There are few things more satisfying in life than biting into a warm, savory piece of pizza. Handcrafted pizza baked from handmade dough brings a delicious twist to a person’s taste buds.

All pizzas are made from an original dough recipe that was five years in the making and is topped with the restaurant’s in-house recipe. Spartan Pizza is also dedicated to serving only the freshest ingredients, which is why they hand-cut all of their vegetables and toppings every day. In addition to their house-made dough and sauces, Spartan Pizza roasts its own garlic and blends its own salad dressings.
Guests can choose between ordering a specialty pizza made with shredded mozzarella or building their own pizza. Their specialty pizzas include inventive options such as the Spartan, which is made of marinara, green bell pepper, and white onion and the Helen, which is topped with roasted garlic oil, fresh milk mozzarella, and fresh basil. All pizzas come in 10”, 14”, and 16” cuts.

“I got the Lucia pizza 11 inch which is pretty big for one person I had to take it home to my husband. It was so good and I really love the crust!! they make it in an open oven so it gets the darker crust on the edges. The Lucia has ricotta, a spicy red sauce and cheese, and basil and pepperoni!” - Yelp Review

“The pizza here is the best. It's just fluffy enough, just crispy enough buttery crust pizza that melts in your mouth. My partner and I REALLY enjoyed the cheese pizza that we split last night, especially because it only too 8 dollars and something cents and it was more than big enough to split.” - Yelp Review
