Milwaukee is glad Pizza Man is back. We are, too. Pizza Man has been tossing innovative pizzas as well as traditional Italian recipes since 1970. And though the original Pizza Man on North Avenue burned down in 2010, the new locations strive to honor the Milwaukee icon's 40-year tradition of high-quality pizza and fresh Italian dishes. The one of a kind pizzas, featuring tantalizing topping combinations like the meatball, the Capricciosa, the lamb sausage or the Avantgardener, are to die for – and a good part of the reason why Pizza Man has won over both OnMilwaukee readers and the OnMilwaukee editors.
Editors' pick: Pizza Man
Lori Fredrich's pick: Wy'East Pizza
For the second year running, my vote goes solidly to Wy’East Pizza, a newcomer that has won me over with its delicious slow-fermented crust, which is best enjoyed hot out of the oven. It’s crisp on the exterior and chewy on the interior and topped with great, fresh ingredients in inventive combinations. I can’t seem to get enough of the Hot Marmot, but I’ve also had really good luck ordering the seasonal specials, which are always well-designed.
