Best local pizza - 'nough said

Non chain pizza, well priced, especially specials. Organic option, popular in this college town. Not over doughed, or over sauced - just plain good.

Ordered the online special: Large 1-topping, order of wings, 2-liter soda and a piece of tiramisu for $16.99. 30 minute delivery time!! :-) Wings were very saucey, but not crispy :-( Pizza crust was nice and chewy :-) Homemade sausage was yummy :-) Needed more cheese :-( No plates and silverware brought, but the hotel has them available :-(

I love Avalanche. We buy the pizza once per month for an event that we host. The topics are always fresh and local. The pesto and chicken pizza is my favorite!

Had better pizzas, and there are LOTS of others in the city to choose from. We got in late and they were still open so it was an easy choice.

We saw that Avalanche is the best local pizza place and pizza is my favorite food so I try to have a local pizza when we travel. We didn't know that Avalanche was pick up or delivery only until we got there. So we walked in and put in an order. They said 20 minutes so we paid and went... More

Avalanche Pizza is good, yes. They use local, high quality ingredients. Their problem, however, lies in their lackadaisical attitude about service. I'm not talking about slow service, but rather rudeness to the point of managers calling us back on the delivery driver's phone to reprimand us over a computer error that they deemed our fault.They messed up our whole evening...

Vast ingredient choices as well as crust, sauce, cheese choices. Very fresh and local ingredient usage very good pizzas. I ventured out to try diff. flavors and the spinach and mushrooms where fresh not canned like other pizza chain shops. Avalanche is a one of a kind pizza joint. #3 on my top 5 pizza places.

The majority of the ingredients used by Avalanche are from local sources (within a 30-50 mile radius). They have some of the best combinations I have ever seen such as their Mt. Olympus and K-2 along with very good deals. They are willing to use pesto or their secret ninja sauce instead of marinara. Avalanche is carry out or pick... More

OK, there is simply no better pizza in the US, as established not only by their awards but by the multiple pizzas I have had from here. Their specialty pies are all the best and the prices are reasonable for the product. Look, if you want pizza and you are in Athens, you would be an idiot to go anywhere... More
