Davis, CA - Pizza at Village Bakery

Very good NY style pizza. Better than Giovanni's in Sacramento (Land Park).

Overall, I'd say Village Bakery is the one to beat overall in Davis/Sacramento with the list being BJs, Pizza Guys, Round Table, Zelda's, Giovanni's, Pizza Hut and the rest of the chains.

  1. Agree that they have awesome pizza. I've only gotten it by the slice. While delicious it seems more California style to me - eggplant and lots of veggies - sometimes even a bit frou frou. Great yes. My heart belongs to the meatball pizza at Giovanni's on Folsom Blvd. in Sacramento. I dream about it (and have been known to have one brought to me by visitors making the 2.5 hour trip up to see me :)

    1. I love their pizza! Besides slices, I get whole pizzas to take home and bake. Sometimes I just buy their frozen crusts and make my own at home. They thaw very fast though... Wonderful breads too.

      1. Yeah--I like Village too...have you tried Symposium? It has amazing pizza as well!!

          We went there once, sat way in the back. It was really hot inside, I couldn't even tell you how the pizza was. I know people love it, but we haven't been back...

        2. The Village Bakery has great pizza, but be warned that their toppings are not your standard pizza place toppings. More importantly, they only seem to make one batch of pizza dough each day and they seem to want to ensure that they have enough pizza by the slice to sell, so it is not unusual to call them with an order only to be told that they are no longer selling whole pizzas that day. They also sell great breads and pastries (such as cream puffs with real whipped cream), but again, you can never be sure what they will have in stock. As long as you can be flexible, you can get some great baked goods there.
