Whether you want a whole pie or just a slice, looking to sit down or grab and go, there are plenty of options for everyone to grab a slice of pizza in Downtown Columbus.
White Pizza with Spinach and Tomato, Aracri Pizzeria on Gay
If they've been around Downtown for 30 years -- they must be doing something right. A classic joint with pizza by the slice plus subs and specialty slices (like Balsamic Drizzle Margherita). It’s a tasty, inexpensive option open every day and offering a Monday-Friday happy hour!
Perfect for: Super-fast service and retro vibes
Esso Sausage Spicy Pizza, OH Pizza & Brew
If you want to take things up a notch, check out this Esso Sausage Spicy Pizza. A classic with a little kick, this spicy pepperoni is made locally by the Esso Sausage Company. Can’t take the heat? Wash it down with a beer from the bar (I.e. the “brew” in OH Pizza and Brew). They have Happy Hour daily from 3-6pm.
Perfect for: After work bite and beer
BBQ Chicken Pizza, Pizza Rustica
Right across from the Ohio Statehouse, Pizza Rustica has everything you could want from fast-casuel fare and … and then some. The mega slices are sufficient solo or pair with another offering from their menu like calzones, salad or gelato.
They also have a secret entrance inside the Huntington Center so no need to make an extra trip outside.
Perfect for: mixing and matching.
Not your typical pizza place, everything on the menu is vegan. That’s right - EVERYTHING. But if you take your meat-loving friends they might never know. You must try the Jalapeno Popper Stuffed Crust pizza. We may be biased, but it’s easily the best in the city. Pizza is just a slice of what this upscale diner offers so be sure to check out their entire menu.
Perfect for: Meatless Monday
Garbage Pizza, Mikey's Late Night Slice
Irreverent, ingenious, delicious. Pizza and pop culture combine for an over-the-top experience in an insta-worthy locale. If you’re not familiar with this iconic Columbus pizza joint, they’re known for in-your-face names like The Wedgie and Silence of the Buffalo Chickens. They’ve also got GF and vegan options so everyone can partake.
Perfect For: A late-night slice (trite but true)
67 E Gay St
Chicken pesto? Mushroom? Hot sausage? Yes please. With six delicious specialty pizza offerings all half off during happy hour, Due Amici is THE place for an after-work slice.
