This local pizzeria has been on the "best pizza" shortlist for years. Tito's uses dough and sauces made in-house. You can build your own or go for one of the "house favorites" like the Napoli pizza, which is topped with cut tomatoes, garlic and basil or the Tito's Deluxe which is piled with peperoni, mushrooms, onion, peppers, sausage, ham, beef olives and banana peppers.

Providing the area with just about everything it needs, Greenridge Plaza offers a great pizzeria. Only its no normal pizzeria. This unique establishment is nice enough for a date night. The menu is more than just pizza, but that's what they're on the list for, so that's what we'll look at. The menu is broken down into "classics" like peperoni and mushroom "veggin' out," which are meatless, like the pear and gorgonzola and the "goin' to Cali" section which features pizzas with a modern zing like the spicy shrimp pizza. Nominated for Best Pizza 2011.
200 N. Main St.Greenville, SC 29601
Bertolo's has pizza by the pie or pizza by the slice. The Downtown location's late-night window has prevented many a hangover headache. But if you need a dinnertime pizza, they have the pizzas you'd expect plus standouts like the Margherita pizza, barbecue chicken pizza and a bacon double cheeseburger pizza. Nominated for Best Pizza 2011.
