Located near the beach and boasting a huge collection of vintage surfboards, Pleasure Pizza serves up wings and specialty pizzas in a laid-back atmosphere. Build disproportionately muscular forearms by lifting the Popeye pizza, which combines spinach, feta, mozzarella, and tomatoes without red sauce ($20.95 for a 14"). Or use your free T-shirt as a bib and dive headfirst into the Indicator—a combination of chipotle pesto and pineapple ($16.75 for 14")—with a Point salad topped with house ranch dressing on the side ($3.75). Wings come in smokey BBQ, habanero jack, mango sambal, or classic Frank's hot sauce and are served with salsa or ranch dressing ($7 for one order), which acts as coolant for overworked tongue engines.
Pleasure Pizza gets an average of 3.5 stars from more than 50 Yelpers.
The staff at the original location of Pleasure Pizza has spent more than 35 years perfecting their recipes, and they've passed the proverbial pizza torch to a new downtown Santa Cruz location. The restaurant also serves beer and wine along with sandwiches and salads, which chefs craft with an eye to locally sourced ingredients. And, of course, they have pizza—18 different kinds, each hand-crafted with homemade crust, daily.
