“Best” is, of course, in the mouth of the devourer. But, if you have a hankerin’ for a slice, StarNews food critic Liz Biro says these local pizza spots are not to be missed:
Slice of Life, 122 Market St., Wilmington [Map this], or No. 101 at 1437 Military Cutoff Road, Wilmington [Map this], has crisp, chewy pies with a huge selection of toppings (meatballs, chicken, steak, sun-dried tomatoes, fresh basil, artichoke hearts, feta cheese, jalapenos, to name a few).
You can’t beat Mellow Mushroom’s funk factor, 4311 Oleander Drive, Wilmington [Map this], (MAGICAL MYSTERY TOUR pie with pesto, button and portobello mushrooms, spinach, feta cheese, and jalapenos; PHILOSOPHER’S pie with steak, portobello mushroom cap, artichoke hearts, kalamata olives, provolone, feta, and mozzarella cheeses on an oil and garlic base). MM is a favorite among vegetarians.
And find good old NY-style pies at Elizabeth’s, 4304 ½ Market St., Wilmington, or the tiny, no frills I Love NY Pizza, 28 N. Front St., Wilmington [Map this], in downtown, which is a favorite late-night spot.
