Best Pizza on West Side of Newport Bay – Crispy crust that isn't cracker-thin, many choices of toppings, and some imaginative combinations. Lots of chewy cheese that has real flavor. I'm a native New York City girl, so I am a pizza snob, and it takes a lot for me to give even 4 stars. But I'll buy pizza here, any time I'm in the Westcliff area!
The salads are also very good - more than just chopped lettuce. A real old-fashioned pizza joint.
Come here for the pizza, and get it to go. You can always eat it at a park or by the beach.
By FAR The Best Pizza in Newport Beach and all of OC – Man o man...I have been coming to this spot anytine I am nearby anb I get my PMS Special...I am a guy so it has nothing to do with that time of the month...It is my tasty pepperoni, mushroom, saussage combo that is AMAZING!!!! Just as great as the pizza is the entire staff of the Pizza Bakery. Furthermore, it is hard to find a nicer and more giving owner than John who provides a ton of pizza for charitable and school functions throughout Newport Beach. If you are a hardcore Pizza lover, you got to stop in and enjoy this joint....One of my favorite spots in all of OC!!!
Best pizza ever – I read a comment that said the pizza tasted like a shoebox and was told to go to bj's for better pizza.....what a lie!!!! I've been a customer ever since I was a kid and I have to say their pizza is better than any dominos pizza hut or BJ's PERIOD!!! And because nobody was there was cuz he was there late night and we all loooove to eat that delicious pizza in the comfort of our own home. Bon appeti!
Great customer service, funny employees, GREAT PIZZA – The Pizza Bakery in Newport Beach had some of the best slices i've ever had. It was a bit pricey but that was a little price to pay for the great pizza. On top of all that the employees were funny and got me my food quickly.
Avoid at all Costs! – I went to the pizza bakery on a Saturday night, not a soul in the place, that's always a bad sign, and ordered a Large pepperoni, fresh garlic and mushroom pizza. What I received was Absolutely void of flavor, tasted like a shoebox and cost me $24. I've been burping up the undigestable pizza brick for the past 2 hours. . The uncaring staff seem to be more concerned with gossiping then putting any effort into a pizza.
Avoid this place like the plague. Go to BJ's pizza.
Hands Down Best Pizza – We have been going to the Pizza Bakery for well over ten years now. It is definitely the best pizza in town. My husband and I go there and each order a slice -- they're giant and very filling. When I'm not in the mood for pizza, I order the spaghetti, which is plentiful and also delicious. The Pizza Bakery also has pre-made salads, which are a meal in themselves with lettuce, a cherry tomato, peppercini, radish, bell pepper, garbanzo beans, kidney beans, and cheese. The owner, John, is such a nice guy. He is always very patient with his high school employees and so kind with his customers. While we wait for our pizza slices, we enjoy the dough knots, which when fresh from the oven are tasty, tasty treats. We cannot say enough great things about the Pizza Bakery.
Bland Boring Soggy Pizza! – My boyfriend and I decided to try an a new pizza place, I should of known better because when we got there the place was deserted. The decor was wierd too, pictures of children on the wall at an italian place didnt really go with the decor. The service was ok but the pizza was way overpriced, we wanted to subsitute chicken sausage for regular on their supreme pizza and they charged us extra - $26 for a large pizza is rediculous! On top of that it was soggy, bland and boring. A total waste!
Newports One of a Kind Pizza – I was here over the weekend with a couple of my friends. It was very busy, but the pizza was worth the wait. I will be back and I might tell my boyfriend about it? There was a lot of cute guys.
Try the White Pizza – The Pizza Bakery brings New York style pizza to Newport Beach with its enormous thick-crust slices. My favorite kind is White Pizza which unfortunately doesn?t come in individual slices, but is so good I wouldn?t be surprised if I could eat the whole pizza. Keep in mind that The Pizza Bakery is also extremely popular with the high school crowd so get ready for long lines at noon.
Good pizza with interesting toppings – I think typically people get customized slices here where the cooks take a cooked plain slice, put toppings on and heat it up together to make your order. They have unique toppings like goat cheese and ricotta cheese. If you like unique pizzas this is a great place, and you don't have to order a whole pie. You can also get pies, but they take longer. The seating area is pretty big and informal (you pick up your slices at the counter) but it's decorated nicely so it makes you want to stay longer and eat your slice there rather than just quickly take off with it.
