The Best Pizza Parlors in Newark

Did you know that the world’s first pizzeria opened in Naples in 1738?

America’s first was established in New York 167 years later. Today, there are thousands of pizzerias across the country, and those near our apartments in Newark, DE include:

Wood Fired Pizza Shop 

What began as a traveling pizza oven now has a brick and mortar location. The Wood Fired Pizza Shop opened in 2014, and it partners with local farms for fresh produce. The cooks make the dough from scratch before topping it with high-quality ingredients. They’re known for their creative combinations, and also make the pickles and hot Italian sausage in-house. The twelve-inch pizzas serve one to two people with choices including pepperoni, Margherita, and El Blanco. 


At Taverna, guests find a seemingly humble menu featuring homemade pastas and coal-fired pizzas. This neighborhood gathering place boasts a rustic atmosphere with exposed brick and reclaimed wood, and it’s where strangers become friends. The bar features eighteen draft beers and Delaware’s first tapped wine system. Pizza favorites include sausage, mushroom, and crispy meatball. They pair well with a glass of Sauvignon Blanc or Tuscan Blend.

Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza 

Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza has set the country on fire. All of the dishes are made from scratch before baking to perfection in an 800-degree coal-fired oven. The chefs only use fresh ingredients and every bite bursts with flavor. The restaurant is a fun place to meet friends, and the attentive servers make everyone feel at home. Specialty pizzas include Paulie’s Pie, roasted cauliflower, and Philly cheesesteak. 

In addition to these pizzerias, our Newark, DE apartments are also near top shopping destinations and exciting cultural attractions. If you’re searching for a place to call home, please contact our leasing staff. They would love to show you our community firsthand.
