The Best Pizza in Massachusetts








The Pizza Guy ebaybobby "...Absolutely the best pizza
in Western Mass. Great brick oven pizza. Thinner crust which is unheard of in these parts. The pizza comes out looking like old school Italy. Great tasting nutty crust,unbelievable fresh sauce and just the right amount of cheese and toppings. Family run with the BEST personalities around!!! Tiny tiny little place but that is whatadds to the nostalgic atmosphere. My favorite special pizza is their white. WOW!"
Massachusetts Amherst


Kevin McKay /

"Gourmet pizza, reasonable price. Prompt service!" /

"The atmosphere is great and the pizza is absolutely delicious. My favorite is Chicken Bacon Ranch and no one anywhere makes it as good as them and their prices are outrageously low. If you're a college student at UMASS or just passing through you have to eat here!!!!! I live here luckily so I can enjoy it all year round!"

Massachusetts Belmont Stone Hearth Pizza


"The Margherita pizza has a perfect thin crisp crust, top
quality fresh mozzarella, and a delicious uncooked tomato  sauce. The proportions of sauce, crust, and cheese is just  right. FINALLY, a Boston area pizza that rivals New Haven and New York!"

Bostone Pizza

225 Newbury Street
Boston, MA 02116

Bostone Pizza from Pizza Therapy

Ms. Pizza

"Amidst all of the many pizza joints in the city, Bostone Pizza gets a little lost in the shuffle.  This is unfortunate because this Newbury Street pizza shop produces a delicious Sicilian slice.  Strolling up the famous Newbury Street can be hard work.  Reward yourself with a slice of fresh, Sicilian style pizza from Bostone."


Massachusetts Boston Campo Di Fiori

Pizza: A Slice of Heaven!

The crust is “crisp on the outside, tender on the inside…puffy and chewy.”  "
Massachusetts Boston Ernesto's

69 Salem Street,

jena  /





Ms. Pizza





"The entire package is amazing.  Great crust, awesome
combination of toppings, just the perfect amount of cheese and
sauce. Their slices are GIGANTIC!!! My husband and I would walk
10 miles for this pizza..."   /

"Ernesto’s is truly a hidden gem in every sense of the word.  It can be difficult to find by tourists, who are often directed towards the famous Pizzeria Regina’s just a few blocks away. 

 My recommendation to anyone in the North End seeking out a good slice: grab one from both restaurants.  , I can PROMISE that although you can’t go wrong with Regina’s, Ernesto’s is the better pizza. Don’t let the small store front fool you.  What Ernesto’s lacks in vibrant décor or street appeal it absolutely makes up for in taste."

"If one can not make it to Pepe's in New Haven, CT , the ORIGINAL Regina's
in the North End of Boston is just a tad under Pepe's." /
Everything from the glass coke bottles to the original pizza ovens and the thin-cheesey-oil-basted- goodness !!! It's a Boston tradition- everything authentic! "it's wicked good" :)
Massachusetts Boston

Upper Crust

20 Charles Street Beacon Hill
 Boston, MA 02114

Ms. Pizza

"Upper Crust Pizza, which is a local and growing chain of about 20 pizza shops, serves up gourmet thin crust pizza in Boston and in surrounding neighborhoods.  Diners can expect a consistent pizza from one shop to the next. 

 The pizzas are thin, and the toppings are all fresh.  I enjoy this chain because it is NOT AT ALL a greasy bite, and has the right balance of cheese and sauce.  Oftentimes I find that pizza joints load the pizza with cheese, which overpowers the crust, sauce, and other toppings.  Upper Crust is careful to cover each pizza perfectly and should ABSOLUTELY be checked out if you are in the Boston area."

Massachusetts Brookline Angelina's Pizzeria

Angelina's Pizzeria and Subs from Pizza Therapy

Ms. Pizza

See the Ms. Pizza Interview on

"Braintree is not far from Boston.  Because of this, residents may feel inclined to hop in their cars or board the beloved ‘T’ to head into town for dinner.  Although a night out in the big city is fun every once and again, NOTHING beats a cozy night at home with a glass (or two) of vino and the PERFECT PIZZA.  I cannot stress enough that Angelina’s Pizzeria on Elm Street in Braintree delivers (in terms of the pizza itself and also by car)!

You can expect a thin crust pie with fresh ingredients and, most importantly, a delectable crust.  As any good pizza lover knows, the crust is the most important and I can say with confidence that Angelina’s has figured out their crust.  Its thin, its light, its airy, and it soaks up the sauce, cheese and flavors better than any surrounding pizza restaurant or shop. Don’t wait! Run over to Angelina’s today!"

Massachusetts Brookline Upper Crust Pizza


"This place very close to a Pepe's pizza. It's oven cook, thin pizza, and a finely cooked crust.  It's very nice. They also have a few locations in Boston."
Massachusetts  Chelsea New Brown Jug



"I have done exhaustive research into the best pizza places in and around Boston, and this place is tops.  A great cheese blend, perfect thin and crisp crust, and a sweetand tangy sauce. So good."
Massachusetts  Danvers Little Italy


"... They make a medium-thick pie and lay down rectangles of mozzarella on top only. The sauce is delicious and they cook it just enough to get it to meld in right with the cheese. Excellent."
Massachusetts Dracut Tony and Ann's


"One of a kind family recipe since 1953."
Massachusetts East Boston

Santarpio's from

Ms. Pizza

"It's the first right when you come out of the tunnel heading to Logan.
 Get the Sausage."  /

"Want a hall of fame pizza? Check out Santarpio’s in either East Boston or the newer location in Peabody, MA. 

 This family owned pizza shop has been around since 1903 and therefore has over 100 years of practice making the perfect pizza.  Stylistically, you can expect a NY style pizza, an array of toppings, and consistency from one visit to the next."  /

Massachusetts East Hampton  Pizza House


"The sauce is like no other.We always get a pizza house pizza when we visit Mass.We live 4 hoursaway."
Massachusetts Fitchburg Marchetti's


"The Marchetti's "Original crust" is what makes it the best."
Massachusetts Fitchburg Royal Plaza, Marriott


"The sauce and the crust is awesome!"
Massachusetts Georgetown Steve's


This is the best example of the thin crust Greek style of pizza that is popular on the North Shore. Formerly "Town Pizza Place", Steve's is now a full service family restaurant but pizza remains their specialty
Massachusetts Grafton Anzio's Brick Oven Pizza

135 Westboro Road (Rt 30)
North Grafton, MA 01536

Anzio's Brick Oven Pizza

Albert Grande,
The Pizza Promoter

From Anzio's:

"Anzio’s Brick Oven Pizza provides unmatched authentic Neo-Neapolitan pizza to our customers in Grafton, MA by using only the freshest ingredients and cooking with a traditional Italian brick oven.

The 700 degree temperature produces a thin crust that is the perfect combination of slightly chewy, and crispy light and airy."

Massachusetts Great Barrington Baba Louie's


"Wood fired oven, Richard Bourdon natural sourdough crust!!"
Massachusetts Ipswich The Riverview

20 Estes St
Ipswich, MA 01938

The Riverview from Pizza Therapy


"Great thin crust pizza. Simply old school pizza done right. One size
only; it is perfect for someone with a good appetite, but we have been known to order extra since the prices are very fair."
Massachusetts Lawrence
Tripoli Pizza

106 Common Street
Lawrence, MA 01840

Tripoli Pizza and Bakery from Pizza Therapy


"What makes this pizza so special is everything about it. The sauce is sweet and the crust is cooked perfectly. All ingredients are made every day so each slice is
always fresh.

I used to work there, so I am familiar with how much is put into making this pizza taste so good. Only 3 toppings offered. Cheese, Extra cheese and
pepperoni. I only get the cheese. I think the fact that they don't have to deliver and have been in business for many decades speaks for itself. "

Massachusetts Lowell Suppa's Pizza


"This pizza rocks!!!! Perfect thin to medium inner crust and nice thick outer crust. Great blend of cheeses and the perfect sauce. And they are BIG!!!!"
Massachusetts Lynn Monte's


"I love Pepe's in New Haven and Regina in Boston but Monte's on Eastern Ave in Lynn has a pizza that is unlike others.  It is a 10-12 inch pizza, carcker thin with sweet sauce and an awesome blend of cheeses.  The sausage pizza is to die for!  Looks like a dive but great family restaurant..."
Massachusetts Millis


Marinho’s Pizzeria

984 Main Street,
Millis, MA 02054


Ms. Pizza

"Marinho’s Pizzeria, situated conveniently on Main Street in Millis, MA is the unsung hero of suburban pizza joints. The pizza is thin, it is large, and it is more than satisfying. 

The owner is often there making each pizza himself, although his staff is more than capable of keeping the pizzas coming!  His shop is worthy of a downtown real estate plot based on how consistently delicious it is.  If you’re feeling hungry, feeding a soccer team, or plan on huddling up in your house for three days during a blizzard, go for jumbo size.  No regrets."
Massachusetts Nantucket Pi Pizza

11 West Creek Road 
 Nantucket, MA 02554
(508) 228-1130


"Thin crust, with a terrific chewy crust and nice sauce…"

From their website: "Pi Pizzeria was started with the intention of preserving old, classic Neapolitan recipes while imparting our own twist to make it authentically “Pi Pizza.” In Naples, every pizzeria is slightly different – each adding its own flourish of tradition and personality. So is the case with Pi Pizzeria, making it authentically Italian."

Massachusetts Quincy Alumni Cafe


"Eat it there and it's great. Get it to go and it loses something. I've had pizza from different places all over the USA. This is one of the best. They don't spare the cheese or the toppings! Friday nights it's the best, don't know why."

"The sauce is to die for, and the crust is thin and crisp.  The
best in Eastern Mass. by far - better than anywhere in Boston's
North End."
Massachusetts Southwick Roma's

eric t

"The crust is incredible...thick; something to really hold onto and not worry
about ripping. The sauce is incredible; chunks of tomatoes and it stains a
shirt really well! The service is impeccable, but with a family-run business,
it's expected...."
Massachusetts Springfield Leone's Restaurant


"Everything about this pizza is phenomenal! From the texture to the melt in your
mouth homemade white sauce, fresh spinach, tomatoes and grilled lemon pepper chicken
the chicken Florentine is by far the best pizza I have ever had in my life. Good
enough to spend my time online and rave about it!
Massachusetts Springfield Red Rose Pizza


"Everything is perfect. You can watch the dough being made
behind glass walls continuously.  All the ingredients are the best." /
"This place has the perfect pizza. The crust is always golden brown, lots of yummy cheese. This place has been around a long time for a reason."
Massachusetts Stoughton Town Spa

Emcee /

"...survivor of dying tradition of Henry the Pizza Maker, whose odd, oily thin style (cheddar but it's good!) pervaded Brockton, Mass.-area mainstays such as Cape Cod Cafe, Blue Moon and Tip Top Cafe." /
"..Town Spa is the best....
I say that now after 40 years traveling around the world ...I knew it was good then but never knew just how good! Whenever I get back east I always drop by to say hello and enjoy a great tasting cheese Pizza."

Every pizza lover feels the best pizza is made best in their own home town. Even The Pizza Therapy Pizza Blog talks about the Best Pizza in Boston.  West Coast pizza fans are very loyal to their pizza. Mid-west pizza fans are loyal to their own pizza.
