While it's not the most commonly served type of pie in the city by any means, Cincinnati is known for Dayton-style pizza. Dayton-style pizza is a hybrid pie that's a combination of a St Louis-style and a Detroit-style pizza. The thin dough of a Dayton-style pizza is crispy but not so crispy it resembles a cracker like a St Louis pie does. It's rectangular like a Detroit-style pie, topped right to the edge so it has no bare crust, and is cut into small squares for serving. The dough base of a Dayton-style pie is often a little saltier too and may have a light floury coating underneath as they're baked on a tray that's been previously sprinkled with cornmeal to prevent them from sticking. Dayton-style pizza may be what Cincinnati is known for, but you'll find a lot of pizzerias in the city baking thick crust to traditional Italian recipes as well as the top favorite, New York-style.
Give Angilo's Pizza a call to order a pie and what they'll bring you is the best delivery pizza in Cincinnati. They don't hang about when it comes to sending you your pizza either and a swift dispatch is guaranteed on every order. Angilo's Pizza occupies a premises on Grace Avenue that has the appearance of a prefabricated storage unit. It's general plainness is somewhat alleviated by a series of bright red stripes on two of the walls. Internally the décor is as basic as the exterior and furnished with aged wooden picnic tables and benches that would probably look better in a woodland setting. While Angilo's might not be great at decorating, they're first class at baking pies and that's what really counts. So forget the sparseness and treat yourself to one of their pies. You can top it with anything you like that they've got in the kitchen so don't hold back on being creative.
Drop by Andy's Mediterranean Grill on Nassau Street and you'll get the best take-out pizza in Cincinnati. Don't be put off by the Gothic-looking black canopies or by not being able to see the inside through the dark, leaded glass windows. Open the door and go straight in as this is no house of horrors. You'll find the varnished wood interior welcoming even though it does resemble a British pub more than an Italian pizzeria. The fusion of styles in Andy's décor is continued in their pie baking too. Expect to have to decide which Mediterranean country you want your pie to come from as they serve not only Italian pizzas but Spanish, Greek, and Lebanese too. The dough for all, including the pita bread for the Lebanese pizza, is made in-house and hand-tossed. These guys leave no preparation to machinery other than the actual baking. If you want to take fusion one step further, try some kebab meat or falafel on your take-out.
It's great to have a change now and then even when a city has as much to offer as Cincinnati. Get in your car and head twenty-five miles north to Mason and you'll have a fantastic fun day out if you stop off at Kings Island. Kings Island is an enormous theme park with roller coasters, water chutes, lazy rivers and wave pools. When you've heard enough screaming, go for a quiet pizza at Tony's Pizzeria on West Main Street.
The only reason to make the thirty-minute trip from Cincinnati to New Haven is to escape the mayhem of the city for a while and spend time in the tranquil surroundings of the Miami Whitewater Forest. The four and a half thousand acre park is a place to go boating, kayaking or paddleboarding, fishing, horseback riding, or hiking. If you're still feeling active, have a game of disc golf before heading to Danny B's Lounge on New Haven Road for a pizza dinner.
You can spend the day in a different state by driving south from Cincinnati for less than ten minutes if you go over the Taylor Southgate Bridge to Newport. If you're taking the kids with you, they'll enjoy seeing the marine life in the Newport Aquarium or even having a cruise along the Ohio River on a paddleboat. The sailing is a great way to pass a few hours without over-exerting yourself and will keep the kids entertained until it's time for a pie at Pasquale's of Newport on Monmouth Street.
