Nashville may not be known for pizza — hey, you can't be the capital of everything — but there are fine pies to be had in Music City, and even out-of-towners are starting to notice. We ordered up six of our favorites.
1. Manny's House of Pizza: Pepperoni
Homesick New Yorkers have long hailed Manny's as Nashville's best. Try the simple perfection of the humble pepperoni slice, folded lengthwise so you can catch every gooey swaying strand of cheese.
2. Pizza Perfect (Vandy): Fantasy
No post-film Belcourt geekout is complete without a Fantasy slice from Hillsboro Village stalwart Pizza Perfect — sun-dried tomatoes, roasted garlic, spinach, feta and (the crowning touch) pesto sauce.
3. Italia: Cheese (gluten-free)
Eating gluten-free and sick of scraping toppings off wheat-flour crust? Don't tell your doctor, but Italia Pizza & Pasta's gluten-free crust uses rice flour to delectable effect.
4. NY Pie: NY White
The amazing NY White pie places ricotta and mozzarella over olive oil and fresh minced garlic — no sauce necessary. Come watch owner Greg Meyer toss the crust.
5. Five Points Pizza: Meatball Pie
A particular favorite among Scene staffers and East Siders alike, Five Points' Meatball Pie practically overflows with garlic, red onions, pecorino romano and zesty cross-sections of beef and pork.
6. City House belly ham pizza
Pork in all its glories is the main attraction at chef Tandy Wilson's nationally acclaimed City House. Among its most beloved items: the wood-fired pizza with mozzarella, Grana Padano, oregano, chilies, and glistening slivers of Wilson's house-made belly ham. Add an egg on top for decadence incarnate.
