Excellent fresh pizza with some unique topping choices such as fresh basil, thyme, rosemary or oregano that are not found elsewhere. Love how the pepperoni is sliced and layered. Fresh mozzarella. Excellent.

Do not let the small store front stature of this culinary diamond fool you. The pizza and personnel are absolutely great! After moving to Knoxville and sampling in the downtown district what some told me the "best" pizza place in town I was void of a satisfying pizza fix. Saddened; my search for a great Knoxville slice continued on. Enter... More

We ate here for the first time on Thursday while on a business trip in town and it's on a short list for the best pizza we've had. The ingredients are made fresh and we decided on a red pesto sauce pizza with fresh mozzarella with pepperoni, red peppers, and fresh oregano. After devouring their 12 inch pizza, which is the...

We eat here at least twice a month and is the ONLY place we have found that truly uses real mozzarella. The crust is very crispy and slightly dry, which we like! My only complaint is that I can't get here more often!

We could not decide on a pizza, so they let us go 50/50 if we stayed with the same sauce. So, our white sauce pizza was half Iron Mike (baby spinach, caramelized garlic, fresh mozzarella) and half Mancini (red onion, rosemary, pistachios, fresh mozzarella). So, so good. Loved the chewy crust. Will be back! Fun staff, cool concept, fast service.... More

This was a great place. It was fun and clean. The pizza was amazing. It was the best pizza we had ever had. The staff was incredible. I would highly recommend the smore's dessert pizza! It was not hard to find and in a great little shopping strip.

Hard Knox knows how to make good pizza. They use high quality ingredients that result in a superior pizza! You can't go wrong with anything that you order, but my heart belongs to the selections that have a balsamic glaze. Makes me hungry just thinking about it!

There is certainly a pizza you will love here. And you can create your own if their combinations don't work for you. Outside and indoor seating available. Love the low tables with the low stools very eclectic and adds a touch of fun to the meal. The staff is great and clearly unique. Very helpful too. Beer options are available... More

After finding Hard Knox Pizza on Trip Advisor, we drove a few miles off of our trip route to stop in for lunch. We ordered several types of pizza. All were great, BUT the clear winner was their special, The Barbed Wire pizza. This pizza came with BBQ pork, bacon, jalapeños, cheese, and a balsamic drizzle. We got it without... More

From the time we walked in and smelled the garlic in the air we felt it would be a great experience. We LOOVE garlic and feel a pizza can never have too much on it! Super friendly gal greeted us. We went at around 4PM so we almost had the place to ourselves, which was nice. I ordered a white... More
