I always get the pollogo pesto. If you like pesto, garlic, chicken, and cheese this is the pizza for you and not to mention the crust of course is spot on. I am sure every other pizza they make is just as great, I just haven't gotten past eating any other kind yet because I am hooked on this one.... More

We were planning on a visit to a different pizza "joint" nearby...a place that was getting a lot of hype. But, the "hype" place had a long wait for a table. So, we visited the Upper Crust as an alternative and it was a very good decision. At Upper Crust you order from the counter and just find your own... More

Had pizza there for a group of 8. Overall the pizza was good and the sauce was excellent. Would definitely return to this place if back in the area.

Best pizza I've ever had, thin crust is great! Thank you to the driver for making the effort to get a warm pizza to our guest house.

Love their pizza and the wide variety of fixings. You can customize your individual choices. Even make each half different. My wife's favorite is all white 4 cheeses with no sauce & mine is Carmelized onions with grilled chicken. We love their thin crust. They also have great salads.

I stopped in for a quick slice and although I would have liked to order a custom slice I was told my options were for only a few choices. The slice of the day was very good and worth the pick. Nice beer choice as well.

I don't know what it is about this place... the crisp but chewy crust... the just-a-touch-sweet sauce... the perfect cheese... but it's my absolute favorite in the area. keeps me coming back over and over again. a local institution.

The pizza wars are heating up in Coolidge Corner with two gourmet pizza places across from one another. I prefer Upper Crust as they use more traditional toppings while the pizza place across the street has more off beat toppings. Upper Crust offer a slice of the month, slice of the day, cheese and pepperoni. Of course you can order... More

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 an... 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.
