Springfield has long had a reputation for being the birthplace of Springfield-style Cashew Chicken and for its plethora of Chinese food restaurants, but over the years, the SGF has also become quite the pizza town.
From thick crust to thin crust and longtime staples to new pies in town, Springfield is certainly the place to be for pizza. Here are seven of the best spots in the city to grab a slice — or two.
The Perfect Pie — Clockwise from top: Bruno's Italian Ristorante, PaPPo's Pizzeria & Pub, The Brick Slice House (RIP), WannaGetta PIZZA, McSalty's Pizza Cafe, Pizza House, The Big Slice NY Style Pizzeria and Garbo's Pizzeria.

Garbo's just celebrated 25 years in Springfield and there's a reason they've been around so long — excellent thin crust pizza and killer salads.
