Antonio Pizza – Southeastern Riverside – Has a generous helping of toppings, with a slightly sweet tomato sauce, and pretty good prices.
Woodfire Cafe – Downtown Riverside – The crust here has the distinct Neapolitan-style char, crispiness, and flavor that is really only attainable from a–you guessed it–wood fire oven.
San Biagio’s New York Style Pizza – Upland – This family-owned pizzeria has been making authentic thin crust NY-style pies (and vetted by countless New Yorkers) for decades.
Pizza N’ Such – Claremont – Another family-owned local favorite. Not the cheapest, but the pies are very fresh and the toppings are generous and of good quality.
Pizza Pirates – Glen Avon, Pomona, Ontario – Has many different specialty pizzas, but their Italian Garlic pizza is to die for!
LouEddie’s – Lake Arrowhead – The most popular choice on the mountain, by far, for specialty fire-roasted pizzas.
Gridiron Pizza – Victorville – Touted by many as the best pizza in the High Desert, their 1-topping large pizzas for just under $6 are an especially good value.
Big Guys Pizza – Moreno Valley – Come for the super cheesy and hearty pizzas, calzones, pastas, wings, and a lot more. Stay for the pool tables and darts, all in a lively sports bar setting!
Romano’s – Redlands and Riverside – Known for their massive stuffed Chicago-style deep dish pizzas.
Rosati’s – Menifee, Temecula, La Quinta – This Midwestern franchise serves pies with three different types of crusts: thin, their own double crust creation, and of course Chicago-style deep dish.
The Goat and Vine – Temecula – If you’re in the mood for a gourmet pizza with exotic ingredients, this place delivers with flavors like jalapeño lime carnitas and steak gorgonzola.
Vegan Korner – Colton – Vegans rejoice! Vegan Korner specializes in all-vegan pizzas including loaded meat, buffalo chicken, chorizo, and chicken alfredo. They even have cheesy garlic bread and even calzones.
