Community Pie

Located in the heart of downtown Chattanooga’s Central Business District, Community Pie is bringing both Neapolitan and New York Style pizzas to the South. The dough is made fresh on site, the pizzas are cooked in wood-fire ovens that were brought in from Italy, and the sauce is spiced well, with a bit of a bite. Tip: a bowl of the sauce comes with the garlic roll appetizer, or you can just ask your server for some to dip your pizza crusts in. Speaking of pizza crusts, Community Pie pizzas are all thin crust, crispy on the outside and soft and tender on the inside, just the way it’s done in both New York and Italy.
