Updated: 11 December 2015
Baltimore has many loyal followers on its pizza scene. Although there will always be a debate about what are the best pies in the city, we explore what are time and again claimed to be some of the most renowned pizzas in the city. Read ahead for our guide to the best slices you’ll find in Baltimore.
Iggie’s BYOB serves up some fabulous pizza choices. Their menu boasts Napoli style pizzas made with San Marzano tomatoes, with popular items being the Alice with basil pesto and goat cheese among other ingredient. Another go-to is the sinfully good Diavolo, which has won pizza of the year in the city before, with spicy sausage and layers of mozzarella, asiago, fontina and parmigiana with hot peppers and olives.

Given the staggering array of gourmet toppings at this hip and wildly popular BYOB hole in the wall—everything from artichoke pesto and pistachios to roasted duck—the best way to experience Iggies is to bring lots of friends so that you can share several of the brick-oven, artisanal, thin-crust pies, available in small ($6.95-9.95) and large ($12.95-16.95) sizes. The delicate, toothsome crust is judiciously topped with primo ingredients like house-made mozzarella, San Marzano tomatoes, Castelvetrano olives, and fresh vegetables. Eat in, carry out, or opt for Take n' Bake, a ready-made pie you finish in the oven at home.
