The best pizza in Novato: a local guide

Novato residents are proud Californians and they are even prouder to be home to delicious California-style pizza. California-style pizza is a unique blend of two pizza-making techniques: Italian thin crust and New York City-style pizza.

New York City-style pizza is made by rolling the dough very thin so that it gets crispy when it is being cooked and can hold the sauce without getting soggy or wet. Italian thin-crust pizza is extremely similar to New York City pizza, except that it is much smaller in size. Italian thin-crust pizzas are more sized as a personal pizza and the slices are not usually as large as the New York City slices.

When they are fused, you get California-style pizza that is typically topped with unique toppings that are popular in California, but not as well-loved in other states around the nation. California pizzas are crispy, delicious, and always well made.
