Boston Has An Array Of Great New Pizzerias All Over The City
Whether you are walking Boston’s North End, Harvard Square in Cambridge, or Union Square in Somerville you are in the neighborhood of some great new pizza pots in the greater Boston area.
Let’s be honest, Massachusetts as a whole is not known for being one of the top states for outstanding pizza. Sure, we have legendary spots like Pizzeria Regina and Santarpio’s, but it’s fair to say the Bay State may have more poor-quality “pizza” places than great ones. So, there’s always room for more.
We love our Papa Gino’s and South Shore bar pie. That will always remain a constant and basically stands separately in categories of their own. Papa Gino’s for consistent, quintessential New England nostalgia, and bar pie for that unique blend distinctive flavor and atmosphere.
So let’s take a look at some of the new Pizza restaurants that have opened around Boston, that you will want to check out.
Located on Brattle Street in Harvard Square, Joe’s brings some New York City style to town. This iconic name in the pizza game dates back almost 50 years. The original owner is from Naples, Italy. Their recipes focus on mastering the basic ingredients of sweet tomato sauce, homemade dough, and fresh mozzarella cheese. Their traditional pies are on the thinner side, and they also serve Sicilian. You can walk into Joe’s and typically find cheese, pepperoni, or margarita pies being served fresh out of the oven.
Swing by 261 North Street and grab some O’Cheese Pizza. Boston.com called O’Cheese a place you must check out detailing how some of their specialty pies are themed after Boston sports. This includes “The Celtics (sausage, onion, and green peppers from $14.95) and The Patriots (shaved steak, onions, peppers, and mushrooms from $15.95).”
This is where you go for wood-fired pizza. The owners of Field & Vine recently opened June Bug. This is a casual, date-style establishment that specializes in a more neapolitan-style pizza. They are located at 251 Washington Street. There is certainly an artisan touch to the menu. Pizza options include the “Chimney Sweep,” which is topped with spinach, spazza di camino, and pine nut agrodolce.
