Located right outside downtown Gatlinburg (near the Food City grocery store), Solorzano’s Pizzeria has been creating a buzz among locals and visitors alike. This charming eatery, which recently opened its doors, brings a slice of Italy to the mountains of Tennessee with its authentic cuisine and inviting ambiance. If you’ve visited Gatlinburg in the past, you may recall that a fine Italian restaurant called Taste of Italy was open in Gatlinburg for many years in this same location.

The Solorzano’s Supreme: A Masterpiece of Flavors

Pizza is definitely the specialty here. The highlight of our visit was undoubtedly the Solorzano’s Supreme pizza. Described as a “classic pie,” this Jersey-style thin crust pizza is a testament to generations of perfected techniques. Topped with an array of ingredients including pepperoni, sausage, meatballs, bacon, mushrooms, onions, green peppers, and black olives, each bite is a harmonious blend of flavors and textures. The crust was thin and crispy. The pizza’s deliciousness can’t be overstated – it’s a must-try for any pizza aficionado. If you’re dining alone or in a hurry, you can even order pizza by the slice.
