#70 Fellini’s, Atlanta (Fellini's Special)

Some have noted the dough can get a bit dense and chewy, and there are those who would argue that Atlanta’s pizza newcomers like Antico and Varasano’s have far surpassed this institution, but these New York-style slices still have appeal. Here’s what you need to do with anyone who takes issue with this pick: Ask them to take you to each of the others they suggest are better all in the same day some Friday night after work, and end your day with a few drinks and a Fellini’s Special (pepperoni, mushrooms, Italian sausage, onions, meatballs, green peppers, black olives, green olives, and extra cheese). As many local pizza joints across America will similarly echo in the face of the Neapolitan fascination, this landmark still has a few tricks up its sleeve — namely, a truly satisfying end-of-night slice.
