They like to mess around with pizza at Pizza Factory – and that’s a very good thing. Anybody who loves pizza knows its two locations for offbeat toppings, different cheeses (mozzarella, provolone, Cheddar, Swiss, Parmesan and feta) and weirdly inventive combo pizzas. There’s the Reuben pizza, the Seafood Blanc (a White Pizza with shrimp, crabmeat, etc.), a Chicken Cordon Bleu topped with honey-mustard sauce, ham, Swiss and chicken breast – you name it, they got it. In fact, they invite you to come up with combinations they haven’t thought of yet. Note: Carryout or delivery only…

  • Ray: Pizza Factory is incredibly consistent, and that says a lot. You don’t have to worry about over- or under-done pizza with too little cheese and too much sauce. They get it right every time.
  • Jim: This is a good, solid, well-made pizza built with skilled hands. No shortcuts, and it shows.
  • Ron: With all the attention the toppings get, don’t forget that Pizza Factory’s basic recipe is quite good. Tangy sauce, with a little bite, and an excellent crust.
