This place is called Magazine Pizza because it’s located on Magazine Street. In fact, it’s only one block west of the National WWII museum, which you really should visit if you come to New Orleans. So if you’re at the museum and you get an urge for some good pizza, walk one block to the west. Or if you want to eat at a really good, kind of upscale seafood restaurant, walk two blocks to the east (Report #101). Or you could just eat AT the WWII museum. They have a couple dining options.
Very small place. Guys were heading out carrying pizzas for delivery the whole time we were there, so if you’re staying at one of the numerous hotels in the CBD or French Quarter I’m assuming they will deliver to you. Nice looking menu offering appetizers, salads, calzones, gourmet pizzas, hot sandwiches, including a burger and veggie burger and wraps. I love the little two tiered stands on the tables to hold your pizzas, because who can order just ONE pizza? We were told to try the Macho Man, which is topped with mozzarella cheese, pepperoni, Italian sausage, ground beef, ham, bacon and tomato sauce, and the Grilled Shrimp pizza, topped with mozzarella, grilled shrimp, roasted garlic, onion, chopped tomato and a garlic herb butter sauce.
The crust on both pizzas was great. One thing I hate about meat pizzas is sometimes they put so much meat on them they get greasy. That wasn’t the case here. Perfect amount of meat- rough cut bacon, chunks of ham, it was very good. And they didn’t skimp on the cheese on either pizza.
I just LOVE roasted garlic. The Grilled Shrimp pizza was full of it. As you can see from the pictures every time you’d serve a slice, a whole toe of delicious, soft, roasted garlic would fall off. I’d immediately claim it as mine.
Great place for great pizza. I highly recommend it.
