Sacramento Pizza Restaurants You Have to Try

For those nights you just want to eat pizza and watch movies.

Sacramento is known as the “Farm to Fork” city due to the vast number of farmers’ markets and the culture around bringing fresh, delicious ingredients to the table.

The restaurants in the city get behind this culture by serving some of the highest-quality food in the country.

But in this article, I won’t be discussing” Farm to Fork” as much as “Farm to Hand” because it will be all about the best pizza in town!

The eastern side of the U.S. is better known for its pizza, but unlike cities such as Chicago and New York that focus heavily on one style of pizza, you can find a wide range of pies throughout Sacramento.

Here is where you can find the best pizza in Sacramento.

Chicago Fire

2416 J St, Sacramento, CA 95816
Phone: 916-443-0440
Visit Website

Chicago Fire, between Midtown and Boulevard Park, is undoubtedly the best place to get Chicago-style deep-dish pizza in Sacramento.

If you’ve ever had deep-dish pizza in Chicago, you might not find it quite as thick, but it still does the trick if you are craving that style of pizza in the area.

I love the other menu items at Chicago Fire almost as much, such as their garlic buffalo chicken wings, fried artichoke, and stacked Italian beef sandwich.

Come for happy hour for discounts on both drinks and pizza!

Masullo Pizza

2711 Riverside Blvd, Sacramento, CA 95818
Phone: 916-443-8929

Sometimes I enjoy a pizza spot full of decor and unique frills, but other times I just want to be in a relaxed yet stylish setting to enjoy my pie.

Masullo, located south of downtown near the Land Park area, offers the latter — an elevated space to eat tasty, wood-fired pizza.

Plus, they offer both red and white sauce pizzas, which I appreciate cause I thoroughly enjoy both!

I recommend the classics, like Margherita Pizza, and more unique pies like The Jacqueline Potato Pizza.

They also serve tasty pasta here, like lemon arugula pasta, but getting a pizza here is a must!

Zelda’s Original Gourmet Pizza

1415 21st Street, Sacramento, CA 95811
Phone: 916-447-1400

 Like Chicago Fire, Zelda’s offers Chicago-style deep-dish pizza in the downtown area.

I find that they are both so good, each with their unique take on the style.

In terms of Zelda’s, I appreciate the wide array of toppings and how it seems that their crust is always perfectly crispy instead of getting too soggy from the amount of sauce.

The sauce is also usually seasoned quite well, and it’s a common move to add garlic to your pie if it doesn’t already come with it.

Federalist Public House (Dine-In, Takeout, or Curbside Pick Up)

Federalist Public House is a cheery, causal hangout spot that offers an excellent open space to chill with your friends, drink cold beer, and play bocce ball.

Located in Midtown near Alaro Craft Brewery, this pizza restaurant has brewery vibes but focuses more on the pizza aspect than the beer aspect.

But with communal tables, a bocce ball court, mason jars, and a hip vibe, you could have fooled me at first!

In any case, they have delicious pizza, including some fun ones like “Porch Pizza with Pancetta” and “Chorizo and Potato,” which are two of my favorites.

Giovanni’s Old World New York Pizzeria

Of course, Chicago isn’t the only city-based style of pizza you can find in Sacramento. Giovanni’s specializes in New-York style pizza, which I’m in love with.

They have two locations in Sacramento, but I prefer the one on Folsom Blvd in East Sacramento.

The thin, crispy crust is perfect, so any pizza you choose will be great.

I tend to stick with half cheese and half pepperoni pizzas here to make it easy to share with others.

In addition to pizza, they have excellent beer on tap, making it a nice place to hang out with friends.

Luigi’s Pizza Parlor

3800 Stockton Blvd, Sacramento, CA 95820
Phone: 916-456-0641
Visit Website

Luigi’s Pizza Parlor is an old-school parlor, not just in style but in reality.

It’s been around since 1953, so they know a thing or two about perfecting their craft!

Their pizza is Sacramento’s version of New York-style pizza, so the crust is thin, crispy, and delightful.

But don’t just rely on the crust and play it safe with cheese and pepperoni at Luigi’s.

Instead, I urge you to give their Italian sausage a try.

It’s perhaps the best Italian sausage I’ve had at any restaurant in the city!


4818 Folsom Blvd, Sacramento, CA 95819
Phone: 916-706-1748
Visit Website

OneSpeed has an array of pizza and other Italian dishes, plus an extensive wine and beer list, making it a great casual spot to dine with friends and family in the evenings.

It’s located in East Sacramento near East Portal Park, so it’s accessible without being as crowded as the central downtown restaurants tend to get.

I enjoy the mushroom pizza, and I also like starting with a sharing antipasto platter of various meats and cheeses, especially if I’m with a medium-sized group.

If you’re feeling particularly hungry, order their meat calzone.

It is large and stuffed to the brim with meaty, cheesy goodness that’ll leave you sleeping like a baby when you get home!

Roma 2 Pizzeria

8491 Folsom Blvd, Sacramento, CA 95826
Phone: 916-383-9264
Visit Website

Roma 2, in the College/Glen area, is one of the highest-rated pizza places in Sacramento, and for a good reason.

The pizza in this cozy joint is excellent, and they even have a gluten-free option for those with dietary restrictions.

I always go for the classic Margherita pizza, a personal favorite of mine.

The sauce is flavorful, the cheese is perfectly melted, and the crust is thin and crispy.

However, if you’re in the mood for meat, don’t hesitate to get their all-meat pizza with salami, pepperoni, sausage, beef, linguica, and Canadian bacon.

Each ingredient is scrumptious, and getting a meat pizza with six different types of meat is rare!

Roma Pizzeria

5743 Franklin Blvd, Sacramento, CA 95824
Phone: 916-421-1881
Visit Website

Roma Pizzeria is a great place for pizza in the Land Park area of Sacramento.

Like Roma Pizzeria II mentioned above, it offers a cozy space with padded booths to enjoy some tasty pies.

Their” special” pizza, similar to a supreme pizza, is incredible because all of the meat, veggie, and dairy ingredients are fresh and high-quality.

You can get unique pizza here as well, such as the margarita with shrimp.

Roma Pizzeria offers many non-pizza items, too, such as chef salad, lasagna, and world-class ravioli.

Uncle Vito’s Slice of N.Y.

1800 15th St ste e, Sacramento, CA 95811
Phone: 916-382-4419
Visit Website

Uncle Vito’s, located in downtown Sacramento across the street from Ace of Spades music venue, reminds me more of a bar than a pizza restaurant, which is part of its charm.

It’s fun to go for happy hour here with some friends, play on the pinball machines, grab a few drinks, and then sit to enjoy some tasty New York-style pizzas.

It’s also one of the few places you can go to order pizza by the slice, which is helpful when you’re not hungry enough for a full pie and just want to snack.

Though, the pizza-by-the-slice is still quite large, so you may still want to split it with a friend if you’re not hungry!

Majka Pizzeria & Bakery

1704 15th St, Sacramento, CA 95814
Phone: 916-572-9316
Visit Website

Near Uncle Vito’s downtown, you’ll also come across Majka Pizzeria & Bakery.

If you want more options for high-quality veggie pizzas that aren’t just a throwaway option on a meat-focused menu, then this is your spot.

They have so many tasty veggie pizza options that both vegetarians and meat-eaters will love, such as mushroom pizza or broccoli and cheddar pizza.

Plus, I like being able to treat my sweet tooth after I’ve satisfied my savory one, so the bakery portion of the restaurant is perfect!

Cookies after pizza? Yes, please!
