Foodies and historians may look back at the summer and fall of 2015 as a transition time for pizza in Cleveland. The city has plenty of men and women on the hunt for the perfect pie, much like the perfect bottle of beer or piece of barbeque. This summer, the summer of pizza, began with the Cleveland Pizza Fest at the Cuyahoga County Fairgrounds and will end with the opening of three new pizza joints. Here are five pizzerias, some new and some that are expanding, that should be on the radar of every pie-lover in Cleveland.
1. Pizza (216) - September 2015
Relatively unknown to most at the festival, this place finished second even while losing out on a day of voting. Partners Johnny Lis and Brad Wiescinski will open the brick-and-mortar pizza palace of the same name this fall in the Old Arcade across from the Corner Alley. Pizza (216) will open its doors around the same time as a beloved chef attempts to take his slice of the pizza market.
