Pasquale's West Coast Pizzeria delights its guests with a smorgasbord of pizzas. Chefs prepare each one with an original, skinny, or pan crust, and offer the option of creating your own pie or choosing a specialty. The Maui Gourmet pizza, for example, comes loaded with bacon, pineapple, ham, roma tomatoes, onions, and sweet chili sauce.

Hearty baked pastas and cold and toasted deli subs are available as well. To cheese-stuffed ravioli or ham and turkey heroes, diners might add crispy, golden-brown garlic bread and some draft beer. Moreover, philanthropic patrons can gather at Pasquale's for fundraisers, with the pizzeria donating 25% of the proceeds and reserving the last slice of pie for any nonprofit.

The dough wizards at Papa John's create circular masterpieces with original and thin crusts made from high-protein flour to support warm bouquets of toppings. Hand-cut produce crowns all of Papa John's pizzas, mingling with the sun-soaked sweetness of sauce made from fresh, California-grown tomatoes. By adhering to its brand promise of "better ingredients, better pizza," Papa John's grew from a back-tavern pizzeria into more than 3,500 restaurants within three decades' time, or the amount of time it takes to grow a single pizzeria from a small seed.

Vienna Pizzaria, previously known as The Pizza Guys, extinguishes hunger with customizable pies that headline a full menu of fresh, casual Italian and American fare. Dough molders draw from an arsenal of 38 classic and exotic toppings⎯including everything from clams and boiled eggs to corn and hearts of palm⎯to festoon 16-inch large pizzas. Guests may also take the old-fashioned route with tried-and-true embellishments such as pepperoni and mushrooms, creating a meal as traditional as an edible Norman Rockwell painting. Additionally, house salads squash vegetable cravings with a flurry of ingredients, including kidney beans, cucumbers, and black olives.

For more than 51 years, Round Table Pizza's chefs have been rolling out fresh, made-from-scratch dough, sprinkling it with a signature three-cheese blend, and baking the delectable disks to a golden brown. Sink famished fangs into the King Arthur Supreme to get a taste of pepperoni, italian sausage, dry salami, linguica, and various veggies ($16.99–$18.49 for a medium; prices vary by location), and then wait patiently as your dining companions take turns trying to free you from its cheesy embrace. Or curb herbaceous cravings with Guinevere's Garden Delight, a sliceable field of green peppers and roma tomatoes punctuated by fragrant blossoms of mushroom, green pepper, yellow onions, and black olives ($16.99–$18.49 for a medium).

The resident chefs at Mama Maria's Ristorante have rolled out their own pizza dough for 20 years, crafting pies alongside platters of authentic Italian cuisine. Chefs use softly risen, house-made pizza dough to hold aloft ingredients including tandoori chicken, barbecue chicken, bacon, artichokes, and sun-dried tomatoes. The skilled kitchen staff sautés calamari with onion, green peppers, tomatoes, and olives for calamari siciliana, and sends spaghetti pomodoro out the kitchen doors to anoint fork tines with its complex marinara. Pizza-delivery service ferries pies sheathed in heat-insulated delivery bags to keep pizzas fresh. Mama Maria's also takes its culinary show on the road with catering services designed to feed hungry party guests or whole pasta-aficionado clubs.

Diners at Barolo are surrounded by Italian influences in the wooden floors and tables as well as the menu, which features seasonal ingredients and local specialties. Start with an antipasti of fritto misto, made with Monterey calamari, local artichokes, lemon, and caper aioli ($10). Then move on to secondi such as the cornish game hen marinated in lemon and rosemary and served with polenta cake ($17), or the linguini and clams, with Italian sausage, garlic, basil, parsley, and white wine ($10 small plate, $18 large). Have a side such as the truffle fries ($5) and a signature Pax Basilicus cocktail (rum, lime, agave nectar, basil, $10); then, finish with a classic tiramisu for dessert ($7).
