Whenever we’re feeling saucy, we like to dig into a slice of local pizza. Sac’s pizza scene is bubbling with options — and we keep finding ways to top ourselves. If you’re on the quest for the perfect slice, we’ve pie-oneered a list of 15 places to grab pizza that are definitely worth the dough.
Uncle Vito’s Slice of NY, 1800 15th St., Ste. E, Sacramento
Its location across the street from Ace of Spades paired with a late night happy hour make Uncle Vito’s perfect for a post-concert pit stop — not to mention it offers what can only be referred to as “Costco-sized” slices.
Giovanni’s Old World New York Pizzeria, Multiple locations
Stop by for lunch Monday-Saturday to snag two slices and a soda for $10.99 — maybe even add a bucket of beers if the rest of your day looks open. We’re not here to tell you how to live your life.
Pieces | Pizza by the Slice, 1309 21st St., Sacramento
Slingin’ slices since ’93, this joint also has vegan options.
Roma’s Pizzeria, 5743 Franklin Blvd., Sacramento
One bite is all it takes to see why hungry Sacramentans keep coming back to the original Roma’s location after 50 years in business.
Think outside the pizza box
Curry Pizza House, Multiple locations
Classic Indian flavors work with incredible pizza crusts and some serious amounts of cheese to give us savory and spicy delights such as the Chicken Tikka pizza — made with garlic sauce, chicken tikka, cilantro, tomatoes, and red and green onions.
Pizzasaurus Rex, 2322 K St., Sacramento
In addition to multiple vegan options, the menu includes the tantalizing potato pizza — a white sauce pie of incredible crust topped with potatoes (duh), onions, garlic, parsley, and sun-dried tomatoes.
Buffalo Pizza and Ice Cream Co., 2030 10th St., Sacramento
Besides traditional pies (and ice cream, as implied by the name), Buffalo also serves up breakfast pizzas — a mouth-watering combo of scrambled eggs and cheese topped with a variety of meats or veggies.
Ciro’s Pizza Cafe, Multiple locations
For those who can’t get enough of Ciro’s, you can order a DIY Pizza Kit to make their delicious pies in the comfort of your own kitchen.
Masullo Pizza, 2711 Riverside Blvd., Sacramento
Masullo is known for its Neopolitan-style pies that are wood-fired to near-perfection — like the prosciutto-topped Mustapha — along with a small selection of other Italian dishes.
Majka Pizzeria and Bakery, 1704 15th St., Sacramento
This vegetarian pizzeria offers daily specials complimented by a recommended bottle of wine.
Federalist Pizza, 2009 Matsui Alley, Sacramento
Not only has Federalist been serving delicious pies for almost a decade, it also has a Sunday brunch menu and a beer tasting experience for guests to enjoy.
Rico’s Pizza, 2650 Northgate Blvd., Sacramento
Give it up for the crust on these bad boys, which somehow hold up a literal mountain of toppings no matter how thin you order them.
Anonimo Pizza, 400 12th St., Sacramento
We can’t decide which pizza we like more — the truffle pizza or the potato pesto pizza — so we recommend you just order both.
We know, this is just a piece of the pie. If your favorite place to get pizza wasn’t mentioned, let us know so we can show it some love in the future.
