It's National Pizza Day and we're celebrating here at WBKR with my list of the Top Five Pizza Places Within Driving Distance of Owensboro.

Now, here's the scoop.  There are no Owensboro pizza parlors on this list.  I love some of our local pizza places, but these are places folks in the WBKR listening area eat at all the time.  Places like 54 Pizza Express, Fetta, Pizz-A-Roma, and Brickhouse Pizza.  All delicious, but all readily available.

So, I'm giving you a list of places you have to drive to.  But, trust me . . . these pizza places ROCK and are totally worth a road trip!  So, here we go!

Honorable Mention:  Wick's Pizza Parlor in Louisville


Absolutely delicious and I highly suggest zipping up to Louisville and crashing the Wick's location on Bardstown Road.  The pizza is monstrous and insanely good.  The only negative . . . two or three slices and you'll feel like you're carting around an Italian food baby.  But, trust me.  It's SO worth conception.

#5-  Clifton's Pizza Company- Louisville


An absolute favorite of mine when I was in college!  Cliftons Pizza Co. is located on Frankfort Avenue in Louisville and serves up delicious pizza, pasta, subs and garlic sticks.  Situated in an very trendy and quirky neighborhood, Cliftons is trendy and quirky in its own right.  There are clocks, all set to different times, all over the walls.  But one taste of their delicious pizza and time will absolutely stand still.

#4- Solorzano's Bros. Pizzeria- Siesta Key, Florida

Okay!  I get it.  Siesta Key, Florida is a LONG drive, but I've made it many times for vacation.  And this is one reason why!  Sure, the white-sand beaches of Siesta Key are alluring enough, but nothing caps the day off like a pizza pie from Solorzano's.  They claim "Nobody makes pizza like we do."  And they're right.  So, load up the car and head south.  Way south!


#3- Impellizeri's- Louisville

Simply put . . . Impellizeri's, with three locations in Louisville, has the absolute BEST breadstix in the world.  And the pizza is incredible too.  And so is that homemade Italian dressing.  And, well, you get the point!

#2-  Turoni's For-Get-Me-Not-Inn- Evansville


There are several Turoni's locations in the tristate and the food is great at all of them.  But if you want atmosphere combined with delicious flavor, you have to hit up Turoni's For-Get-Me-Not-Inn.  It's magnificent.

#1-  Bonnie & Clyde's- Louisville

An absolute throwback to old school pizza parlors.  They still don't take credit cards.  They serve sodas by the pitcher.  And you have to sit banquet-table style with complete strangers.  And it's freaking amazing!!  I could type for days about why you should jump in the car right now and head to Dixie Hwy in Louisville, but nothing will convince you more than doing it.  Go!  Now!  And enjoy.

Happy Pizza Day!
