1. Pure Pizza
Described as one of the best in Charlotte for its amazing, thin crispy crust pizza and their farm to table fresh approach. Located on the 7th Street Public Market, Pure Pizza got its name from its holistic pizza philosophy which involves a revolutionary sprouted ancient grain crust and farm-fresh ingredients. The selections are creative and unique. Outstanding server and quaint setting. They also have a very original selection of toppings. Definitely try the mozzarella with chorizo, topped with radish, cilantro and a squeeze of lime. Fantastic! The simple mozzarella with home-made pesto is out of this world.
2. Hawthorne’s Pizza
Located at the corner of 7th St, a casual, unpretentious space-some outdoor seating in a lovely part of town. This place has grown into an essential component of the neighborhood, due to the fact that Hawthorne’s has a lot of family and kid-oriented nights and specials. Relaxed family atmosphere, tasty food, friendly service & perfect location. If you get a chance and feel on the wild side, order the fried cheesecake for dessert. Awesome!

Benny Pannello’s is a pretty cool joint, definitely a good stop during a bar crawl or just any day you are craving pizza. The place is great, the concept is super simple. Gigantic pizza by the slice for only 5 bucks. Get a whole pie if you need to feed the Brady bunch. Just be careful. The box won’t fit in your car. You’ll need a few bungee cords to strap it to the roof!
