Description: "Sally O'Neal's Pizza Hotline" is a family owned and operated business that has served South Tampa since 1985. We have always tried to listen to you, our customer, and give you the best product and service that you truly deserve. Our Pizza is made from the finest, pure natural ingredients we can buy. We go the extra mile on quality, and that means more work for us but greater satisfaction for you. We buy fresh baker's yeast and high-gluten flour for our dough. We go to the Farmer's Market for our fresh vegetables. We make our own sauces, marinades and salad dressings from my own recipes. We buy only the best quality meats. Chicken breasts are marinated in fresh garlic and lemon and then poached before they ever see the pizza. Bacon is double-smoked - and double the flavor! Beef is low in fat. Sausage and Pepperoni are the best in the industry. We use Smoked Buffet ham that is strong in flavor. Cheeses are carefully tasted and freshly grated. Our White Pizza Base has five different cheeses and a selection of herbs and spices. All this attention to detail adds up to a product of superior taste and quality for which we have won many culinary awards as well as national recognition as the best independent pizza business in Tampa Bay.

I've had lunch here with a couple of coworkers in the last few months. Each time has been a great experience all around. It doesn't look like much from the outside (nor the inside), but their pizza and garlic breadsticks are truly amazing. I've had their whole wheat crust and their regular crust. The wheat crust is surprisingly tasty and crisp, and doesn't really taste like whole wheat. It's only noticeable in the color of the crust and the texture. A great alternative for those who can't take the heavy crust. Their regular crust is the best I've had in a long time. It almost seems like the crust is basted with garlic and butter. Honestly, everything about this pizza is wonderful. The sauce, the high quality toppings, and the cheese all contribute to it's great taste. What really keeps me coming back for more is their amazing garlic breadsticks. They bring you a plate of these soft pizza dough strips covered with garlic, butter, and parmesan cheese. There is a pizza sauce on the side to dip it in, but you don't even need to dip it to enjoy it. They are totally awesome! All I can say is that this is now my new favorite pizza place in Tampa. I can see why it's a local favorite.

The sausage pizza was surprisingly good for Florida. I still think it's hard to beat New York and Chicago for pizza. The service was excellent and the food prompt. The salad had too much cheese for my liking.

This appears to be a "hole in the wall"...but is a local favorite. Offers pizzas, salads & other Italian dishes...but the white pizza, with chicken, garlic & feta is DA BOMB!!!!!! Unfortunately, prices reflect being close to a landmark, Bayshore Blvd.
