Pizza Mondo is a hand-tossed haven in Bend, a place the locals know they can consistently count on. Started by a pair of attorneys, Pizza Mondo has been in operation since 1996 and recently added gluten-free pizza. The menu is pizza-heavy, but also includes salads, calzones and grinders. The Clubhouse, which features bacon, grilled chicken, baked tomatoes and pepperoncini, packs potent fl avor — while brownies are offered up as a token to those who require a sweet ending.

Philly Flash Cheesesteaks, Pizza & Wings
1901 West Street

A true family owned business, Philly Flash gets its name from the DeCesaris’ longtime involvement in Maryland drag racing. Owners Joseph and Donna DeCesaris own the pizzeria and operate it with the help of their four children. While the restaurant has a racing theme, the menu is decidedly Philly. From cheesy fries to sausage rolls, this isn’t your typical pizzeria menu. But that doesn’t keep pizza from being the star of the show!

Everybody’s Pizza

Since 1971, Everybody’s has been a pizza institution in Atlanta. The winner of several “best pizza” awards, Everbody’s has a mouth-watering menu that makes it easy to understand Atlanta’s 37-year love affair with the operation. A plethora of unique toppings, like golden raisins and honeyroast garlic, give this place a special twist. We’re smitten by the pizza sandwiches. The Everybody’s menu calls them “unique and delicious.” We can’t disagree.
