Worth going out of your way for.

This pizza is so good that it's worth going our of your way for. The specialty pizzas are particularly good. If you prefer traditional, no worries. The sauce is chunky with good flavour and not too salty. There is also a great beer selection.

Having relocated from the Chicago suburbs to Central Wisconsin, (Madison area and there abouts) we have determined that what Wisconsin Pizza places excell in is creative combinations, they loose in the basics. That changes for The Glass Niclel Pizza Co. There is hardly anything that can't be found on a Glass Nickel Pizza. The Chili-Cheese-Fry Pie was this weeks special!... More

Glass Nickle has some of the best pizza in Madison. You can several types of additional items to your pizza should you wish it, I suggest extra basil. An the gluten free crust choice is decent, should you need it.

In Madison for high school football, comfy in our hotel room watching the afternoon game when the desire for pizza hit. I had heard commercials for the GNP on the radio and called the one I thought was closest to our hotel. It was at noon on Thursday and the clerk said the pizza, with soda pop, paper plates and...

Ordered pizza in one night at the Residence Inn on recommendation of desk clerk. It was quick, hot and really great. The toppings were plentiful and tasty..and fresh. Crust was just right and the sauce was way above average delivered pizza. Price was reasonable. I'll call again next time I'm in Middleton/Madison.

Super pizza, fast, friendly takeout service. Definitely recommend. They deliver to all the hotels near the interstate so it's perfect for one night layovers.

Stayed in Middleton, Wi for a weekend conference. Ordered a pizza and salad for delivery to my hotel from Glass Nickel. Ordering by phone was friendly, quick and easy. They deliver right to your room! It arrived early, in about 30 minutes- they said it could be 45 or so. Was exactly what I ordered, hot and very good. They... More

We actually had Glass Nickel pizza delivered to our hotel after a full day on the road. I'm fairly certain that they were at the end of their night, (we got held up by road construction, and arrived hours later than expected), but they gladly made and delivered a delicious pizza to a STARVING family, and we were very greatful....
