You’ve heard of New York-style pizza and Chicago Deep dish but the pizzas at Matthew’s Pizzeria in Baltimore refuse to be put in a box (figuratively speaking- they’re small, only 8 inches for a small and 10 inches for a large). The crust is thick, but not as thick as deep dish. Some have claimed that they follow the New England style of Greek pizza but whatever way you slice it (see what I did there?) their pizza is some of the best I’ve ever had. Rumor has it that they have a bit of lard in the dough, which is no surprise because it is decadently buttery.
I went for a small crab pizza, which wasloaded with crab and absolutely delicious. It’s easy to see why, since 1943, this has been Baltimore’s classic pizza spot. You might even be unironically called “hon” by one of the friendly waitresses.
Matthew’s Pizzeria is located at 3131 Eastern Ave, Baltimore.
