¿Has anyone noticed that high white one story building on the canal to the side of a laundromat, that has NO doors or windows? :omg:

I am wondering:
--¿What will they do IF by chance it rains?
(Luckily for them, we have had only one brief Sunday rain in at least 4 months or so, if not more.)
--¿How do they lock up at night when employees leave?

The business is Vivan Las Pizzas, where it appears that they make the pizzas and other food items for DELIVERY.
They have a separate restaurant en la colonia Dario Galeana.

They may just shutter it once the rain starts and things slow down. I for one can't believe they are as busy as they are. I recently had friends visiting from NJ. My buddies 11yo wanted pizza so I brought them one from VLP, which used to be the closest thing to good NJ pizza here. After taking one bite he would not eat it. I tried it (first time in a loong time) and it was bad. They have gone way downhill. The crust is especially bad, more like a roll than pizza crust. I make my pizza at home. now.

Not to criticize anyone, but we have our own tastes here regarding pizzas, and if you're looking for pizza that tastes just like back home, wherever that is, you are never going to find it here unless it's someplace that caters strictly to foreign tourists and they import many of their ingredients. Personally I miss the old Kon-Tiki that had what many locals considered the best pizza in the region, though it had little in common with any pizza I ever ate in the States. Nevertheless, we almost always enjoy our pizza wherever it's from. Maybe someday you and your friends will, too.

Been here over 4 years now Rob. Sorry, first had VLP a long time ago while on vacation. The reason for the change is not peoples taste here, it's that they are using cheaper ingredients to save cash. Nothing else. They use cheaper cheese and have stopped using high gluten flour. Sure people have different tastes but your stretching it here. I live right up the street and see the products being delivered almost daily. In addition I have a friend who works for a company that used to supply the cheese, no longer. For one reason price.

Hello Flatlander

It looks like I have everyone stumped.
And subject changed to pizzas.

So, it looks like I will have to go there myself, and see IF anyone is willing to reply to this mystery.

We had them deliver once last winter and ate in once. Still love it. Probably the best burger in town, too.

We aren't crazy about Jungle Pizza. Different tastes.....

We like!!Vivan las Pizzas.
A couple of visits every winter with groups of friends. Always fun. Good food!!
Haven't noticed any change in quality or food this last year.
A great Zihua town sunset view from the restaurant upper decks.
Quiet, peaceful, friendly neighborhood.
Best margaritas in town (IMHO).
Hope they are still there next year!

Not much doubt they will be here next year. They are always busy. Except for the dogs and motos the neighborhood is very peaceful. Only one PIA I know of.

A little out of the way, but grab a cab up to Pizza Majahua, the last place at the top of the hill, on the way to Ixtapa by the back way. Best pizza in town - according to this expert. A favourite of Lady M's, and those Arkansans know their pizza. :-)

I've heard about it. Seriously though Arkansas and pizza? NY, Philadelphia, Chicago OK but, Arkansas. I could see possum pie, fried pickles, bbq, buscuits and gravy but pizza, not so sure. All in fun.

Totally agree! As good a pizza as you'll find anywhere. They do burgers too that look very tasty, but their pizza is so good I've never tried their burgers. It's a family owned spot. Carol has told us they live there. Incredibly hospitable. One of our new favorite places.

It's actually a pretty easy walk. You can see the location on google maps. After you cross the bridge on the way to La Noria it's at most a 15 minute walk.
