1. Goremade Pizza

Wood-fired pizzas made from scratch with locally sourced ingredients

936 N 4th St, Columbus, OH 43201

Goremade Pizza was inspired by a Sunday tradition among a group of friends. Looking to feed a crowd but working on tight budgets, the friends decided to each bring toppings, which they added to fresh-made pizza crusts. This resulted in a wide variety of inventive combinations. Today, Goremade Pizza carries on that tradition. Their pizzas are made entirely from scratch, using locally sourced ingredients. While you can build your own pie, we recommend opting for one of their recommended combos for a tasty treat you won't soon forget.

"Yesterday, I went to GoreMade for the first time with some friends and we shared a few pizzas for dinner. Sat on their patio, which is a huge space and has plenty of tables for seating (All of which are spaced out appropriately for covid precautions).The crew there was very accommodating and super friendly.We got the Porkistopheles, Clintonvillain and the Chefs Choice. All of which were delish!! The chefs choice was my fave, they take their local and fresh ingredients that are always in season and combine them for a unique pizza that is spot on. The crust is the perfect thickness, and the size of the pizza is enough to indulge.Supporting local brews and spirits, their bar inside is inviting and showcases the kitchen as you watch the crew create the masterpieces you'll soon eat.This is a hidden gem for Columbus, and our now go-to pizza spot!" -Yelp Review

The dough is homemade and shaped in front of a window so the kids love seeing it tossed.

All the ingredients are fresh. The tomato sauce has flavor! My favorite is the Porky fig, but even the classic pepperoni is delicious.

They have gluten free options. A great beer menu on tap and in the bottle.

All that and it won't break the bank. Every time we are in Columbus, this is a place even my kids beg to go back to." -Yelp Review

The place is pretty roomy but they had events going on downtown the day I went! So the bar was packed and we had a a long wait for our table! The food portions was huge and it taste so good! I definitely recommend this place just try to avoid it when there are events going on because they were so packed!" -Yelp Review

4926 Morse Rd, Gahanna, OH 43230

When you're in Columbus and in the mood for a cheesy, traditional-style pizza with classic toppings, Bellacino's Pizza and Grinders is just the place. Besides their pies, Bellacino's also specializes in traditional, oversized sandwiches stuffed with toppings, also known as "Grinders." The term comes from World War II-era sandwich shops on the East Coast, opened by Italian immigrants. These affordable, filling sandwiches were a favorite among laborers, or "grinders," and the name stuck to this tasty treat.

"I'm not going to lie, I'm a little embarrassed and sad that it took me so long to discover the deliciousness of Bellacino's pizza. Tucked away in a plaza off of Morse Road, Bellacino's is unassuming and easily missed among all the shops. I finally ordered it for dinner after always thinking "I should try that place." It was SO good! The pepperonis have a little kick and the cheese is not overly greasy which is a huge win. Pricing is pretty standard and they have coupons in the local ad magazines. I look forward to ordering again and trying their baked subs. Yum!" -Yelp Review

Having a good beer selection is good.Having retro beers for $2 is greatHaving affordable craft beers at good price is awesome.

It feels like a college campus bar.  But it's not.  Cool decor, friendly staff, nice out-of-the-way location, and holy crap that is some freaking amazing deep-dish Chicago style pizza!!!  I don't like deep dish Chicago pizza, but I LOVE Meisters deep dish Chicago style pizza.  Great little out of the way place.  It just goes to show you that you don't need an expensive building, valet parking, huge menu and high-end decor to have a great hang out spot.  Yeah, it could use a sweep, some paint, and some bathroom maintenance, but hey.....I'm not holding it against them.  Keep doin' whatcha doin'." -Yelp Review
