My two favorite pizza spots on the Mississippi Gulf Coast are both found at shrimp sign 38. Although both bring different flavors and a unique atmosphere, you can’t go wrong with either option!



Bootleggers is my family’s go-to pizza spot. If you like thin crust, crispy pizza, this will be your go-to spot too! Although they proudly serve Chicago-style pizza, you can find multiple options with a Mississippi Gulf Coast twist, including the seafood pizza served with shrimp, crabmeat and special seafood sauce. One of the best things about this local spot is that they deliver!

I checked out this restaurant after I saw that local food writer Julian Brunt described this pizza as “hands down the best pizza I have ever had.” So, of course I had to try it, and I have to admit this pizza is pretty amazing! This small, family-owned restaurant prepares much more than pizza. Here you can find pasta dishes, gyros, salads and more. I suggest the fried zucchini as an appetizer. You won’t regret it!
