Growing up in Scranton, PA, I'd like to consider myself a pizza connoisseur. Scranton and the surrounding areas are so spoiled when it comes to pizza... there are literally so many great places! I'm frequently asked for recommendations from out-of-town friends. I decided to compile a list of all of the best places, in my opinion. There are definitely more good ones not listed, but here we have the best of the best.
Once again, this list is IN NO PARTICULAR ORDER.
Most of the places in NEPA are square, but Vincenzo's is one of the best in the area for a classic round pizza! If you're feeling' New York style over Old Forge style, Vincenzo's is the move

When people talk about Nina's, they're probably talking about their wing bites, which are great, but did you know they have pizza too? (Spoiler alert: their pizza is also great!) I always order a slice on the side with my wing bites.
Address: 602 New York St., Dunmore, Pennsylvania 18509-2436
Phone: (570) 344-6069
What I recommend: The photo I included is of their round plain, but I personally love their square plain! Also, I recommend their double crusted hot wing pizza as well.
Many people don't know about Cangiano's because it is relatively new to its new location on the Scranton Carbondale Highway. It is a shame that this place isn't well-known because they have really great food and the inside of the restaurant is literally so cool. (I know this post is about pizza, and their pizza is so good, but I'm also obsessed with their hoagies!)
