There’s no better excuse for ordering up a hot, cheesy, drool-worthy pie than National Pizza Day on February 9. It’s an entire day dedicated to the wonder and joy that is pizza, so be sure to pay homage to this national treasure with a slice (or several) from one of the most popular pizza places in town.
We crunched the numbers and these five pizzerias are the most ordered from for delivery in Orlando. And while a large cheese pie is the most frequently ordered ‘za across the board (and across the country, by the way), we’re thinking National Pizza Day is a great time to try something new, which is why we’re including a “most-unique pizza” pick for each local hot spot.
1. Tomasino’s Pizza
Love Meatball Parmigiana? Wait ’til you try the Joe the Distributor Meatball Parm Pie (aka Meatball Parmigiana Pizza). Of course, it starts with Tomasino’s famous meatballs, topped with mozzarella, then drizzled with San Marzano tomato sauce and ricotta cheese and finally sprinkled with basil.
2. Mellow Mushroom
Holy Shiitake! Yep, that’s the name of this ‘shroom-smothered, vegetarian pizza from Mellow Mushroom. It’s got an olive oil and garlic base with shiitake, button and portobello mushrooms, caramelized onions, mozzarella and MontAmore cheese. Finished with a garlic aioli swirl and a spritz of black truffle oil, and garnished with fresh chives and shaved parmesan.
3. Julia’s Pizza
There’s nothing quite like a loaded Philly Cheesesteak sandwich, oozing with cheese and drippy goodness. Except maybe Julia’s Cheesesteak Pizza topped with steak, mozzarella cheese, mushrooms, onions and green peppers!
4. Pizzeria Del-Dio Italian Restaurant
