Pizza in Dublin/Pleasanton
I'm still getting used to my new surroundings and need some pizza advice. I'm getting tired of NY Pizza, plus it's not that great. Amici's I like, but it's kind of expensive.
Anyone have thoughts on Garlex or De La Torre's. And is Papa Johns any good compared to the local stuff? I used to be a huge fan of Round Table but the quality has really dwindled over the past decade or so and I've become more fond of thin crust pizza.
My favorite places in SF were Paulines and Arinells and I had two enjoyable meals at pizzeria Delfina. I also love Pizza Antica in Layfayette. Do we have anything like these places in Pleasanton/Dublin?
Slim pickens in this area for really good pizza, but I'd recommend Gay 90's in Downtown Pleasanton for solid traditional style pizza. Tomatina's in Dublin has a nice, not too expensive, thin crust variety that is becoming one of my favorites. If you want to venture out to neighboring San Ramon, there's a branch of Zachary's for Chicago Style pizza. I'm not a big fan of deep dish, but those who like it seem to love Zachary's take on it.
my sister and borther in law like pyzano's in castro valley... i'm eh about it though.. they usually get the pesto pizza... i think they rant and rave about it that it's okay.... i think other people like it too.. i haven't really tried all of their pizza's though... if other people have gone here, they may want to comment. i'm sorry if i haven't been too helpful... i usually try to say the reasons behind my endorsements/non-endorsements.... <=)
