Looking for the best pizza in Sacramento, California? You’ve come to the right place.
No frills here, just remarkably delicious pizza made with a killer sourdough crust. the “plain” cheese pizza is anything but, thanks to a delicious three cheese blend and organic tomato sauce. But, if you’re feeling a bit more adventurous/tropical, there’s also the Hawaiian pie, made with spam, shaved jalapeno, and fresh pineapple. This local shop truly has it all, including a mantra of “Smile. Have Fun. Eat Pizza.” that you should repurpose to become your daily affirmation.
Giovanni’s brings a slice of New York to Sacramento with inventive pies, including “Da Bronx Bomber Pizza” which comes loaded with pepperoni, salami, sausage, bacon, mushrooms, olives, and peppers. Pro tip: Giovanni’s also serves up a fine Sicilian – the Pesto version with Giovanni’s homemade pesto sauce, toasted pine nuts, and fresh tomatoes is a winner every time.
Sacramento is fortunate to have an outpost of Extreme Pizza on Exposition Blvd, where you can get a host of exceptional vegetarian pies.

How many restaurants can say that they boast exceptional wood-fired pies and a bocce ball court? We strongly recommend the lasagna-inspired Garfield Pizza, but also suggest leaving room for one of Federalist’s fantastic sandos such as the Roasted Tri Tip, with pickled peppers and arugula pesto that perfectly complements its beefy goodness.
