This review reflects our experience in November of 2014.
When you’re on a safari in Africa I’m sure you’re pretty much expecting to get a pizza, right? Luckily when on safari in Disney’s Animal Kingdom that is possible! Pizzafari is a quick service restaurant that specializes in, you guessed it, pizza and is located just outside of Africa in the Animal Kingdom. Since we both love pizza we decided to give Pizzafari a try while visiting Disney World in November (2014). Pizzafari offers indoor and covered outdoor seating, this is a great spot to take a mid day break out of the sun.
When we talked to a cast member while ordering we were told that all of the pizzas at Pizzafari are pre-made but we are able to get a vegan pizza. She told us that we could get our pizza on the bread used for the Italian Sandwich which is muffuletta bread. Pizzafari carries Daiya Vegan Cheese so we were happy we could have a gooey cheesy pizza! Each item on the menu comes with a side, unfortunately all of the salads at Pizzafari are also pre-made which means there is no vegan option if you want a salad. The side options for vegans include grapes, carrots or Lay’s potato chips.
Our veggie pizza came out really quickly, but that may have been because we arrived before the lunch rush. We were a little hesitant about having our pizza on bread but we were not disappointed. The bread had a crust all on the bottom that helped to keep the pizza firm when eating it. Since it was bread instead of dough it helped soaked up some of the sauce to keep it full of flavor.
The vegetables on the pizza (pepper, onion, tomato and mushroom) seemed to have been sautéed prior to cooking the pizza which added a lot of flavor. The veggies had a strong garlic taste as well as obviously being seasoned. There was plenty of sauce on this pizza and the sauce was packed with tomato flavor. We really like Daiya cheese so we were happy to have this as an option on our pizza. This was the best quick service pizza I have had in Disney World. Next time we’re on safari, we’ll definitely be getting pizza again.
Would we go back?
Yes, this may be the best pizza I’ve had in Disney World.
