Thank goodness for Little Caesar’s Pizza since it made the $5 hot-n-ready pizza the deal to beat. These pizzas have served many a birthday or slumber party and been the back-up dinner of choice for moms at their wits’ end.
There’s another cheap pizza alternative for moms near downtown and in Alabaster now: Hungry Howie’s Pizza and Subs. Their take-out “Fast & Fresh” $5.99 pepperoni or cheese pizza is comparable to Little Caesar’s in size and you get to choose one of their flavored crusts, the differentiator between Hungry Howie’s and most other pizza chains. Crust flavors are Original, Butter, Buttercheese, Garllic Herb, Sesame, Ranch, Onion and Cajun.
Although Hungry Howie’s delivers and has an extensive selection for a pizza place, with items like wings, chicken tenders, oven baked subs, baked pastas, and salads. They are reasonably priced but frequentlyhave excellent coupon offers, and of course they deliver.
The Southside location is take out only but has a drive-through window. Alabaster (in the Publix shopping plaza) has a dine-in area and will soon be moving to the former Bruster’s in the same plaza, where it will have a larger dining area and a take out window).
BirminghamMomSuggestion: Grab-and-go pizza makes for an easy picnic on a pleasant day. Order your take out pizza at Hungry Howie’s on Southside (1501 11th Ave), then run into the convenience store next door for fountain drinks. Return for your now-ready pizza and head to Vulcan park for a picnic with one of the best views of the city anywhere.
