’s ristoranti.

Nancy Chicago Pizza.

I’ve only had it once, but I am a huge fan of Chicago deep dish pizza. At first, I didn’t understand the point of eating a cake slice worth of tomato sauce and cheese; however, my experience while in Chicago quickly converted me over. Of course, I cannot fly up to Chitown every time I get a craving (not yet at least). A good substitution locally is Nancy Original Chicago Pizza. Not only is it a Windy City original, but its also said to be the inventors of the Chicago Deep Dish period (circa 1971).

Painted Pin.

Adult Bowl can’t really be considered “grown” unless there are great cocktails, AND yummy food involved. Hot dogs, pre made burgers, and french fries are cool; keeps you from being hungry nontheless, but if I had a choice I’d pass. I’m not much of a bowler myself (to my husband’s dismay), but I am much more inclined to revel in my time being average at the game when I have food to keep me company (true for all situations really). Painted Pin has easily become our go-to spot for a night out with friends. Besides bowling, you’ll find numerous other games such as Bocce and Skee ball, Jenga, shuffle board, and there’s live music.

Fellini’s Pizza.

There are tones of new restaurant concepts popping up around Atlanta, seems like every month. Equal to that there are just as many closing. Fellini’s; however, would be the perfect example of an “oldie but goodie”. Around since the early 80’s, I remember this being one of the first places I was introduced to when moving to Atlanta for college in 2008. As much as I love bread, I have always been partial to a thinner crust pizza. One in which I can see and taste the char markings on the bottom of the dough left by the brick over. Customizable is always nice as well; 3 toppings max for me, sprinkled with red pepper flakes. Plus, you can’t beat the $2-$3 per slice!
