“Maui's best brick oven pizza”

The Pizza Connection
Ranked #118 of 264 Restaurants in Lahaina
Price range: $12 - $20
Cuisines: Pizza
Description: Established in 2013. The Pizza Connection is Maui's newest mobile pizza oven. Available for catering, events, and pizza parties! Find us throughout the week in front of AAAAA Rent A Space, Kaanapali, HI. Owners Andy and Jamy share similar travel backgrounds from Italy to New Mexico. It is here on Maui where they worked at a local restaurant making pizzas that they decided to start their own biz. From years of experience, Andy's keenness for just the right tomato sauce and dough which inspired the idea for TPC paired with Jamy's support and kitchen skills, they knew they could offer some delicious product. Wanting to use fresh ingredients and green energy, we purchase local produce from small farms, make our own hand rolled dough, have local wood for the oven, and installed solar panels on the trailer.

“Maui's best brick oven pizza”
Reviewed July 19, 2014

We were in Maui a week ago and stumbled upon an incredible pizza. This pizza Connection is located in a parking lot at 3461 Honoapillani Rd. Don't let that stop you from trying this incredible pizza. The pizza is baked in a brick oven that is 800 degrees. This is a 2 man team along with a person to take your order. Sometimes, its the cooks girlfriend and their 15 mo old baby. The guy who makes the pizza dough is from Italy and definitely knows his dough. The team comes up with some incredible specials. There are a few tables and you can go next store to the ABC store to purchase your favorite beverage. Although you might think this isn't what you would be doing in Maui it truly is an unbelievable gourmet brick oven pizza for a steal of a deal.
We ate there 2 times in less than a week. We even shared our leftovers with strangers just because we were so excited to eat such yummy pizza. The dough is soft and velvety with a crisp crust. The flavors in the sauce and the toppings are better than we have ever eaten.
If you want an awesome experience with delicious pizza you must stop by. BTW, I think they open at 5pm daily. You will have an experience to talk about to take back to the mainland for sure.

“Gourmet pizza in a parking lot”
Reviewed July 14, 2014

We found this place early on during our trip to Maui and ended up eating there on our last night of our stay. A two man team making gourmet pizzas off the back of a trailer and cooking them two at a time in an 800 degree wood fired oven. The cook's wife took our order with her 15 week old child cradled in her arms. Other patrons offered up their table to us when they were done, but they stayed to order another pizza to go, they enjoyed it so much. And, so did we. My wife and I only hope they are still in business when we return...
