Al's Pizza is not your average pizzeria. Founded in 1988, Al's Pizza combines old world quality, values and work ethic with new world ambiance and award winning appeal. When immigrating to the United States in 1978, Al brought with him the traditions, passion for excellence and commitment to quality that makes Al's Pizza what it is today.
After working in some of New Jersey and New York's finest pizzerias for 10 years, Al opened his first location in Jacksonville, Florida. Refusing to use frozen dough, conveyor ovens, canned vegetables, or many other shortcuts used by other restaurants, Al began setting the standard for his award winning pizza. Today, Al's continues to make fresh dough daily - often twice daily- from scratch. Produce is delivered 6 days a week to ensure only the freshest ingredients possible. Al's only uses one hundred percent whole milk mozzarella grated daily on site and nothing but fresh toppings, as Al knows there is no substitute for quality.
While quality, handmade pizza created in the classic New York tradition is the cornerstone of Al's Pizza, the ambiance of the restaurant adds to its appeal. Casual and stylish, the restaurants are a warm take on a contemporary vibe. Sleekly designed with cool fixtures and unexpectedly elegant twists, Al's is a place you can go for a glass of wine with friends or take the entire little league team out for a Sicilian pizza.
