If you’re searching for the best pizza in Lexington, check out this list of local favorites to get you started.
Pizza from a Food Truck
Who says you can’t have pizza wherever you are? Lexington’s Rolling Oven Mobile Pizzeria is a food truck serving wood-fired pizzas and sandwiches. Its most popular pie is the Prosciutto Speciale with classic red sauce, shredded mozzarella, red onions, prosciutto, and baby arugula. There are other innovative pizzas on the menu, too, such as the potato and chorizo topped with thinly sliced potatoes, provolone, fresh mozzarella, and chorizo sausage, plus a dusting of cracked black pepper. The Bourbon BBQ Pizza, on the other hand, features shredded chicken breast marinated in the house’s own bourbon-infused barbecue sauce, plus provolone, mozzarella, red onions, and just a spritz of Maker's Mark. You can locate Rolling Oven every day using Follow That Food Truck.
Pizza by the Slice
If you like to take your pizza one slice at a time, Goodfellas Pizza is the place to go. Its slices are cheap, huge, and ready to go when you arrive. The eatery is open until 2 a.m. to accommodate night owls, a group of notorious pizza lovers. The specialty pies include The Boss with chicken, bacon, tomatoes, and a drizzle of ranch, as well as the Taste of Naples traditional margherita pizza. If you want more meat on your pie, order The Don with pepperoni, spicy Italian sausage, ground beef, bacon, and a smattering of veggies. Goodfellas also serves oven-baked subs, salads, sides, and desserts. Customers rave about the Carnegie Deli's Famous NY Cheesecake, so save room for a slice.
Pizza by the Buffet
At Giovanni's, you never have to decide on just a single type of pie. The extensive Italian buffet includes a pizza bar, salad bar, and pasta bar. Pizza toppings include everything from pepperoni and veggies to chicken, bacon, and even taco fixings. There’s even fruit pizza for dessert. The restaurant is clean, with bright, casual décor, and its all-you-can-eat lunch buffet is open from 11a.m. to 3 p.m. and again from 5 to 9 p.m. The buffet only costs $5.49 per person at lunch and $6.49 per person at dinner, so it’s a budget-friendly way to feed the whole family. Plus, there are extra discounts for kids and seniors.
