In your opinion which cruise line/ship has the best pizza?

Recommended Posts

I've have had pizza on the brain lately & was thinking what others opinions might be? So far in my crusing experience I would have give the nod for best pizza on a cruise ship to the incredible thin crust Pizza aboard the Ruby Princess. Hoping we will find that same quailty of pizza onboard other cruise lines and ships on future sailings...

 

 

Even Dawgs love pizza! ;)

Hello Navy,

 

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!:)

Just got off the Carnival Pride and Splendor before that. Pizza was good, especially the Chevre (chicken, garlic, goat cheese). Didn't care for the pizza on RCCL.

RCCL's pizza is the worst!

A big slice of leftover Ruby Princess 5 cheese pizza would have been sweet packing in lunch box this morning. Can't say that about the fries! :eek:

Ok, this is the easiest question we have ever answered on CC. Without a doubt the best pizza at sea is to be found on Princess ships. 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.

So far Celebrity wins. But I have to say, Carnival's ain't bad (and I'm not crazy about Carnival's food in general).

 

Why is Celebs so good? The crust? The sauce? Cheese or toppings?

Would be interested as we'll be on Celeb in April 11

i vote for princess. icome from new york and princess makes the best. it's made fresh and thin, the way pizza'a suppposed to be. most of the other lines use that boboli garbage, which to me is just thick bread dough, but to alot of people that's real pizza. some people even think pizza hut is real pizza. princess is by the best.

Carnival was definitley the best! I've been on RCCL, NCL, and Costa. All great lines, just not great pizza. And pizza is one of my favorite foods, so I have tried them all!

None of them. Some lines have bad pizza (actually most lines have bad pizza) and some (a few) have not so bad pizza but if you really like pizza, take a cruise to either Chicago or NYC.

Don,

 

I agree there is great pizza to be found all over Chicago. My personal fav is the 5 cheese at Pete's on Western! Having never had pizza in NY I cannot give an honest opinion, it is on my bucket list! I will say, you didn't really answer my question which was:

 

"In your opinion which cruise line/ship has the best pizza?"

 

So a correct answer would be any cruise line of your choosing, you just have to choose one!

Sorry Don "No more pizza for U!"

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.:rolleyes:

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?

What's the mosy important ingredient in a cruise ship pizza?

 

The crust? The Sauce? The toppings?

 

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. ;)

definitely Princess....thin New York style pizza...then Disney and Carnival...

 

Thin? New York? That isn't pizza. Chicago Pan pizza, that's pizza!

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 :eek:

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. ;)
