Doughlicious is a tiny, homely restaurant that will even deliver your pizza to the nearest bars. The owners are an incredibly hardworking couple, who serve up the most scrumptious of pizzas. The toppings are incredible and the cheese is melted to perfection. Expect to wait at Doughlicious, but it will be worth it and as soon as you sit down they’ll bring you a jug of ice cold water.

2. JJ Dolan's

Bar, Pizzeria, Pub, Irish, Fast Food, American

Expect to find handcrafted pizzas and handcrafted drinks here. At JJ Dolan’s, customers can treat themselves to the famous pizzas, complete with a thin crust and numerous toppings. Renowned for doing one of the best white pizzas on the island, JJ Dolan’s is certainly a pizza parlor you can’t miss. The serving size is huge, so ordering just one between two to share would be recommended. If you are looking for something lighter, they do have a pizza by the window. They don’t take reservations and do get quite busy, so do expect to have a short wait.

3. North Shore Farms

Farm Shop, Farmers' Market, Market, Vegetarian, Healthy

At just over six dollars a slice, this pizza is not cheap but it is worth every penny. On a Saturday morning, head over to the North Shore farmers market and try the stellar pesto pizza. The dough is generously smothered with a layer of homemade pesto, and then covered in warm mozzarella, topped with local tomatoes. Cooked until the pizza is golden and crispy, the pizza may not be traditional but it is definitely one of the best in Honolulu.
