Reviews for Tortugas Pizza

This is where Birmingham comes for Chicago style pizza. It begins with a rich, buttery crust. Chicago pizza is HEAVY, but this crust holds up under the weight. That's important because what follows is cheese, toppings, more cheese, more toppings, finished with house made tomato sauce. It's not a quick process. It may take 45 minutes to an hour to prepare. The result is a dense, cheesey, gooey, salty, meaty explosion of flavor unrivaled in Alabama (and arguably better than Chicago' full review

We were craving good local pizza and this place hit the spot. It's a small mom & pop type place (not a chain) with delicious Chicago style pizza, regular hand tossed pizza, delicious salads, and the beer comes with a nice cold frosty mug. Our service was great. Everything we look for in a local pizza place. I highly recommend Tortugas and will eat there anytime I am in Hoover!

This is my go to pizza place in the Birmingham area. Casual, family owned vibe (Cubs fans will go nuts at the decorations), and the Chicago style deep dish pizzas are the absolute best. Pro tip: call ahead to get them started on your deep dish pizza since they take about 45 minutes to make. I also want to give a shout-out to their salads. The homemade Italian dressing is excellent, and the ingredients are always super fresh. I get the antipasto salad every time and am never disappointed.
