Since discovering that the sun is a glowing space-pizza, astronauts have fought for more frequent trips to its delicious surface. Today's Groupon celebrates the sauciest solar body with $20 worth of circular eating at Pizza California for $10. Signature pies and ready-to-go slices cradle robust ingredients whose flavorful pizzazz threatens to throw a third z in pizza and a fifth z in pizzazz.
Opening a restaurant dedicated to one of America's favorite foods and fondest addictions is a risky venture, but Pizza California's cool, collected pizza confidence made it a second-place pizza winner from Citysearch in the Silicon Valley within four years of opening its doors. Draft beers and bottled wines serve as the hydration company for a slew of pizzas served hot within PC's cozy, yellow-walled pizza establishment. Choose from a collection of 15 modern pizza creations like the Earthquake, with pepperoni, smoked ham, salami, red onions, green bell peppers, mushrooms, black olives, bacon, and Italian sausage ($12.29 for a small, $17.99 for a medium, $24.49 for a large); the thin-crusted North Beach, painted with olive oil, extra mozzarella, garlic, and hand-sliced tomatoes ($10.89, $15.79, $20.99); and the Creamy Pesto Chicken, topped with grilled chicken, roasted garlic, red onions, bell peppers, and a dusting of parmesan atop a sea of light and creamy pesto sauce ($12.29, $17.99, $24.49).
Curious pizza crafters have the freedom to build their own pizza from a wide range of meats, veggies, and special ingredients. Fast eaters can fetch a fresh slice ($3.50 for a regular slice, $4 for a gourmet slice). Express a commitment to exploring the vastly unearthed potentiality of bread, sauce, and toppings that, when baked together, add up to a sum greater than its individual parts and worthy of stapling to the refrigerator door.
- Very original California pizza restaurant - spacious seating, new clean facility, ample parking, excellent food and a California decor. A good choice when you are up for pizza. – rroyse, Citysearch
- Innovative combinations of ingredients atop a crust that's the perfect cross between crisp and soft. The pesto sauce is a must-try (e.g., used on the "Hollywood" pizza with black olives, artichokes, sun-dried tomatoes, and parmesan), as is the creamy garlic sauce. – BridgetX, Citysearch
- My companion and I ordered a medium "Monterey chicken" (red & green bell peppers, red onions, grilled chicken, and a creamy garlic sauce). The thick crust had a nice level of crispness and the overall effect was mouth-watering. I also made myself a small salad from their clean and abundant salad bar, which seems to be very well maintained. – Claire, Urbanspoon
