The Best Pizza Restaurants In Indianapolis, Indiana

Anna T. Wilson

Pizza is simply delicious. Something that makes it even better is pizza that it is made by chefs with years of experience and a passion for creating the best food they are capable of making. Indianapolis has never shied away from being different and starting trends, so when pizza restaurants gained popularity over 20 years ago, they set the pace for future pizza shops and their momentum never slowed. Read below for our top picks in Indiana‘s capital.

1. Some Guys Pizza Pasta Grill

Some Guys Pizza Pasta Grill

Try handmade, fresh and perfectly seasoned pizza at Some Guys Pizza Pasta Grill. They make their dough fresh everyday with the best flours and honey, and their sauce is made with sweet California roma tomatoes; this makes for strong and delicious pizza. Enjoy these handcrafted delights in the form of their ten-inch wood-fired pizzas, such as the hose artichoke, Mediterranean, and margherita. Customers can even build their own ideal pizza with over 30 toppings to choose from.

2. Jokamo Upper Crust Pizza

Jokamo Upper Crust Pizza

Jokamo Upper Crust Pizza has perfected the art of ridiculously delicious hangover pizzas with their Denver pizza that has house made chorizo sausage gravy, scrambled eggs, ham, red onions, green peppers, and cheddar cheese. If you think those are as incredible as they sound, then be prepared for their special seafood pizza called the Creole. It features your choice of crawfish, shrimp, or smoked cajun sausage, with green peppers, tomatoes, and a cheesy étouffée sauce from Papa Roux. If these do not sound appetizing, customers can build their own pizza with choices from 10 different sauces and 50 different toppings.

3. Magoo’s California Pizza

Magoo’s California Pizza

California-style pizza officially meets Indiana through Magoo’s California Pizza and their high quality, simple pizzas. Their specialty pizzas include the chicken tikka pizza, which is topped with green peppers, tomatoes, onions, and chicken tikka. The chappli kabab pizza is another specialty and it is topped with kabab, green peppers, onions, and tomatoes; this filling pizza, as well as the others, is even more tasty when paired with their special creamy garlic sauce. So, do not hesitate to stop through and get a little slice of California here.

4. WB Pizza

Restaurant, Pizzeria, Italian, Fast Food, Vegetarian, Vegan

Trustworthy pizza awaits guests as they sit down to order from WB Pizza. The chef, Will Barnes, has over 30 years of culinary experience and this is reflected through the press they receive about their service and unique qualities of their pizzas. They were named The Best of Indy by Indianapolis Dine from surveying over 50 pizza critics. Nuvo has also called WB Pizza ‘the kind of locally owned restaurant that ought to become an institution.’ There is no doubting that these praises are true, but to form your own opinion, try their specialties, like the grant or the palmero – a deep dish delight with mild Italian sausage, portobello mushrooms, sundried tomatoes, and fresh shredded parmesan cheese.

Bazbeaux Pizza

Bazbeaux is a name that may register with historians, particularly with those interested in the jesters of court. This name can be traced back to the French King Louis XI as the name he gave his court jester. Bazbeaux Pizza hopes to continue the originality and whimsical spirit of the old jester through the seemingly endless options of 10, 12, and 16-inch pizzas. Each pizza is made with a special blend of cheeses that include provolone, mozzarella, and pecorino romano; each pizza is doused with their homemade tomato sauce and served on white or wheat crust at your request.
