North Shore Farms

Despite the name North Shore Farms, you can find their extremely popular Pesto Grilled Pizza (which many have designated THE best pizza on Oahu) all across the island, specifically at farmers markets and food booths at local fairs and events.

Head to the KCC Farmers Market on Saturdays, and one of the longest lines, if not the longest, will be for North Shore Farms' Pesto Grilled Pizza.

Made with Big Wave Tomatoes from the North Shore, hand-stretched mozzarella, and made-from scratch Pesto, and grilled to create a crispy, flavorful crust, it's no wonder both tourists and locals seek out the Pesto-Grilled Pizza at farmers markets and food events throughout the island.

Brick Oven Pizza

Brick Oven Pizza is a mainstay on Kauai, having won numerous awards for their onolicious pizzas, so it was only a matter of time before they opened a location on Oahu.

In 2011, Brick Oven Pizza opened in Kapolei to the delight of many who live on the West side of Oahu who not only sought good pizza, but also a nice, family-friendly restaurant.

Brick Oven Pizza definitely fits the bill, serving tasty varieties of pizza and exceptional customer service.

Available in 10", 12" and 15" sizes, Brick Oven's thin crust pizzas are available on white or wheat, with an option for "broke da mouth" (delicious) garlic butter brushed on the edge.

You can make your own pizza, choosing from a variety of toppings, or specialty pizzas include Bay Shrimp & Fresh Garlic, Hawaiian BBQ Chicken, Margherita, and Smoked Ham & Pineapple.

A fun bonus for kids - servers give them a ball of dough so they can pretend to make their own pizzas (and it's simply a great way to occupy little hungry tummies until the pizzas arrive).

Brick Oven Pizza - Kapolei: 889 Kamokila Blvd. #206, Kapolei, HI 96707; (808) 674-8561

V Lounge

One would not expect exceptional pizzas to come out of a lounge, but that's exactly what you'll get when you dine at V Lounge.

Their dough - which is made with Caputo flour from Italy and hand made and stretched, is baked in a kiawe wood fire oven.

They strive to use local ingredients whenever possible, and items such as white anchovies, cured meats, and Buffalo Mozzarella are imported from Italy.

V Lounge's popular Margherita, made with San marzano tomato sauce, buffalo mozarella, and basil is simple, yet delicious.

Other pizza varieties include the Bianca Verde (white pizza), Boquernones (anchovies), and the Prosciutto Rucola.

For those with a more adventurous pallette, try the Prima, made with pancetta, onions, Hamakua ali`i oyster mushrooms, mozzarella, truffle oil, and a raw egg yolk.

As the name implies, it's a lounge, so don't expect 5-star customer service or ambience. Just expect delicious pizza.

V Lounge: 1344 Kona Street, Honolulu, HI, 96814; 808-953-0007
