Stopped here after kayaking the Rainbow River based on the TripAdvisor reviews. Was not disappointed. Pizza was excellent and so were the Cannolis. Would highly recommend!

This is a great place to come for pizza. It’s hand tossed and backed in a real brick oven. Everyone here was fantastic. We will definitely be returning here.

We ordered a Hawaiian pizza and it was very good. Wood fired pizza have thin crust and this is what we like. The crust is also baked just right. It is a smaller restaurant so there is not a lot of room to set.

absolutely the best pizza in Citrus County! Crust is homemade and chewy and this pizza is baked in a wood fired oven from Italy! This is our only go to pizza and we drive over 25 miles to get there! This is worth it!

Our first time at the Pizza Joint was awesome. I was concerned that the pizza would be overly burned or have a very smokey taste but that wasn't the case. We were greeted immediately and asked if we were first timers, we said we were...and were given a menu. We ordered and the pizza arrived in a short time. I have to say it was the best I have had in this County! The crust actually had flavor and held together with the toppings. The toppings had a slight crunch to them and were perfect. Usually, the toppings are over cooked and soggy. I hear the wings are very good as well and can’t wait to go back to try those. It’s a bit of a hike to get there but it was SO worth it. The pizza was great and the staff, very friendly. Go, you won’t regret it.More

I have to be honest, we didn't expect much from a hole-in-the-wall joint attached to a gas station, seemingly in the middle of nowhere. Buuuuut...omg! The pizza was so yummy - perfect crust, crispy and chewy. The sauce is balanced and the pizza had the...right amount of it. And gooey delicious mozzarella. Sigh. I want some right now. I've lived in New York and Chicago, so I've had legit pizza. This fits in that category for sure. And the people who work there are super friendly too. All-around great experience.More

I ordered a 16' extra cheese and a 16' pepperoni, plus a dozen garlic cheese sticks. The crust, the cheese, everything....AMAZING! Had to wait a while because they are busy, but it was well worth it. I will be ordering from them again without a...doubt.More

Very good pizza crust. We had the white pizza which was excellent due to the woodfire and ingredients. However the marinated wings were bland. However it maybe due to my fondness of hot wings. Shame that on the board it was advertised that they had...rubbed wings when I ordered prior to my arrival.More

Had a full day so why cook. We had the woodfire pizza with pepperoni it's all about the crust and smoke. Also their special Rosemary wings again it's that special aroma and taste. The smeller and the buds were hitting on all cylinders.
