You can ask anyone from the Valley what their favorite thing is about living here. More often than not, they’ll say it’s the food. From taco shops to hot chicken spots to Black-owned restaurants, the 818 has it all. Read on for a list of the best pizza in the San Fernando Valley.

We’ve included places you can order from and places where you can dine in. We also feature all types of pizza: Detroit style, New York pizza, and even deep dish for those who are fans of that. Let’s get to it, shall we?

The 15 best places to get pizza in the San Fernando Valley

1. Joe Peeps

Whether you get a larger-than-life slice or a whole pie, you can’t go wrong when you order from Joe Peeps. It’s the most NY pizza you can get without actually going to the Big Apple—and Anna Kendrick’s been there!

2. Pizza Pie Eatery

The Pizza Pie eatery gets a lot of love on social media, and for good reason! Their pizza’s delicious and they do what they can to uplift creators in the Valley via social media.

3. 786 Degrees

Before you try to order a pepperoni and jalapeño pizza at 786 Degrees, let us help you: Take a look at their menu. There are far more interesting things to order!

4. Napoli’s Pizza Kitchen

With a storefront on Burbank Boulevard, Napoli’s Pizza Kitchen serves up some delicious and authentic pizza, like their barbecue chicken pizza pictured below.

5. MacLeod Ale Brewing Co.

We’re not unaware of how weird it is to put a brewery on this list—especially one that is no longer serving pizza. That said, the pies at MacLeod were probably the best that the Valley had to offer. In fact, they’re so good that they’re sharing the recipes on Instagram.

6. Antonio’s Pizzeria

We have to admit that we’re big fans of BBQ chicken pizza (obviously), and we also have to admit that Antonio’s Pizza is where it’s at when it comes to a local pizza shop.

7. Greco’s New York Pizza

If you’re a fan of New York-style pizza, do yourself a favor and order from Greco’s New York Pizza this weekend. You know you’ll probably eat pizza at one point or another.

8. Pizzasaurus Rex

This is one of the best and most lowkey pizza spots in the Valley. Also, let this be our official statement that pineapple does go on pizza. Not sorry.

9. Mulberry Street Pizzeria

Yes, Mulberry Street Pizzeria is expensive—but it is also an experience. I mean, they have a freaking rigatoni pizza, for crying out loud. That’s a pizza with pasta on it, aka a dream come true.

10. The Thyme Pizzeria

This is vegan pizza in Winnetka! Need we say more?

11. Casa de Pizza

I grew up down the street from this classic Italian joint. The red booths and black-and-white picnic tablecloths still bring me comfort—which is why I was sad to learn this place was going to close. The operative word is “was,” though, because a heroic someone decided to buy this place and give it a new life. Thank goodness for local heroes!

12. Rocco’s Tavern

Even though there’s a location in Studio City, I realize this isn’t exactly only a Valley spot. However, the pizza here is so good that I had to put Rocco’s on the list. Plus, starting at 10 p.m., the pub-like restaurant offers a pretty sick happy hour.

13. Pizza Wagon of Brooklyn

As its name indicates, this pizzeria has Brooklyn-style pie. In case you’re unfamiliar, that means it’s rather thin and very cheesy. I suggest ordering the traditional pepperoni. If you’re in an experimental mood, though, try the pesto.

14. D-Town Pizzeria

Obviously, this Detroit pizzeria is not Valley-based. That said, I tried it at its Topanga Social location and was so mindblown that I had to throw it in here too. I got the DBM, which features a creamy burrata as its star ingredient.

15. Pizzana

Another not-exactly-local spot that deserves a spot on this list because it has a Valley location? Pizzana. A friend treated me to lunch here and I’ve been wanting to go back ever since. Fair warning: If you go during peak times—like on the weekends or around dinner—you can expect to have an hour-long wait. Don’t say I didn’t warn you!
