Max’s Coal Oven Pizzeria

We’re always ready for pie, baby. Especially at Max’s Coal Oven Pizzeria in downtown Atlanta, where the city’s only genuine coal-burning oven cooks up gourmet New York style pizza and wings. The menu also offers a full selection of fresh pastas, Italian sandwiches, salads, and desserts…but the coal-fired pizza and wings is where it’s at.

We don’t know what happens to a wing when it’s coal-fired. But we like it. These fall-off-the-bone lemon pepper wings are served with a garlic yogurt sauce…and lots of napkins. Dig in, get dirty, and save plenty of room for pizza.

Max’s pizza is famous for many reasons: the crispy-on-the-outside, chewy-on-the-inside crust; their super secret special red sauce; house made mozzarella; fresher than fresh ingredients. Whether you design your own pizza or order off of their specialty pizza menu (like, say, the Fontina & Wild Mushroom Pizza with caramelized onions and fresh oregano…) you’re sure to leave with a pleased pizza palate.

Highlights

Coal-fired to perfection, the meat on these puppies practically falls off the bone. Served with a garlic yogurt sauce.

Fontina & Wild Mushroom Pizza

Fresh from the coal-fired oven, this pizza is topped with fontina cheese, wild mushrooms, caramelized onions, and fresh oregano.

Italian Hoagie

Meat lovers, rejoice! This bad boy is piled high with prosciutto, capicola, mortadella, salami, provolone, lettuce, tomato, onion, and hots. Mangia!
