One time, I had the bright idea to celebrate National Pizza Day by making a pizza at home, from scratch. Let’s just say it was all fun and games until the pizza didn’t turn out as planned…overbaked in some areas, undercooked in others. This didn’t satisfy my craving for a warm, cheesy pizza on a thick, crunchy crust – with breadsticks on the side, of course.
So take my advice and leave it to the experts and dine-in or carry-out a pipin’ hot pizza pie. We worked with Yelp Indy to find the top places to order a pizza in Hamilton County. Happy eating!
Methodology: This is an all-time list of the top ten restaurants with pizza in Hamilton County, according to Yelp. We identified businesses in the restaurant category that mentioned pizza in reviews and are not part of a national chain, then ranked those spots using a number of factors including the total volume and ratings of reviews. This list was updated in January 2021.
11640 Brooks School Road, Fishers
“Guys, this place is the real deal. If you are looking for REAL, authentic Italian pizza, look no further! They only use the highest quality of fresh ingredients. We had the pizza 4 Formaggio (4 cheese) and pizza Montanari (ricotta cheese, home-made sausage, and mushroom). Both were absolutely perfect and delicious.” – Yelper Ka’Lena J.
10 W. Jackson Street, Cicero
"10 West is a gem in the rough....The food is great quality, atmosphere is inviting, and the staff is attentive/friendly. I would recommend the pretzel breadsticks with the outstanding queso dip and the Caribbean Flatbread Pizza. Don't miss out on an outstanding experience by passing on a dinner at 10 West." - Yelper Brice S.
230 W. Jackson Street, Cicero
"DeLullo's Margharite pizza has become our go-to local pizza when the pizza-bug hits. Enjoy the small, intimate setting of DeLullos and the fresh ingredients. Great place to take visitors for something a little different than the chains at a reasonable price." - Yelper Steve B.
11501 Allisonville Road, Fishers
“Best pizza and salads in Fishers! When my dad says this pizza is the best he's had, THAT'S SAYIN' SOMETHIN'! My dad is a pizza enthusiast and has had more than his fair share of pizza around the Hoosier state.” -Yelper Kristine H.
20813 Hague Road, Noblesville
“With pizza places, you usually have two options: cheap chain pizza or expensive, sit-down local restaurants. This place is a gem - it's a takeout place with reasonable prices, tasty sauce & crust, and an exceedingly friendly staff.” -Yelper David S.
13190 Hazel Dell Parkway, Carmel
“Okay, as stingy as I am with the five-star reviews this place deserves one hands down for several reasons. The pizza is a fresh warm melt in your mouth amazing thin-crust artesian pizza. I went for the Margherita with crushed San Marzano tomatoes, our hand-stretched mozzarella, and fresh local basil. I opened the box and the smell was intoxicating.” -Yelper Stacey C.
111 W. Main Street, Carmel
“Bazbeaux is one of my favorite places to dine. It's a must every time we're in Carmel. The atmosphere is cozy, the staff friendly, the food is always delicious, and the service is fast. The great thing about Bazbeaux is that you cannot go wrong with any option on the menu.” -Yelper Julianne S.
1732 E. 116th Street, Carmel
“As a Chicago transplant, finding good pizza in Indy was a challenge. That being said, Greek Tony's has the best pizza in town.” – Yelper John K.
9. Some Guys Pizza Pasta Grill
12552 Gray Road, Carmel
"My family and I have been coming here for nearly 20 years now. I haven't been living in the area and ordered Some Guys for the first time in about 5 years this evening. Nothing has changed - hands down one of the best pizza joints I've been to (a long list)...the Antipasto is top-tier." - Yelper Brady M.
13901 Town Center Boulevard, Noblesville
“I live in Columbus, OH and am frequently in Indy for business. I found Bella Pizza when searching for delivery in Noblesville and my life hasn't been the same since. The pain and stress of my often weekly travel for work has been lightened by the White Pizza. I would seriously make the 6 hour round trip drive just for a slice.” -Yelper Julie T.
