Wood oven pizza with lots of speciality choices. We had a pizza and the Pizza Joint salad (one was enough for 3 of us) and the house wings. All three were great. Salad was so fresh with lots of greens and different types of tomatoes - delish. The wings were huge and the house preparation was different and yummy. Pizza... More

If you like heavenly thin crust pizza made from fresh ingredients, this is the place to go. Be aware this is not your typical pizza joint, despite the name: Cash only It's BYOB for alcohol (they sell bottled soft drinks, water, juice and Snapple products) but if you want a beer you have to bring it yourself, either from home...

Looking for something to have for lunch in Crystal River and found The Pizza Joint. We were a little nervous pulling in because it's attached to a gas station. Saw a couple of tables outside and decided that at worst we get the pizza to go. Came inside to discover friendly staff and a cute diner type setup. Pizza is... More

Heard about this small place at the Shed in Homosassa and they were so enthusiastic we went yesterday. Absolutely the best pizza in Citrus County and the second best wood fired oven pizza ever. The first one we had was in Queechee Gorge, VT and haven't been to one since until yesterday. This is a definite repeat very often! BYOB,... More

Off the beaten path hides this shining example of brick oven pizza. We were skeptical to say the least as we pulled into the lot. The crew was exceptionally welcoming and kind, and the manager or owner was energetic, positive and appreciative. Their prices are reasonable and their menu is small yet varied. Let me tell you, there is no... More

Little hole in the wall place in the middle of no where. Real wood fire oven and great pizza. They have pizza by the slice which is great. The salad is plenty for 2 or 3 to share before pizza. They use fresh local veggies and have a wonderful house italian dressing. It will hit the spot for your pizza... More

Ten of us crowded in one Friday afternoon and took over almost all the tables. With that much food on order--6 pizzas and 2 orders of wings-- we thought we would wait forever but the pizzas cooked quickly in the wood fire and we didn't have to wait long. Service was exceptionally fast. If you want more than soft drinks... More

My wife and I have eaten here for many years and it is still good. It has very limited seating and nothing fancy but you can watch the pizza cook in a wood fired oven. The wood is stacked inside for the oven. You can bring your own drinks if you'd like a beer or wine with your meal. The... More
