The best pizza in Cupertino: a local guide

Cupertino is known for thick crust pizza which is a type of pie which, while it originated in Italy, has over the years spread its popularity to all corners of the globe. In its most basic form, normally called a Margarita or cheese pizza, a thick crust pie consists of a chunky dough base covered in tomato sauce and then liberally sprinkled with cheese. When baked the dough crisps up and the cheese melts into the sauce to create a flavorsome combination that's hard to beat. What you will find when being offered a thick crust at the pizzerias in Cupertino is that it'll mostly be more than just a simple cheese pizza. The Cupertino pizzeria chefs are masters at adding tasty ingredient combinations to their pies which turns them into true delights and makes them rank highly on the tasty pizza scale of one to ten.
