East Side Pizza which I guess was known as The Clay Oven serves us some unique pizzas in a makeshift restaurant on the side of the Hana road. They have 2 clay ovens that are wood fired. Damn good pizzas. If you order to go or have left overs, its is wrapped in leaves... talk about bio degradable. The pizza... More

I think this place is only open from 4:00-8:00 on Friday and Saturday evening. The salads are amazing! Made the mistake of ordering gluten free pizza. It was not good crust. Heavy and not tasty. I could see the light fluffy regular pizza and I wish I had ordered that! Next time!

We came there for the pizza and we were not disappointed. The staff was friendly, and the pizza choices interesting. Alas, our eyes were bigger than our stomachs. Our leftovers were wrapped in banana leaves to take home. Great experience!

A food stand with something extra special. The clay oven pizza served Friday and Saturday from 4:30pm are delish!! Crust is thin and crisp. Toppings are generous. The My cousin Vinny is SPICY but great flavor. Your take away pizza box is Hanna treat of banana leaves and a flower or eat there with a BYOB policy. Be sure to... More

The salad was a work of art. All the staff were fun and super friendly. The pizza was creative and delicious! Love the low waste use of reused cardboard and banana leaves for take out.

We started off with a salad. It was delicious and enough for two people. The pizza was thin crust with just the right amount of ingredients on it. The people making and serving the food are super friendly.

Otherwise you can wait in paradise for an hour, hanging out with some crowd that shares special cigarette. Or, now that I think about it maybe you should come later! Love the "pizza boxes"

Open environment and great organic food; salads rained on the local farm and unique pizza. Pizza was original and all the ingredients were fresh. This place is a gem and one of a kind. Recommend adding this to your vacation food stop in Hana. Currently only open on Fridays and Saturdays.

We were finally in Hana on a Friday to get pizza here. The last couple of visits we missed them being open. Wow! I got the ahi tuna pizza which was outstanding! I can't eat tomatoes or mozzarella cheese so I had no idea what I would eat here. Well, this was perfect! It had none of those but it... More

Headed for our stay in Hana on a Friday afternoon and had looked for places that would be open at 5 PM. Thanks to TA stopped here for Pizza to go. The Pizza was awesome and got it to go wrapped in banana leaves. Ate it on the Lanai at Hana Oceanfront Cottages. It was heaven that first evening
