Everybody around here in Catfish County likes good pizza. But sometimes you’ve just got to road-trip it to get the best taste.
The next time you’re vacationing over in Hilton Head, SC, drop by Giuseppi’s Pizza & Pasta. They’re located in The Plaza at Shelter Cove. They also have a location in Bluffton.
Their pizza is remarkable and the beer is cold. In our experiences, the kids who work there are awesome. As expected, Giuseppi’s features lots of specialty pies in all configurations.
Besides the pizza, Giuseppi’s serves what’s called the Weggie. We love the Weggie. It’s a cross between a pizza and a calzone. The menu says, “We start with our homemade hand tossed pizza dough, add fresh ingredients, then we fold it and bake it to a golden brown.” The original Weggie has ham and pepperoni, Grande cheese blend, lettuce, tomato, red onions and Giuseppi’s homemade ranch. They also offer a Greek Weggie and a Roman Weggie among others. Of course, you can create your own.
Because Giuseppi’s Pizza is so popular, it does tend to get crowded in the summertime. And at peak times in the South Carolina heat, the poor ol’ air conditioner just can’t keep up. So if you’re there when it’s hot, just sit back and enjoy something cool until they call your name. You’ll be glad you did.
