3 Outstanding pizza places near Regent’s campus

We all have those nights — the kind where you are too tired to cook or have too many people to cook for. Maybe you and your friends want to go out, but Applebee’s and IHOP have lost their appeal.  Your mind goes to pizza, and the more you think about it, the better it sounds.

Now, we all know Little Caesar’s is the cheapest and closest to campus, but maybe you’d like to try something new.  Thankfully, this year’s Best of Hampton Roads contest recently provided a list of the best pizza places in Chesapeake. The best part is that all three winners are less than 15 minutes from Regent’s campus.

Why not go ahead and give them a try?

BONUS: Salvatore’s Pizzeria Italian Restaurant – As a life-long Virginia Beach resident, I can attest to Salvatore’s Italian Restaurant as one of the best places to get pizza.

Home of the 24” pizza, not only does Salvatore’s have some amazing New York style pizza, but customers eating in benefit from free side dishes. Patrons receive complementary garlic knots and zeppoles (dessert) during lunch time, and both of those as well as bruschetta at dinner.
