A lot of hype was generated when the Gulfstream Racetrack remodeled itself and added outdoor shopping and gambling inside. Although it took us a while, my family and I finally found time to go and see if it was a fun place to put in our rotation on boring weekends.

Whoever did the redesign did a great job on the outside village area http://www.thevillageatgulfstreampark.com/. There are many outdoor shops and restaurants including Brio and Yard House. Needless to say if you are hungry you can easily find a place everyone agrees upon. Since I noticed a place called America Pie Pizzeria, we chose to get pizza. I have noticed since I have eaten there that they changed their name to American Pie Brick Oven Pizza now, probably to hop on the brick oven craze.

American Pie Pizza was kind of groovy inside, it is almost as if they were trying to emulate Peace a Pizza or Mellow Mushroom with the psychedelic ambiance. We ordered a plain pie and began our wait. American Pie Pizza was empty during our visit there, and only one other family came and sat down during our lunch. In all fairness, the entire Village area was kind of desolate on this weekend day that we went, so I didn’t let it play into my initial reaction of thinking nobody wanted to eat here cause it is bad.

When the pie was placed on our table I could immediately see how much flour they used while preparing their pizza. Just look around the edges and the photo will show you definitive proof of how much they used. The sauce wasn’t that great, but the cheese was really tasty. The cheese was the best part of the pie and I wished they applied more around the edges to cover up some of that sauce. The crust tasted quite bland and I feel this was due to the cheap flour they were using. Without the flour the crust might have tasted decent. I was further impressed that American Pie Pizza cooked this pie almost perfectly.

Although they might have changed their name, this is certainly the type of pizzeria that needs to be with a lot of foot traffic, since I cannot see anyone going out of their way to just eat here and deal with parking etc. The casino isn’t anything special and it is kind of the been there done that type of environment.

American Pie Pizza in Hallandale gets 4 out of 8 slices.

    I will NEVER go to this place again. Pizza was over-burned, there was a
    roach in the bathroom and the manager is a JERK. People like Barney
    Winkle should not be in business. They do not know how to speak to
    employees and talk to people. Very disrespectful and rude guy…omg! I
    work for a local hotel company and Ocean Drive Magazine and believe me,
    this guy won’t get any more business from us. I rather go to Steve’s
    Pizza or Anthony’s…heck, before I go there I get better service at
    Pizza Hut! This guy lost it big time from our staff and customers
    because it is the last place we will recommend anybody to. Whenever you
    learn how to be less of an a$$ and treat people with respect, you will
    be a better business man. Jackoff. Period.

    Barney is horrible he came to our table asking to replace our dinner but with attitude. He is a jerk! He told my dad and mom to find somewhere else to get pizza. Gulf stream should find someone who respects their clients. By the way clean your bathroom fatty.

    We went on 1/19/14 before we took in the John Lennon pics down the street. Becky was our wonderful waitress and she took care of us Big Time. Very pleasant,happy person and very knowledgeable about the food available.
    We choose the large pizza slice and loaded it up with what we wanted. It was delicious for both of us. I am a vegan and my friend is a meat lover. We ordered one salad, the chef’s salad with his choice of dressing and it came in a huge bowl that we shared on long white plates. He also ordered the
    strombolli and took some of it home with him for the next morning.All in all it was a pleasant experience and I don’t understand the negative comments posted here. Everyone there was happy and eating with delight

When I asked where is my 1/2 Lb. manager came. Rude unshaved guy ready to fight.” Right now we serve this type of burger” A what about your manu? “We will change soon”
