10 of Maine's Most Iconic Pizza Spots

View as Map

We're kicking off Pizza Week 2014 with a map of 10 of Maine's most iconic pizza spots. Some of these have been around for over 60 years, while others are quite new. Some have multiple locations; others just one. They are spread throughout the state and offer up a variety of pizza styles.

While these 10 are arguably the state's most famous, don't fret too much if your favorite didn't make the list (but do tell us in the comments). We'll have another map of reader favorites later this week. This list is in no particular order.

93 Alfred St
Biddeford, ME 04005
(207) 283-0002
Visit Website
This Biddeford institution for over 50 years can serve 1000 of their famous 10" pies on a busy day. Some will tell you to request the old oven for your pizza, but the new one does a fine bake job, too. Cash only.

2. Angelone's

Copy Link
768 Main St
Westbrook, ME 04092
(207) 854-9122
Angelone's began on Portland's Veranda Street back in 1947. The simple shop (which has a sister location on Washington Ave. in Portland) offers three sizes of excellent pizza, a drink cooler and bags of chips. That's about it. Cash only.

3. Pizza Joint

Copy Link
448 Forest Ave
Portland, ME 04101
(207) 797-3192
Visit Website
In business since 1977, Pizza Joint offers pies in six sizes, from 8" to the monster 20". The pepperoni is applied liberally and might be the best around. There's also a South Portland location.

4. Pizza Villa

Copy Link
940 Congress St
Portland, ME 04102
(207) 774-1777
The Regios brothers crank out 10-inch "Greek-style" pies from the original oven that their father installed in 1965. Order at the counter and eat in the family-friendly dining room, or take your pizza over to the connected old-school bar.

5. Flatbread Company

Copy Link
72 Commercial St
Portland, ME 04101
(207) 772-8777
Visit Website
The pizzas may not be traditional (they're not even called pizzas), but the organic ingredients and wood-fired clay oven produce a unique and delicious product. Right on the water, too.

6. Micucci's Grocery

Copy Link
45 India St
Portland, ME 04101
(207) 775-1854
Visit Website
The bakery serves giant Sicilian-style rectangle slices at lunch time. The pillowy, slightly charred dough, sweet sauce, light sprinkling of cheese and drizzle of olive oil combine for an exceptional pizza that has earned national acclaim.

576 Congress St
Portland, ME 04101
(207) 773-7099
