Several posters have sung the praises of your pizza, so I want one.  The parking situation is daunting, though, so I'd like to know about delivery options. Do you deliver within Ajijic Centro?   What's your phone number? (Don't see it on the menu).  Thanks, and best of luck!

From their FB page re: delivery

We are searching for a delivery driver! In the meantime, we are signing up with Traitte: Entregas a Domicilio! Even once we do have our own driver, we will keep Traitte for busy days so you never have to wait long for delivery!

Thanks for the number and the word that you deliver.  It may be best on the spot, but I bet it's good at home, too!

Their prices are nothing short of absolutely nuts. $120 for a salad? Same for a personal size 10" pepp pizza? Good luck. I won't be going. Let's have a little common sense, people. This is still Ajijic, much as some would have it be NOB.

EDIT: see my comments elsewhere yesterday about an excellent Italian meal for $135p that included seafood.

Address? Cross streets? Landmarks?

As noted in another thread here: It is on the mountain side of the carreterra just west of Colon. Used to be Rustico restaurant.

@ManxMan We are at Carretera Oriente #7, between Marcos Castellanos and Colon. Attached to Mias Boutique and directly across from the Sutidorde la Ribera. 

@ComputerGuy Our prices are based on cost and profit margin, like every functioning business. We use imported yeast, flour, tomatoes, and cheese to start, plus high-quality ingredients for the rest of the menu, including local organic butter, local sausage, local organic goat cheese etc. The cost of banana peppers alone is quite high due to it being a speciality product here. If I could keep the business running at lower costs with the same ingredients, I would! Every restaurant has a profit margin on their costs, so if another place has another meal cheaper, their costs are lower to start with. Maybe one day you will give us a shot!

I think the prices shown on the menu are very reasonable.  They are lower than those of another pizza place I've been buying from because of their quality ingredients.  After reading the post listing "purple's" ingredients, I'm very impressed.

Had one delivered Saturday,  not bad but a little light on both sauce and cheese. Not as good as either Perrys or M&J.

A comment from a Mexican friend was that with that menu they were not looking for Mexican customers.

PERRY'S??? Have you had it recently?  It was good in the beginning, but IMO, went seriously downhill.

There is a big difference in "Mexican" pizza and the kind those from NOB are used to, and often prefer.  Sauces are sweeter and fewer "Italian" ingredients are there, so your Mexican friend is probably right.  I won't comment on the "Purple" or M&J pizzas since I have had neither as yet.

I appreciate your sincerity and your response, and wish you luck.

I know that no pizza down here will come close to what I liked "up north". 

And you know what? 

I don't care. 

To be able to eat a different, but yummy-for-my-tummy, pizza with a cold brew or two in snow-free, warm weather with like-minded friends with nothing on the calendar but lunch and dinner dates is a pretty good trade off.

Pizza is like a pretty face; we all have our preferences, but does that stop you from looking? 

No.

Unless it's a pizza-face. 

I don't know... I'll just let myself out.

For a authentic tasting Italian pizza, I've been buying mine at Jitomate, next door to Ancla restaurant west of Ajijic.  There is also a thrift store in the strip.  It's not inexpensive and there are various sizes at different prices.

I'm planning to give the "purple" pizza a try, but if it isn't better...Jitomate may be worth the drive.  I'll see.

We got a pizza from Purple Garlic last night. As Mrs Rupert said above, it was "just okay."  We really like M&J Pizza and will stick with that.

If they are importing ingredients he should be able to make a better pizza. San Marzano tomatoes really do make a difference. mexican cheeses simply do not match real mozzarella. Semolina flour is probably available here. So he should be the best in town. I paid 200 pesos for a prosciutto pizza at M&J just the other day and the meat was sparingly applied. So what are pizza prices state side these days?

Depends. Are you asking about 2-for-1 places, Papa John's, Pizza Pizza... or real pizza places?

My most favorite pizza is a Colorado Mountain Pie from Beau Jo's in Idaho Springs. A 10" pizza with 4 ingredients (your choice) is $19. And worth every penny IMHO.

Baltimore Dockside, pretty twinkling lights overhead and 5 adults, 2 pre-teens, 6 beers, 1 wine, 2 pops, water all around, 2 salads split to serve 4 and 2 pizzas 13" with 4 toppings = $185.  Pizza Parlor on the water out of the city center.  We paid it with a straight face.  Wasn't easy.

Hello!

I went through our menu, adding up all of the options you listed above using our highest priced item in each category, and the total came to 1105 pesos. About $59 USD! So it only gets cheaper from there! Give us a try :)
