The Pies Have It

1. O4W Pizza
This laid-back spot opened relatively quietly in the Old Fourth Ward area not long ago, but word of mouth has already spread to give O4W Pizza considerable buzz and accolades. A prime example of its fab fare is the Grandma Pie, a thin-crust square pizza that’s 12 slices of garlic, marinara, fresh mozzarella, EVOO, pecorino and basil. $24

2. Argosy
Come for the funky East Atlanta Village environ, and stay for the wood-fired pizza cooked in an open-air oven. The White Wale pizza with labneh (strained yogurt), garlic, EVOO, white anchovies, locally sourced mozzarella, fried lemon, thyme, arugula, capers and red chili flakes gets our vote. $17

3. Princi Italia
This resto is a newbie to the city’s bustling Midtown neighborhood, and it’s already making a name for itself by serving up a mix of classic- yet-inspired brunch, lunch and dinner dishes, including the black fig and gorgonzola pizza with crispy pancetta, arugula and fresh mozzarella. $15

4. Ammazza
There’s no shortage of draws for this Edgewood Avenue pizzeria—there’s a full bar, a cool rustic vibe, a giant communal table in the center of the dining area and, of course, plentiful pies. We dig the Amarena iteration, with roasted black cherries, artisan sausage, peppadew peppers, caramelized onions, fresh basil and house mozz. From $16

5. Thirteen Pies
Known for the always-changing thirteenth pie on its menu, this Buckhead Atlanta eatery tosses up unique flavor combos like its garlic and kale white pizza with baby kale, housemade garlic ricotta, fresh mozzarella, fontina and Parmesan-Reggiano cheese. $15
