A beer and a pizza- it's a tempting combination. Whether you’re ending a long, malnourished day or spending a night out on the town, it’s hard to go wrong with a combo like this. Here are five Largo area restaurants that do it right, with variety and affordability in mind.
999 Missouri Ave. S.
When it comes to their Sicilian style pizza, Big Mike’s does it, well, big. Their 16-inch-by-16-inch thick, pillowy crust Sicilian ($14.45) satisfies any big appetite. They also serve a white pizza ($10.45 – $11.95) as well as a traditional oven-baked ($10.45 – $11.95) one.
Daily drink specials like $8 buckets of Bud or Bud Light and 2 for 1 well drinks make for some good pizza wash-down.
118 West Bay Drive
Featured in last week’s restaurant review, La Pizza Mia serves up authentic, oven-baked pizzas at affordable prices. Toppings like pepperoni, sausage, onions, hot peppers, and mushrooms give you room for customization and an assortment of imported and domestic bottled beers will pair nicely. A small 12-inch pizza will run you $6.95, while a large 16-inch is $9.95, and an extra large 18-inch is $11.95.
2819 West Bay Drive
Pizza, at a seafood joint? Oh yes. Served up on a flatbread crust, the personal pizzas at Marlin Darlin are as equally delicious as they are creative. Choose from the shrimp and chorizo ($9.00) with spinach and four cheeses; the pear and bacon ($9.50) with onions, four cheeses, and roasted garlic, and many more. The beer list is extensive with a number of delicious craft beers like Sierra Nevada, Rogue Dead Guy Ale, and Abita Turbo Dog.
12561 Ulmerton Rd.
If you’re looking for some more out-of-the-norm type pizza, Pizza Uno is your place. Boasting a monstrous menu of different, unique pizzas, Uno’s has their culinary bases covered. From the bacon cheeseburger ($9.99 - $13.99) to the chicken broccoli alfredo ($10.99 - $15.99) and the philly cheese ($10.99 - $15.99), there’s got to something you’ll love on the menu. Bottled beer classics like Bud, Bud Light, Coors, Heineken, and Corona will surely compliment the tastebuds as well.
131 Clearwater Largo Rd.
One great thing about Bella D’Ora’s is on Monday and Tuesday you get a free 60-ounce pitcher of beer with a purchase of $15 or more. Let’s not kid ourselves, when it comes to pizza that ain’t much. Their New York hands tossed pizzas are the stars of the show though. With an impressively extensive list of toppings like pepperoncini, feta cheese, salami, bacon, even eggplant, you’ll have an undecidedly good time creating the perfect pie.
