Their original pizzas are available with either a thin, crispy or a thick, New York-style crust, made with a wide variety of toppings including sausage and jalapeno pepper. The interior of Pizza in Okinawa is filled with a nostalgia reminiscent of the period of U.S. occupation.

Takeout pizza is also available for unbelievably reasonable prices.
