Pizza is almost always a good idea, no matter the occasion, season, or age of your crowd. From toddlers to great-grandparents, through summer and winter, for quiet Friday nights at home to big, celebratory gatherings: pizza wins.
We are fortunate here in Madison that we have a variety of pizza styles to treats all kinds of taste buds. From popular chains to one-of-a-kind local joints, here is a quick round-up of restaurants to grab a slice of pizza from as soon as you can.
The Best Pizza in Madison, Alabama
- Available for carry-out, drive-thru window, or delivery
This nationwide chain is undoubtedly the most popular franchised pizza place in town. Known for great deals, fast delivery, and a delicious product, Marco’s is generally thought of as a crowd-pleasing option. Marco’s has two locations in Madison with a full menu available online.
Valentina’s Pizzeria and Wine Bar
- Available for dine-in, carry out, and delivery
This brand new pizza place just opened in the fall of 2020 and is taking the community and surrounding areas by storm. The vast menu has something for everyone, and the New York-style pizzas can’t be found anywhere else in this area. Don’t forget to add a side of meatballs! They’re the best I’ve ever tasted. Check out my full review of Valentina’s here.
Sam and Greg’s
- Available for indoor and outdoor dine-in service, carry-out/curbside (order online here), or delivery via GrubSouth
This Hughes Road staple is one of just two locations (the other one – the original – is in downtown Huntsville). They are known for a spacious two-story dining room, a large patio, and a vast menu of hand-tossed pizzas and more. Don’t forget to grab some homemade gelato to enjoy for dessert!
Cork and Crust Pizzeria
- Available for indoor and outdoor dine-in service, carry-out/curbside, and delivery via GrubSouth
Pre-pandemic, this place was almost always full. Their prime location on County Line Road lends itself well to the explosive growth happening on that side of town. Guests often go to Cork and Crust for two reasons: their excellent Sunday brunch and their pizza. All varieties are served in either 10″ or 14″, and they even have a “build your own” option. Their pies are hand-tossed, homemade, and classic.
Goodland Pour House
- Available for indoor and outdoor dine-in service and carry out/curbside
As soon as this restaurant opened last fall, I had a handful of friends all buzzing about Goodland Pour House’s “Notorious P.I.E” pizza. It didn’t take us long to check it out, and this Detriot-style deep-dish pizza completely won us over. If you like unique topping combinations (yes, please!), you absolutely cannot miss Goodland Pour House. Their full dinner menu is available online.
This locally-owned Hughes Road favorite has a full list of classic pizza in Madison, Alabama, including “build your own” options. Pizzas are all 7″ and personal sized. Pair it with a delicious greek salad, and don’t forget to save room for Baklava for dessert!
