There’s no doubt you’ve worked up an appetite by now with all that hiking and exploring, so head back to town and experience some of the best pizza in the state from Big Daddy’s Pizzeria.

This highly popular local chain specializes in wood-fired, thin crust pizza pies and serves them with soulful southern smiles in a casual setting. Big Daddy’s has three different local locations, one here in Gatlinburg, one in Sevierville, and one in Pigeon Forge. At any location you will find "fresh ingredients, hand-crafted dough, and world class pizza," a truly winning combination for an unforgettable Tennessee dinner! Their 550 degree wood fired brick oven pays homage to the classic Neapolitan roots of pizza: crispy, thin, delicious. Watch the dough being pulled by the dedicated and passionate pizza artisans, the sauces being lovingly created, and even see the fresh and local ingredients in the kitchen being prepped while here. Big Daddy’s Pizzeria is so dedicated to fresh ingredients that they don’t even have a freezer onsite!

There are several different amazing appetizers, salads, and sandwich options here! As far as pizza goes, prepare yourselves (and your stomachs) for a truly hard choice. A quick look through the menu will show you classics such as the Boo Boo Bomber (pepperoni), Cheese Pie, and Plain Pie, as well as some more intricate pies like the Mamma Mia, complete with provolone, salami, sausage, prosciutto, and peppers, and the Smoky Mountain Cheese Steak, with Gorgonzola cheese and prime rib! (If your mouth isn’t watering by now give it a second). They also serve pizzas like the carnivorous Porky Pie, spicy Bee Sting, and delicious Great White.

If you can save room for dessert you definitely should, with fresh Italian cannoli under delicious flavors like apple caramel and more! See why TripAdvisor has given this pizzeria the Certificate of Excellence three times now, and if you happen to eat at the Pigeon Forge location enjoy the new-state-of-the-art arcade addition after dessert, providing a truly fun family atmosphere for all!
