Again I feel compelled to write a review for my visit to my favorite pizza place in Dunnellon. We ordered the Spicey sausage pizza and the house salad and both are dynamite. It's nice to have a pizza place of this quality here. I am from Miami and we have a pizza place called Frankies that is my... read more

After reading reviews decided to try the pizza, not impressed at all but the service was great. Pizza is overpriced....

The pizza and chicken wings were very good and the owner was very friendly. They only take cash or atm at gas station. It is a great take out place with limited seating.

Like the wood firing, the crust thickness, not oozing with sauce and cheese. Good ingredients, good flavor.

After reading the recent Citrus Chronicle review, I packed the kids in the car and headed for the back roads to this hole in the wall. The Pizza joint did not disappoint. The owner and his staff were friendly and eagerly inquired if we were newbies- You would be a fool to miss the chicken wings. Please resist the temptation... More

Small pizza place but great tasting pizza. A clay oven is used to make the best tasting pizzas. Don't only eat pizzas but try their wings. They are delicious. Salads are large and have everything but the kitchen sink in them. Enough for 4. The owner is always upbeat and personable. The wood is stacked in the dining area. Small... More

Our friends have been going there for a while now and just raved about not only the pizza but the service!. Well we tried it and man was it awesome! Very small but welcoming. We had the New School Margherita and it was awesome. It is a little out of the way but well worth the drive. We can't wait... More

We've eaten at The Pizza Joint a few times....usually meet friends there for dinner and split a pie. Tonight we did the same, but ordered 20 wings. In my life I've never had anything like them!! HEAVENLY....we all LOVED them! I have no idea what they're marinated in, but when you can see the Fresh Rosemary and other herbs right... More

Best kept secret in town! Pizza was better than Greenwich Village. Bruschetta is out of this world! The owner knows food and loves what he does and it shows . We are counting the days until we go back.
