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.

Pro: Friendly staff. Tasty thin crust. Fun and Eclectic decor. Great family restaurant. WiFi available. It's a "build your own" pie factory from ingredients they list on the menu and a number of exotic local "favorites". I just think my friends chose the wrong group or ingredients to make the pie memorable. I'd give it another try. Con: Half of our party was full and left to go next store to buy clothes while we were left to finish the pie and settle the bill. Kinda felt the service staff was hovering to motivate us to leave.

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.

If 0 stars was an option, then that's what I would do! My family came to this disgusting place on Sunday for lunch. We came in and (originally) told the lady we wanted our food to go, so we paid and waited for our food. Around the time that the food arrived my father was starting not to feel well and really needed to eat. The food arrived and we decided to eat at our booth inside the restaurant. 5 minutes later, before we could get two bites, the rude server named Siobhan C. came to us and said that since we got our meal to go we can't sit at the table. We explained to her that my father wasn't feeling well and needed to eat, but she said that the tables in the 85% empty restaurant were only for a full-service dine in only. My father could have passed out in the restaurant and we would have sued the place! The ignorant waitress literally told us to get out of the restaurant! I mean who the hell does that? I would understand if the restaurant was completely full and there was a line out the door, but there was less than four tables both inside and outdoors occupied! We left and told her that we would never be back. All of this B.S. wasn't worth it for 3 slices of pizza for $13. Though the slices were large, they were way too greasy and wasn't any special pizza that I would remember. The server was only worried about the 2 - 4 dollar tip that she would receive (not from us)! On a side note, the hallway through the doors that the entrances to the bathrooms were in smelled horrible! I couldn't even wait for a bathroom to be available without gagging. I mean what the heck?! I will never come back here again and I hope that the server is fired. Hopefully, the owners will have the decency to read this and apologize for this horrendous experience. I will never recommend this to anyone! I will also pursue to get my money back. NEVER COME HERE!

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.

I love that they have thin crust pizza and also a choice of gluten free. All the ingredients seemed super fresh. I would recommend to people.

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.
