At Plus 1 Pizza our pizzas are made from our original family recipe created in 1977. Plus 1 Pizza is a local family owned and operated, by the same family and we continue the same family traditions today. We take great pride in serving the highest quality products to our customers. Our pizzas are made with all-natural ingredients and do not contain any preservatives or artificial ingredients.

WeNEVER use any of the following in our pizzas:    No partially hydrogenated oils, corn syrup, artificial sweeteners, cellulose, MSG, BHT, BHA.

We only use the highest quality, fresh, whole, natural ingredients go into every pizza we make!

Ingredients with integrity

Great ingredients are key to a great pizza. We make our dough from scratch each morning – chose from thin or regular fresh homemade crust. Our dough is made from whole natural ingredients including extra virgin olive oil.  Our sauce is made from the ripest tomatoes and mixed with our unique spice blend each morning. We have two awesome homemade pizza sauces to choose from.  

Pizza Sauce
Our traditional family recipe pizza sauce, that is made from 100% natural fresh packed tomatoes , this fresh made pizza sauce is lightly seasoned to allow the naturally sweet tomatoes to be the heart of this pizza sauce and is just slightly on the sweeter side.

If you are looking for a pizza sauce that is more bold and spicy, we also have our bold Neapolitan sauce that has a much bolder flavor and with more seasoning. The bold Neapolitan sauce is more bold and is not sweet. Both sauces are homemade and are prepared fresh each day. Both are great sauces. It just depends on your preference of either a naturally sweeter sauce or bolder seasoned pizza sauce.  The choice is yours!

On top, our premium mozzarella and provolone cheese is shredded fresh to maximize freshness and never produced with fillers or dry powder milk.  Our cheese is a 100 % natural low-moisture cheese that has a little firmer texture made with real milk and is NOT watered down and mushy like you find at many other pizza places in town. The other places in town just won't use the highest quality cheese, because it is very expensive to put on a pizza. The highest quality and all 100% natural cheese makes for the best pizza! 

For toppings, our all-natural Italian sausage is prepared with a unique old-world family recipe. Unlike some competitors, our pepperoni and bacon are all natural, untouched by nitrates and fillers. To round out the flavor profile of our fresh made to order pizzas, we slice our fresh vegetables by hand each morning. You just can't make a great pizza without using the freshest and natural ingredients in every pizza.

Our Pizza
What goes into our pizza is what makes the difference


Do you know the real story behind what makes Plus 1 Pizza taste so unique?  We are a small family operated pizzeria.  Staying a small family owned pizzeria enables us to be independent and free to constantly find and source only the best ingredients possible. This enables us to create new recipes for our customers using only the freshest and all natural ingredients.  

As a locally owned and family operated pizzeria, we are free to purchase only the best ingredients.  

We're family owned and operated and able to do what is best for our customer, we choose only the freshest and highest quality ingredients.

We understand that if you’re going to build a masterpiece, you better start with all the best materials! Sauce made from fresh, vine-ripened tomatoes, authentic Italian sausage, select pepperoni made from a special family recipe, premium Italian cheeses, and fresh crispy veggies; we specially select and source each ingredient that goes into our pizzas. Simply put, our pizza is as great as the ingredients that go in it, fresh all natural ingredients go into every pizza.


At Plus 1 Pizza, we don’t follow the crowd. We still make dough from scratch, fresh every morning in the back of our kitchens from the same homemade family recipe that has been handed down for over three generations. We use only the best spring wheat that money can buy. Sure, it costs more to make our dough this way, but it’s our way of giving you the freshest tasting, lightest texture, and most flavorful crust with every pizza we sell.

Dough lays the groundwork for our pizza. It’s where it all starts, so we make sure our dough is the best foundation for our homemade fresh made pizza.


Plus 1 Pizza’s sauce is prepared from rich natural tomatoes packed fresh within hours after being picked from the vine. Plus 1 Pizza’s sauce is freshly prepared every morning with a secret blend of spices passed down over 38 years ago from father to son, and finally to his grandchildren.

Family pride and quality tradition in the preparation of our pizza continues today and is our way to give our customers a pizza sauce prepared fresh daily from fresh packed natural tomatoes.


Great pizza starts with a great blend of premium Italian cheeses. Plus 1 Pizza uses only a premium blend of real Italian cheeses that is never frozen.

The result is a creamy, smooth, melt-in-your-mouth taste that gets your taste buds working. One taste of our premium Italian cheese and you will agree that fresh is always better then frozen and real is better than artificial. Our cheese is the best money can buy and with one taste we think you’ll agree.


We don’t skip on toppings by using a bunch of meat fillers and paper-thin pepperoni slices like so many others; we only use premium meat toppings that have a robust flavor. 

We only use fresh vegetables, cut daily by hand in our kitchens, the same way we’ve done it for over 38 years. Using only generous portions of quality meats and fresh vegetables is our way to bring you the best and freshest pizza in Athens.  Find out more about our service and making our customers smile.

Word Up... What People Say About Us

"This pizza has been perfect everytime, so absolutely delicious I would suggest the bold neopolitan pizza sauce on a thin crust with spicy pepperoni! So good!! Thank you Athens plus one pizza!" - Earl Wood

“ I love their pizza..... I think they quite possibly have the best pizza I have ever had. Their sauce is a little sweeter which I love, and the crust is delicious as well.  Everything is always perfect when I order. Give them a shot, they might just become your new favorite.

“This place is great. I left Athens for a while and moved back and was surprised to see it there. I decided to order from them to give them a try, and now I get them more than any other Athens pizza, they are affordable (unlike a certain place down the street), their staff is amazing, and I have never had a problem with my order (again...unlike that certain place down the street). There are plenty of pizza places in Athens, but most of them are either chains that you can find anywhere or that one place that sells novelty pizzas that cost an arm and a leg and seem more like absurd experiments than food. Also, if you sign up with Plus 1, you get all kinds of deals, they routinely e-mail me great deals. I don't really ever write reviews, but I like this place so much that I feel the least I can do is ...”

I've had Plus 1 three times since they opened (twice delivery, once dine in). Everyone is super friendly and the food is delicious! The delivery times are also crazy reasonable (if you're ordering during the lunch and dinner rushes, don't expect to get it in 30 minutes, just saying). Each delivery I got was made in 30-45 minutes, and I love their online gps tracker. Keep supporting these awesome folks. They may be a little green, but they're soon to be a local favorite!
