Who knew New Hampshire’s capital city could be home to some of the best pizza places in New England?
That’s right; believe it or not, Concord is one of the best places for some great pizza in New Hampshire.
It’s one of New Hampshire’s only metropolitan areas, making it the perfect place for the state’s best pizza chefs to set up shop and work their magic for the central New Hampshire community.
Plus, many people drive past the city of Concord on their way to and from the White Mountains, making it the perfect place to stop for a delicious pizza.
So next time you’re driving past the gold roof of the State House on the highway and are thinking of stopping for a bite, tell Uno Pizzeria and Olive Garden to step aside. These locally owned establishments in Concord NH will blow you away!
Here are the best pizza restaurants and some of my favorite spots in New Hampshire’s capital city.

Recently voted best pizza in the area, Vinnie’s Pizzaria doesn’t mess around!
It’s your typical pizza parlor, but the food is to die for. They have all of the best kinds of toppings and flavors, and have the perfect cheese to sauce ratio.
What’s great about this place is that they have an ongoing customer appreciation promotion. 2 large cheese pizzas are only $21.99, which is a hard price to come by nowadays!
Whether you’re driving through Concord or sticking around for a bit, make sure you pay a visit to Vinnie’s.
