Here’s the best pizzeria in town according to ‘Pizza Connoisseurs of Columbus’

Sav McKee

There’s a local Facebook group that shares slices of information regarding the best pizza in Columbus. Pizza Connoisseurs of Columbus, with 61,806 group members, may just sound like an average group of pizza aficionados, but their recommendations are taken very seriously around town.

Every year, the group’s admin posts a poll on Facebook, where the thousands of members vote on the best pizza shops of the year. Honestly, this is my version of the Super Bowl. The enthusiasm of the people and their pizza is contagious.

This year, the “2023 Pizza Shop of Year” accolade goes to none other than JT’s Pizza & Pub, located at 2390 W Dublin Granville Rd. “I know when I personally go there, I have to park on Sawmill because they are always so busy,” said group admin, Nakimba Mullins. 


JT’s Pizza & Pub is locally owned by Joe Hartnett, and their website emphasizes that they’re committed to using only high quality, fresh ingredients, while still providing large portions at a low cost. 

“WE WON! THANK YOU to everyone who has supported us over the years, especially helping us win the ‘2023 Pizza Shop of the Year’ from Pizza Connoisseurs of Columbus. Thank you to Nakimba Mullins and all the admins and contributors for all the hard work they put into PCOC. Thank you to all of our loyal customers, who have always rallied behind us! Thank you to our fantastic staff, who are the reason we are successful and the heart of JT’s…And congratulations to every Pizza Shop that made the list! You all challenge us to keep doing better, and we enjoy being patrons of all of your shops as well. The Columbus Pizza community is amazing!” JT’s posted on their Facebook.
