The OpenTable Team

Baltimore’s nickname of Charm City comes from a combination of harbor-side views, friendly locals and fine food. Famous for seafood, Bay seasoning, and an increasingly diverse dining scene, Baltimore also has plenty of places to eat. But where can diners find the best pizza in Baltimore? Welcome to our Tastemakers list. We’ve done deep dish plus thin and crispy all across town to create this exclusive list of the best pizza places in Baltimore. Head to Little Italy for Neopolitan style, drive downtown for deep-dish delights or explore the suburbs to taste creative flatbreads. Whichever you choose, book a table tonight for the best pizza in Baltimore. But where are the smartest, savviest diners eating out? We’ve pulled data from thousands of restaurants to find the top spots among OpenTable's most expert, seasoned diners. From Hamden to Towson or Ellicott City, options for great pizza surround Charm City, and this list is foodie-approved by locals that know the score and where to get a slice of authentic deep dish or a crunchy, flaky, thin crust.
