Don’t ever bet against pizza. If there’s one food that continues to get better and better in just about every part of the country, it’s pizza pies and pizza slices.
And while Charleston is more well known for its biscuits, fried okra, grits and pimento cheese, pizza has a special place in our stomachs and our hearts (Honestly, whose heart doesn’t have a special place for pizza?)
From fast food pizza you can take with you on the go at 2 am after a long night on King Street to artisan pizzerias specializing in local ingredients, the Holy City is a pizza lover’s dream. So, we asked a few locals to reveal their favorite pies. Try not to drool, you might ruin your keyboard.
D’Allesandro’s Pizza, better known as D’Als, is a local favorite. College of Charleston students literally live off of this pizza, but pretty much anyone you ask where the good pizza is at in Charleston will say D’Als. College students and locals flock to this little neighborhood joint nestled in Elliotborough for not just the pizza offerings but the variety of toppings and sauces.

Luke’s Craft Pizza
You might have seen this little mom and pop joint while traveling through the cross-town just off of Ashley Ave. You also might have heard how popular their pizzas are! With only a couple seats inside, Luke’s Craft Pizza focuses on carry-out. They serve whole pies with simple, classic, high-quality ingredients. Be sure to follow them on social media, because when they sell out of fresh pies for the day, which they do often, they let their customers know.

Looking for a fancier way to enjoy a slice of pizza? Indaco has your back. The vibe is rustic and the star of the show is the wood-fired pizza and delicious wine. It’s a pretty good option for date night in Downtown Charleston. Not only do they make their own pasta, they are known for their impeccable service. Does it get any better?

If you’re heading to Zombie Bob’s, you would be wise to bring your appetite. Their “monster slices” are basically equivalent to FOUR regular slices of pizza. Located inside Frothy Beard Brewing Company, you can wash your monster slice down with a delicious beer that was brewed right across the room. Oh, and the crust is infused with the same beer made on site. On Sunday’s enjoy a pie topped with eggs, bacon, cheese and make all your brunch-lovin pizza-lovin dreams come true.

Pizzeria Di Giovanni
All that shopping at the Charleston City Market sure makes us hungry. Good thing Pizzeria Di Giovanni is just steps away and offers some ridiculously amazing pizza. Open until 3 am on Fridays and Saturdays, this Market Street joint is also perfect for a late night slice.

Located just off of Folly Road, newly opened Famulari’s is the perfect place to stop in for a pizza and couple pints on your way back from the beach. In addition to serving up crispy and cheesy slices, Famulari’s brews their own beer in house. The outdoor patio with a firepit and plenty of seating is a great place to catch a football game with friends.
