Flying Saucer Pizza Company landed in downtown Salem on the historic date of August 3, 2012  - directly next to its sister restaurant Gulu-Gulu Cafe.

The mission: to abduct traditional pizza and give it a healthy gourmet spin. Our eclectic pizza menu showcases a variety of fresh and local ingredients. With our designer pizzas inspired by available seasonal ingredients, our menu evolves and changes throughout the year.

In addition to our great selection of New York style pizza, we serves great salads, beers, wines, and dessert – even dessert pizzas! Charlie the Space Pug, the Flying Saucer’s fearless leader, offers peace (and warm bellies) to all who enter—carnivores, vegetarians, vegans, and gluten-intolerant earthlings alike.

I love the Flying Saucer! I'm a regular that shows up for trivia night on Mondays and I always have a good time. I love environment, the waiters are always friendly, and they have great beer choices (my favorite part). The pizza is great and it's always worth giving their special of the day and beer dough a try. I've only ever had one negative experience and it was due to an oven malfunction. Management was on top of it though making sure that those of us who stayed were taken care of.

Great pizza, great beer, terrible service. I've been here a few times, it is always slow. Not just slow to cook a pizza, I realize those things take time. Its often 10 minutes to get a cup of water. Even a beer takes 10 minutes to get after ordering. They also tend to be somewhat unresponsive to questions. That said, the food is phenomenal. I higly recommend the Picard. the decor is top notch.

Was unclear how seating worked, we finally got a seat and were given menus. 20 mins later, we still had no service, so we left. They really looked like they needed more servers. Would have given it one star, except they have a lucutus of Borg lifesize statue and a chalk drawing of Finn the human. Meh, was fun to see, but really wanted to try the pizza.

I was super disappointed with my most recent experience. This is the second time I have been here and the first time was decent so I decided to splurge ($26 for a pizza is not uncommon here) and come back again when some family and i were looking to get some good pizza. We got a margarita pizza, which they call the serenity and add spinach, a pepper and onion with pepperoni on half, and a cheese pizza. The crust was decent. We went with the wheat dough because when I had it the first time i came here it was crispy and chewy like it should be, unlike most wheat dough that is just thick and spongy. This time the dough was exactly what I didn't want it to be. It was a super thick crust which tells me the dough was not properly spread out. it was close to half an inch thick. If i wanted greek pizza I could have paid ten bucks per pizza. This dough could not have been freshly made if it was the same recipe they used the last time I was there. On the serenity/margarita pizza we opted for red sauce instead of the garlic olive oil sauce. Let me just say now that all the pizzas had so much sauce that they were almost not edible. The sauce was thick and pasty like they used straight tomato paste and added way too much italian spice blend. On this pizza it was especially unappetizing because they basically layer the entire pizza with basil, spinach, and 11 small slices of tomato. Then they say on the menu that they use fresh mozzarella on this pizza which they did not. They sprinkled regular shredded mozzarella on a margarita pizza that cost me $23 because they charged me for the red sauce as a topping. My girlfriend is a vegetarian and rarely eats cheese and would normally love something like this as she gets it almost every time we get pizza and even she said it was not good. Hard to mess up a margarita pizza but they did it at the flying saucer on this night. The pepper onion and pepperoni pizza was much more of the same. HUGE DISSAPOINTMENT!!! The pizza cost me $21 because it was $2 per topping. I didn't count but every slice did not have pepper and onion on it and the half with pepperoni probably had 6 to 8 pepperoni's on it. If you are gonna charge me this much for a pizza give me some toppings please. they probably used less than a quarter of a pepper and an onion on this pizza and were super skimpy on the cheese. Now let me say the good pizza shouldn't have tons of cheese but when you have a half inch of spongy gross crust and an ocean of thick, pasty sauce as I mentioned earlier, it makes it hard to eat a pizza with light cheese and no toppings. this is my favorite combination on pizza and it is simple. Total disaster. Now cheese is impossible to mess up. Not at Flying Saucer. All things I already said were the issues. Pools of sauce by the crust, thick crust made with old dough, and not enough cheese. Cover the pizza with cheese if your charging $15 for it. There is no reason for charging that much for a cheese pizza. If you are not buying imported cheese, growing the tomatoes out back, and grinding the wheat daily to make the flour for the dough your just ripping people off. None of this is happening here. Add that to the fact that they told us 35 mins for pickup and the pizza was definitely sitting for a while and it was just a bad experience. I do not care about paying for quality because I believe that fresh, high quality ingredients make a huge difference when making any dish but when I pay $60 for three pizzas I expect some seriously good pizza. This was not good pizza. If I had not ordered it so late I would have returned it. I still have 1.5 pizzas worth of slices sitting in the fridge because no one liked the pizza. Good pizza would have been gone in this house. This place should practice what they preach on the website. This was not New York style pizza, it was not fresh high quality ingredients, and it was not gourmet. It actually will probably end up being garbage because I don't think anyone is eating those extra slices.
