A delicious pizza fresh from the oven with warm baked dough, salty tomato sauce and gooey cheese is a delight for the senses.

There are many foods that one would consider to be especially satisfying,  but a great pizza is hard to beat.

Cher’s Pizza Weekends, located at Lewis Street, Vieux Fort, certainly has caught the attention of the masses with their unbelievably cheesy, mouthwatering home-made pizzas.

You need to try the shrimp pizza

Garnished with a variety of toppings, these delicious circular pies of goodness will take you on a heavenly journey. Every cheesy bite melts in your mouth and is loaded with flavor.

The toppings range from traditional pepperoni to the offbeat but scrumptious shrimp. The dough is crunchy and soft with an overlapping layer of cheese all the way to the crust. Yummy, the ‘Holy Trinity’ of baking.

In addition to ooey-gooey pizza, Cher’s Pizza Weekends has introduced crispy wings smothered in three different sauces: honey barbecue, sweet and sour and buffalo, paired with a side of baked potatoes, coleslaw, or garlic bread for your satisfaction.

The founder, 29-year old Chervon Louis of Vieux-Fort saw the opportunity to fill the gap of persons not being able to purchase their favorite foods during quarantine.

Her first instinct was to offer her pizzas only on weekends (hence the name Cher’s Pizza Weekends) to a limited amount of people but the popularity of that idea has encouraged her to become a full-fledged entrepreneur.

Despite COVID-19, she says her home-based business has been successful from the onset and has blossomed into an unbelievable experience.

She is thankful for the overwhelming support from her customers and advises anyone with an idea to not be afraid to put it to the test. “Start small. If you don’t try, you won’t know if it will work. You never know what will happen.”

Cher’s Pizza Weekends is open from Thursday to Sunday every week.
