I've been eating Pizza by Alex for my entire life. My daughters and I love trying different pizza joints, but nothing can compare. I've been eating the extra cheese, pepperoni and hamburg for the last 40 years! I also ask for it to cooked in the "old oven." The pie comes out with a nice crispy crust. Just be careful... More

Friends brought us to Alex Pizza and now we are hooked! Small individual pizzas with great crust. This place does pizza and only pizza. Atmosphere could use some updating but overall a great neighborhood pizza place.

This pizza place has been in business since I was a kid. They still only make one size pizza and only pizza. We get them half cooked, bring them home and freeze them. Then when you want pizza, take it right from the freezer to the over and when it comes out, it's like you just picked it up at... More

Being from New York- hard to find good pizza in the area- although not NY style - this pizza is a great treat and love the individual size. Some of the best Pizza around. Quick and reasonably priced - I wished they delivered because Parking is so limited. Interior needs some updating - but lets face it you are going... More

I felt this pizza was just okay. It was just not what I think of as great pizza. The people in Maine love it, but travelers will probably find that it is just okay. The cashier was nice.

Individual pizzas that really could serve two. Many good choices including a Greek pizza that's just delicious. Crust is crispy and toppings are fresh. It's not New York style pizza so don't have that expectation but for New England it's good. There's no ambience or frills so don't have that expectation either. We usually call our order in ahead so... More

Have had it on three different times. At it's best it was barely average. At it's worst, well, we live just down the street and we will go somewhere else, because its not worth crossing the street for. Single serve size, for a regular size pizza price. Toppings are all sub par. What is with that cheese?

I had heard that Pizza by Alex was the greatest in the Biddeford area, so I tried it. I was disappointed at best. The crust was too greasy and tasteless, the hamburger on it was not fresh or they cooked the crap out of it before hand. I believe it was frozen bits of burger because all the pieces were... More

Was not like NY style pizza. Dough tasteless. Spinach pizza tastes like overcooked frozen spinach, not fresh. If you can find the cheese it doesn't taste like mozzarella. No fresh basil either. Sauce mediocre. Very popular with the locals but not for us.
