Pizza is one of the most popular foods in the world and Michigan has some tasty pizza places to try out.

Georgio’s, placed right at the end of Downtown Rochester, has a welcoming statue of a man with pizza in his hand. When entering the building, there’s a classic little dining place to sit and eat. The atmosphere was great with the clean building and kind employees to greet you.

To make the pizza it takes about 15 to 20 minutes whether it be dine-in or take out. The pizza itself looks presentable and the taste backs up the looks of the slice.

The pizza was at a perfect temperature with a crunchy crust on the outside and soft on the inside. The pepperoni has a nice taste to it and helps make the pizza better, but the sauce is a liability. There is not as much sauce in the pizza, and the little sauce in the pizza does not have much taste, but the cheese is a very good texture.

My overall rating of the pizza is a 3.5/5 stars as there is still work to be done to improve the quality of the pizza. 

Vince & Joe’s is an Italian market placed in Vitale plaza on 25 mile and Van Dyke. It is a huge market with a wide variety of foods from countries around the world. They have areas where they sell baked goods, seafood, meat and pizza. 

The pizza tastes like a slice straight out of Italy. From the cheese to the pepperoni to the dough and crust– it tasted amazing. 

The only flaws to work on are getting rid of the grease and to make the crust a little more crunchy. 

My overall rating would be a 5/5 even with the grease problem. Out of the two pizza places, Vincent Joes is the best pizza out of the 2.

If you ever need a slice of pizza or need some pizza for dinner, Vincent Joes is your go-to.
