    Simply put, there’s nothing quite like a delicious pizza. It’s the ultimate treat after a long week of studying, the perfect meal after a night out or hanging with friends, and the tastiest food ever paired with binge-watching. From the apartments for rent in Davis, CA, there are literally hundreds of pizza places to choose from. Which ones are the best, though?

    Everyone knows that no two pizzas are created equal. Some places churn out top-quality pies while others might as well be from the freezer isle of your local chain grocery store. If you’re looking to sink your teeth into nothing but the most flavor-rich pizzas in the area, then these ten places have exactly what you’re after.

    1. Woodstock’s Pizza

    Woodstock combines two of the best things in the world: Pizza and beer. Their happy hour lasts from 4 to 6 p.m. on weekdays, offering half-off all pitchers. Trivia nights are on Thursdays, but those are just the icing on the cake. The real reason people love Woodstock is for their self-proclaimed legendary pizzas.

    You can always create your own or get a half and half to split with your friends, but their signature concoctions are tough to pass up. Pies like Kickin’ Carnitas, Bangers & Tots, and Siracha Cha are loaded to the brim with unique flavor combinations.

    Veggie lovers should try out the Pesto Primavera and Grateful Veg, while carnivores will fall in love with the All Meat Orgy. Of course, you’ll have to try the Davis Classic at some point in time as well. With so many options, this is one pizza joint you won’t grow tired of.

    2. Blaze Fast-Fire’d Pizza

    Blaze focuses on a thinner crust as opposed to Woodstock’s more traditional style. They also feature in-depth allergen info and a nutrition calculator on their website. You can pick up two pepperoni pies for just $10, build your own, or order half a pizza with a salad.

    The options here are fantastic and the toppings are always fresh whether it’s basil or balls of mozzarella cheese. The Red Wine and Green Stripe are two of the more popular choices, but don’t forget about sides like the S’more Pie and Dough Knots.

    3. Village Bakery

    While the Village Bakery is always a number one stop for your pastry cravings, their pizzas are incredible. You might not think so at first glance but looks aren’t everything. The quality of the ingredients from the dough to the toppings make this a must-stop for any pizza lover.

    Take the garlic spinach, for example, topped with fresh mozzarella balls and sautéed onions. The veggie, which includes eggplant and feta, is another fan favorite from Village Bakery. One of the best parts about eating here is the ability to pick up a dessert with your order.

    4. Lamppost Pizza

    Lamppost offers an eclectic mix of bar favorites from wings to subs, all of which pair perfectly with their beer selection. Their pizzas are smothered in and dripping with cheese. Fresh tomatoes, green peppers, and purple onions are all available, but their garlic chicken remains a favorite amongst fans.

    If you’re headed here with a group, then give their breadstick appetizer a try. It’s cooked and served just like their pizzas, retaining the same shape and cuts while being served with garlic dipping sauce. Yelpers also recommend their Caesar salad.

    5. Uncle Vito’s Slice of NY

    Wings, craft beer, and New York-style pizza are what placed Uncle Vito’s on the map. That and their all you can eat pizza for just $8.95 a person, which includes a fountain drink. Head in for happy hour and take advantage of one of the best deals in town; a slice of pizza with a draft beer for $6.

    All of their pizzas, from the classic to their combo, are made New York-style (large, hand-tossed, and thin crust). The wings here are delicious, but vegetarians can join in the fun with buffalo cauliflower. Whatever you order, make sure to get a side of Vito’s French fries.

    6. Steve’s Pizza

    “Pizza Perfected,” is the slogan at Steve’s, and they’re not far off. Every ingredient that goes into your pizza is as fresh as can be. There’s plenty of bicycle parking outside, making it an eco-friendly and easy trip from West Village. Plus, you’re likely to run into Steve himself.

    What makes Steve’s stand out is the simplicity. His honest commitment to quality ingredients and affordable prices creates an array of options that can’t be beat. Plus, you can pair your pie with beer, wine, tea, or soda.

    7. Extreme Pizza

    Extreme offers everything from pub-style appetizers to calzones and gigantic subs. They also feature gluten-free, vegan, and health conscious options. What makes them extreme are their signature pizzas, however.

    Each of their creations comes loaded with an insanely delicious combination of toppings that are sure to make your mouth water. Toppings like Portuguese linguica, Italian sausage, and house-made zesty alfredo sauce are just the tip of the iceberg. It’s hard to make a decision between their meat and veggie creations, but you really can’t go wrong with whatever you choose.

    8. Pizza Guys

    Pizza Guys is best known for their unique flatbreads. The rosemary potato bacon, fiery pepperoni bacon, creamy pesto artichoke, and grilled chicken spinach remain favorites amongst loyal Aggie fans. They also offer just about any combination you can imagine from a spinach garlic chicken to Texas barbecue and crunchy club.

    This is also an excellent stop for pasta, which features insanely fresh toppings. The wings are alright as well, if you’re in the mood for an appetizer. If you’re ordering for a crowd, make sure to pick up one of their cookie cakes for dessert.

    9. Cenario’s Pizza of Davis

    Thick crust pizzas loaded with your choice of toppings are what you’ll find at Cenario’s. They’re a quaint little shop, but they churn out delicious flavors and perfect sizes whether you’re eating solo or with friends. Try their margherita pizza. You won’t be disappointed.

    10. Village Pizza & Grill

    Last on the list is Village Pizza & Grill with their single-serve pies. Village provides unique combination from an artichoke pizza with olives and goat cheese to a smoked salmon that will send your taste buds for a spin. Dog-friendly with plenty of alcohol options, it’s worth stopping in for.
