Pictou County Pizza

For those of you who have not stayed in the area, Pictou county has a very different kind of pizza. They don't use a tomato sauce, they use a brown, kinda of smokey sauce on all their pizza. In fact, you'd be hard pressed to find somewhere that sells red sauce pizza! Acropole Pizza is the best... read more

My friend is from New Glasgow and told me about this pizza. We decided to make the trip from Halifax on a nice day, and it was well worth the drive. The pizza was fresh and the brown sauce was delicious. It is really good and has quite a bite to it. The staff was also very friendly.

Full disclosure: I have been enjoying Acropole Pizza since the 90s so this review will have a lot of bias in it! Pictou County pizza has a very different style than any other that I have tasted around the world. The sauce is lovingly simmered for a day giving it its trademark spicy zing. Another key ingredient is Nova Scotia's... More

Acropole never fails to make my mouth water. The food is fresh and delicious. The restaurant isn't beautiful, but the food is consistently very good. The pizza is to die for and the donairs are the best I've ever had. The donair poutine is also amazing. Highly recommend eating here.

Their slices are great. Pepperoni pizza is great. Brown sauce, spicy and not like any other pizza. The only downfall is when I want to go, they only open at 4pm and I always miss it.

Great pizza but be aware that this is really a take out place. The restaurant has tables and chaires(fixed) but there is more atmosphere in a helium baloon. Pizza is superbe though!

So, I've read about this place and I've heard friends talk about this place, so I finally made the venture off the highway to try it. I must say, what a disappointment. The crust was thick and there was lots of cheese, but it was tasteless. There was a heat...perhaps from the sauce? But overall I give this pizza a... More

Pictou county pizza is famous for their "brown sauce". Though that may sound unappetizing it was delicious. I was visiting a friend who lives in New Glasgow and was told that Acropole is the best. It did not disappoint in flavour. It was like no pizza I had ever had before. The toppings are average, but the flavour from the... More

I had a simple pepperoni pizza and was advised to eat here because of the sauce. The delivery was good with about a 45 minute span from the time of order to the time of receipt. The sauce was supposed to be great... it had savoury or some other herb in it. It wasn't for me. It didn't taste bad,... More
