Juneau’s best-known pizza joint since 1973 is Bullwinkle’s (907/586-2400, www.bullwinklespizza.com, daily 11 a.m.–11 p.m.), directly across from the State Office Building on Willoughby Avenue and also in Mendenhall Valley next to Super Bear Market. Daily lunch pizza specials start at $5, and the popcorn is always free.
You’ll get better and more authentic pizza—including pizza by the slice—from Pizzeria Roma (Merchant’s Wharf, 907/463-5020, www.hangaronthewharf.com).
Over in Douglas, The Island Pub (1102 2nd St., 907/364-1595, www.theislandpub.com, daily 11:30 a.m.–10 p.m.) serves pizzas ($13–20), sandwiches, and wraps in a great smoke-free setting with big windows facing Juneau.
