This has become our "go to" pizza place in Knoxville. Love the different types of pizza white or red. There has not been a pie that we did not like even the Festivus pizza was good. Usually we get the Rocky Balboa (red), BLT (white), Bonecrusher (red). They also have local beer on tap.

Read the reviews and had to try this out. Great little pizza joint with their mission and vision clearly displayed on the wall and they live up to it. The pizza was excellent - made so by the high quality of the ingredients they use. My husband and son shared the 12" Bonecrusher. My son said "This is the best... More

If you live in Knoxville or are visiting, I suggest you try Hard Knox Pizza. Each pizza is hand made with the finest fresh ingredients then cooked to perfection in a wood fired oven. You also get to choose from a wide array of toppings and pizza selections. We ordered 5 different pies for a family feast and all tasted... More

The pizza was delicious. Crust was amazing. We got the bone crusher (I believe?) And it was so good. The only problem was their sizes are 6 in or 12 in. Which is like a small and medium, with the medium being $13. So if you want a large pizza you would end up spending almost $30 on the two... More

This is my go to when I want to treat myself to an excellent Pizza. It is a drive from my house or I would go more often. The Sweet Pea is my favorite and I salivate just thinking about it. Fire grilled, made to order pizza. Treat yourself and try it out.

My family and I were visiting friends in the area and were directed to this place. It was outstanding. We had the bone crusher... very delicious. the ingredients tasted fresh not to mention you can watch your pizza being made. I was very impressed with this place. It would be worth the four hour drive just to go back.

We had a craving for some good pizza and Hard Knox did not disappoint. They serve Abita root beer on tap and had live entertainment. To add to the pleasant surprise, our pizza did not take long to make. The brick oven pizza was delicious and they use quality ingredients. Definitively worth a try if your in the mood for... More
