This place is a good choice for a custom pizza when you are visiting downtown Santa Barbara. However, unlike "Blaze" and "Pieology", who do not charge extra for any amount of toppings on their custom pizzas, this place does. My 12" pizza cost over $18...More

I went there based on the reviews for their gluten-free pizza and was not disappointed. The crust was crispy, the tomato sauce really delicious. They have a procedure in place to avoid cross-contamination that is much better than Blaze Pizza where you have to watch...More

I tried buffalo chicken and my wife got neapoliten. Neapoliten was awesome. I’ve decided chicken is not ok as a topic on pizza. But this place is rocks. Wooden fire pizza hell yeah...

If I ever have a bad pizza here it's my own fault since I got to chose everything that went onto it. Bonus: they are reasonably priced and have good beer. They're also good about supporting local charities.
