Need more pizza in your life?

Hoodline crunched the numbers to find the best affordable pizza hot spots in Ellicott City, using both Yelp data and our own secret sauce to produce a ranked list of where to fill the bill.

1. The Beef Brothers Deli & Catering


Topping the list is The Beef Brothers Deli & Catering. Located at 10155 Baltimore National Pike, the deli and traditional American spot, which offers pizza and more, is the highest rated inexpensive pizza spot in Ellicott City, boasting four stars out of 99 reviews on Yelp. 

Look for one of the signature pies, like the Purple Football pizza, which can include any choice of one topping and comes with a purple crust. There are also other unique options like the Chesapeake Pizza, which is a New York-style pizza with lump crab meat and some Old Bay seasoning. Or go for the White pizza that has two cheeses, special olive oil and garlic sauce.

Yelper Will S. wrote, "The food here hasn't disappointed me so far. Their pizzas are delicious and their salads are always fresh. I've gotten a few sandwiches here also and they have been very good as well."

2. Trattoria Amore


Next up is Trattoria Amore, situated at 4725 Dorsey Hall Dr. With four stars out of 84 reviews on Yelp, the Italian spot, which offers pizza and more, has proven to be a local favorite for those looking for a budget-friendly option. 

Opened for 14 years, the Ellicott City spot is one of the restaurant’s three locations. Trattoria Amore serves New York-style pizza with hand-tossed round thin crust with cheese and your choice of toppings, including sausage, pepperoni, mushrooms, onions, diced tomatoes, green peppers, black olives and anchovies. They also offer a Sicilian pizza that has a thick, square crust with cheese and a white gourmet pizza that can be ordered with any number of toppings.

Corey W. said, "Pizza is awesome. The staff is wonderful. Highly recommend this place for a quick, delicious bite."

3. Upper Crust Pizzeria & Deli


Upper Crust Pizzeria & Deli, located at 8835 Centre Park Drive, Suite 103, is another top choice, with Yelpers giving the inexpensive halal spot, which offers pizza and chicken wings, four stars out of 74 reviews. 

Victor S. said, "This is the best pizza in the area, in my opinion. I judge good pizza based on how good the leftovers are and this place nails it. But it's their crust that I'm obsessed with."
