Hot or cold, fresh or leftover, there is nothing more delicious or satisfying than having a slice of pizza (or a few). While the main ingredients stay the same in every pie, a few alterations here and there make all the difference and can bring each bite to a whole new level. We’ve put together a list of some of the very best spots to check out when you’re craving a nice cheesy slice of pizza in Nashville.

Dicey’s Tavern

Address: 425 Chestnut St Nashville, TN 37203

Phone: (615) 964-7022

This restaurant opened at the beginning of 2022, but is already a force to be reckoned with in the pepperoni game. Their thin crunchy crust is legendary, and their service is swift, making it possible to enjoy a hot slice shortly after delivery. Some of the most popular  appetizers here include fried cheese, fried peppers, and pickles. People that have eaten at this Nashville spot tend to rave about the peppy boy. It comes with thin crust and is topped with crispy pepperoni, a generous amount of cheese, and giardiniera sauce. The roomy and bar-like space makes Dicey’s Tavern a great joint to hang out in for hours a day, any day of the week.

Desano

Address: 115 16th Ave S Nashville, TN 37203

Phone: 615-953-1168

Pizza comes in all shapes and sizes and when you want to try something different than your typical American slice, go for their Neapolitan style Margherita pizza. This is one made with mozzarella, basil leaves, and tomatoes that make for an explosion of flavor. Pizza bakeries such as Desano in Tennessee have mastered the authenticity and history of the Neapolitan style. They have another location at the Assembly Food Hall as well.

Rock’n Dough

3449 Dickerson Pike Nashville, TN 37207

Phone: (629) 333-0404

This location is an addition to some of their already successful restaurant chains in Germantown and downtown Jackson. There is an always fresh taste with the slices served at Rock’n Dough, attributed to the locally-sourced ingredients. All the sauces, shredded cheese, smoked meats, and dough are made fresh daily, and you can tell the ingredients are fresh from the very first bite. We recommend this Nashville fave for a great slice of pizza and a chill craft beer on a night out.

Nicky’s Coal Fired

Address: 5026 Centennial Blvd Nashville, TN 37209

Phone: (615) 678-4289

We like the free flow and relaxed atmosphere in this spot and the coal-cooked pizza available here. For 10 bucks, you can enjoy any slice on their menu on Tuesday night, while family nights on Monday come with drink specials, and kids who are twelve years and under eat for free. Drop by Nicky’s Coal Fired to try some traditional Italian pizzas and great deals all week long.

This family-operated pizzeria in Tennessee is dedicated to offering a one-of-a-kind pizza experience with carefully crafted menu options. They have the Demeter vegan slices that exclude meat in favor of sautéed kale, romesco, a herb blend of vegan cheese with cherry tomatoes, garlic oil, and red onion, which is simply a delight, even if you don’t have dietary restrictions. Some of their other options include pizzas like the Titan, Dionysus, and Zeus. There are tons of fun and tasty pizzas to try here at Pegasus.

Their New York Style pies have made Five Points in Tennessee a household name for locals and visitors alike.
