So far, the Sapphire Princess has had the best pizza for us. My favorite was the white pizza they had when we were going through Glacier Bay.

Least favorite was on the Sovereign of the Seas. I couldn't even finish one piece.

They make the dough from scratch, use specially trained pizza cooks, its fresh, and wonderful. We say this having cruised on 12 differrent lines. There is a reason for the great pizza on Princess. Several years ago there was an Italian cruise line called Sitmar (we loved that line) that had real pizza parlors on all their ships (staffed with Italian cooks). When Princess bought out Sitmar they made a wise decision and decided to keep the pizza parlors (on the existing Sitmar ships). When they realized it was so darn popular they simply kept up the tradition.

Good to know... that is awesome! I do LOVE Carnival pizza though, and the cruise is way cheaper! I'm with you, though... WISE decision... that almost sounds awesome enough for me to book a Princess cruise... maybe when it's just me and a friend and not my whole family of 5! lol

Why was it called white pizza? Was it made up of only white cheeses?

Sorry I missed your white pizza question earlier. Mabell is correct that is doesn't have any red sauce. It has something like a garlic butter in place of the red sauce and then a mix of cheeses.

For me, it is a mix of the crust, sauce, and toppings. I typically prefer this crusts, but there was just something so tasty about Princess' crusts that I didn't mind that they were thin.

Overall flavor is definitely the most important part for me.

I like the pizza on Carnival but I don't have anything to compare it to. I prefer a thicker crust. I have seen people eat NY style pizza who claim they like thin crust but then fold the pizza before they eat it. Isn't that like having a thicker crust pizza?

I agree with you only whne I am in Chicago..lol....but since no one outside of a 10 mile radius of chicago can do a good deep dish..its safer with thin style...hard to mess up (but some still do)

Do any cruise lines have breakfast pizza?

There is a frozen brand we love, it has sausage gravy on top of a thin crust, topped with egg & cheese, topped w/ sausage. Fresh out of da oven it's great. But if it sits very long...not too good cold

I've never cruised Carnival, only RCL, Celebrity, & most recently Princess.
Good to hear Carnival has great pizza too!


Here is a short video of the incredibly talented Pizza & pastry chef Antionio ("Tony" from Italy) aboard the Ruby this past March.

I wish I had a couple slices of that for lunch right now!

I was on the CROWN Princess in 2006. I just watched your video and Antonio was on the Crown as a pastry chef and he made the pizza out by the pool. Hands down the best I've had on cruise ships by far.

If I were physically FORCED to choose the best pizza on any cruiseline, it would be Princess, but the fact is that, like bagels, New York does it like nobody else.
