When you are in the mood for pizza but don’t want to break the bank, just stop into Hungry Howie’s in Panama City Beach, Florida, to get your fill. If you don’t have time to dine-in, they offer takeout and delivery, too. With so many delicious treats to choose from, you will never walk away hungry after visiting or calling into this Panama City Beach restaurant. They have everything from stuffed crust pizza to their one-of-a-kind rolls filled with all your favorite toppings.

Their pizzas start with your choice of flavored crusts, including ranch, Cajun, and asiago cheese. To create these crusts, they make their dough fresh daily, then spread on the flavoring to order. After that, they load it up with all your favorite toppings, which you can pile on one by one if you wish. You can also order up their premade creations that range from traditional recipes to the truly inventive.

If you are in the mood for a little something different, then you can always go for the oven-baked subs, Howie rolls, or a big plate of saucy wings. As long as they have the ingredients inhouse, you can customize your order to your liking, creating all-new combinations with every visit. Don’t forget to add a fresh salad to the side to get your veggies in and lighten up the rich pizza flavors just a bit.

Best selling items on their menu (besides pizza) include:

Jalapeno Stuffed Howie Bread
New to the menu is their Jalapeno Stuffed Howie Bread. They make this incredible appetizer using their fresh pizza dough, then stuff it full of jalapeno peppers, cheddar cheese, and mozzarella. Over the top, they slather on the butter, parmesan, and garlic herb blend before blasting it golden brown in the oven.

Steak and Cheese Howie Roll
When you order the Steak and Cheese Howie Roll, you can go beyond calzones to a whole new world of flavors. This roll comes with a generous amount of marinated steak and cheddar cheese stuffed inside. Then, they bake it up until golden brown and serve it with chunky marinara sauce on the side. You can also ask for ranch for dipping if you wish.

Meatball Sub
The Meatball Sub will take you around the world and back again with its amazing blend of rich and fresh flavors. Available in regular and large sizes, it starts with a circle of dough that receives meatballs galore. Then, they add mozzarella cheese and pizza sauce before folding it over and cooking it in the oven until fully browned. Ask to add a little cheddar cheese to the mix to take this sub to the next level in an instant.

To satisfy your sweet tooth, make sure to add the Howie Cookie to your order. This delectable treat is basically the biggest chocolate chip cookie you’ve ever seen. It is cut into eight slices for sharing, though you definitely don’t have to if you prefer to keep it all to yourself. You can also go with the Cinnamon Howie Bread if you prefer rich, buttery dough covered in cinnamon sugar and sweet icing glaze.

Insider Tips:
– If you come in often, make sure to join the Howie Rewards program to start saving. Through this program, you will earn points on your purchases, which can be redeemed for free pizza once you earn enough.
– Their pizzas are a bit heavy on the dough, so order extra cheese for a better balance.
– Although they do not make it inhouse, they have gluten-free crust for those who need to skip the wheat. They do not have a separate kitchen for gluten-free cooking, so there is a risk of trace contamination.
