What do we think the best pizza place is in Fall River?  According to 8-12 people so far from the cheese pizza taste tests…

Pizza Time is the best.

Taste Tests: Pizza vs Pizza

Pizza Reviews

We’re comparing two pizza places at the same time and selecting one winner based on the best cheese pizza.  We’re using single-elimination brackets to come up with the ultimate favorite cheese pizza from all of the 22 pizza places.

Starting in December 2022 we’re doing about one test per week.

Here’s a list of each of the tastings, the newest first.  As the list grows (because it’s going to be large), I might put this list on its own page.  Time will tell.

Even if a pizza place doesn’t ‘win’ because of their cheese pizzas, they can still earn a special place in our list with their gourmet creations.

We’re also reviewing the most popular specialty pizzas while we’re at it and scoring them 1-10.  The highest rated specialty pizzas will be added to the slideshow below!

 

Specialty Pizzas Slideshow

Backyard BBQ Chicken from Pizza Hut

Red onions would help this pizza reach it’s ultimate form but the flavor is still a 10/10.

Chourico & Chips from Atlas Pizza

If french fries on pizza doesn’t weird you out, this is a fantastic option.

BBQ Chicken Pizza from Eastern Pizza

The two favorites at Eastern are primarily the BBQ and the Buffalo Chicken Pizzas.

The BBQ Chicken pizza is sweet and savory without being overwhelming.

Steak Arriabata from Minerva's III

This fan favorite has been a staple pie at Minerva’s III for around 20 years and for good reason.  It’s magnificent.

PieZoni's Mixed Greens Pizza

For the health-conscious at work Piezoni’s mixed greens pizza is the go-to pie.

Pizza Places That Have…

Click/tap a tab to see a list of pizza places that have your option, below.  These results should be pretty accurate but always be sure to check with the restaurant.

Deep Dish Options

Pizza Hut Pan Pizza

This is the classic deep dish from my youth.  That spongy crust is surrounded by caramelized outer shell from a searing-hot pan.

Sometimes the service at our local Pizza Hut is spot on.  Sometimes it isn’t.  My mileage has varied.

Domino’s Handmade Pan Pizza

They’ve had it for a few years now and it’s pretty great.

The only complaint I have is how extraordinarily well this pizza keeps it’s heat.  It took the finish right off of my butcher block drop-table by putting it directly on the surface!

It has a pizza-shaped scar now.

No big loss.  It’s just a drop table — but be advised with your own furniture.  It comes HOT.  Please don’t put it directly on finished furniture.  The results could make you sad.

You can find more photos of their pan pizza here.

Pizza from Non-Pizza Places

We have other pizza offerings from restaurants and other stops.

Two of my favorite restaurants for pizza that aren’t pizza places are Barrett’s Alehouse and Mesa 21 (Barrett’s Waterfront is probably also good, but I haven’t had it).

Market Basket’s Market’s Kitchen also has an extra-large pizza with some of the freshest tasting sauce you’ve ever had.  Some folks don’t like their pizza because it can be underdone.  For me, I like that I can freeze that entire thing in gallon freezer bags and throw them in the air fryer later for crispy awesomeness.

I love Cumberland Farms but I’ve tried their pizza and man.. not a good time.  I’ll give it another chance or two.  Maybe they’ve updated their recipe since the last time I tried it.  It was really bad.

The number one pizza place according to Other Sites:

(And be careful.  The following is not necessarily good advice)

Trip Advisor: Fiorentina Italian Kitchen

With 13 reviews and 4.5 stars.
Yeah, I can see why.

Yelp: Sam’s Pizza

With 7 reviews and 4.5 stars
This is a good all-around eatery with really friendly service and a ton of great menu items, but the best pizza in the city?  No.  I’ve ordered from there frequently.  I love this place, but it’s not the best pizza overall in the city.  I’m happy they’re getting exposure as a new restaurant but Yelp reviewers are wrong on this one.

Google Maps: Dave’s Pizza

With 400 reviews and 4.2 stars
To be transparent, most of these reviews were taken before Dave sold the business to another owner during the depths of the pandemic.  Google is a machine with AI.  It doesn’t know it’s under new ownership so I don’t feel they’re giving the best heads up here.  Is it worth a trip and a try?  You bet.  Best pizza in the city?  I’m trying it a few more times before putting it anywhere in my top ten.

SliceLife: US Pizza and Grill…  

With 4.9 stars and no hint of how many reviews.
Since changing to their new location I feel like their quality has gone up considerably.  I’d only ordered one time when they were at their old location and it was less than stellar.  

We tried them in a taste test of a cheese and two specialty pizzas and they did really well.  Top marks.  I wouldn’t rate them the best in the city (and probably not a 4.9 out of 5) but their pizza is definitely worth having, especially their specialty pizzas!
