Pizza Guide – Western MA

With football back in full swing, there is no better way to spend a fall Sunday than on the couch watching all of the action. When it comes to a food that we love to pair with football Sunday, we think there is no better choice than pizza. In this guide, we touch upon some of our favorite pizza spots in Western Massachusetts.


Everyone loves a good old cheese pizza right? Well, how about a french fry, ranch, and bacon pizza? Or maybe a sweet chili chicken pizza? Peppa’s has flavor combinations that will make your taste buds do cartwheels and backflips. One of our favorites is the “Maui Wowii.” This ‘za takes Hawaiian pizza to the next level by adding bourbon chicken and red onions to the mix.

If you are looking for a late night slice, you can head to their sister location, Peppa’s Express in Springfield to satisfy those drunchies.


Famous amongst the many college students of UMass and the area’s surrounding schools, Antonio’s is open late and is always serving up fresh, hot pizza. With $1 slices between 12 and 2 A.M., that’s a deal fits into any broke college kid’s budget.

The star of the show here is the tortellini pizza. Tortellini on pizza?! It’s a combination that sounds so wrong, but is so right.

The Pizza Shoppe

There are many styles of pizza in this world. Deep dish, wood-fired, and New York-style to name a few. But one of the most underrated styles is the sweet crust. This is a delicacy where sugar is added to the pizza dough, offering a slight sweetness which compliments the acidity of the sauce and the richness of the cheese. The Pizzas Shoppe’s dough is light and soft, and for what it’s worth, we think it makes the perfect pizza for football Sunday.

To go along with a great pizza, they also have meaty wings served with a buffalo sauce that brings the right amount of heat. They have a kick, but don’t force you to chug your beer afterwards.
