ALOHA KAUAI PIZZA - KAPAA, KAUAI
Located in the Coconut Marketplace just behind our Kauai beach shack is a very small little pizza shop called Aloha Kauai Pizza. We stopped by last week for a quick lunch. You order at a window and then can sit on benches fronting the pizza stand. This is not a restaurant. It is a take-out only stand that measures about 15' x 20'. The people working here are warm and friendly. The menu is simple with salads, calzone, sandwiches, pasta and pizza. Pizza's come in 7", 12" and 16" sizes. We tried the "Local Boy" which the menu said was a "must". This pizza includes Hawaiian pineapple, Canadian bacon, mozzarella cheese and tomato sauce. We ordered the 12" which was $16.95. This is a bit expensive for a small pizza, but I know the cost of doing business on Kauai is high. As we waited for our pie, there was good live local music being played in the square that fronts the pizza stand. We enjoyed the pizza but felt that it needed a little more sauce and flavor kick. It was good and we will return again to help this family owned business that has been on Kauai since 1991.
