Ozona Pizza, a step beyond the ordinary
So, you are in the mood for a Pizza. But, not just any pizza, one with the toppings heaped haplessly on top. Afterall you are a pizza connoisseur, not just the average consumer or carnivore looking to ravage the ordinary Pizza. You know what you like and what is good for you! Wait, what? Yes, you know that you love pizza, but you also know there are better options, dare I say, “healthier” options! Options, you say? Yes, options like gluten free or Vegan Pizza, that are not only better for you, but taste awesome and satisfy the cravings, the rumble inside! Enter Ozona Pizza!
Where in the world?
Ozona, a quaint little community in Pinellas County, Florida, United States, located 4 miles north of downtown Dunedin. Just a few blocks off the beaten path of Alternate 19, 404 Orange Street, to be exact! And, just so you don’t pass it by, look for the bicycle mailbox and chalkboard sign tucked under a massive oak tree! Plug it into your GPS or just ask SIRI, I’m sure she has heard of Ozona Pizza! Heck, it really doesn’t matter how you get here! But, you’re gonna wanna check this place out!
As we drove up and parked beneath the spreading oak,
I climbed out in my usual fashion, camera in hand, clicking away. Mumbling things like OMG what a cool place! Excited, like a little school boy having found buried treasure, just where the old pirate map, had said that it would be! Denise, check out the mailbox and did you see that… Just about that time, a man, with pizza in hand made his quick exit, obviously a man on a mission! Paused to say “hey, are you going to Ozona Pizza? Good, go inside, grab a soda, a menu and have a seat I will be right back!” Say what? Did we just stumble into Mayberry, USA?
Good ole southern hospitality, right out of the car and we haven’t even entered the building! And, who these days, tells you to help yourself! Can this get any better? Well, yes it can! Enter the pizza!
Ozona Pizza, you say?
Well, if you have never heard of Ozona Pizza or their awesome slice, that might be understandable, based on you possibly living in a box for the last 8 years! LOL (Just kidding!)

Not just the delivery guy!
It turns out, that the pizza delivery guy, well he was none other than the owner of Ozona Pizza himself! Yep, out to deliver the best pizza in town, I might add!
Yeah, Michael Perkins is the chief cook and bottle washer at this local legend. He came back from his delivery, went into the galley, delivered a hot pizza to the customers in the booth behind us and then proceed to take our order! Now, that sentence alone has me out of breath, and I’m not the one doing all the work!
Yeah, he took our order, but not before properly introducing himself
And, asking if we had ever been there before and how we had heard about them! Customer service in this day and age is a glorious thing, and yes, it still exists in the heart of America. I told him, that my Facebook Friend, Kristina Wood had shared a few photos of his Gluten Free Pizza online. (Thank you Kristina, awesome recommendation!)
Well, I have rambled on enough for one day!
Besides, this is a place that you need to experience for yourself! Ozona Pizza has an awesome web site with hours, location, and complete menu. Be sure to check it out before you go! Or, use it to order online, I understand the delivery is as good as the pizza! (although I find that hard to believe!) LOL
Oh, and don’t forget dessert, they have hand dipped ice cream!
For my handi-capable friends
Ozona Pizza is handicap friendly and quite accessible. So when you have a little time, go on down to Ozone Pizza, bring your camera take a few shots, relax and be sure to bring your appetite, that pizza ain’t gonna eat itself!
If you stop by Ozona Pizza, tell Michael we said hello!
