A Slice of Happiness: 4 Cleveland pizza spots we love

Whether you like it covered in meats or vegetables, smothered in red sauce, topped with gooey cheese, dripping with garlic, sprinkled with parmesan, deep dish, or thin-crusted; most of us can agree that pizza is a gift bestowed upon us by the food gods. But not all pizza is created equal, and it’s our mission to provide you with the information you need to satisfy your deepest darkest pizza cravings. There are hundreds of quality pizza joints in The Land, but here are a few of our favorite places you have to try.

  1. Il Rione: We are listing this place first because it is run by two of the friendliest dudes we’ve ever met, and that isn’t even the best thing about this place. Their pizza is truly incredible  — the sauce is so good that the cheese is just an added bonus to the ensemble, and the crust is crisped perfection. We love their location in Gordon Square that was renovated from a literal crack house into a chic yet cozy hang with an awesome patio. Il Rione means “the neighborhood” and we just love the way they make you feel like family whenever you stop by.
  2. Citizen Pie: Self-professed “Pizza for the people”, Citizen Pie offers brick oven-bakedcitizen pie Neopolitan pizza at their two locations in Ohio City and Waterloo. In true Italian style, the crust is thin and soft but durable enough to support the weight of mozzarella cheese and heart toppings. Order your pizza (and perhaps a bottle of wine) at the counter, then relax and enjoy the laid-back atmosphere and pop art selection.
  3. Edison’s: Everyone loves pizza by the slice! Edison’s may not have a reputation for being the best pizza to eat at 2 AM, but I can tell you first-hand that this pizza is good at all times of the day. Sober or not, this pizza is delicious. One amazing thing about Edison’s is that they go ALL out with the toppings, I’m pretty sure they’re on their way to setting a record for how many pepperonis can fit on one slice of pizza. This pizza is gooey and greasy and best drizzled with the honey packets that they provide. Enjoy it at the bar, playing a game of pool, or on their laid-back patio in the warmer months!
  4. Harlow’s: I didn’t know how beautiful pizza could be until I visited Harlow’s. Known for their extremely aesthetic space (and Instagram) and quality ingredients, Harlow’s is sure to make you a believer. They have a small menu with five pizzas to choose from and no substitutions allowed, but only because they have perfected the art of pizza making and you just can’t mess with art. Harlow’s also happens to tout one of the most aesthetic patios in Lakewood. You may go to Harlow’s for the gram but you’ll stay for the pizza and refreshing cocktails.

That’s all for now but we are already planning our next ‘za post! What pizza joint should we check out next?

What To Do in Cleveland

We get a few DM’s a week asking for recommendations on what to do while in town. One of our FAVORITE things to do is to play tour guide when friends are in town – it is SO fun to surprise them with a side of the city they may not have been expecting. We’ve been exploring Cleveland for a few years so I can only tell you about the places we’ve experienced firsthand, but it’ll at least get you headed in the right direction. That being said, here is our Unofficial Guide to a Fun Weekend in The Land. I obviously don’t expect you to make it to every place on the list, I only expect you to try 😉
