Dewey's Pizza, Dayton, OH

Dewey's Pizza started out as a small operation, but at the time of this writing they've expanded to five states and they're just continuing to grow. They make and toss their pizza dough behind as the base for truly unique and mouth-watering pizzas. And if nothing from their expansive specialty menu strikes your fancy, you can always design your own pie. To top it off, Dewey's knows that nothing pairs with pizza like a nice cold beer, which is why they keep a huge lineup of local and national craft brews on tap at all times.

Marion's Piazza, Centerville, OH

Marion's Piazza started right in the heart of Dayton in 1965, and it was the first pizza establishment in Dayton to offer inside dining with over 200 seats. The founder, Marion Glass, invested his entire life savings into building that restaurant and it continued to expand to nine locations in the Dayton area. To date, they've been voted “Dayton's Best Pizza” in over 37 local newspapers and magazine surveys, and Pizza Today Magazine named them “Second in the Nation of Independent Pizza Establishments.”

Giovanni's Pizza, Fairborn, OH

Tony Spaziani, the founder of Giovanni's Pizza, came from a family of restaurateurs, dating back to the early 1900s. His grandfather, father, and two sisters each opened different Italian restaurants over the years, and Tony's goal in life was no different. He opened Giovanni's in Fairborn in 1953, and in 1994 added a party/banquet room, doubled the dining space and expanded the menu to include dozens of his own family recipes including traditional Italian bread from his grandfather's secret recipe.
