OMA Pizza On Beautiful Bradenton Beach
We found this great hole in the wall pizza place called OMA Pizza in Bradenton Beach, FL.
When it comes to finding a place to eat while on vacation, don’t you rely heavily on personal references? If you find a local that’s lived in the area and has a grasp of the ‘lay of the land’, don’t you feel inclined to give them the benefit of the doubt?
With this practice in mind we were directed to OMA’s Pizza and Italian Restaurant just outside beautiful Sarasota, Florida.
OMA Pizza is located in the scenic town of Bradenton Beach, Florida.
Since Silke hasn’t had an authentic Italian pizza in years and I have never had one, we decided to give it a try.
While driving through the area we spotted and recognized the sign. It’s a cozy little place with booths and hand drawn murals on the walls that add to the authentic Italian feel. We ordered our usual toppings of ham, onion, mushroom and peppers, asked for our pizza to go and hung out for a little while.
On the wall to the left of the counter are pictures of the “World’s largest pizza ever made“.
I commented on what it must have taken to bake something this size and the Italian sounding gentleman behind the counter was quick to note that they had to construct the actual oven before the pizza was even made. No small feat considering this thing looked to be the size of a football field.
Having made the world’s largest pizza is not only their claim to fame in the Guiness Book Of World Records but does offer a really neat angle for marketing their authentic Italian foods.
The menu at OMA’s includes: Pizzas, Appetizers, Dinners, Soups, Salads, Hero Sandwiches, and Desserts.
Silke and I enjoyed our Oma pizza, the crust was perfectly baked and crispy, with lots of topping.
We highly recommend this restaurant if you’re in the Sarasota FL area. By the way, did you know that “Oma” in German means Grandma?
