Sac’s Top Pizza Places
Even bad pizza is still good pizza. Thankfully, in Sacramento the options for practically perfect pizza are abundant, offering everything from old-school thin crust to innovative ingredients. Sactown Magazine took on the arduous task of tasting pies from nearly every pizzeria from Davis to Dutch Flat. Writers/culinary experts took into account everything from wood-burning or gas-fired ovens, atmosphere, and old world vs. contemporary training.
