2. Post Office Pies
Post Office Pies has some of the best pizza in Birmingham, and I’d even go so far to say there Margherita pizza is the best I’ve ever had. Topped with juicy roasted baby tomatoes, buffalo mozzarella, light sauce and fresh basil, this pizza is bursting with flavors.

Pizza Grace is a brand-new pizzeria at Mercantile on Morris in Birmingham that you have to try out. What sets Pizza Grace apart from the competition? It’s the dough. They use a three-ingredient, naturally leavened dough, which is responsible for the pizza’s well-textured and flavorful crust.
