We did get an Alaskan King Crab pizza that was good but not OMG good. We needed something fast and this worked - no more, no less. Sat at little table facing street and laughed over someone in a wolf costume on the sidewalk goofing on people and posing for pictures.

Thank you for stopping by. All ingredients we use are organic and very high quality, thus the price of a pizza is higher. Prices for all food items in Alaska are more expensive due to the higher prices we pay to bring in items from other parts in the US.

We make a high quality Neapolitan styled pizza. Our organic flour is imported from California, the tomatoes we use are San Marzano imported from Italy. All ingredients we use are organic and very high quality, thus the price of a pizza is higher. Prices for all food items in Alaska are more expensive due to the higher prices we pay to bring in items from other parts in the US.
I find your comment completely unfounded and unfair.

Whole pizza $12.95, 2 slices $13 ???? Sauce was dull, minimal cheese. The dough was the best part of the pizza. Better off to go to the other pizza places in Juneau unless you want a really quick bite. This place does make pizza very fast.

That is not correct, you paid for a 10 inch pizza which is 6 slices. All ingredients we use are organic and very high quality, thus the price of a pizza is higher. Prices for all food items in Alaska are more expensive due to the higher prices we pay to bring in items from other parts in the US. Pizza cook in 5 minutes.

So I've been eating 'pizza' on Holland America cruise ship and couldnt wait to hit town and look for some good pizza.
We found this place running around on our way to an excursion. Its ran out of a small trailer right down by the docks. So I ordered a 5 inch pizza and a pop. It came to about $15 with a tip. The mini pizza came out and it had to be 3-4 inches 'big'. Smaller than a frozen deep dish pizza. It was barely better than average. I liked the wood smoked taste in the crust which had a nice chew to it, like good pizza should. Sauce was very bland, basic and cheese matched that. Ill give this a 6 out of 10, but thats being nice by 1 probably after eating cruise ship 'pizza' for days. Ok pizza, super way too high priced though.

We do not have a pizza that is $15. You probably paid about $13 for a 10 inch pizza.

What a cool place to enjoy a fresh pizza. It is not like going to a restaurant, it’s a food truck with a brick over pizza stove inside. The pizza’s are small & fresh Alaskan style, but pricey. Everything is made to order with only a 10 minute wait. This was very different from any other pizza restaurant we been too.
