Best Handmade Pizzas in Carroll County – Westminster Edition
Pizza is an Italian import, but we have some pretty special pizza makers in Carroll County. My particular expertise is moreso Westminster than all of Carroll County, so I give you my authoritative pizza power rankings. I exclude national chains from this list, but arbitrarily include local chains because they’re my power rankings and I’m mad with power.
Ledo’s Pizza. I like Ledo’s quite a bit, but based on my arbitrary decision about what’s local (and what’s not) I decided to exclude it because it’s such a large franchise. Even so, its square presentation and sweet sauce offer a unique Westminster option!
#5 Genova’s Westminster
Offering sizes, variety, deals, and most importantly, delivery, Genova’s has a number of locations in the local area. Well-seasoned with excellent sauce, if you don’t feel like making the arduous trek across our congested highways on your own, Genova’s is the go-to delivery option for folks that want more than a national chain.
A relative newcomer and upstart to the local scene, Sergio’s offers small business care and attention to their pies. Great crust and customer service makes them a slice above the rest.
#3 Illiano’s J&P Westminster
I don’t quite understand the great divide between Illiano’s J&P and New York J&P, but needless to say that between the two organizations there are a lot of J&P’s in Maryland. Even so, its local enough for me to include it on this list. Flavorful high quality toppings, a reasonable array of coupons, and good cheese make Illiano’s a good choice.
#2 Paradiso Pizzeria
A tenured and enduring Westminster location, Paradiso’s Pizza is high quality from top to bottom. Excellent crust, tasty sauce, and tasty cheese make it a local icon in hand-tossed pizza. It’s hard to find a flaw in their pie, and yet, there’s still one more.
#1 Classico Pizzeria
The King of the Hill. Classico has the best dough, great sauce, and high quality delicious cheese. Family owned and operated, you can taste the authentic Italian expertise in every pie they make. If you want their most unique pizza offering, try their Sicilian style Summer Pizza!
