A Guide to Indy's Mom + PopPizza 🍕 Joints

In honor of National Pizza Day (it was this week, and I know I dropped the ball but why can't every day be Pizza Day?

I'm doing two gift card giveaways on my instagram account for $25 each to your favorite joint on the list! (Giveaway starts today 2/10/2021 and the winner will be announced Friday 2/12/2021 in the evening on my IG stories!) @kellisellsindy

I’ve selected a few must-try local- to-Indianapolis pizza joints to share with y'all below!

As you guys may know, part of my goal here at Kelli Sells Indy is to highlight local businesses in our community, and to encourage you all to join me on my quest so support our local . So without further ado, let's dive right into a list of my local favorite joints, in no particular order, shall we?

Photo from Chatham Tap’s Yelp page (www.yelp.com/biz/chatham-tap-mass-ave-indianapolis)


Chatham Tap offers more than pizza, but their “Robert Browning” pizza is well worthy of making this list. (Pictured above) however it's usually topped with a handful of mixed greens opposed to spinach as in the picture. Toppings: Cappicola ham, Genoa salami, pepperoni, banana peppers, mixed greens, with Italian dressing. Be sure to get an order of wings with the "house" sauce. One of my favorite meals in town!
