Westshore Pizza Tampa mailed us a really good looking flyer so we took a shot to see if their pizza was just a good. Sometimes there’s nothing better for a Friday dinner then calling for delivery. We like most of the national chains with the exception of one or two. But we really prefer the local Mom & Pop pizza joints.
Westshore Pizza has a handful of locations around Tampa and their menu is quite large. Pizzas, calzones and salads are the staples, but you can also get all kinds of Italian dishes and sandwiches. It’s a great menu that really has something for everyone and they offer dine-in, carry-out and delivery.
The delivery charge for our address was $3.00 and the estimated delivery time during a peak Friday evening was 60 minutes. We couldn’t see a ‘cash’ option on the website, so we paid via credit card.
In about 45-50 minutes, our ‘pizza guy’ was here and we had our food in hand. The pizza was still warm and we liked the custom ‘Westshore Pizza’ box covered with quirky little sayings.
Antipasto Salad ($8.99) – This salad was very fresh and probably one of the best we’ve had from a pizza delivery restaurant. The lettuce was crisp and the grape tomatoes still had that ‘pop’ when you bit into them.
There was just enough cheese and cold cuts to satisfy and the Ken’s Dressing supplied is one of our favorites. The garlic knot included was a bit dense, but full of lots of yummy garlic flavor. Tip – you can customize the salad when you order online and have them hold any of the toppings.
18″ Pepperoni Pizza – ($13.99). The pizza held up well in the delivery process and it was cooked very evenly. The pepperoni had a nice spice to it and tasted like a premium version not found at most ‘national chains’.
The sauce was not overpowering and we liked that it wasn’t overly sweet. The crust had a slight chew and you could actually take a bite without the whole top sliding off. We definitely would order a pizza here again.
Westshore Pizza was a great way to unwind after a long week. The delivery service was quick, friendly and so convenient. The pizza even passed our ‘left-over’ test being just as good the following day. Our Westshore Pizza is located at 742 W Lambright Street, Tampa, FL
