When it comes to pizza in Wallingford, there are so many delicious choices. Here are five that you should try:
Napoli Pizza Restaurant, 1145 N. Colony Rd.
When you walk into Napoli’s, it’s like you’re part of the family. If the smell of hot pizza coming out of the oven isn’t enough, the staff and owners are always so friendly. They make a big deal anytime a new or regular customer comes through the door. The pizza has a thin crust and is loaded with cheese in every bite. It also has the perfect amount of grease. Napoli’s pizza is a staple in Wallingford, serving residents for over 50 years. They make the pizza right in front of the restaurant and slices are available to purchase.
Trackside Pizza, 118 Dudley Ave.
Trackside is a unique pizza shop with a bright red train car serving as its dining room. Tables are set up alongside the car’s windows and patrons get a front row seat when a train comes by. This Margherita pizza is a white pie with mozzarella, fresh tomatoes, garlic, and basil. There is cornmeal added to the bottom of the pie, giving the crust even more delicious flavor. Trackside offers personal sized, medium and large pies.
Fabi’s Pizza, 560 S. Main St.
If you are looking for the crispiest crust, Fabi’s is the place to stop. It’s the type of pizza that doesn’t flop over as soon as you pick it up and with every bite comes a loud crunch. Even if you’re not a crust person, you will eat the whole thing. At Fabi’s one is able to order whole pies or by the slice.
Hometown Pizza & Restaurant, 314 Main St.
When it comes to slices, Hometown wants to give more variety than the classic options like cheese and pepperoni. In fact, they are known for their buffalo chicken pizza. This crispy white pie pizza has just the right amount of spice and is smothered in blue cheese dressing. Packed with so much flavor, this pizza will leave you wanting another slice.
Amore Pizza, 83 N. Turnpike Rd.
Amore Pizza is a small shop located right next to Neil’s Donuts. It’s a perfect spot, because you can get breakfast and lunch, and only need to go next door. Amore Pizza is only for takeout. Even if there weren’t COVID 19 restrictions in restaurants, one would not be able to dine in at Amore. The cheese slice was ready in minutes. It was hot and gooey, which was ideal for the chilly day. A cheese slice was only two dollars and other toppings can be added on for a small upcharge.
