At Boogie Woogie Pizza, they put their all into creating fantastic pizzas complete with a crispy crust, melty cheese, and all the best toppings around. Then, they serve them up to all their patrons to go or for dine-in at their beautifully rustic shop in Pahoa. All along the way, they aim to make the experience convenient and affordable while still rolling out quality pies minute after minute. You can bet they stay busy, too, as locals and tourists alike come through for a chance to get a taste of their pizza perfection.

For that reason, it’s best to call in your order before you even leave your hotel. Most orders take 30 to 40 minutes, but they’ll keep your pizzas hot if they get done sooner. When you order, do yourself a favor and buy more pizza than you think you might need. Swinging by for a slice? Get a small pizza instead. Want a medium pie? Get a large. Going for the large? Get two. You’ll thank yourself later when the cravings for more deliciousness come your way. Plus, it’s doubly good cold, as is the case with all the best pizzas.

Don’t forget to explore their other menu items as well. Delicious smoothies, cheesy breadsticks, and crisp salads round out the menu beautifully. On top of that, they offer a decadent spaghetti dinner made with a vegetarian sauce, but they can add meatballs if you wish. You’re also welcome to order up bottled water, soda, or Aloha Brand juice drinks to complete your meal.

Prefer to sip on alcoholic beverages while enjoying your pizza? While they don’t serve alcohol, they’re a BYOB establishment. So, bring along your favorite beer or wine to sip on while dining in-house. There’s no extra charge, but they appreciate you not bringing any hard liquor along for the ride. 

You cannot miss their:

Cheese Breadsticks
The Cheese Breadsticks are a must if you want to whet your appetite with cheesy, garlicky flavors in every bite. Their breadsticks start with their original pizza dough topped with garlic butter. Then, they add a generous amount of cheese before popping it in the oven. Marinara sauce comes alongside for dipping.

Thai Pizza
If you want pizza unlike anything you’ve ever tried before, treat yourself to the Thai Pizza. This delightful pie comes with chicken, Chile peppers, carrots, baby corn, and cilantro to start. Then, they kick it up a notch with mild Thai garlic sauce and sesame seeds over top. After that, the whole lot goes into the oven to get crisp, melty, and oh-so-delicious.

Spaghetti Dinner
Although it’s new to their menu, the Spaghetti Dinner is an easy favorite. They start this dish by sauteing mushrooms, bell peppers, and onions, and then adding tomato sauce. If you want meatballs, they go in next. Then, they cook their pasta al dente and add it to your vegetarian or meatball sauce. After that, they complete this meal by including a side salad and garlic cheese bread.

Smoothies
If you want a sweet kick to go with your meal, get a Smoothie. You’ll just need to choose your flavor, and then wait for them to whip up your drink. The flavor options include pineapple coconut, mango tango, banana strawberry, cappuccino, and strawberry.

If you want to try your hand at making a unique pizza to remember, just ask to build your own. You’ll need to select from their 12-, 15, and 18-inch crusts in either original or thin style. Then, start adding toppings, like smoked provolone, Italian sausage, pineapple, red onions, mushrooms, garlic, and the like. For even more savory goodness, choose from their B list of toppings, which features shrimp, ricotta cheese, Philly steak, and pesto sauce. Keep in mind that each topping is an extra charge.

Insider Tips:
-No parking spots available right out front? Check the lot right across Keaau-Pahoa Road for a spot before searching for street parking.
-If you want to end your meal with dessert, ask about their New York Cheesecake.
