Where would you go for the Best Pizza in Savannah? You know, I’ve never been a huge fan of pizza. As a kid, when everyone else claimed their favorite food to be pizza, I talked of my love for…broccoli. I know. I’m a weirdo.
But Vinnie Van Go Go’s has made me a believer. Located conveniently in the heart of City Market, Vinnie’s is one of my favorite restaurants in all of Savannah. Whenever Kolin and I have visitors, we make it a point to let them experience the best pizza in town. If you couple this with some great beers on tap and the best people watching vantage points from the sidewalk tables… well you have a Saturday night made for socializing.
I always order the white pizza with pepperoni and banana peppers. Kol prefers the pesto pizza. Teresa (the “boss”) prefers lots of fresh veggies (spinach, mushrooms, onions and tomatoes) and can do without the meat, while Jake (Mr. Boss) likes his loaded with spicy Italian sausage garlic and extra cheese. But you honestly can’t go wrong, whatever you decide. Oh, before I forget, they also make delish Calzone stuffed with ricotta and mozzarella cheeses, garlic, and herbs, served with a side of marinara sauce.
While the food is great, one of my favorite things about Vinnie’s is getting to see them prepare the pies. I sit in awe as they spin the dough; I could watch it for hours! Of course, there is a small side of me that wants to see the pie fall, flat, on the spinner’s upturn face.
Whether you order a whole pie or snag a single slice (which is so big you can share it with a friend), head to City Market, or have it delivered; just make sure to add Vinnie Van Go Go’s to your itinerary!
