New owners and a GREAT staff - especially Amanda - means that there is now great pizza in Gualala. Great tasting crust, sauce, cheeses and high quality and plentiful toppings. We went there on a weeknight at 8:10 only to find out they closed at 8:00. Amanda opened up the door, insisted we come in and order, hand made our excellent combination pizza, poured us draft beers while we waited and gave us our pizza hot out of the oven. Really excellent pizza and leftovers for breakfast the next morning when it still tasted great. The next time we were there we had a new waitress, and (unnoticed by us) she overcharged us. The next day we got a call from the owner letting us know what happened, apologizing profusely and offering to bring us our money to our home! Not needed, as we went back the next night and just got another pizza. Free beer as an apology from the owner. All in all, this is a long overdue addition to the lean culinary scene in Gualala.

Best Pizza west of New England. Perfect balance of toppings and crust. Very friendly staff and overall vibe. Only a few tables but enjoyed eating there with friends.

After driving through Gualala umpteen times, The Upper Crust Pizzeria was open! After hiking 8 miles on the coastal trail through Sea Ranch, pizza and beer seemed the perfect choice. And it was great. We had the Mediterranean with artichoke hearts, red onion, and kalamata olives. Add to that some good, on tap, Anderson Valley Pale Ale.
This place apparently changed hands not to long ago and the new owner has cleaned up quite a bit and made improvements. It isn't a fancy place, but the pizza is good, reasonably priced, the staff is friendly, and a couple of TVs if you like sports. What more could you ask for? Well, longer hours! They don't open til 4. We only enjoyed them because it was a holiday and they were open early.

Under new management the past year or so. Decent variety, generous toppings. It's convenient to have a pizzeria in Gualala.

The pizza had a good, well-cooked crust. The other reviewers were right about good quality, fresh toppings and nicely-flavored sauce. We had a large meat combination for $24. It was very large and provided dinner and a late night snack for two. Tiny seating area, but my husband watched the football game on one tv and I watched the baseball game on the other while we waited. The staff was pleasant and efficient and it didn't take long. We ate in our motel room watching the sunset. Would definitely buy a pizza there again.
