Read other reviews on TripAdvisor and decided to try. They use all local resources. As the waitress said they have no freezer or fryer. Everything handmade down to the salad dressings. When you walk in your eyes must adjust to the dark inside. Very cozy and small sitting area. We got the lunch special of a personal pizza with salad.... More

After Gator Game Day, this is a great spot to check out instead of getting onto I-75 with all the traffic. Backroad out of Gainesville. Super small place with a bar and tv. Everything made to order so may take longer but excellent crust and sauce . Excellent!

Wow! Go Gators! Thank you for coming to Micanopy Blue Highway for your after game pizza. We put a lot into our food and your recognition that our food made to order from quality ingredients is well worth a slightly longer wait. More

Stopped at this restaurant on my way to Gainesville. Ordered some chicken wings I waited for 35 minutes in a basically empty restaurant and then ask the waitress where the wings were and she said it probably be about another 6 to 10 minutes. why would it take 40-50 minutes to cook up chicken wings I got up and left.

Winny R, Owner at Blue Highway Pizzeria, responded to this review

My deepest apologies. I will find out what happened that took so long for your wings. It looks like you were in the Micanopy location on Saturday or Sunday. Other than Hermine which set us back, your wings should have not taken that long. Understand that we do not have a fryer or a stove, only a panini press and... More

My husband and I were staying in Payne's Prairie and looking for someplace for dinner in Micanopy. Blue Highway is one of the few places open on Monday after 5. My husband had Shrimp Scampi pizza and I had Turkey Panini. Both were very tasty. And they even brought a bowl of water out for our 4-legged baby. Kali was... More

We have been coming to this hole in the wall place for years. Fantastic and delicious salads. Great draft beer such as Long Hammer IPA that is perfect with Pizza. Now that we have one in Ocala too, we have two locations to pick from, but there is still something special about the Micanopy location. It has a certain charm... More

Thank you for your wonderful review! Micanopy is frequently cited as "the favorite," for just the sort of warm feeling, gret food experience you have shared. We have often wondered why we have never been chosen for the Diners and Dives food show. Who knows, maybe Guy Fieri will discover us someday. More

We frequently eat here in Micanopy and at the one in Ocala and Gainesville. Pizzas and calzones are fabulous! Our favorite, the BBQ chicken pizza and calzones, and we always start with the Blue Highway Salad! Oh my! Service is good. If they are busy, kitchen is slow, but worth the wait. Just beware...no extras come free. Extra marinara for... More

The pizza at this place is very good, but consider avoiding the sandwiches. I had the chicken rustico panini. While the flavor was great, the sandwich was almost entirely bread. The amount of chicken was more like a garnish than a filling. At. $9.45, this sandwich should have at least 3-4 ounces of meat - minimum! I'd estimate my sandwich... More

Please accept our apologies for the disappointing Rustica Panini. We have a standard of 4 oz of marinated and roasted peppercorn chicken breast in this sandwich. This is one of our most popular paninis, and we have spoken to the kitchen team about ensuring that the standards are followed in every dish we make. More

Slightly off the beaten path, and in an older building, but after stopping here once we just can't stay away. Very good and fresh pizza and salads and good servers. We especially like the Tuscan Bean salad and the Vongole (clam) pizza.

We stop in Micanopy to antique, and a meal at the Blue Highway Pizzeria is a must! They serve not only pizzas but salads and sandwiches too. I ordered a flatbread with spinach, brie and a drizzle of balsamic which was actually an appetizer. It was so delicious that I ate every bite- no leftovers! Quite crowded in the evenings,... More

I stayed at The Herlong Mansion and the owner recommended Blue Highway. She prefaced her recommendation by saying, "It's not your typical pizzeria" and she was right. The food is fresh and the service is excellent. Highly recommend the shrimp bruschetta and Mediterranean salad. Lots of locals come here as well,
