You will love the wide selection of pizza flavors they have on the menu. Prosciutto is our favorite. The perfect blend of arugula, ricotta, olive oil, onion, and white balsamic reduction is truly something to die for. Check out their Pepperoni and Four Cheese too. They are really good.

Other fascinating options you may want to explore are the Classico, Flying Pig, Eliott Smith, and Rhode Island. All of these are super delicious. If you are feeling a bit creative, choose your own crust and toppings and build your pie from scratch.

You haven’t had pizza in Columbus yet if you haven’t tried the Spicy Yuma from the famous Harvest Pizzeria. This magnificent pie boasts a generous topping of chorizo, corn, jalapeno, Gouda/Havarti blend, cilantro, provolone/mozzarella blend, and roasted red pepper.
All the ingredients used to make pizzas are obtained from local farms, which ensures the pies are fresh. The crust is always crispy; never soggy. The sauce comes with lots of spices and fresh herbs, and the cheese is applied in a ratio that matches the amount of toppings.
As with Yellow Brick, you can get extremely creative with your pies at Harvest Pizzeria. Pick a truffled mushroom or chipotle spiked tomato base as a topping. You can visit the restaurant any time between 4:00 pm and 9:00 pm.
1618 Neil Ave Columbus, OH 43201
Tel: (614) 421-2300
Adriatico’s is known for its delicious New York style pizza and has been buzzing with activity for more than forty years now. The crust is baked to perfection and the toppings are utterly tasty. The sauce is just how you would like pizza sauce to be; a little tangy and a little sweet.
What we love the most about this spot is that you get to choose how thick you want your crust to be. You can get extra thin, regular, or the thick Sicilian.
You can choose any dressing you please but if you like a pizza with lots of toppings, consider the Inflation Fighter; it features ham, pepperoni, sausage, beef, black olives, green olives, mushrooms, onions, and peppers. And the best part? You will get all nine items for the price of five.
This pizzeria opens at 11:00 am and doesn’t close until 1:30 am, which makes it perfect for late-night orders.
1369 Grandview Ave Columbus, OH 43212
Tel: (614) 481-8850
Figlio attracts masses with their woodfired pizzas that are baked from the traditional dough and flavorful ingredients. This is a great place for people who love chewy pies. Their pizzas are perfectly rubbery with just the right amount of dressing.
Don’t know what to order? Get the Figlio Classic. It has pepperoni, mushrooms, banana peppers, onions, green peppers, and tomato sauce. If you love seafood, try the Kung Pao Shrimp or Ahi Tuna Flatbread. The pizzeria is open from 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm, offering takeout and delivery services.
2657 N High St Columbus, OH 43202
Tel: (614) 261-4686
Located near the Ohio State campus, Hounddog’s serves the locals with an extensive menu of Italian dishes, sandwiches, and wickedly delicious pizzas. You can have your pie made with the house-made thin crust or hand-tossed garlic crust.
The sauce here ranges from mild to extremely hot and they give you an option to replace the pesto base with marinara. Pizza options are phenomenal but you can always have your pie custom-made.
If you are looking for something to reduce a hangover, get the Bacon Cheeseburger Pizza. It consists of onions, ground beef, bacon, tomatoes, and a generous layer of cheddar cheese. Place your order between 4:00 pm and 10:00 pm for dine-in, carryout, or delivery.
7. Borgata Pizza Café
5701 Parkville St Columbus, OH 43229
Tel: (614) 891-2345
Borgata may not be as huge as some of the pizzerias listed here but it sure does deliver some of the most unforgettable pies in the city. Most people come here for the special New York style pizza that is served both as a whole and by the slice.
Although you will be mesmerized by other pizza options sold here like the Meat Combo, Pesto Chicken, Mediterranean Roasted Chicken, and the Supreme, try building your own pizza to really make it your own. Choose a thin, medium, or thick crust and dress it with your favorite toppings.
The restaurant opens from 4:00 pm to 10:00 pm Monday to Thursday and as early as 11:00 am on Friday and Saturday. It remains closed on Sunday.
615 N High St Columbus, OH 43215
Tel: (614) 223-2100
Open between 4:00 pm and 9:00 pm, Marcella’s has been serving traditional Italian pizzas for generations and is a great place to stop by next time you crave pizza. They style their pies like a flatbread, which makes them look more appealing (good for the gram!)
Don’t be afraid to try the many pizza options they have on the menu. You will, especially, love the Sicilian that comes topped with a flavorful layer of salami, asiago, capicola, meatballs, and red onion. The crispy prosciutto on Chicken Florentine is also something to die for.
And for veggie lovers, the zucchini, tomato, olives, mushrooms, and mascarpone on the veggie pizza will not disappoint. Place your order for delivery, curbside pickup, or takeout, or just stay and eat in.
9. Mickey’s Late Night Slice
1030 N High St Columbus, OH 43201
Tel: (614) 737-3488
Forget Adriatico’s; Mickey’s is the perfect late-night destination, with the restaurant staying open until 3:00 am ( and 4:00 am on Saturdays). This eatery started as a tiny pizzeria and is now one of the most popular pizza joints in Columbia, with multiple restaurants across the city.
They keep things simple by selling pizzas by the slice so you can have a taste of the many delectable recipes they have. But you can also get the pies in whole if you want; they are big enough to split with friends.
Even if you are a fan of thin crusts, you will fall in love with the thicker crusts sold here; they are crunchy and scrumptious. Try the one with sausage, mushroom, and extra strength pepperoni. Yum!
10. Oh Pizza & Brew
88 E Broad St, Columbus, OH 43215
Tel: (614) 940-8687
Another joint that will hook you up with a pizza in the wee hours of the night is the Oh Pizza & Brew. Customers start streaming in as early as 11:00 am and don’t stop until 2:00 am.
You will really love the thin pizza crust. It is quite flavorful and comes with loads of toppings. The sauce has a lot of flavor too. You can even get their awesomely delicious garlic sauce on the side for crust dipping.
Spicy Ezzo Pizza and Kaua’i Pizza are some of our favorites. The Ezzo old world pepperoni in the Spicy Ezzo is particularly amazing. But don’t come here just for the pizza; try their decorated tots and wings too. Have your order delivered to you or just head out for carryout or dining-in.
11. Villa Nova Ristorante
5545 N High St Columbus, OH 43214
Tel: (614) 846-5777
Don’t drive outside Villa Nova Ristorante without taking a few minutes to try their pepperoni pizza. They serve it very hot with a crunchy crust and a mountain of toppings; just how you would expect a good pizza to be. Get a cheese pizza too; it is one of the best in town.
The restaurant is small and intimate and all meals come at a very reasonable price. The only downside? It can be very crowded at times and orders may take a little longer to process. But honestly, what you get in the end is totally worth the wait.
Order online any time between 11:00 am and 11:00 pm and pick the order at the curbside or have it delivered to you.
1327 W 5th Ave Columbus, OH 43212
Tel: (614) 487-8282
Dewey’s is a successful pizzeria, with a chain of restaurants spanning across Ohio and Kansas. Their extensive pizza options and favorable prices are the major reasons crowds flock here.
Edgar Allen Poe is everyone’s favorite. It is topped with fontina, mozzarella, goat cheese, kalamata leaves, roasted garlic, and served with tomatoes and parsley. Porky Fig, Bronx Bomber, and Don Corleone are other fun varieties people love to explore.

40 N High St Columbus, OH 43215
Tel: (614) 224-3013
Café Napolitana is not the fanciest pizza joint in Columbia but it serves really good pizza. Plus the personal note they leave inside the pizza box gives it such a homely touch.
All pizza ingredients are fresh and made from scratch and the pizza itself comes piping hot. Get their specialty pizza like the Supreme or Buffalo Chicken or just pick your own toppings and have them make a pizza customized to your liking.
Visit the restaurant for branch from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm or for dinner from 4:00 pm to 10:00 pm. You could also order as takeout or have the pizza delivered to you.

2643 E Main St Columbus, OH 43209
Tel: (614) 235-0712
Rubino’s is known for its unique, old-school Columbus style pizza that has graced dinner tables for years. They make their dough from scratch and run it through a mechanical roller to produce that cracker-thin crust that everyone loves.
Try the one with pepperoni: you will love the thick sauce that covers the pizza edge to edge. Their vegetarian option is also pretty incredible if you are into that kind of thing. Come here any time from 4:00 pm to 9:00 pm.
