I love this pizza. It has the best thin crust pizza I have had in Florida. The sauce is so sweet and delicious it is ridulous. Go for the buffet at lunch. People are going through it so fast I have no idea how they keep it up.

Yesterday was the first time I had tried Paul's Chicago Pizza. How I missed this gem of a restaurant is beyond me. This was without a doubt the BEST pizza I have EVER had in my entire life. The crust was perfect - thin and crispy. The toppings were delicious and generously applied. The value is outstanding. If you haven't tried Paul's yet, you are missing out!

Discovered Paul's about 3 years ago and have been singing it's praises ever since. Even my husband (non-chicagoan) trys to steer me near Paul's whenever possible. Love the take and bake. Tell anyone I know from chi-town it is a must. Now if we only had a white castle.
Paul we want a Paul's in Palm Harbor!!!

If you grew up in Chicago, you will know that Paul's is no imposter. It took us 15 years of living in the sunshine state to find real Chicago style pizza and you know what we mean - paper thin crust cooked crisp but lite, sweet tomato sauce, just the right amount of real cheese, cut into squares. This is NOT chain pizza or deep dish pizza or all the other types of pizza people NOT from Chicago think is Chicago style pizza. Sorry Windy City Pizza and Giordano's but you guys are not Paul's. This is the real deal. You will love it as we drive 40 minutes one-way for it as often as we can!!!! We have lived in West Palm, Boca, Jupiter, Fort Myers, Tallahassee, Brandon, and Miami. The closest to Paul's was the old broken down County Line Pizza back in 1989 on the Palm Beach Martin County line which moved south past Juno Beach into a hidden strip mall and the rest is history. Enjoy Paul's.

As someone who doesn't like to ""wing"" it when going out to eat I rely heavily on other peoples reviews.As Paul's had several great reviews I decided to go there on a Sunday afternoon. My friends the previous posts were right on, the pizza was excellent. I ordered a small peperoni pie, the crust was superb and the sauce was excellent. If you are in or about Pinellas County I highly recommend you give Paul's a visit.

anna from ohio needs to go back there.
paul's has the best pizza anywhere, and if you can find one nearly as good anywhere else, i doubt it!!
definitely deserved to be named one of the ten best pizza's in the tampa bay area, as was in last month's st. pete times.
just was up in chicago, and had many pizzas, none came close to paul's.

I ordered a pizza with a coupon from entertainment book, after I placed the order they said it wasn't good on delivery...it never stated that on the coupon and should havde been disclosed on the coupon. As a manager myself I would have made an exception and accepted the coupon. Instead my husband had to go and pick up the pizza just so we could use the coupon. Lack of good judgement if you ask me. I love their pizza but will think twice next time we want a pizza and they are on every corner.

I HAVE HAD A LOT OF PIZZA, BUT NONE CAN COMPARE TO THE EXCELLENT INGREDIENTS AND SUPERB CRUST OF PAULS'. HIS BREAD FOR HIS SANDWICHES COMES FROM GONNELLA BAKING IN CHICAGO AND HIS CHEESE ON HIS PIZZA IS A SPECIAL BLEND.HE WILL GIVE YOU A LIST OF ALL HIS INGREDIENTS, BUT, THE SECRET IS HOW MUCH OF EACH DOES ONE USE AND HOW ARE THEY BLENDED TO GET THAT PERFECT TASTE SENSATION THAT MAKES YOUR MOUTH WATER WITH THE FIRST BITE MAKING YOU WANT MORE!!!!!HIS SERVICE IS THE BEST WHETHER DINING IN OR USING HOME DELIVERY. IT IS HOT AND FRESH EVERY TIME AND IF THERE IS A PROBLEM, PAUL WILL TAKE CARE OF IT PERSONALLY. YOUR SATISFACTION IS OF UTMOST IMPORTANTCY TO HIM. TRY ONE OF HIS OTHER MENU ITEMS ALSO> HE HAS A DELICIOUS LUNCH BUFFET!!! DON'T MISS OUT ON THE BEST TREAT YOUR TASTE BUDS HAVE EVER HAD!!!

As a newly arrived Chicagoan to the Tampa/St. Pete area, I was bemoaning the lack of quality pizza, when lo and behold, a quick city search found me Paul's Chicago Pizza. SAVED !! This pizza is authentic Chicago thin crust (I have not had the deep dish yet). The sauce has just a slight sweetness to it, and the sausage.....mama mia !!
If there is anything bad to say (since the Chicago thin crust style has such a high standard)...it appears to me that they may have 'blanded' the spices a bit to make it more palatable to gentle Floridan palates...I prefer a bit more oregano, and a little bit of cumin....but that is getting real picky..
Order extra cheese....and Dads....like myself.....order a Chicago style hot dog to go (they have Vienna Beef !! dogs) so you keep your hands off the pizza on the way home....
AND OH !! for those who don't know...one good test to determine if a pizza is a good Chicago style thin crust....it tastes great the next morning cold !! (and I don't mean like some other people claim theirs do)
Bravo Paul.....more locations please !!

Great Chi-town pizza in Clearwater, very good and inexpensive lunch bufft and they serve Vienna Hot Dogs with sport peppers, bright green relish and poppy seed bun... the real thing. This place is awesome and he is cheating himself by having only one location in the southwest part of Tampa. Put in a location in Land O'Lake/Lutz!!!

If one ever tastes Pauls' pizza, they will definitely compare every other pizza to it that they ever eat. It is full of great flavor,perfect thin crust, and not too saucy, not too cheesey, just El' Perfecto from start to finish.A trip to Clearwater without Pauls' pizza is like glasses with no lenses.Try it and you will be writing a review of your own.

Being born and raised in Chicago I really missed a good thin crust Chicago pizza since I moved here in 1985. Yes, real Chicago pizza has a thin crust, despite what people think. But last year I found Paul's and go there weekly. All my friends agree. He flys in the best Italian sausage from Chicago and uses only the best mix of real cheeses. Also has other Italian specialties and the best Cheese Garlic Bread around.
