- Cuisines: Italian
NileGuide Expert tip:
Try their Unique Pizza, the Tahoe Ranch with crown crust brushed with garlic oil, spread with ranch dressing, mozzarella cheese blend, red onions, real bacon bits, chicken and fresh tomatoes (No red sauce on this pizza.)
- Blue Moon Pizza has become a neighborhood favorite in the CalAve District by serving gourmet pizza for over two decades. The ingredients are fresh and the pizza is hand tossed. They best describe their pizza as a fusion between central Italian and Western American. (Quality in the crust and loaded with toppings!)
Blue Moon serves up pizza by the pie or the slice as well as calzones, beer, wine and salads.
The pizza start at $6.50 for an 8" and go up to $22.98 for a 16". The names and ingredients are a mix of new and classic: the Chevre has goat cheese, roasted garlic, sun-dried tomatoes and herbs; the Big Apple has Italian sausage, mushrooms, pepperoni, green peppers, onions, and olives and the Have a Heart has Prosciutto ham, artichoke hearts, sprinkled with fresh garlic.
The location is great. Right next to the Biggest Little City Bar and just a few blocks south of downtown. The atmosphere is funky and artsy and there are sometimes tables outside so you can eat your slice on the sidewalk.
