National Pizza Day is Tuesday, February 9th! Our real estate agents know that you don't need an excuse to dive into a cheesy slice of pizza, but National Pizza Day is a great reason to get adventurous and try a new pizza parlor around town. If you love a classic New York-style slice, consider chowing down on a Chicago deep dish. If you've never ordered pineapple or anchovies on one of America's favorite foods, National Pizza Day is the perfect time to give it a try. Even if you want the classic combo of crust, cheese, and tomato sauce, these pizza shops around Chattanooga won't disappoint.
1. Gondolier Pizzeria & Italian Restaurant - 6901 Lee Hwy #124, Chattanooga, TN 37421
For almost 40 years, Gondolier has been a staple of the Chattanooga pizza scene, pumping out pies and other Mediterranean specialties. They pride themselves on offering more than 50 different Italian and Greek menu items to ensure every mouth is left satisfied. Order up one of twenty different personal pan pizzas to eat on the go. You could order a calzone or a Stromboli as well, but be prepared to answer the age-old question, are calzones and Strombolis technically pizzas or separate dishes?
2. Lupi's Pizza Pies - 5504 Hixson Pike, Hixson, TN 37343
They might not have been the original pizza shop in Chattanooga, but Lupi's Pizza Pies was the first in town to serve authentic hand-tossed pizza. They make their dough and sauces each day from scratch and chop up over 30 different types of veggies to give you limitless options. If you're driving around visiting Hixson homes for sale on National Pizza Day, be sure to visit their location on the northeast side of town.
3. Mr. T's Pizza and Ice Cream - 3924 Tennessee Ave., Chattanooga, TN 37409
There's no mystery why Mr. T's Pizza and Ice Cream is so popular. They go the extra mile to shred their own cheese, mix their own sauces and roll their own dough to deliver the freshest pizza in Chattanooga. While it's hard to top their specialty pies, an order of cinnamon sticks or ice cream will make you wonder why you haven't been ordering dessert with every pizza you eat.
4. Pizzeria Cortile - 4400 Dayton Blvd., Chattanooga, TN 37415
All pizzas are delicious, but there's just something about a woodfired pizza that really makes our day.
