This is good, fresh pizza after a long day at the beach. Everything about the pizza was fresh and the large fed 4 of us for a lighter dinner.

Really all this over $1.25. The place has to make money. Ingredients are expensive. Just enjoy this sweet find and stay positive. Remember Life will give you what you give.
