Hey Stacey, thank you so much for taking the time to leave such a great review. If your local was the one at Belmont it saddened me to hear it had shut, we need more independent Pizza places. I am talking to the owner to see if we can help out any of his staff with work. Looking forward to... More

Haven't been back to Big Mammas for some time believe there could be new owners since my last visit. But must say that the pizza and service has definitely improved. Will be frequently much more regularly.

By American standards, this is not good pizza. We are from the Chicago area so in those terms, this is really not good pizza. We had 3 pizzas for 4 adults and 2 kids.. seafood, everything, cheese only. The cheese was fine. After that, seafood does not belong on a pizza mate. Nor does pineapple. Yes, you can find fruit...

Best pizzas I've had in a very long time. Theyve got plenty of toppings and great tasting pizza sauces. Do yourself a favor and grab a pizza I've never been anything other than satisfied. Satay chicken is a favorite of ours 👍

BM's does really good pizzas. I can't think of too many better ones this side of the lake or even Newcastle more generally. Good mix of traditional and alternative toppings, good bases and great service. Hot tip: grab a pizza and go sit on the beach and enjoy. A great way to spend a summer afternoon.

Big mammas pizza was a pleasure for receiving my business! terrific sizing and amount of toppings on pizzas and also very tasty! the owner and staff are very welcoming, best pizzas I've had, good pricing also on the size of pizza, don't bother getting a half topped dominoes or Pizza Hut pizza, do yourself a favour and try big mammas...

We generally do take away but have also eaten in. Fairly basic eat in facilities are countered by the friendly welcoming attitude by the staff who all seem to get on really well. This produces a good vibe to the place. Pizzas are all excellent and served with a smile. Highly recommended.
