What’s Good: Melo’s is the kind of restaurant you could eat at every day of the week and still find something new. Their pizzas run the gamut from east coast classics like the New Yorker to new west coast staples like BBQ chicken, but you’ll also find generous dinner salads, pesto sliders, and Italian pasta classics on their menu. With an open, casual atmosphere, Melo’s is one of the best places on our list for large groups.
Our favorite pizza: You can’t go wrong with Melo’s Combination pizza, with pepperoni, salami, mushrooms, ham, linguica, bell peppers, and sausage.

What’s Good: If you grew up in the Tri-Valley, you have to have eaten at Gay Nineties PIzza – or at least heard about it. While the pizza here is a little more expensive, it’s some of the best around. Fresh ingredients, an old-school atmosphere, and friendly employees make this a must-stop pizza shop. Their meatball sub and chicken parmesan subs are also crowd pleasers.

What’s Good: Patxi’s was an instant hit once they opened their pizza place in Livermore. While you can get thin crust, we recommend ordering one of their deep dish pizzas . It takes a while to bake (they recommend ordering ahead 45 minutes or else be prepared to wait that long or more for your pizza), but it’s so worth the wait, especially for those who have never before experienced the glory of deep dish pizza. It may sound funny if you’ve never tried it before, but be sure to try pouring honey on your leftover crust.
Our favorite pizza: The Matt Cain or Vegan deep dish.
Address: 11891 Dublin Blvd, Dublin, CA 94568
Phone: (925) 828-9380
What’s Good: Frankie Johnnie & Luigi Too is one of those places with that local charm. Specializing not only in pizza, but in pasta and other Italian foods, this is a great place to go if you need a variety of dishes to make everyone in the family happy. Even if you’re not in the mood for pizza, try their sausage bread, penne calabrese, or meatballs.
Our favorite pizza: Tina’s Too Too Much and the Santa Margherita

What’s Good: If you’re looking for a pizza with a lot of personality, you need to check out Fahrenheit Wood Fired Pizza in Pleasanton. At Fahrenheit, they toss, assemble, and cook the pizza right in front of you, wood fired oven and all. Enjoy a beer while your pizza bakes happily, then dig into a Porkatarian, Sweet & Salty with balsamic onion jam, or a Big Philly.

Labeled as “ethnic fusion pies,” Tandoori Pizza is a fun place to visit with family or friends who have more adventurous tastebuds. They also serve traditional American-style pizzas for those of us who just want a straightforward pizza.
