Reviewed December 31, 2012

Great pizza and atmosphere. Very crowded, though, so be prepared to wait. Drink menu looked very enticing, but also more $$ than I was willing to spend. Not a cheap, cheap place, but food great.

“Unique Food!”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

I have never had Thai curry on a pizza before, and I did not regret ordering it at Base Camp. I only wish I'd been in Tahoe for more time so I could have tried all their pizzas.

“Delicious”
Reviewed December 27, 2012 via mobile

This restaurant serves really great pizza, not too thick and not too thin but just right. There are three size options as well as a create your own pizza so everyone can get what they want. Our server was friendly and chatty without being too over the top. The restaurant was packed but the food came out quickly. Left with a doggy bag and even reheated a few hours later the pizza tasted good.

“Great Pizza Fresh”
Reviewed December 26, 2012

Loved that I could taste the sweetness of the peppers amongst the cheeziness and other delicious ingredients in the pizza. Great staff thanks!
