One of the more elusive food trucks on the island of Oahu is Impossibles Pizza. This food truck was named after one of the shore breaks on the North Shore of Oahu near the world famous Banzai Pipeline. Now, the name might indicate how hard it is to get a slice. I actually ate at this food truck several years ago and think it was open at different hours and more often than it is now.
Currently, Impossibles Pizza is only open three days a week, from 3:00pm to 8:00pm (Thursday, Friday and Saturday). There is a good reason for this. Impossibles Pizza is run by only one person. This would be hard enough for a shave ice truck but for a Pizza truck, this is quite a task.
The owner’s name is Micah. He is a really nice guy who makes very good pizzas. When I came by, I had missed his single slices by an hour. He sells single slices of pepperoni and cheese from only 3pm to 6pm. After 6pm he does only full pizza orders so I had to come again another time, much sooner than I did this time. There is no way I can or should eat a whole pizza by myself, even if it took me a couple of days.
So when I came back the following week, I made sure I got there before 6:00pm. Micah asked what I wanted to try and I just said whatever you got. A few minutes later he handed me a slice of pineapple bacon pizza. The first thought that popped in my head was, “this is one tricky pizza and one I would not normally order as this type of pizza can have too much pineapple juice and ruin the taste”. After the first bite, Micah proved that he really knows his pizza and even this tricky combination was excellent. If he is able to make a perfectly balanced pineapple bacon pizza then I would trust him to make any other type of pizza for me. You can see from the photos, he doesn’t just throw a few bits of bacon on the pie; he literally slaps entire strips of bacon uncut all over the pizza.
The pizza at Impossibles Pizza are not large, they are huge. There are photos on Yelp where it is literally spilling out of the box. When you order a slice, it is literally one quarter of the pizza and the slice only costs $6. Impossibles Pizza has 17 different types of pizza on the menu and you can even custom order your own personal creation.

The one thing often overlooked when evaluating a pizza is the crust. There are all sorts of toppings you can get with any pizza out there but if the crust is not good or improperly cooked then the whole pizza is a failure. Impossibles Pizza nails their crust. It was perfectly cooked, with not a single inch being under or over cooked and it had an excellent flavor. The thickness of the crust, to me, was spot on. If you get a chance, you should also try Micah’s homemade ranch dressing with or without the pizza.
Overall, I would say if you are on the North Shore on any of the days Micah is open (after 3pm) and want a great pizza, Impossibles Pizza is really worth a shot. Just keep in mind this is literally a one man operation with no one to help him so please be patient or order in advance. From my own personal experience, it was well worth the visit. The cheese pizza (full order) starts at $20 and goes up from there depending on what you want on it. For what you are getting, the price is very reasonable.
