Good thing Gatlinburg is home to plenty of delicious pizza restaurants that you don’t want to miss out on! No matter the occasion, we know you’ll have a great time visiting with your closest friends and family. Here are 5 Gatlinburg pizza places to visit for your next vacation:

1. Big Daddy’s Pizzeria

Fresh ingredients and hand-crafted dough are turned into world-class pizza at Big Daddy’s Pizzeria! Big Daddy’s uses a 550-degree, wood-fire flame, one-of-a-kind brick oven to perfectly cook each pie. The restaurant’s own “pizzeoli” makes a homemade dough that’s then covered with homemade sauce and the highest-quality ingredients. The result is a classic Neapolitan style pizza with a delicious, crispy crust.
