There’s no better way to celebrate National Pizza Month than with a fresh slice from one of these Boston hot spots. From classic Sicilian slices to gourmet pies with unique toppings, we’ve rounded up the best spots around the city for pizza.
Located in the Troy Boston luxury apartment building, Area Four is an award-winning pizza spot that’s a favorite amongst locals and visitors alike—even serving former President Obama when he was in town a few years back. Pizza options range from the classics such as margerita to the unique combination of Wellfleet clam and bacon. Stop by for a fresh slice and a fun atmosphere in this colorful and modern locale. 264 E Berkeley St., 857-317-4805
Putting an elevated twist on classic New England fare, this new American restaurant is serving up some serious competition in the pizza game. For something traditional, we suggest their fennel sausage pizza, which features caramelized onion and sage, but if you’re feeling adventurous, try one of their unique offerings such as their butternut squash and sage pizza or the leak and mushroom option, which features melted leek, Vermont goat cheese, wild mushrooms, and white truffle oil. 14 John F. Kennedy St., Cambridge, 617-500-3055
Owned by celebrity chefs Jamie Bissonnette and Ken Oringer, this charming spot brings the creativity to their gourmet pies. We suggest trying their nostrano pie, which features tomato, salami, Calabrian chili, and wild flower honey, or kick it up a notch with their fiore di zucchini, which is a white pizza with squash blossom, charred corn, chili oil, and majoram. And if you want to put your own personal twist on one of their creations, Coppa allows patrons to order additional pizza toppings such as ricotta, fried egg, prosciutto, and more. 254 Shawmut Ave., 617-391-0902
If you’re looking for the real deal when it comes to pizza, this classic North End spot is a must. Selling thick, cheesy Sicilian slices, Galleria Umberto stays open until they sell out, so be sure to get there early to beat the lines! And if your slice isn’t filling you up enough, try their arancini, panzarotti, or calzones. 289 Hanover St., 617-227-5709
Situated on the line of Back Bay and South End, this neighborhood spot puts an emphasis on charcuterie, which often ends up on their stone-grilled pizzas. Try one of the pies from their extensive menu such as the spilinga, which comes with nduja sausage, ricotta, shishito peppers, oregano, and parmesan, or go for their namesake pie, the Salty Pig, which features salty pig parts, mustard, pale ale caramel, and arugula. Whichever you choose, we can guarantee it will be delicious. 130 Dartmouth St., 617-536-6200
