Back when I lived in Providence during the late 90s and into the early Aughts, the best pizza in Providence was Pizza Pier on Wickendon Street. I figured that was still the case until the other night when I ordered a “Take and Bake” pizza from Gourmet Pizza, which is on the corner of Hope & Olney and right next to Tortilla Flats.
I picked up the Margherita (sliced beefsteak, tomato, fresh mozzarella, basil pesto, fresh ground pepper, fresh basil, and balsamic essence) and popped it in the oven for about 7 minutes, then sprinkled on the fresh basil and drizzled on the balsamic essence and oh my was that a good pizza. Probably one of the better pizzas I’ve ever had. The crust is thin, but has character and the toppings were top-notch. The only problem was that I’m going to want to buy pizza from them way more than I should actually let myself spend the money or consume the calories.
Best pizza in Providence? You betcha-by-golly-wow, Gourmet Pizza delivers a great pie.
