Living on an island, you can bet that we eat a fair amount of seafood. Fresh, plentiful, and healthy, our love for the bounty of the sea knows no end. With that being said, however, we must confess that every so often we crave a slice of that gooey wonderfulness that has nothing to do with the sea. Served hot and loaded with toppings, our souls smile with every bite, and when you are visiting our island paradise, we can pretty much guess that at least one of the nights of your stay in our Princeville Vacation Rentals Hawaiian escapes your soul will want to smile as well! Here’s a list of the top five Koloa pizza places we visit whenever the craving for pizza hits.
Pizzetta, 5408 Koloa Road
Island life can get pretty expensive, so when we find a place that offers good food for reasonable prices, you, our treasured guests, are the first people we notify! Pizzetta is just that place. Featuring a menu of classic Italian meals and appetizers in addition to the pizza we just can’t get enough of, this reasonably priced spot will soon be your favorite!
Gourmet Pizza and Burgers by Merriman’s, 2829 Ala Kalanikaumaka Street Suite G-149
Merriman’s is generally known for their seafood, but this delicious offshoot proves they are good at whatever they do! For those times when only a pizza will do, their Hawaiian twist on the classic pie will have you rethinking the way you order. The Hamakua Mushroom, made with hamakua mushrooms, white sauce, truffle oil, and thyme, is absolutely our favorite, but they also offer a traditional pepperoni and sausage if classic is more your style!
La Spezia, 5492 Koloa Road
The pizza found at La Spezia could more accurately be described as flatbread, but we still count it as our favorite pizza restaurant. Serving the classic Italian dishes of the old country, but using locally-sourced ingredients, the pear gorgonzola flatbread topped with bechamel, gorgonzola, red onion, and pear is a special treat that never fails to raise our spirits!
Brick Oven Pizza, 2-2555 Kaumualii Highway, Kalaheo
The casual vibe and laidback atmosphere are Hawaiian, but the pizzas served here are created from 100% authentic old country recipes. Brick Oven Pizza is a family favorite offering an extensive menu of Italian favorites in
addition to the pizzas, all homemade and baked to perfection in high temperature brick ovens. We think it will be your family’s favorite as well!
