Friday Five – Choose Your Toppings

March 23, 2012
No doubt about it, pizza is the quintessential vacation food. Wherever you go, there’s always a good pizza joint nearby, and an extra large pie is usually big enough to feed the whole family at a reasonable price. So what if you spend a good half hour arguing over toppings? The energy is certain to stimulate your appetite and, if you’re not wholly satisfied, you can order more!

Rest assured, when you come to the Outer Banks for your family vacation there are plenty of places to visit for a slice or two. Eat in, take out, just don’t forget the napkins. Here are some of our favorites. (Note: if you come in the off-season, be sure to call ahead because hours may vary.)

Corolla Pizza and DeliTry the Monte Calvo, an aromatic pie with fresh roma tomatoes and garlic. There’s also a full menu of subs and burgers.

Cosmo’s Pizza – The popular Corolla Classic has all the best toppings: pepperoni, sausage, meatballs, mushrooms, and red onions.

Pizzazz Pizza – Enjoy their lunch buffet if you dine in, or place your order online to pick up. Pizzazz has four locations in the OBX, including Corolla.

Tomato Patch PizzeriaTry the One-Eyed Purple People Eater (with eggplant) or the very unique Seafood Sensation with pesto, shrimp, and crabmeat.

Wiseguys Pies – You’d be wise to try any of these notoriously-named pizzas, like the Bugsy Siegel (ham, pineapple, and bacon) or the Henry Hill (chicken, mozz, cheddar and wing sauce).

Because we’re feeling extra hungry today, here are a few more places to try:

The Pizza Guy – Red and white sauce pies available with a wide assortment of toppings – even shrimp and scallops.

Giant Slice PizzaDelicious New York style pizza for people who need to satisfy a giant appetite.

With all the great pizza places in the Currituck Outer Banks, you can enjoy the sand and a slice.
