Best pizza?

Best pizza? - 06/06/2018 08:14 PM

Ok, we’re staying at Beach Side Villas, wife wants a pizza tonight, and sunset and driftwood is out already had them and they are just so so (now everyone calm down now, we just didn’t care for them, lol ). We are looking for something close by to pick up and bring back. We like thin crust with the pockets of air (bubbles) in the crust. Sauce has to be great but nothing that’s going to keep us up all night (indigestion). And close by if possible. That being said, any and all help is needed!

While I have never had pizza at either place I am going to mention, I believe others (who I would trust their opinion) have. Bar Code or Fat Tony's up in the Cupecoy area and back towards the medical school.

Good luck.

Try Pizza & CO in Simpson Bay. In same area as the Subway shop and same side of road. Across the street from Soggy Dollar Bar entrance. Good prices. Lots of choices. Most of their business is take-a-way. Enjoy

Isola by Hollywood Casino and Pizza Italy.

Be sure to try https://www.facebook.com/PollosHermanosSXM/ It's right as you drive into simpson bay from the airport. Awesome chicken.

We really enjoyed the pizza at Fat Tony’s but that was last April and pre Irma. I believe they have reopened and it’s an easy ride from BSV Through Maho and the main road through Mullet. Turn into the road below the Stars casino area and follow it through past the main entrance to the med school into the Jordan Village area. It’s more or less on the corner and there’s plenty of parking along with a great little pastry shop across the street for dessert after dinner if you’re of a mind.......

There are a bunch of fairly new (new to us anyway...) places in the Jordan village area and a spaghetti house which is rumored to be excellent, so i’ve been told, and reasonably priced, too. Not an ‘evening out for dinner and drinks’ kind of place but good food at a reasonable price and in a reasonably good location.

There is also In and Out Pizza in Cupecoy just before you get to Fat Tony's. Very nice pizza.

Re: Best pizza? - 06/06/2018 10:23 PM

We’ve tried it, too, and it was pretty good if it’s the same place I’m thinking of......

Pizza, and particularly “the best” pizza is such a personal thing. Some like thin crust that almost cracks while others like the medium bubbly crust. Some like it flooded with sauce while others like it with very little tomato sauce or even white with no sauce at all - an all white pizza with ricotta ad mozzarella and mushrooms and onions or pineapple and ham. And then there’s cheese - a little, a lot, mozzarella, Parmesan or whatever your personal pleasure. And then there’s the add-on toppings. We like plain mozzarella with no additional toppings while some want meats, vegetables, anchovies - you name it.

So to name ‘THE BEST” is almost anyone’s guess. But the really nice thing is that on SXM you can find them all if you’re willing to look around and try the different offerings.

Thanks Pat, I think we will be heading that way! If this sand gravity gets off our feet,lol! We are going to try it out! Thanks again for all the quick information! Love this!,

Re: Best pizza? - 06/06/2018 10:38 PM

Best of anything is very subjective for sure! We are in LOVE with a new pizza at Buccaneer I think called something like Boerwurst pizza. House made thin crust covered in South African sausage and Biltong. Made on the island. Amazing thing!

Re: Best pizza? - 06/06/2018 10:42 PM

Glad they got back to making their own crusts. Pizza I had there this last trip was like the good old days. Couple of years ago they were using frozen premade crusts that resembled and tasted like a cardboard Frisbee.

Re: Best pizza? - 06/06/2018 11:51 PM

Just got back from Fat Tony’s, haven’t eaten it yet so the jury is still out on this one, but looks good!

Re: Best pizza? - 06/07/2018 12:58 AM

Crap! Just saw this, sorry....have you eaten yet?

Pizza & Co DELIVERS! You can stay at BSV, shower, listen to the waves and get dinner at the gate. wink

Edit: Oops, just saw that you had already brought your Fat Tony's back to the room. If you are there longer...give Pizza & Co a try.

Re: Best pizza? - 06/07/2018 01:24 AM

So, BeachKitten--can you recommend the pizza at Pizza & Co??? I like thin crust, lots of toppings.

Re: Best pizza? - 06/07/2018 01:39 AM

La Patrona at Simpson Bay Marina Resort, hard to beat, has lots of toppings and the price is right. They will deliver

Re: Best pizza? - 06/07/2018 02:44 AM

Served on a tortilla? LOL
Posted By: SXMFOX

Re: Best pizza? - 06/07/2018 11:03 AM

Well the verdict is in, with us anyway. It was a very good pizza. Thin crust with 4 toppings was $20.00, and a small is large enough for two people! We will order again. The have a lot of small pick up take out restaurants around in that area, and two small grocery stores! We also picked up some pastries from across the street for in the morning. All in all, wasn’t a bad trip over there!

Glad to learn you enjoyed it......I was concerned! 😊😊

Re: Best pizza? - 06/07/2018 12:27 PM

We are blessed to have so many good options in Cupecoy. Bar Code is a wonderful restaurant and Spaghetti House is home made pasta for a reasonable price. They are not all only take out. But with all those students living just there, they all do a great take out business.

Re: Best pizza? - 06/07/2018 12:37 PM

We have always enjoyed Barcode and the other pizza place too. Looking forward to spaghetti (?) this Fall....

Re: Best pizza? - 06/07/2018 01:20 PM

Yes, thanks to everyone’s help, we were lead in the right direction. Wife was talking about dominos (just thinking of pizza which we don’t eat a lot of) only because we hung out with the owner of all the dominos the other night. By the way, very nice gentleman, had a blast!

Re: Best pizza? - 06/07/2018 01:21 PM

I was thrilled to find the Carrefour express over there in Jordan village. Got very nice steaks and some potatoes to bake...cooked steaks on the grill on the deck. Salad items too.

Hmmm, I really need to take the time to get my pictures uploaded...lol

Re: Best pizza? - 06/07/2018 02:33 PM

A few more photos of that area. They have a lot of stuff packed into that area! I must say that the grocery stores are well stocked.

Re: Best pizza? - 06/07/2018 02:46 PM

When things are going well here, there are almost 1000 medical students studying and living in the area. As a result all of us have all these choices at reasonable prices!
Posted By: SXMFOX

Re: Best pizza? - 06/07/2018 02:49 PM

Yes we think that is great! Well off to tour the island! We are offering tours today for $5.00, no ship in town, well maybe just gas money! Just a joke!
Posted By: SXMScubaman

Re: Best pizza? - 06/07/2018 02:54 PM

Good looking pizza. I still like a much thinner crust but I'll have to give it a try next trip.
Posted By: SXMFOX

Re: Best pizza? - 06/07/2018 03:03 PM

We do also! Really thin. Off we go, I see there are no takers on the island tour, got my cardboard sign and all!! Lol!

Totally agree with you, Le Belle Epoque was the best. Their pizza chef went to Dreams, but, alas, it's gone for good too

Re: Best pizza? - 06/08/2018 12:47 AM

Best pizza in the Simpson Bay Area is Pizza & Co. Isola next to Hollywood casino in Pelican is good too. Both of these places have chefs from Italy.
Posted By: SXMScubaman

Re: Best pizza? - 06/08/2018 01:01 AM

Isola makes them just like we had in Italy. Great.

Re: Best pizza? - 06/08/2018 01:18 AM

Darlin' you know I'll post a menu....or send it to you...lol....just need time. Being on the HOA Board and coming home and working has been a big ole B!

Loved the pizza at Orange Fever too. Delicious with a nice cold drink always served with a smile!

Pizza del Sol has awesome pizza and is across the street from Topper's. We ate there in May and June, fantastic!

Re: Best pizza? - 06/12/2018 07:38 PM

I think pizza lovers are very personal. We coming form new york think we know the best pizza, and have been very disgusted eating pizza any where on Island. But different people, different tastes. For us? we do not eat pizza in sxm. We think we know the best, have had the best, and nothing like an old fashioned brick oven pizza. Not sure they have them in sxm. but if not, the dough is raw, or not cooked the way it should be... When hungry eat anything and enjoy. We have learned not to take views fo others about food. Go try it, If you like go back

Re: Best pizza? - 06/13/2018 05:02 PM

What about this place at Port de pleasant casino, next to where the old Peg Leg used to be? Right above the sushi place? We always go there and love their pizza. We also LOVE their calzones, especially the VOLCANO! Are they still in business? Sorry I don’t remember the name of this place.

Re: Best pizza? - 06/13/2018 07:45 PM

Haven't returned after the freaken big storm (read IRMA), yet ...BUT ..ENZO PIZZA (Cul de Sac) is Sooooo Fine. European pizza, thin crust, bubbly, great toppings ..and WOOD-FIRED! Small truck-bakery .. only open evenings!
I surely hope they survived!

Re: Best pizza? - 06/13/2018 10:08 PM

As an additional thought regarding the original question - There are a lot of excellent pizza places on the island based on everyone’s individual preferences, but I thought the OP was looking for something convenient to or close to BSV. 😊😊

Just as a refresher as to the original question.

Unfortunately for them, the original poster has headed back home, so any new replies are probably not useful to them now anyway!! laugh

Re: Best pizza? - 06/14/2018 12:24 PM

Wow! Thanks all for the great info, much appreciated! But as Carol mentioned we have left the island and will return in September, we will take this info with us! Thanks again for all the great responses, boy this thread really grew!

We miss Belle Epoch too!!
My Husband loved their pizza and I loved their salads-
I think the restaurant that is open on the Marina, Pate de la Main, also has
good pizza and Mussels among other things.
They have been getting good reviews.
