Moms’ 12 Favorite Pizza Spots | In & Around Cedar Rapids

Pizza is always a fan favorite food. We’re lucky Cedar Rapids boasts a great selection of specialty pizza places to snag a slice (or 3!). From dill pickle and sriracha BLT to classic pepperoni and chicken alfredo, there is something for everyone! We asked a few moms what their favorite place to savor a slice of pizza is.

Here are our 12 favorite pizza spots in & around Cedar Rapids:

Need Pizza

Why moms love it: “Unique pizza, unlike anything else you will find in Cedar Rapids. Choose from an array of unique toppings like mashed potatoes, clams, and artichokes or keep it traditional with sausage, pepperoni, and roasted red pepper. For those with food allergies or dietary restrictions they have gluten free crust and vegan cheese too!”

Our favorite: Classic Pepperoni.

Bop’s Pizza

Why moms love it: “They have great lunch specials and always have exciting new specialty pizzas. I especially enjoy the cheeseburger pizza!”

Our favorite: Jalapeno Popper.

Pizza World

Our favorite: Ciao Bella


Why moms love it: “It’s here to deliver a level of quality that many pizza places don’t strive for. It’s pricier but for a reason. It’s where we go to treat ourselves – you can taste the difference!”
