Found this place during a comic Con. Great little atmosphere! We came in cosplay and they were very welcoming! First guest had Baked garlic knots that were amazing, with cheese and sausage inside. Yum. I had a slice of pepperoni pizza that was divine.... thin crust and lovely sauce would highly recommend.

Holy cow! This place is amazing! If you’re a fan of thin crust, this is the place for you! Order by the pie or by the slice. Slice menu changes daily (outside of basics). Service is friendly and generally quick regardless of time of day or night.

Pie Pushers catered our weeding of 240 guests. They handled the number of guests with ease and the pizza is straight textbook! Kimmi is incredibly nice and thorough and our event went off without a hitch. We only have good things to say about these fine pizza folks!

Good quality pizza with the right crust & right cheese. Neat downtown place. A cool alternative, go for breakfast & get a slice of Breakfast pizza (w/ adding an egg!). 👍

Excellent pizza, and the deep fried Devito is delicious. The staff were friendly and service was quick. The only issue was the music was really loud form of heavy metal.

One of my favorite places to eat in Durham. The atmosphere is very laid back and the interior of the restaurant is phenomenal! The pizzas are great! It just like any Italian restaurant that you find but the dough, sauce, cheese and toppings are very high end. Take that mom and pop Italian restaurant that's in your hometown but have everything made correctly using only the finest ingredients and that's Pie Pushers. The prices are exactly what you would want them to be and they always have great rotating craft beers. I swear by this place and recommend it to everyone I know that is even thinking about pizza. I have made the 45 minute trip from my home just to go to Pie Pushers many times. The rest of my trip is up in the air and I'm winging it but Pie Pushers is a must. Stop what you are doing and go there now!

I really wasn't in the mood for a counter service place and I was blown away by the pizza. The pizzas they've come up with are creative and the ingredients tasted fresh with many I assume made in house. They have a few beers on draft and a decent selection of bottles and cans. Make sure to check the board as they had a can special when we were there.

Pie pushers is a great place to grab a quick slice or a whole pie. Good thin crust and generous toppings. The wings are also excellent if you want an alternative and they also have great salads.

If you want to eat the best food in Durham, stop here. The pizza is the obvious choice, and you really can't go wrong. I'll usually get a couple single slices of their specialty pies.The big underdog though is the chicken wings! Best I've had in the area, and that was a total surprise.

It may be that "The Jerry" is the ideal and perfect pizza. Beginning with the crust, as one must, the crust has the correct ratio of crispiness to chewiness one expects in the better pie. The dough yields the best pie foundation I have ever encountered. The sauce must be made on site. The recipe is balanced such that the tomato expresses itself without any of the nasty overly sweetness of the industrial sauces. The application of the sauce is metered precisely such that the crust is not liquefied yet generous enough that the joyful consumer is aware of what is good and right in the world. The sausage is (I believe locally) made by someone who is obviously skilled, knowledgeable, and caring. The combination of the sausage and pepperoni balanced by the ample mozzarella evokes memories of the wonder of childhood and one's first encounter with the glory that is pizza. The clever folks at Pie Pushers are willing to work with the particular taste of their customers, I personally recommend the addition of mushrooms to complete pizza satisfaction. Please note, the Madrona Salad is by far the best salad available on the market anywhere. As a salad, it is peerless. The eggplant fries are also a delight...I could go on...The gentle folk at Pie Pushers will also bring this glory to you should you reside in their range. Courteous and prompt no less.God Bless the Pie Pushers and their work. Amen.

Fast service and delicious pizzas. Fun hipster vibe. Enjoyed the salad. The Queen Anne veggie pizza wasn’t my favorite due to the strong mushrooms, but I look forward to going back to try another.

I was very impressed with this place. While a bit hard to find, the service and wings in particular we're pretty spectacular making their wing special days a must go. Their dry rub was awesome and worth a trip back as were their fries and wing sauces for dipping.

If you like super thin crust pizza this is the place for you. The pepperoni slices are a nice size for the price. If you are really hungry you may need 2 slices. The crust is crispy and you can taste the yeast. There is a good amount of cheese and pepperoni on the slice. This is a really good pizza and you can get a Coke in a glass bottle to go with it.

If you like different flavors of handmade pizza, this place is for you. They only offer very thin crust, not thick crust. Very friendly staff, very clean inside. Canned drinks are $2 each, prices not on menu. There are non-pizza items on the menu. Garlic twists are a must! Plenty of off street parking if you go later in the evening.

Their pizza is really good and greatly priced for the slice! I also very much enjoy their wings. Never had wings better than theirs. Recommend!!!

Freshly made food as you order it. I miss New York style calzones but pie pushes call it a pocket. Same concept and freshly-made. The pizza is not bad either.

If you're looking for a NY style crust, this place delivers. Excellent pizza with top notch ingredients. Also one of the only places that has a Sicilian pie in Durham. If you're going to get the Sicilian I highly recommend dining in. The issue is that the pie is too thick for the carry out pizza box and all of the cheese ends up sticking to the roof of the box ruining the pizza. Not sure if they have a solution for this yet but happened to me last time. The manager was apologetic and offered to take the pizza back. That withstanding the Sicilian pie is excellent!
