Okay, “best” is pretty subjective. But that’s the beauty of having pizza choices, right? It’s the breeding grounds for opinions. Maybe you’ll agree with me, maybe you won’t. Maybe my post will incite outrageous commentary, or maybe it will spawn a revenge post on how wrong this girl is about her pizza judgements. Regardless, I’m sticking to my opinion here.

If you’ve ever been to Pearl Street Pizzeria and Pub (which is just a few blocks from Banker’s Life Fieldhouse) you’d know it’s unique. It’s a bit more than a sit down, grab a pizza restaurant. The ideal order? Where should I start?  They have distinctly different flavors, all happen to be excellent so you can’t really botch an order.  Pick from a variety of handmade specialty pizzas and enjoy one of the delicious local micro-brews on tap. Not feeling pizza, then dig their amazing pasta dish, Farfalle Ala Vodka.

Pizza is all about the choices and Pearl Street has so many options and varieties, even the pickiest pizza eater will be za-tisfied. My personal favorites are the Supreme or Mad Greek!  Handmade crust daily, not overly sauced and when available – locally sourced, fresh toppings.

The pub-style environment and huge menu will leave you wanting more. Did I mention they have cheesy breadsticks!? The next time you’re out downtown and need a bite to eat, grab your friends and head to Pearl Street. Maybe I’ll even see you there!
