Lost Town Billy Pie Pizza / 1010 E. Main St.

Lost Town Billy Pie Pizza is a brick-fired pizza joint located inside the taproom at Basic City Beer Co., open until 9 pm Tuesday-Saturday, and until 7 pm on Sunday. Lost Town Billy Pie serves up a refreshingly simple menu with choices like red pizza topped with pepperoni, mozzarella and basil, smoked sausage, and prosciutto and arugula, or white pizza topped with ricotta and mushroom, sausage, or Calabrian pepper that can be ordered online for curbside pickup. If there’s someone in your party who doesn’t care for pizza, you can add items like sandwiches from Basic City’s Showroom menu as well. Lost Town hand-made pizzas are special because they use local and high-quality ingredients and the pizza is baked to perfection inside a 700-degree oven.

Benny Stivale’s / 328 W. Main St.

Each Benny’s location has a unique name. The word “stivales” means rain boots in Italian, the name was chosen for the Waynesboro location because high water along the South River has occasionally required protective footwear. Benny Stivale’s specializes in giant 28-inch pizzas that can be ordered as whole pies or by the slice. This relatively smaller serving still requires two plates to hold it! Choose from tasty flavors like garlic mushroom, meatball marinara, or Italian sausage, as well as the monthly special flavors with names like “Concrete Jungle” or “The Versace.” Pizzas are made with high-quality ingredients grown and farmed in the U.S. Benny’s offers online ordering, or if you’re dining at the restaurant, Benny’s also boasts a “secret beer garden,” which serves the best offerings from breweries in the 151 corridor. You can also get a heart-shaped pizza for Valentine’s Day or participate in the Benny’s challenge, in which a single person attempts to eat an entire pizza as quickly as possible. The current amateur record is 28 minutes. Different rules apply for pros.
