The 1st pizza joint in Willard was Pizza Shack. Greasy greasy greasy. You had to take a paper towel to the top before you could eat it. Ohh I'd give $100 just to eat it one more time. Funny how there are certain foods that you think are just average until they are no longer available.
Little out of the area, but Urbana, Ohio. Sparky’s Pizza.... Similar to Donatos but has its own zing. The dining area is kind of diner like, but the pizza makes up for the lack of decor. Worth a try if you are in the area.
In Upper, us older locals swear by Susie’s.

The divorce happened over 20 years ago. The next generation is probably running it now.
I've never met a pizza I didn't like, but there are two good ones in Ontario almost across from each other on Route 309. The one on the south side, The Warrior's pizza has won at least 2 1st place awards at a national competition in Vegas. Pappa's on the North side has a yummy greasy pizza if that's your thing. Both are more than Pizza places. The Warrior also has almost any kind sandwich conceivable as well as soft serve and hard ice cream cones, Sunday's and milkshakes. Pappa's is a full menu Italian restaurant. ONCE a year they serve Egg Plant Parmesan and people come from MILES away to get it, reservations only that night.
Stopped in Mansfield and tried a pizza at Pappa's Gondola down the road from the Warrior. We did not think the pizza was anything special and probably won’t go back there at least for a pizza. We were hoping it was going to be like Matsos in Wooster little home town ethnic spot. But it was nothing close to being as good as that place. Try the pizza at that little Greek restaurant in down town Wooster Matsos it is very good. I know when anyone brings up pizza in Wooster it’s the Coccia House Pizza but I have had them both and think Matsos is better. No real knock on Coccia House it is worth trying as well but you better get there very early.
OK.................where the heck is Elliston?.....lol I thought I knew most every burg, but I guess time to get out the map.
UPDATE: I got out the map and located Graytown. It must be in the Genoa school district. Not very far from Rocky Ridge and Elliston evidently is not large enough to be deemed worthy for notice on the Ohio map....lol Thanks for enlightening me. So, next time someone asks me for directions to Graytown, I will be qualified to point them in the right direction.....lol

Here's a map showing the location of the Graytown-Elliston metroplex in relation to the Blackberry Corner restaurant redskin mentioned.
I've actually eaten there once for lunch after a trip to Magee Marsh. Didn't have pizza though, so now I have reason to try it again. The restaurant is in an neat old house style building, and is well decorated with Buckeye stuff.
I'm now familiar with Graytown and nearby Elliston, but the Martin thing has me confused again.....lol If the Blackberry Tavern is in Graytown, why would the owners or the facebook site state the location as Martin? From Graytown, you have to drive down the highway several miles, pass through Elliston and continue driving several more miles to get to the town of Martin.
Please explain this one.....lol
The question still lingers, is this in Genoa or Oak Harbor school district?
