Pizza Plus serves up specialty pizzas, light entrees, pastas, platters, and more from its hearty menu. Open up with an appetizer of Jason’s loaded fries, smothered in bacon and cheddar cheese with a side of ranch ($3.99). Then try a specialty large such as the Falcon, with pepperoni, sausage, bacon, onions, tomatoes, green peppers, mushrooms, and black olives, or the Hawaiian Luau, with smoked ham, bacon, pineapple, onions, and green peppers ($10.99 each). For diners seeking stomach enlightenment, Pizza Plus offers lighter-side selections such as the grilled-chicken platter with steamed veggies ($6.99), as well as a full burger bar with classic sandwiches and specialty patties such as the Mexi-Cali burger, a quarter-pound patty with pepper jack and jalapeños ($4.29).
The chefs at Sauce create a menu of Italian dishes with an American twist, from cheesy garlic bread to chili spaghetti. Their pizza specialties, made with a generation-tested family recipe, range from classic pepperoni to chicken alfredo and hot barbecue chicken. The eatery’s minimalist decor allows guests to focus on the important things, like gooey melted cheese. A ladle and a spatula bisect a wall of framed art, including empty frames that showcase momentous occasions yet to happen, such as the world president dubbing California the world's most beautiful island.
Unlike unmellow mushrooms that make you take hour-long showers and nag you for tracking mud in the house, the Mellow Mushroom makes pizzas. The joint specializes in surrounding your dining experience with a dazzling atmosphere, artwork oozing with pizzazz, crisp bottles of happy beers, and the kinds of pizzas that got all the best solos at the fifth-grade choir demonstration. Sip on a cold draft of beer while ogling the Mushroom’s spread of Kosmic Karma pies that merge sun-dried tomatoes, spinach, feta, fresh tomatoes, and pesto ($10.99 for a 10’’); gourmet white pizzas with the harmonious offerings of olive oil and garlic, sunny-dried tomatoes, provolone, mozzarella, feta, and onions ($11.99 for a 10"); and the Magical Mystery Tour, brining pesto, portobello and button mushrooms, spinach, feta, and jalapenos back together for a reunion jam in your mouth ($10.99 for a 10").
