We order from Flying Saucer a lot because our family is half Gluten Free and half not and both of their pizzas are really good. We don't go there to eat often, but the atmosphere is fun and the service is good and they have outdoor seating in the warm months.

Had the Silurian pizza with teese cheddar and mac and teese on top. Best. Vegan. Pizza. I have ever had! The shop had a great atmosphere, great staff and we watched the Venture Bros the whole time during dinner!

The pizza was delicious! We sat outside and I think our waitress may have forgotten about us so we went inside and had to remind them... twice. However, when the pizza came, it was worth it! Would come back here but would sit inside or grab pizza to go!

I only stopped in quick for a slice of cheese pizza (which was very good) but my 4 stars are for the decor alone. I'm a big geek and this place was just too cool! I wish I lived in Salem just to hang out here! Star Wars, Trek, Doctor Who, etc everywhere!

The place was packed to the gills; we chose to sit outside, as inside seating would have meant a 45-minute wait and we were HUNGRY! Turned out to be a good decision, as it was fun people-watching the tourists in Lappin Park as we waited for our pizza. We had the Mars Attacks, which is a red sauce pizza with... More

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! Charlie the Space Pug, the Flying Saucer's fearless leader, offers peace (and warm bellies) to all who enter - omnivores, vegetarians, vegans, and gluten-intolerant earthlings alike.
