We have yet to meet anyone who doesn't like pizza - if you're out there, who are you?!? Luckily, with Bethany Beach, Delaware quickly becoming the foodie destination of the Eastern Shore, we've got some pretty stellar choices for pizza. From traditional to deep dish, straight-up (authentic) Italian to gourmet Neapolitan and true, “Woo-hoo, I’m at the beach!” pies, you really can't go wrong no matter what your favorite type of pizza is – and there’s always room (and awesome options here) to expand your pizza horizons, even for the most discerning critic (read: kids).
For those of us who prefer the healthy/local touch, some of the restaurants on our list – in true Bethany Beach fashion – source the freshest, local, ingredients and ensure that each pie is made to perfection...they’re true artisans. Best part? While you will need some patience in the high season to enjoy your mouth-watering perfection, they won’t break the bank!
Read on, try them out (tell 'em we sent ya) and let us know who YOU think has the best pizza in Bethany Beach! Please note that we’ve listed these alphabetically so as not to show preference ;-)
Armand's Pizza By The Sea
33548 Market Pl #2, Bethany Beach, DE 19930
If you’re from (or familiar with) the DC area, you know Armand’s – and those locations are quickly dwindling. But, never fear – we have one right here in Bethany! Located in the Sea Colony Marketplace, Armand’s has deep dish (Chicago style) and regular pizza along with subs and Italian dishes (and highly reviewed prices on pitchers of beer). They have plenty of indoor and outdoor seating and even deliver if you’re too tuckered to head out to eat! Oh, and reviewers love the awesome owners.

Grotto’s in West Bethany is a (large) full-service restaurant and sports bar – best part? They’ve got a pretty awesome arcade for the kiddos (and young at heart). Especially on rainy beach days, you can easily kill a couple to a few hours eating, drinking and playing without having to deal with the, constant “Ma, I’m bored…” And, they deliver too with easy online ordering!
20N Pennsylvania Ave, Bethany Beach, DE 19930
For a sit-down, artisan experience that includes a full bar, local craft beers and unique wines, the go-to choice for anyone who knows is Pie. Not only do they have an amazing assortment of pizza pies, they also have decadent dessert pies too…AND, according to one reviewer, Pie has the best gluten-free pizza ever – hands down! Speaking of reviews (and ratings) – high marks all-around for Pie. If, for some unspeakable reason, you can’t find something that sparks your interest on their regular menu, they also have a whole ‘build-your-own’ pizza menu! Oh, and awesome salads too (in case you want more than wine and pizza).
101 Garfield Pkwy Unit 10, Bethany Beach, DE 19930
Want REAL Italian pizza? Like flashback to Tuscany Italian pizza? Then Pomodoro’s is the place to go – locals and visitors alike rave about the authentic deliciousness (not to mention variety) of their pizzas! With awesome reviews and ratings across the board, you really can’t go wrong grabbing a ‘za or two from Pomodoro’s. Do note that Pomodoro’s is a grab-n-go type of place; no tables – just a few stools to people-watch out the window eating a slice while you wait for your ‘to-go’ order. And, in the summer, call ahead! If you’re ordering whole pies, there will be quite a wait, so save yourself the hassle, give them a jingle on the jangle and then take a stroll on the beach or boards before heading over to get your order. Oh, and the owners are super friendly too!

While only open during ‘the season’, Surf’s Up offers subs, pizza and wings (among other things). Folks across the review boards love their cheesesteaks and pizza – like die-hard love. In fact, an editorial producer for Travel + Leisure, who has been vacationing in Bethany Beach annually for decades, says this is the place for beach eats, bar none! Grab a pie and pic-nic on the beach – or stay in the sit-in restaurant to avoid sand on your slice.
Try one, try all - Bethany Beach has pizza to fit every taste! Who's your fave? We want to know!
