New Pizza In Okinawa

Date Posted: 2002-02-28

Many of you might already be familiar with the Pizza In restaurant located right outside Kadena Air Base’s Gate 1, but for those who are not, this is a good pizza restaurant with a family atmosphere. Pizza In offers a variety of different types of pizza and has all you-can-eat lunch and dinner buffets where you can have your fill. During their buffet hours, visitors have unlimited access to their pizza, salad and bread bar, and unlike many restaurants off base, the restaurant also gives free refills on all soft drinks.

The luncheon buffet runs from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., and the dinner buffet goes from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Both are only $7 or ¥890, and if you come between 5:00 p.m. and 11:00 p.m., draft beer costs only $1.50, or ¥190.

The buffet is certainly popular with both foreigners and locals alike. Pizza In is an affordable spot for a large lunch or dinner. The restaurant has an American-style setup, but the pizzas are unique in their style and combinations. “We use 25 toppings on our pizzas, so with all the combinations we try, we make many different kinds of pizza,” says manager Takashi Gushiken. The pizza is quite different from any of the mainstream American pizza restaurants. Pizza In has the same basic layout as its American counterparts that offer pizza buffets, but here the pizza is cooked differently, and some of the pizzas invented here will surprise you.

Pizza In opened 17 years ago and is the only restaurant off base with a salad bar, free refills and unlimited access to a pizza bar. For such an affordable price, you’ll leave stuffed. “We also use our own original cheese and Italian sauce, so nobody else uses the same products,” says Gushiken. The restaurant has also started a new take-out special. For ¥1,500, you can buy an extra-large, 16” two-topping pizza, or for ¥2,000 you can get two large 14” one-topping pizzas.

Pizza In accepts reservations for private parties and will negotiate on the cost. If you would like to reserve for a party of 20 or less people, call 098-926-2225. For good pizza and affordable prices in a great family restaurant environment, drop by Pizza In. They are open from 11:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. daily and are located directly across the street from Kadena Air Base’s Gate 1, next to Momo 2000.
