Waikiki is on Oahu.  Are you asking about Oahu or Kauai?

Okay. 

Well, it depends on what you are looking for.  If you like old school Midwestern/cracker type crust, there is a Shakey's on Oahu in Waipau at the Waipahu Shopping Center strip mall but you would have to drive from Waikiki: 94-60 Farrington Hwy, Waipahu.

In the same style there is also Round Table Pizza with at least 2 Waikiki locations: one at the Hilton Hawaiian Village and the other location is at the other end of Waikiki, at the Ohana East Hotel: 150 Kaiulani Ave, Honolulu, HI.  It is a nice sports bar, but I am seeing on the internet this location may have moved or be closed.

Other styles of pizza that are more mom & pop that are worth checking out are:
Happy Valley Pizza and Pasta over by Diamond Head.
Amina Pizza on Kalakaua Ave
Rosarina Pizza on King Street

Thanks Ernie. How about any neapolitan style or NY style? I saw 2 in the google reviews but dont have any review from a forum member here to make it authentic.

I am aware there are a few places on Oahu that have these types of styles, but sadly I do not have any first-hand knowledge to give you for a good Neapolitan pizza on the islands (not to say there might be one, I've just never had any Neapolitan pizza in Hawaii).  For New York style, I would say Happy Valley has the closest NY style pizza that I have seen (there may be others, but I've not tried them, either). Amina's is more of what I would call a Midwestern thick crust pizza.  Rosarina: I would classify this pizza as something between Happy Valley and Amina's.  Sorry I can't be more personal help on this one.
