Pizza is something that Cape Cod locals take seriously. There are a few pizza places that make leaving the comfort of a Cape Cod rental home for a few hours all too tempting. These five pizza places have Cape Cod’s most mouth-watering pizza, and you should definitely give them a try.

Joey’s Pizzeria

Joey’s Pizzeria offers a wide variety of pizza, wings, subs, salads, dinners, appetizers, smoothies, and delicious fried dough. Joey’s is known for making old-style Italian thin crust pizza. They offer two different sizes – small (12-inch) and large (16-inch), each of which can be adorned with several dozen delicious toppings. You can order your pizza your way with cheese-only, one topping, extra cheese, anchovies, or a 2-, 3-, or 4-way combo. This makes it easy to customize based on you and your family’s or friends’ tastes.

Also, the calzones are made in the colossal carnival style with fried dough, meaning you are going to get a stomach-full of awesome flavor. Dinners are just as satiating, and there are platters available with fries or onion rings as sides. Oh, and this wouldn’t be a great Cape Cod experience without fresh oysters served directly from Joey’s very own oyster farm!

Pizza Barbone

One of the few things you cannot get in the kitchens of Chatham rentals is a wood fire oven. Pizza Barbone caters to travelers with its restaurant as well as its mobile ovens and bar cart. In fact, the word “barbone” means “a person who travels from place to place.” Pizza Barbone utilizes fresh ingredients and makes many menu items from scratch.  They even have a huge rooftop garden where they grow their own veggies!

Their pizza selection speaks to their desire to create healthy, fresh food. The Bianca Verde is a real stand-out, combining ricotta, mozzarella, Parmigiano, roasted garlic, basil, balsamic, and baby arugula. For potato-lovers, there is the Crushed Potato, which pairs creamer potato with bacon, garlic cream, scallion, and mozzarella.

You can treat your family to some lovely home-made desserts while you are there, and there is a nice line-up of coffees and hot teas available to chase down your meal. Gluten-free and vegan options are available, and the vegan cashew mozzarella is made in-house.

George’s Pizza House

George’s Pizza House has been in business for half a century and has been operated by the same family. They’re an award-winning restaurant, winning numerous “Best Pizza” titles over the years.

Want to see why they’ve won so many awards? Customize your 10- or 14-inch pizza with up to four toppings or pick from the Meat Lovers, Vegetarian, or House Special Combo with Works. There are also some amazing gourmet pizzas.

If you don’t feel like eating pizza, there are calzones, grinders, pastas, and salads. Pair your meal up with one of their wines or beers for an even more satisfying treat. For the young (and young-at-heart), there is milk, chocolate milk, juice, and water.

Stone L’Oven

Every pizza made by Stone L’Oven is hand-stretched to order. They’re then cooked right on top of the stone at a sweltering heat, which enhances the pizza’s flavor. Made with high-gluten spring wheat flour, whole milk mozzarella, and Stanislaus tomatoes in the sauce, these pizzas are naturally delicious.

Get either a 12- or 16-inch crust or substitute for a 10-inch gluten-free crust. A lot of the toppings are house-made, including the maple fennel sausage and house-roasted red peppers. Add some seafood to your pizza with shrimp, scallops, or anchovies.

Stone L’Oven has three different locations (in Canton, Brewster, and Newton), so wherever you are staying in Cape Cod, you can get to this amazing restaurant.

Paul’s Pizza

Last, but certainly not least, is Paul’s Pizza. They’ve been in business since 1960 and have an award-winning 10-inch thin-crust pizza that can be covered with an array of 32 toppings. This Falmouth-based joint has won Cape Cid Life Publications’ “Upper Cape’s Best Pizza” a whopping ten times!

Their massive menu makes it hard to choose between one of their pizzas, seafood or chicken plates, pasta, subs, and sandwiches. Got the kids or grandkids with you? They can opt for pizza or go with something from the lengthy children’s menu.

After filling up on some delicious pizza, return to one of our Chatham rentals for a well-deserved nap!
