FUUD: Inferno’s Wood Fire Pizza in Kalihi

It’s an unlikely place for a pizzeria.

But in a parking lot on the corner of Kalihi Street and Nimitz Highway, two guys are serving up some of the best pizza on the island. And baking them in an 800-degree, wood-fire oven on site.

Inferno’s Wood Fire Pizza opened in August to rave reviews, especially from fans online, where word about this unusual pizzeria is growing. People love the fresh ingredients, the thin crust and, yes, even the idea of sitting in a tent in a parking lot in industrial Kalihi eating a gourmet pie.

Here’s what our recent visit looked like:
