If you have never tried a Greg’s Pizza, you have never had a REAL pizza! Greg’s Pizza is a small locally owned shop with only a handful of locations in the U.S. One of their popular stores resides in Johnson City, TN.
They offer delicous pepperoni pizza (and other toppings of course), as well as a delicious spaghetti meal.
Why Greg’s Pizza Makes the Best Pizza in the World
I have eaten at so many pizza places over the years. We have the big pizza places such as Little Caesars, Papa John’s, Pizza Hut, Fox’s Pizza, Dominoes, and more. I have not only tried most major pizza companies, but I have also tried countless other smaller “mom and pop” pizza places both locally and abroad when vacationing. They are all good in their own way.
However, none of the other places even come close to competing with a little place called Greg’s Pizza. This place makes the best pizzas I have ever eaten in my life! They also make a great spaghetti meal as well.
First, they create a lovely round pie (small or large). The workers can usually be seen tossing it in the window. The crust is always fairly thin and soft, and the edge does not contain a large amount of crust either. So you don’t get an overly breaded taste like with Papa Johns.
Next, they add just the right amount of sauce to make it ooze out when you take a bite. I always ask for some extra sauce, because it is the best pizza sauce ever.
Then they add the toppings you order (I usually go for pepperoni only), and then they literally smother it with the most delicious and rich tasting mozzarella cheese. Then, they finish it by cutting it into rectangular pieces (which is rare for pizza because most are cut in triangular shapes). Then they stuff it in a brown box, and on your way you go!
I will say a couple of things. First, they are a smidgen on the greasy side, but hey, live a little! It takes great. Also, they aren’t as cheap as other pizza joints, but don’t you get what you pay for? They aren’t overpriced in the least either.
Just call and in about 15-20 minutes you are on your way to the best pizza that has ever flirted with your taste buds. And the guys inside are always friendly as well, so you get great service to boot.

Where Can I Buy a Greg’s Pizza, and How Much Do They Cost?
I bought the above pizza for under $13-15 tax included, so it is very reasonable. The large is a couple of dollars more (around $15-18 tax included) Sure, you can get a Little Caesar’s pizza for around $5 at this time, but you will WANT to pay the extra money. It is worth every penny and then some! Keep in mind, you get what you pay for! I would probably pay upwards of $20 if I had to (I know, sad isn’t it).
This is NOT a nationwide company, and according to the box there are only a handful of locations. It gives these locations:
- Johnson City, Tennessee
- Elizabethton, Tennessee
- Elkhart, Indiana (3)
