A midtown institution, Paragary's has presented Sacramento diners with fine cuisine inspired by the local harvest since 1983. Behind the scenes in this elegant and light-filled bistro (plus leafy terrace for al fresco dining) is a wood oven that turns out a succinct range of artisan pizzas. A trio of pizzas features on the dinner menu, all topped with local ingredients along with a few of Italy's finest exports, such as San Marzano tomatoes sharing a spot with prosciutto, arugula, mozzarella, and parmesan. Fennel sausage, maitake mushroom, and caramelized onions with a little thyme and ample fontina and mozzarella is another pizza option, as is the intriguing combination of pancetta, crushed potato, and cured egg yolk with kale pesto. Happy hour patrons at Paragary's find a margherita pizza on the menu too.

Brick-oven pizzas claim a substantial section of both lunch and dinner menus at Romano's Macaroni Grill in Roseville. The popular chain of over 90 Italian-American restaurants is proud to import many of its ingredients from family-owned farms in Italy, among them buffalo mozzarella from Caserta. That mozzarella tops most of the pizzas, including the minimalist cheese pizza and the farmhouse with butcher-chopped bacon, prosciutto, pepperoni, sauteed spinach, fonduta, and parmesan. Diners might opt for the unlimited soup or Caesar or green salad add-on, available at lunch and dinner. Pizza lovers should know that Romano's Macaroni Grill also offers three different flatbreads on its happy hour bites menu.

Woodstock's Pizza, a small regional chain that started in Oregon in 1977, designed its signature pizza style around hand-tossed dough with a folded crust and abundance of toppings. The Davis venue targets local students with its fun, friendly atmosphere, but its creative pizzas plus craft beers, salads, sandwiches, and appetizers appeal to anyone seeking top-quality comfort food. The restaurant prepares its pizza dough in-house every morning, and its signature marinara sauce uses only California-grown tomatoes. Diners have many options, including a white, whole-wheat, or gluten-free crust, six sauces, and over two-dozen toppings. Opt for a make-your-own approach or select a signature pizza in classic or uncommon combinations. Among the latter are the kickin carnitas with Southern chipotle sauce and crispy bacon, and the sriracha-cha with creamy sriracha sauce, bacon, pineapple, and green onions. Woodstock's Pizza also offers a warm cinnabread dessert pie.
