SMYRNA, Ga. — Cobb County may not be Brooklyn, but there are a number of local pizza joints in Cobb County worth checking out.
What follows is merely a basic — albeit satisfying — primer to locally owned establishments:
— DaVinci’s Pizzeria, Smyrna: A food guy, a money man and a marketing guru open a pizza joint. It’s not a joke. DaVinci’s also operates a Midtown Atlanta location. Don’t let the location fool you, these guys make a mean pie. For more information, visit http://smyrnapizza.com/.
— Big Pie in the Sky, Kennesaw: As seen on the Travel Channel, this pizzeria is home to the Carnivore Challenge. Even their smaller portions are massive. For more information, visit http://www.bigpieinthesky.com/.
— Marietta Pizza Company, Marietta: A fixture of the Marietta Square is perfectly located for shoppers and theater goers. For more information, visit http://www.mariettapizza.com/.
— Zucca Pizza, Smyrna/Kennesaw: Three friends who met while in high school in New York and opened a restaurant. When a story starts like that, you know the pizza must be good, and they have the awards to prove it. For more information, visit http://www.zuccapizza.com/our-story.html.
— New York Pizza Exchange, Vinings: First opened in 1983, this restaurant has grown ever since. It’s current location, along the tracks of the former Western & Atlantic Railroad, is a ferroequinologist’s delight. For more information, visit http://www.nypizzaexchange.com/.
