Static and dynamic content editing
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
How to customize formatting for each rich text
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
Though Columbus might not be as booming as New York City or Chicago with their pizza reputation, they have had quite a few visitors happily surprised. Not that I think you would want to move there just for pizza, but I’d suggest keeping a listings tab just in case!
Columbus is filled with more pizza than you think. So, for your convenience, we’ve compiled the top 28 pizza places:
Address: 2885 N High Street, Columbus, OH 43202
Harvest Pizzeria is a Columbus pizza chain that is located in the German Village, Clintonville, Dublin, and Over-The-Rhine boroughs. It’s also known as Harvest Kitchen + Bar, depending on the location (aka the Clintonville and Over-The-Rhine branches). They pride themselves in gourmet, artisan pizzas made from the fresh ingredients they buy from their partners’ local farms. They also provide pizzas to Curio Cocktails.
Pizza was awesome and the buffalo cauliflower is off the charts delicious! Curbside service was perfect! Called when I arrived and the food was was brought right out to my car! Everything was hot and as ordered! We just love Harvest! - Yelp Review
Borgata Pizza Cafe
Address: 5701 Parkville Street, Columbus, Ohio 43229
We may not be able to officially confirm if it’s the top-rated Italian restaurant in Columbus, but it’s definitely up there in the top 20. Borgata Pizza Cafe serves not only pizzas, but also salads, sandwiches, and pastas. They have two locations in Ohio: Worthington and Columbus. Worthington has the full bar and Monday night football special, but you could still have the best part in Columbus--the pizza!
You will not find better NY-style pizza in Columbus - or better pizza in general in Columbus. Whatever you do, order extra cheese on your pizza, and passing on the pepperoni would be foolish. - Yelp Review
Address: 615 N. High Street, Columbus, Ohio 43215
Neighborhood: Short North
As part of the Cameron Mitchell restaurant family, Marcella’s carries the same gourmet vision. Their traditional pizzas are made fresh and styled with a “flatbread” look that makes them look more artsy (and good for Instagram!). Don’t forget to explore--it’s an Italian eatery, so it’s as much about the other dishes (and dare I say dessert) as it is about the pizza.
Went there after the big reopening. I love their melted cheese appetizer - yum! I'm also a fan of the meatball and will always choose spaghetti and meatball as my entree purely to get it. Marcella's never leaves me disappointed. - Yelp Review
Hounddog’s Three Degree Pizza
Address: 2657 N High Street, Columbus, OH 43202
Neighborhood: University District
Hounddog's Three Degree Pizza is “pizza for the people.” Though they offer a selection of specialty pizzas, they also have a “make your own” option that includes three different crusts (thin, “Smokin’ Joe’s” which is a thick garlic butter crust, or gluten-free) and even lets you pick from five different sauces. Careful! The sauces can be relatively mild (like Joes, traditional red sauce) to Howlin’ (even more spicy than spicy).
This is one of my favorite pizza places in Columbus. Highly recommend their meat lovers pizza! We did it with the garlic butter crust. So flavorful! Also we got breakfast pizza as well. Interesting and fun concept. We did it with the thin crust. It tasted like a breakfast lol. It even came with the maple syrup. But I just ate its original flavor. Lasagna bites were tasty as well. Good appetizer to start! Their pizza prices are around $20-25. Reasonable price for the pizza quality. - Yelp Review
Mikey’s Late Night Slice
Address: 268 S 4th Street, Columbus, OH 43215
Mikey’s Late Night Slice started as a small pizza shack in a parking lot and evolved into a Columbus-wide pizza chain. Though it’s now a popular late-night destination (open until 3 or 4 am!), they keep the theme traditional by selling pizza by the slice with variations in common recipes. Here, there's no need for gourmet, hard-to-pronounce ingredients. If you’re a night owl with a nostalgic, late-night pizza craving, buy a slice or two here or split a pie with friends.
Hands down my favorite pizza place in town!!! I'm a fan of thin crust pizzas but theirs is thicker yet still crispy and delicious. Their unicorn sauce is what keeps me coming back to this place though! I only eat my pizza crust here because of the unicorn sauce! Great if you're craving something to eat after a few drinks at night or just looking to have a quick bite in the downtown area. - Yelp Review
Adriatico’s New York Style Pizza
Address: 1618 Neil Avenue, Columbus, OH 43201
Neighborhood: University District
Disclaimer: Adriatico’s is not actually from New York. Adriatico’s New York Style Pizza is located on the Ohio State University campus. Every Sunday, students get 20% off with their Buck ID, so If you have a friend from OSU, consider accompanying them for Sunday pizza time. Even though they are friendly towards the students, anybody is welcome.
I have been in love with adriaticos pizza since going to college at OSU. Recently went back there for a bday treat and it was still as delicious. We ordered wings, pizza, spaghetti and fries. The wings and pizza were amazing. The spaghetti and fries were standard- nothing too special, but not bad either. I can't wait to go back again. - Yelp Review
OH Pizza & Brew
Address: 88 E Broad Street, Columbus, OH 43215
Besides pizza, OH Pizza & Brew also serves sandwiches and bar food such as decorated tots and wings--and don’t forget the deep fried desserts! If you thought you’d need to wait until the next state fair for funnel cake and deep fried Oreos, you’re in for a treat.
We've been looking for our new go-to pizza place in the downtown area and I think we've found it! I'm not a fan of thin crust style pizza and feel like you really need to look for hand tossed. We really enjoyed OH Pizza, it had a nice crust with a lot of flavor and tons of toppings! The sauce also had a good flavor, not too sweet. They also have a great garlic sauce that you can get on the side! We'll definitely be back! - Yelp Review
Address: 2643 E Main Street, Columbus, OH 43209
Rubino’s Pizza is a classic pizzeria for Columbus suburb Bexley’s residents. It gives the old school diner vibe and has a small menu characterized by toppings rather than names. It also only takes cash. Rubino’s is unlike other Columbus pizzerias because of its characteristically thin crust pizza. If you’re not a fan of thin crust, you might want to skip it.
Best pizza ever... really... thin cracker crust, some of the best sauce in town, perfectly cooked, fast service, friendly staff, clean restaurant, what else could you ask for? Cash only! ATM next door or across the street. - Yelp Review
Villa Nova Ristorante
Address: 5545 N High Street, Columbus, OH 43214
A family-owned restaurant, Villa Nova Ristorante comes with a history. Aside from delicious pizza, the restaurant also includes a large collection of copper teapots and gauges--obsessions of the late former owner, Frank Colleli.
I've been to villa nova a few times and the food is always good. Tried the lasagna for the first time and it was delicious! This pizza is always fantastic. They give you plenty of food that keeps you filled up good. Can't wait to go back and try their special cocktails and a different meal. - Yelp Review
Address: 1350 W Lane Avenue, Columbus, OH 43221
Neighborhood: University District
Over 60 years ago, Thomas Iacono brought his family recipe over from Italy and founded his first restaurant. Now, the restaurant has been a “Central Ohio Tradition Since 1952.” Even today, Tommy's Pizza is known for thin, crispy crust, and daily-made fresh dough and sauce. One of their featured pizzas, the All-the-Way Pizza, is their spin on a supreme pizza, topped with pepperoni, mushroom, sausage, peppers, and onions.
Absolutely a classic! Old school good pie and great salad dressing. Their subs are the bomb too. There's nothing fancy here, just great food and friendly service. - Yelp Review
Address: 4044 Morse Crossing Columbus, OH 43219
Pizza Cucinova specializes in Neapolitan artisan pizza that is made with fresh ingredients. Even though it’s a franchise, most of the locations are located in the Columbus area. Most notably, they have a custom personal pizza option that allows you unlimited toppings for only $8!
We visited this place initially as part of a Yelp Elite event and went back a second time. We got a Caesar salad and a customized pizza, along with a cannoli for dessert and everything was wonderful. Great flavor, fresh ingredients, great service, and prices. Highly recommend. - Yelp Review
Yellow Brick Pizza
Address: 892 Oak Street, Columbus, OH 43205
Neighborhood: Olde Towne East
There’s a reason why it’s named after the yellow brick road. Yellow Brick Pizza is known for its unique signature pizzas and specials, and for the fact, it also caters towards gluten-free and vegan diets. I didn’t even know vegan cashew cheese existed until I found Yellow Brick. Their current special Tristano’s Chicago Stuffed Pizza--double crust, cheese filled, topping-stuffed wonder--it isn’t vegan-friendly, but nonetheless a head-turner.
This pizza is fire! I love the Chicago style, deep dish pepperoni pie! We also got the baked feta appetizer and it was bomb, as well. The sauce is a beautiful dance of whimsical herbs and sweetness. Topped with savory, to boot. Yum! - Yelp Review
Address: 17 S High Street, Columbus, OH 43215
Pizza Rustica is actually a child branch of a franchise from Miami, but it’s gotten so popular that it’s much more well-known than its parent. As for their menu, they offer a selection of salads, calzones, and even a couple dessert pies to choose from-- and salad pizzas, imagine that!
Very friendly staff and even better pizza! Thin pizza and a good crust. Very tasty and not skimpy with the topping. Cheesy bread was excellent and very cheesy. - Yelp Review
Address: 1327 W Fifth Avenue, Columbus, OH 43212
Just because it’s a successful chain doesn’t mean it’s less than a small business pizza shop. Dewey’s Pizza is a popular midwestern pizza chain that spans from Ohio to Kansas. Their fun-themed pizza names such as Green Lantern and Edgar Allen Poe, along with a broad vegetarian selection gives this place an edge. What is even more awesome is that Dewey’s has a volunteer network called Dewmore, because giving back is always a good idea.
Favorite pizza joint in Columbus--great pizza with top-notch crust (unless you only like the flat kind of pizza) and great customer service. Our usual is Dr. Dre with red sauce instead of olive oil and nix the ranch. The little guy loves his pizza with pineapples and mushrooms - Yelp Review
Address: 936 N 4th Street, Columbus, OH 43201
Downtown: Italian Village
Even though GoreMade Pizza has an established a permanent location in Columbus’ Italian Village, they started as a mobile business and to this day they still drive around selling pizzas. With a wood-fired oven in their van, they often appear at local markets. Their bond with the community and their customers has always been a driving factor of their passion and success.
Really cool place .. mostly all locally sourced made from scratch seasonal toppings .. great wood burning oven.. staff was way friendly and efficient ... I will be back for sure - Yelp Review
Address: 2025 Polaris Parkway, Columbus, OH 43240
It’s a long-time family business once led by the current owners’ grandparents, but Carfagna's Restaurant still keeps up the tradition with a variety of Italian meals. Their Italian Wedding soup and handmade specialties have Yelpers raving.
What a wonderful family restaurant. Friendly, high quality, food. Enjoy all the menu items. Great Value. Fun environment and so convenient. Eat in or to go for parties. Highly recommend - Yelp Review
Address: 1369 Grandview Avenue, Columbus, OH 43212
It’s Zagat-rated and is probably going to be packed at dinner-time because it only opens in the evenings so I recommend getting a reservation! Figlio is an Italian restaurant, but pizza is the main dish that the owners considered when they first opened. If you want to get a feel for what taste the owners had for their passion, try “Peter and Laurie’s Favorite.”
Love this place. Been going for many years and the food is very consistently good. Atmosphere is cozy and energetic. Pizza is crisp and toppings are very good. Chicken diablo pasta is my favorite though. - Yelp Review
Address: 40 N High Street, Columbus, OH 43215
Though Cafe Napolitana has been a downtown Columbus staple for years, it’s recently received a facelift. The website is sleek and modern, and they even added a blog and pictures and social media to keep up with the times. It’s the same traditional pizza and bar, but with a new look. It’s not too late to discover it; it’s the same taste as always!
This was some of the best pizza I've had in Columbus. It was super quick and the staff was really nice. It's not the fanciest place but great for hanging out casually with friends. - Yelp Review
Paulie Gee’s South North
Address: 1195 N High Street, Columbus, OH 43201
Neighborhood: Short North
If you’re into the wood-fired craze, Paulie Gee’s may be a good place to add to the list. Although it’s a New York-based pizza chain, Paulie Gee’s South-North is the Columbus branch that’s still 5-starring on Yelp. We suggest keeping an eye on the website’s weekly schedule--there are special deals Tuesday to Friday, depending on the time.
You can really taste the quality of the ingredients here. Truly the best pizza I've had in a long time! It's a pretty nice place inside and the staff was very friendly. Would definitely come back! - Yelp Review
Address: 4452 Kenny Road, Columbus, OH 43220
Iacono’s Pizza is what locals would call a typical “mom-and-pop” Italian restaurant. Their pizza mirrors traditional Italian recipes with its thin crust, a favorite among their regulars. Though Iacono’s is primarily a pizza joint, customers also praise their homemade spaghetti and meatballs, and selection of subs. Other notable points include the weekday lunch buffet and salad bar, which attract customers on an ongoing basis.
Love Iaconos! Best homemade pizza in the city! Family owned and great fresh crust, meatballs and THE RANCH is the BEST! - Yelp Review
Mama Mimi’s Pizza
Address: 1565 King Avenue, Columbus, OH 43212
Mama Mimi's Pizza is home to the “Take N’ Bake” pizza. Owners Jeff and Jodi Aufdencamp started this business in 2000. There goal was to help bring families back together at their kitchen table. That’s why they serve and deliver Take N’ Bake Pizzas. It’s a meal that’s cooked at home and brings families together.
I've been going here for years. The best pizza ever. I love the fact that I can take it home and bake it when I'm ready to eat. The toppings are always very fresh. Sign up for emails. They always have coupon specials. - Yelp Review
Address: 1254 W. 3rd Avenue, Columbus, OH 43212
Grandad's Pizza is the perfect place to go when you are looking for a mouthwatering pizza. It is a family owned pizza shop that makes it dough daily. What makes the pizza so perfect is their special recipe sauce. Grandad’s takes pride in serving their customers and always offers coupons. So check out the website!
I absolutely love this place and their pizza. I just moved here from Florida and I am very picky about the pizza I eat. This place easily has become a favorite as I have already had it 3 times. Delivery is quick! 5 stars - Yelp Review
Brenz Pizza Co.
Address: 1551 Lennox Town Lane, Columbus, OH 43212
Neighborhood: University District
Brenz's well known slogan is “Born in Italy. Made in Columbus”. Besides their amazing pizza, Brenz has its own newsletters and blog. They have won over six different awards for their pizza. A cool fact that will make you really want to try their pizza is that Brenz represented the United States at the World Pizza Championship. It took place in 2017 in Parma, Italy. Since then they have won two additional awards.
Second time here, better than the first. Extremely tasty, place is cleaner than any other pizza joint I've been to, great staff. Everything we have tried has been outstanding. This is our new go to spot! - Yelp Review
Address: 1749 W 5th Avenue, Columbus, OH 43212
Rotolo's has been serving up pizzas since 1974. This family owned Italian restaurant has won several awards for their outstanding food. They proudly received the “Best Pizza in Columbus” award, and the “Top Ten in America’s Finest Pizzerias.”Whether you are a long time loyal customer or if it's your first time there, you are sure to be treated like family.
I love this pizza. It used to be a "special" occasion pizza in college. Back in the early (early) 80's and it is still as good today as it was back then !! Employees are so nice and helpful. I'd recommend it. I have not tried anything but the pizza but they have pastas and salads too. - Yelp Review
Address: 1354 Grandview Avenue, Columbus, OH 43212

Halwani Cuisine, Pizza & Stromboli
Address: 1453B Grandview Avenue, Columbus, OH 43212

Love love love the pizza and the staff! They are so friendly and wonderful. Also open until 4am which is great for people who work late around the area. Also, the baklava is delicious! - Yelp Review

The pizza from this hidden gem was pretty good as far as taste and quality. The customer service is equally on par. I received a sample of their spicy homemade wing sauce, which I plan to add to my order (wings) the next time I visit Columbus, since it was perfect. - Yelp Review
Casa Di Pizza
Address: 2986 Mckinley Avenue, Columbus, OH 43204
Neighborhood: Marble Cliff Crossing
Casa Di Pizza is not on a main road and can be a challenge to find. This restaurant is all about authenticity. Pizza is baked in a fire stone oven. Fresh ingredients layered on top of their ‘secret recipe’ dough is a must have. They are the proud winner of the Judge’s award winning pizzeria in Columbus. Check out the many options available on their menu. Order sometime between Monday and Saturday because Sunday is their day of rest!
We love the pizza & wings!!!! We are working our way through the specialty pizza's, as in we try a new one each time! The wings are amazing, we always get them plain with the sauce on the side--- sooo delicious!!! - Yelp Review
