Bloomington Indiana Pizza

Bloomington, Indiana is widely known for its massive pizza delivery market. In normal towns of 60,000 to 80,000 people, your pizza market may range from 3-5 million dollars as a whole. Bloomington IN has a 12 million dollar pizza market per year. This town is mad for their pizza pies. Every September, nearly 40, 000 Indiana University students roll into Bloomington. IU students fuel the need for so many food delivery businesses. They help to keep ovens fired up in over 30 different pizza locations. You can get Pizza Hut and Papa John’s pizza anywhere. To get a true taste of Bloomington, Indiana Pizza try a locally owned favorite. Ranging from thin cracker like crusts to Deep dish and doughy pies, Bloomington IN knows and loves its pizza. If you are staying in a Bloomington IN Hotel, you should try one of these pizzerias while you are visiting in town: Avers Pizza, Mother Bears Pizza, Rockits Pizza.


With over 30 different toppings and 9 different sauces (tomato sauce and 8 others!), you can’t find a place with as many options. The Crust is all pan-style, so it’s a little thicker than most. It tastes unlike any other in town. At Avers Pizza you have to try something different while you are here visiting. With outside the box toppings like broccoli, spinach, gyro, and shrimp! The limits are virtually endless. Try a different sauce in combination with some of these gourmet toppings: Spinach Lemon Pesto, Basil Pesto, a Spicy Cilantro pesto, Alfredo and a Garlic and Herb Sauce, Barbecue Sauce, A creamy Zaziki (cucumber sauce), Spicy Buffalo Sauce and Oh yea…Tomato sauce. They have at least a dozen Signature Pizzas that are scarily delicious, some unlike any combination you may have had before. Avers Pizza has a Gyro pizza using the Zaziki sauce, tomatoes and onions, tastes exactly like a gyro! When you are visiting Bloomington IN, you HAVE to try Avers Cream and Crimson pizza. Alfredo sauce, roasted red potatoes, Bacon, cheddar, and gorgonzola cheese. Unreal! One of the best pizzas I have ever had.

They are usually quite busy being located in the middle of Bloomington’s bar scene. They are well known in town for their slice sales when the bars are hopping.

They do have a limited delivery area, but deliver to most hotels in Bloomington IN located near the center of town. This pizza place has gone through many transitions throughout their many years in the Bloomington pizza scene. If you are visiting in Bloomington, IN and are a pizza fan, you should stop in and grab a slice while downtown.

These are my favorite 3 locally owned Bloomington Pizza shops. IF you happen to stop into the wonderful South Central town of Bloomington IN and love to experience unique pizza, try one or all of these three. We all know what Papa John’s and Dominos pizza taste like. It is commercially and viably accepted as pizza. No doubt. However, nothing can compare with the Cream and Crimson from Aver’s Pizza, or even the Spinoccoli from Mother Bears. And each of these pizza shops offer the traditional toppings like pepperoni and sausage as well, so it caters to traditionalists in the pizza world too. If you are visiting any of Bloomington IN hotels, you will be able to take stories back to friends of having the best pizza in Bloomington IN outside of Chicago or New York.
