Federal Taphouse

201 N. Queen Street, Lancaster, PA 17603 | FederalTaphouseLanc.com
Ally says “I love the pizza at Federal Taphouse – they use a wood-fire oven so the crust is nice and crispy. Their toppings range from traditional to seasonal and unique, like drunken figs and sweet corn. As an added bonus, the Fed has around a 100 beers on tap to pair with your pie.”

Pie to try: 3 Little Pigs – red sauce, house pork belly, house ham, pepperoni, mozzarella, provolone

Norma’s Pizza at Roots Country Market

705 Graystone Rd, Manheim, PA 17545 | Facebook.com/NormasPizzaAtRootsCountryMarketAndAuction
Nate says “My family loves Norma’s pizza, done to perfection in either boardwalk or Detroit styles. Pro-tip – since she’s only open on Tuesday’s when Root’s Market is open and she sells out nearly every Tuesday, get there early or place your order ahead of time to ensure that you get a slice!”

Norma is the 2016 USA Caputo Cup New York Style Pizza Champion, beating out pies from Chicago, New York, Las Vegas and beyond!

Pie to try: Sicilian style pizza with pepperoni

Luca

436 W. James Street, Lancaster, PA 17603 | LucaLancaster.com
Liz says “I love the unique combos that you can find a Luca!”

Andrew says “Luca’s pizza is out of this world. The pizza is baked in a Neapolitan wood-burning oven, and you can taste the love and care they put into each pie.”

Luca recently appeared in the New York Times, who raved about their wood-fire appetizers, artisan cocktails, and handmade pasta that are featured alongside their tasty pizza.

Pie to try: Piccante – crushed tomato, hot soppressata, mozzarella, pecorino, shaved garlic, hot honey

DiMaria’s Pizza

1183 Erbs Quarry Road, Lititz, PA 17543 | DimariasLititz.com
Katie says “I love Grandma Pizza from DiMaria’s in Lititz. It requires extra wait time when you order it, but it’s so worth it!”

Pie to try: Grandma Pizza – thin square pizza with chunk tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, basil pesto, garlic & olive oil

Steel Peel

611 Harrisburg Avenue, Lancaster, PA 17603 | Steelpeelpizza.com
Sean says “Steel Peel’s specialty pizzas – like the Quattro Gusti pizza – are truly special. The combination of toppings make for a flavorful pizza.”

Pie to try: Chesapeake Chicken – chicken steak, bacon, bruschetta tomatoes, old bay, ranch, cheddar & mozzarella with pizza sauce

Thom’s Bread

Lancaster Central Market or 113 Butler Ave, Lancaster, PA 17601 | Thomsbread.com
Tisha says “My favorite right now is Thom’s tomato pie from Thom’s Bread. It can be bought at Lancaster Central Market or their bakery location off of Oregon Pike.”

Pie to try: Tomato Pie – house made crust, tomato sauce

Espino’s Pizza

323 W. Lemon Street, Lancaster, PA 17603 | Espinospizza.com
Lauren says “Espino’s pizza is delicious – the crust is crispy on the bottom, yet fluffy. He also has Latin items on the menu if you aren’t in the mood for pizza.”

Pie to try: Veggie Pizza – peppers, onions, mushrooms, olives

Parma Pizza

301 W Main St, Landisville, PA 17538 | Parmapizzaandgrill.com
Nicole says “It’s hard to pick just one! Our favorite local spot is Parma Pizza. We especially like the Holiday pizza which has spinach, broccoli, tomato, and ricotta- yum.”

Pie to try: Holiday Special – white pizza with fresh garlic, olive oil, tomatoes, broccoli, spinach, ricotta, mozzarella cheese

Carr’s Restaurant

50 West Grant St, Lancaster, PA 17603 | Carrsrestaurant.com
Sarah says “Carr’s dough is soft, not too overdone, making the crusts a warm, delicious breadstick of sorts. The sauce is light and sweet. These pizzas make a great lunch on their own, or appetizer with friends.”

Pie to try: White pizza with garlic and sweet basil or their Pizza of the Day

DiCarlo’s

155 E King St, Lancaster, PA 17602 | Dicarlospizzalanc.com
Matt says “DiCarlo’s pizza is unique and super tasty. Rather than cooking the pizza with cheese on it, they add grated cheese to the sauce and crust AFTER it comes out of the oven.”

Pie to try: the original – it’s unique enough you won’t need toppings (although you can get pepperoni, sausage, mushrooms, hot peppers or black olives if you’d like)
