It’s easy to get into the habit of placing the same pizza order from the same go-to spot. But with the rise of far-reaching delivery apps, there are now so many restaurant options at one’s finger tips the old guard pizza chains better watch out.

Here are some newish options, organized by neighborhood, to help shake up the ordering cycle. These are just suggestions — the delivery zones often cover various sections of the city — so if a particular area isn’t listed here, punch the corresponding zip code(s) into the featured apps and see what other dining options are available.
