The first Cool River Pizza opened 14 years ago with a mission to serve handcrafted pies made from fresh ingredients and California cheese in a family-friendly environment. All of the dough is made fresh daily and each pizza sports Cool River's homemade sauce accented with more than seven herbs, spices, and umlauts. Over the years, Cool River Pizza has grown from a solo outfit to a family of restaurants in California and Indiana. Inside each location, televisions illuminate dining rooms packed with long wooden tables and board games for families to play while waiting for their orders.

Since its first pizzeria opened in 1978 in Palo Alto, Mountain Mike’s Pizza has stretched to encompass more than 150 restaurants throughout the West Coast. From the meat-laden Pike’s Peak to the vegetarian-friendly Mt. Veggiemore, 12 specialty pizzas—most of them named after mountains—arrive in portions from small to extra large, which can feed up to eight patrons or spark nostalgia in homesick, city-dwelling mountain goats. Diners can also choose their own conglomeration of ingredients, ranging from Louisiana-style hot links to sun-dried tomatoes, and supplement pies with an all-you-can-eat salad bar or a quintet of appetizer options including wings and jalapeño poppers.
Conveyor belt pizza has long been the industry standard for most pizza outlets. But at Fast Freddies Pizzeria, it's the brick oven that makes all the difference. Birthed in fire rather than atop electric coils, hot pies come out crackling with crispy crusts destined for the guillotine of excited incisors. Toppings such as pepperoni, meatball, bacon, sausage, chorizo, and chicken pounce upon mounds of cheese, marinara, or alfredo sauce, along with refreshing veggies such as spinach, cilantro, basil, and jalapenos. Pasta, salad, sandwiches, and wings also fill the menu, along with a bevy of beverages such as wine, soft drinks, and draft beer typically doled out in pitchers.
The chefs inside Godfather’s Pizza’s kitchen crown original, thin, and gluten-free crusts with fistfuls of more than 15 meat and veggie toppings. Predesigned pies simulate the flavors of other foods in configurations such as the bacon-cheeseburger pizza with beef, bacon, cheddar, pickles, and onions. Sandwiches and hot wings round out feasts. In the dining room at some locations, ice clatters cheerily from Coca-Cola Freestyle machines, which dispense more than 100 flavors of soda as well as resumé advice for robot bartenders. Delivery drivers bustle past, filling orders or toting catered fare, and Godfather’s Pizza brims with happy chatter during field trips that introduce students to the pizza-creation process.
