We moved to Tokyo from the US in September 2011. I was looking for somewhere to eat just a couple days after arriving and found that the only menu written in English available to me was Pizzakaya. Since that first visit, we have been back time and again. My husband and I usually split a large pizza but he likes the Big Russell (all meat) and I prefer the Gourmet combo, which incorporates some vegetables.
I've tried the Hell's Sausage meatballs. Be warned: they are very spicy. Coming from Louisiana, I LOVE spicy food, but this may be the spiciest thing I've ever tried. I'm not sure what a previous reviewer means when they say appetizers are mostly over 1000 each. If he is speaking in terms of yen, that's incorrect. The prices on the appetizers are very reasonable, ranging from 680 yen for the Hell's Sausage meatballs (approx $8.50 USD) to 950 yen ($12) for Buffalo wings. Overall, I find their prices quite reasonable and they have the best point card deal in town. After you get stamps for purchasing 6 medium pizzas, you earn a free medium pizza. But you continue using the same card, and when you get to 10 medium (or 5 large) pizzas purchased, you earn a free large pizza.
Even though we have been to Pizzakaya often, I have never even thought about trying dessert there because I have always been too full to think about eating more after the pizza. But on a recent visit, I noticed they had lemon blueberry cheesecake so I got a piece to go. Not only was it absolutely delicious, the portion was enormous and unsurpassed in Tokyo, home of tiny portions (by American standards). Last week they had carrot cake and it was just as wonderful as the lemon blueberry cheesecake. You can bet I'll be getting dessert every time from here on out.
Another thing that we like about Pizzakaya is how they always have American movies in the dining room. On a recent visit, we saw Mr. Mom.
