nice, thin crust pizza

Upper crust is not much to look at, but the pizza is very good. Fresh dough, savory sauce, and good toppings make an ideal pizza. Upper crust has all three. You can call or order on line. However, I like to just stop in and see what the daily special is and then place my order. This gives me... read more

I like this place, friendly and priced fairly. I had the two slice special and it was tasty but man was it greasy. Pizza doesn't need to have so much grease! But it was still yummy.

Delicious as always, but since the business contracted it seems there are very few choices... Cheese, pepperoni and a topping of the month or topping of the day... Would be great if they had a few other simple choices... Don't need 20.... Maybe a white and/or a pesto? Nice to have beer on tap....

The pizza is overloaded with stuff and greasy. No we didn't expect fine dining but between the instrument of torture chairs and the noise level, it was not a fun place. We had a margherita, which was icky, and another that was so forgettable that I have forgotten what was on it.

I need to say I like my pizza a bit thicker. I want slices I can hold in my hand and are more satisfyingly filling. (Thin-crust pizza is like a thin piece of chocolate to me; I'd prefer having something that really delivers the goods, not something that just gives you a taste.) Nonetheless, I must say Upper Crust pizza... More

As an Italian living abroad, finding a pizza that I like is never an easy thing. Upper Crust in Brookline was a great surprise: they make a very good pizza, thin and crispy. Ingredients are fresh and you can choose toppings from a decent sized list. Personnel is friendly and professional, the manager also spent some time talking to us.... More

Being from Jersey, and really knowing, good thin crust pizza, this place is the best!! Have never had good pizza outside of the metro area,,don't know what these guys are doing, but apparently they do!! My daughter, who now has relocated to Brookline, loves the "slice of day" or the "slice of the week". The only draw back for me,,... More

This is our family's favorite grab-a-slice pizza joint. I especially like the slices of the day with their Caesar salad. Hmmm, I think I've just made a lunch plan.
