On a recent trip to Christina Lake we decided to stop and grab a bite at the one and only pizza shop in the scenic little resort area. Glad we did! Not only was the pizza amazing, but they went above and beyond to accommodate my husband's and my totally different taste in pizza, as we weren't hungry enough for... More

After a good day of swimming we decided to hit up the Portly Penguin pizza at Christina Lake. We ordered before we left the lake and it was almost done when we arrived. They did make an error but caught it before we left. To my surprise the gentleman that was at the counter offered us cold drinks as an... More

After an exhausting day of travel phoned for delivery which they offered locally, but then the lady on the phone stated they won't deliver for under a $30 order.... Sorry that's a little excessive folks... Especially ordering for two older adults.... When you only want one pizza. Sounded like it was good pizza though from the locals. Too bad that... More

Very busy take out pizza place however they are very accomodating and they do their best to get your food out in a timely manner. Nice crust, fresh toppings certainly worth the wait. We stay in Christina Lake every summer and we look forward to having their pizza.

We're from Calgary and can't wait to come back every summer for this praiseworthy pizza in Christina Lake. We love 'non chain' locally fresh made pizza and this is our favourite. The owners are so personable and you feel the love and pride that is put into their pizza. The sauce is peppery and like no other we've ever had.... More

One of the only restaurants in Christina Lake to have dinner of some sort. Other than burgers and fries, it is the only option. Needless to say we were not expecting much. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality and quantity of ingredients on these 10" pies. They may need a bigger kitchen to keep up with the demand!
