The best pizza anywhere

I've been to NYC, Chicago, Italy, and many other places. There is simply no better pizza that I have tasted than Pizza by Alex. Unfortunately I don't get to be in Maine very often anymore. Sad for me. If you're near Alex pizza, enjoy!

This is a local landmark pizza place that is always on my radar. The 12" personal size pizzas are just what the doctor ordered, comfort food at it's finest. Don't expect anything fancy or table service but there is a comfortable dining room. The counter service is pretty quick and the staff is friendly.

Simply put. Awful, flavorless and not even better than store bought. For the price, awful. I do not understand the people on here saying this is good. You want a 10 inch pizza that tastes like cardboard go to the grocery store. It's only 4 bucks at the store. Oh and this is not on one go in, they have... More

I lived in Maine in the 70s, and on my occasional visits back, I always get off I-95 to visit Pizza by Alex. Alex offers a unique and addictive version of the beloved thing we call pizza. As you make your way through to the crust, you are rewarded with an especiaIly crunchy, crispy, tasty crust which does not simply... More

Got a couple of late night pizzas here after a show at the City Theater. I was happily surprised! Perfect blend of sauce and cheese on the plain ones, and the Greek yaya one had spinach and feta and onions - oh my! As in OH MY DELICIOUS! Reasonably priced as well. We got them to go, did not sit... More

The pizza is fantastic! Only 10" size baked. We had the Yaya Greek (feta cheese and spinach) and another with sausage and mushroom. Both were loaded with delicious toppings.

I want to start by saying they do not take credit cards. This is a little strange, and something most of us want to know before getting there. The pizza is really good. They only serve 1 size pizza which is 10 inches. These personal pizzas are very unique, and you truly can't find another place that has pizza like... More

This pizza is by far the best I've ever had!! They only sell pizza and it's cash only - but it's so worth if. We live in MA and come to ME every year for vacation and never miss a trip to Alex's!! You won't be disappointed! But again, it's ONLY pizza and cash only!!!

I've been going to Alex Pizza (as locals call it) since childhood, and it never fails to disappoint. The pizza hasn't changed in decades, and for those of us who love it (which is anyone who has ever tasted it), that's just fine. A step inside this Biddeford landmark is a step back in time, with the same tables, chairs,... More

We ordered 6 pizzas for our first visit, takeout. They were ready on time, and hot. The toppings were not skimped on, the crust was flavorful. The only drawback was the parking, there isn't much.
