Five Instagram-Worthy Pizza Joints in Georgia

  • These Pizzas Are Almost Too Pretty To Eat. ALMOST.

    Deano's Italian

    Gateway Macon

Pizza may have been invented in Italy, but these Georgia pizzerias have perfected the art of making pizza pie. Whether you like deep dish, traditional or thin crust, red sauce, white sauce or chocolate sauce on your pizzas, you’ll love these five pizza joints in Georgia. 

Vinnie Van Go Go’s, Savannah

Although Vinnie Van Go Go’s is small in stature, their Neapolitan-style pizzas of thin, hearty crusts topped with a rich tomato sauce and fresh mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses, deliver big taste.  . .literally! You can have yours topped with “Yuppie” toppings like broccoli, spinach or artichoke hearts and delivered by bicycle (in downtown Savannah), or sit on the patio and people watch in City Market. Bring cash because that’s all they take.


This pizza has greater potential than I do (thx Hans)

Shorty’s Pizza, North Druid Hills.

A wood-fired oven gives Shorty’s pizza a smoky flavor that enhances the fresh ingredients they use to top all of their pizzas. You can build your own pie or go for one of their musically inspired pizzas like the “BB King,” made with BBQ Pork Tenderloin, Goat Cheese, Cilantro and “CZR” Salad on Top. BTW, pizzas are $5 off on Tuesdays at their North Druid Hills location and on Wednesdays at their Tucker location.


Sal’s Neighborhood Pizzeria, St. Simons Island.

Sal has brought his Italian-style pizza (via New York City) to seafood-driven St. Simons Island where it has become a fan favorite. Rich, zesty sauce and wood-fired crust are two of the key ingredients that give Sal’s that famous New York City taste. You can have your choice of toppings, and don’t be shy about ordering an entrée to go with it. Their Chicken Picatta and Eggplant Parmigiana are both delicious choices — as is everything on their menu.

Bambinelli’s Pizza & Pasta, Duluth

This is my ALL time favorite place to take the family for a delicious (and affordable) meal of baked gnocchi, garlic mussels, and AMAZING pizza. Their “Bambinelli’s Special” pizza is authentic Italian-style pizza, meaning a thin crisp crust, a smear of fresh tomato sauce, spicy pepperoni and sausage, and fresh peppers, onions and mushrooms. Don’t be tempted to fill up on their buttery garlic rolls, but definitely pack some to go.

Deano's Italian, Dublin

From the restored original brick, reclaimed wood floors and imported Italian wood burning oven... step inside of Deano's Italian Grill in downtown Dublin, Georgia and you know you are in for a treat and a photo-worthy slice of pie!
