Grab a Slice at These Pizza Restaurants in Jacksonville

When it comes to making a decision on what and where to eat, it's almost a universal fact that everyone you're with will agree on pizza. At any given moment, the thought of devouring a hot, savory slice of perfectly melted cheese with all the flavorful toppings will make anyone's mouth water. We may not be known for our pizza like Chicago or New York, but there are just as appetizing pizza restaurants near our very own Jacksonville apartments.

Biggie's Pizza

One of the best New York-style pizza places in town, Biggie's has five different Florida locations that you'll need to put on your pizza bucket list. The inside of their Jacksonville Beach location will make you feel like you're in the heart of Brooklyn. It's even equipped with a mural of the late rapper, Biggie Smalls, which is where they got the inspiration for their ambiance.

V Pizza

A few Jacksonville natives received their inspiration to open a pizza place after a long trip to Italy. They knew they had big shoes to fill and have dedicated their business to perfecting Neapolitan-style pizza. Based on the amount of awards V Pizza has won, we have a feeling it's as close as anyone will get to authentic, wood-fired Italian pizza in Jacksonville.

Carmine's Pie House

For a funky yet wholesome pizza-eating experience, Carmine's is the place to be. They've got deep dishes, subs, stromboli, and a whole lot of craft beer. You'll get that neighborhood-friendly service and leave with some pretty satisfied taste buds. Not to mention, they have some pretty awesome specials throughout the week.

If you need recommendations on where to find something sweet after indulging in some pizza, we know a few places in proximity to our Jacksonville apartments. To learn more about the lifestyle awaiting you at The Hawthorne, contact us. We’d love to hear from you.
