The place I currently work in is a 5 minute walk from Solo Pizza but I don’t eat there because they open at 6pm. Luckily after nagging the owners long enough they will be opening up from 1pm – 11pm starting from tomorrow until the holy month of Ramadan starts, so that’s around 6 weeks total.
I’ve seen this oven more times than I can remember. Although the ad needed some color corrections and minor fixes here and there it turned out nice. Of course watching the it makes you crave having one of their pizza’s again, I do recommend trying their honey pizza and garlic bread for appetizer (both aren’t listed on the menu).
On my previous visit, I wanted to try everything that wasn’t on their menu. For those that haven’t visited Solo Pizza, they’re a small pizza place with Kuwaiti staff that makes really good Naples based pizza. I didn’t try everything that wasn’t on their menu because you can always customize a pizza the way you like it and they’ll make one for you.
We started off with garlic bread for appetizer which I wish I knew about earlier. It’s one of my favourite garlic breads so far, most restaurants do a bad job at making them anyway. The garlic bread looks different as the cheese is inside while wrapped with bread. You get around 11 pieces.
The pizza I tried was extraordinary because it was a honey pizza with smoked salame. I wasn’t too sure about having honey on my pizza but it turned out better than expected. The honey won’t overtake your taste buds, rather you’ll get a light taste of it. I would recommend this pizza for the adventurous type that constantly wants to try something new.There are no photos with those IDs or post 12159 does not have any attached images!
When you hear there’s pizza in Kuwait cooked the way pizza was originally cooked in Italy you can’t help but go have a bite. From what I heard about this place I was expecting my soul to depart my body with joy the moment I had a taste. Well that didn’t happen, the pizza was great but it wasn’t superb. I really admire the Kuwaiti’s who came up with the idea as the staff is currently 100% Kuwaiti.
The pizza remains in the oven for about a minute with a certain fixed temperature. It is then extracted and is ready to be served. The chef has a certificate obtained from Naples for making pizza. This is currently the only place in Kuwait with a seal of authenticity, by the “Vera Pizza Napoletana”. The store currently only opens from 6p.m to 11p.m. We came at around 8p.m before it got crowded.
My friend ordered the traditional Margherita. Though we really wanted to try a pepperoni but they said because it is on demand it will be coming soon. As you can tell this isn’t your normal margherita. This is actually what it is suppose to look like but thanks to Pizza Hut and Dominos we have a different understanding of what a margarita looks like.
I ordered the Special Mushroom pizza which isn’t available on the menu. To my surprise the pizza doesn’t come sliced, you eat it with a knife and fork. I don’t recommend eating the pizza that way as it gets aggravating sometimes. Just ask them to slice it for you. Each pizza costs 3.5KD which I found reasonable. It won’t completely fill your stomach but it’s good enough for a meal.
