Pizza Cookery is a casual Encino family restaurant that has been around forever. There is a small parking lot in the back with very narrow spots, as well as street/metered parking in front on both Ventura and Newcastle. There is sawdust on the floor, with beer signs hanging throughout the somewhat dated yet clean restaurant. The white haired older man,... More

We shared a large vegan salad and a large vegan cheese as well as beers. Perfect after hiking in Encino Hills! Our second visit and we will be back. Friendly service.

Stopped by this hidden gem on my back from LAX to Oxnard. The vegan calzone with Daiya cheese(my favorite) mushroom and basil was generously sized and tasty. The italian salad was satisfying as well. I will be back next time I am in the area.

but the food was mediocre! It seemed like everything was store bought... I had the pizza, the vegan wings, and shared the cheesecake. My boyfriend had calzone and salad. I think the best thing I tasted was the salad, it was actually fresh. However, the pizza felt like one of those frozen pizzas and the calzone was basically a folded... More

My favorite pizza place from my old stomping grounds. Just went back to my hometown for a couple of days and had to get some pizza and garlic rolls. This is far and away the best pizza place I have ever been to, and I've been to a bunch in NY, PA, CT, MA, and even the famous Lou Malnati's... More

My husband and I had a cheat meal and had pizza here. The pizza was very good even for gluten free. The pizza wasn't greasy and there were lots of toppings to chose from. My husband had a regular pizza and really liked it as well. The salad are also huge and able to be shared by a large group.... More

I am not much of a review writer but I just had to write about this little place. We had gluten free pizza with vegan cheese and it was great.

We love the salads and eat here almost every time we visit the valley. The rolls are to die for! Unfortunately the pizza is NY style - thin greasy (so much oil I soaked a whole paper towel on one slice) with pathetic pepporonis. Service is fast and efficient.

PC is great for either take out or sit in; in fact as an in dining restaurant, it is a great place to sit and talk as it has a private feeling and like there is not a rush. It is not chaotic feeling like some pizza places. It is also great for take out-- and there are a number... More

It has been our 2nd visit to the Encino location in recents weeks. We had out of town visitors and they loved this place. It was a little wait to get our table because they were really packed when we got there, but it was really good.
