Sometimes you need a break from lobster (OK, we don't, but we can imagine other people might), and pizza is always a good go-to. From a family favorite to authentic, Neapolitan wood-fired pies, Nantucket is surprisingly rich in pizza options for a small island. When you're staying at one of our boutique Nantucket hotels, consider these three places to enjoy some of the best pizza on Nantucket.
Located in a quintessentially Nantucket shingle-sided cottage, Pi Pizza is known for its Neapolitan wood-fired pizzas. This means dough and sauce made from scratch every day and a 900 degree pizza oven. You can expect thin, chewy dough and simple toppings. The rest of the menu continues the theme with pastas and Italian classics like minestrone and chicken parm. The wood-paneled dining room is cozy, with a large bar that has a focus on Italian drinks.
Sophie T's is a longtime Nantucket favorite, open since 2000. The pizza is standard New York-style, with giant, floppy slices and a thin crust. You can eat in the homey dining room or order take out to enjoy in your room at our Nantucket boutique hotels (https://www.larkhotels.com/city/nantucket/). Sophie T's is affordable, not pretentious, and makes a mean pie, so it has a place in any Nantucketers heart.
Started in a small shack on the waterfront (think Nantucket Nectars), Oath Pizza now has 12 locations and a food truck. Serving "craft pizza," Oath uses high-quality, seasonal ingredients and natural meats. This is a great pizza shop for those who like to get creative with combinations, like truffled mushrooms and banh mi toppings. Order at the shack and enjoy your pizza at the few tables overlooking Nantucket harbor, making Oath Pizza the most scenic pizza on Nantucket.
