Blue Moon Pizza still going strong after decades in Atlanta

The first Blue Moon Pizza nearly twenty years ago in Marietta. Since then, they’ve garnered a loyal following and expanded to four locations in the Atlanta area. 

Disclosure: my meal at Blue Moon Pizza was complimentary

I was surprised at the large Blue Moon beer logo at the Buckhead location on the wall of their bar and asked them about any copyright issues with the beer company of the same name. They get along splendidly with Blue Moon beer manufacturers and they even came out to paint the logo on the wall. Though I’ve had beers on previous visits, this time I tried two of their specialty cocktails – The Grandma’s Paloma (blanco tequila fresh grapefruit and basil) and the Existentialist with gin and St. Germain and cucumber). Both were tasty and reasonably priced. You can see the Existentialist bottom right.

Stuffed Portabellas and Bruschetta of the day at Blue Moon Pizza

Looking over the appetizers, the garlic rolls with parmesan looked appealing as did the Bruschetta. However, as I was about the be eating a lot of dough, we  decided to get the stuffed mushrooms. These are basically Portabellas filled with a Bruschetta ingredients (they refer to it as “Grandma Sauce”). We also got the Bruschetta of the day which was topped with mushroom and fontina. Yum!

Build your own or choose from the 14 specialty pizzas they offer. We ordered two specialty pizzas in the personal size. These ain’t no Pizza Hut personal pan pizzas. They are 10 inches in diameter and have six slices per pizza. For two, you could order an appetizer and easily share one of these pizzas and leave very satisfied. Most personal pizzas are around $12. Medium pizzas (16″) are around $21 and the large (18″) are around $26. I’ve noticed that over the years, even with food prices on the rise, Blue Moon Pizza has not substantially raised their pricing.

Spicy Italian pizza at Blue moon with chicken sauasage

It is worth noting that you can even get pizzas as small as the personal size divided in half. We did that on a previous visit to Blue Moon Pizza ut not this time. On this visit we got: The Luna (chorizo sausage, caramelized onions, jalapenos, spicy ranch, black olives, cilantro) and the new Spicy Italian. On a previous visit got the Thai chicken (Seasoned chicken, spicy sesame peanut sauce topped with bean sprouts, carrots, and cilantro). I would like to go back and try the Grandma pie, a 16″ Sicilian style pizza.

The Luna pizza made with chorizo and jalapenos for those who enjoy spicy pizza

Each pizza is unique in its own way, but my personal favorite remains the Luna. I’m a sucker for chorizo, so I kind of knew I was going to love that one. The Sante Fe is rather similar and is a good alternative if you don’t do pork. Thinking of stopping in for lunch? Blue Moon pizza has some great lunch specials. The price? $5.99 for two slices of cheese pizza and a drink. Plus they even offer gluten free pizzas.

One of the cool things they are doing at Blue Moon Pizza is offering Take and Bake pizzas. They’ll pre-load the pizza with all the toppings and you take it home and bake it for your party or evening in. The pizzas are generally good for three days in the refrigerator. Your uncooked pizza comes wrapped tight and complete with baking instructions, fresh condiments and a tray to bake it on. Cost is the same as dine-in.

Blue Moon Pizza has locations in Buckhead, Sandy Springs, Vinings and Marietta.
