To be honest, there aren’t a lot of great pizza places on Maui. But the places on this list are truly top-notch. Unique to Maui pizzas are the local ingredients and toppings you can generally only find here. Step outside of your normal pizza zone and try ordering something distinctly local. You might be surprised!
- The Outrigger Pizza Company (Kihei)
Blink and you’ll drive right past it. Outrigger Pizza Company, recently featured on Food Network’s “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives,” is a tiny, yellow trailer parked in the Kukui Mall parking lot in Kihei. The wood burning oven, built into the trailer, produces high heat and great pizza. Fast. From the time you order to your first bite is less than 10 minutes. The pepperoni is excellent, but for a good, local treat, try the kalua pork with lilikoi drizzled sauce. At prices that run from $8 for a three cheese pizza to $15 for a supreme, this is one of the best bargains on Maui. (Outrigger Pizza Company)
- Prison Street Pizza (Lahaina)
While relatively new to Lahaina, the owners of Prison Street Pizza have been making their signature “Jersey-style” thin-crust pizzas on Maui since 2006 when they opened the ever-popular Serpico’s Pizzeria in Pukulani. Where Serpico’s serves breakfast and a full Italian menu, Prison Street really focuses on the pizza. We’re always happy with the Serpico’s Special. (Prison Street Pizza)
- Fabiani’s (Wailea and Kihei)
This Italian restaurant serves up a nice, full menu of Italian classics. It’s some of our favorite Italian food on the island. Ordering pizza is tough with so many other options, but we recommend you try it. The Makena Meaty is our favorite. It’s the only pizza we’ve ever had with Portuguese sausage. Can we just say how happy we are that they don’t put pineapple on it? Both locations offer 50% off pizza while dining in the bar during happy hour. (Fabiani’s)
- Flatbread Company (Paia)
With 100% organic crusts and homemade, nitrate-free pepperoni and sausage, Flatbread Company serves up fresh, piping hot pizzas from their massive wood stove. For something you probably can’t get on the mainland, we recommend trying the kalua pork. Gluten-free crusts are available. Located in the heart of Paia, Flatbread Company gets both crowded and hot, but it’s worth it. We nearly left these guys off the list since they are part of an east coast chain. But hey, the pizza is good, and for this list, that’s what really matters. (Flatbread Company)
- Pi Artisan Pizzeria (Lahaina)
Using locally grown produce and meats, dough made fresh daily and featuring homemade sauces, mozzarella and sausage, Pi Artisan Pizzeria definitely lives up to the “artisan” part of its name. The pizzas are cooked fast and hot in their 800 degree wood-burning oven. Prices start at a reasonable $10 for a cheese pizza to a $18 for the seared ahi pizza. Because the crusts are so thin, we recommend a pizza per person. (Pi Artisan Pizzeria)
