The best pizza in Amherst: a local guide

Grecian pizza, also known as Greek-style pizza, was first prepared in Connecticut by Costas Kitsatis in 1955. He was a Greek immigrant from Albania. Nowadays, there are many experienced Greek-style pizza experts across Amherst, and the style dominates most of the pizzerias in the town. Grecian pizza has a thin and puffy crust. To prepare it, you place the dough in an oiled pan instead of baking it directly on the oven floor. It’s served with more olive oil brushed on the crust, which is different from other pizza baking. You can place your pizza slice on a serviette or paper towel to reduce the amount of olive oil getting on your hands while enjoying this treat. Typical toppings of Greek-style pizza include spinach, olives, and feta cheese, a heavenly combination. You will also find options with garlic and fresh tomatoes. Most places will let you customize if you prefer your own toppings while keeping the delicious Grecian crust.

Best Delivery Pizza in Amherst

Athena’s Pizza is a heavyweight in town for making the best Greek-style pizzas. The pizzeria transforms quality ingredients into exquisite dishes you can enjoy as delivery. To ensure you get one of their specialties, try their Grecian Taste Pizza, which comprises black olives, oregano, fresh tomatoes, and feta. The finished product has an enticing aroma, and it’s healthier than a classic New York-style pizza due to the feta and extra veggie toppings. Your Grecian Taste Pizza would go nicely with an order of Athena’s Greek Salad with chicken served with feta cheese and black olives. Try the Seafood Salad with crabmeat and mozzarella if you feel like that’s too much feta. They also do sandwiches, wraps, calzones, and wings. It’s easy to order something for the whole family.

Any one of Bruno’s specialty pizzas is also a solid choice. If you like your pizza topped with chicken, you should immediately add the Red Rooster and Chicken Divan to your order. Sometimes the perfect side to a decadent pizza is a healthier salad. Not to worry; Bruno’s has you covered. They improve on a traditional Greek salad by adding grape leaves and garlic bread. They also feature a Tuna Salad and Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad; both served with garlic bread. If salad isn’t your thing, the menu is stacked here with tons of appetizers.
