When I think of Little Italy’s one thing comes to mind: late nighting. The only time I have visited this Auburn renowned pizza palace before midnight was during Camp War Eagle freshman year. Little Italy’s is a great choice after a night out as it stays open until the early hours of the morning, 2 am to be exact. Did I mention it’s also right downtown? Score. Hit up Little Italy’s if you want a single or double slice (or a whole pizza). Personal faves include a simple cheese slice with pesto.
Another great choice for late nighting, Domino’s is perfect if you just want to get home and have a pizza or another delicious menu option delivered to your doorstep. Domino’s is known for its $5 medium pizzas. Definitely take advantage of this great deal ASAP. Domino’s is also perfect for a Monday night Bachelorette viewing party with your roomies. Have it delivered so you don’t miss a single second of the “most dramatic season yet!”
This pizza place is new to the Auburn scene, but already making huge moves. Go to Pieology if you want to construct your ideal build your own pizza with so many yummy toppings.

Uncle Maddio’s falls into the same category as Pieology. It’s another great place to custom build your ideal pizza. The prices here are lower than those of Pieology.

Surprisingly Mellow Mushroom is probably one of the more formal pizza places in Auburn. Though it has a laid back atmosphere, it’s the only pizza joint where you are waited on. Mellow Mushroom’s eclectic and art-filled environment makes it feel unique to Auburn though it’s actually a chain restaurant found all around the US. Personal faves include parmesan pretzels, Greek salad, and any calzone.
Papa John’s is another great choice for pizza and stands out because it is located on campus, right in the heart of the student center.
