Veggie pizza wins the day. While as a local I get a half baked cheese and top it at home, I bring people for full pies, and get a slice for lunch monthly. Try the thin crust, it's a sourdough. Salads are fabulous. Vegan cheeses, GF crust available. Delivery services offer this pie, too. Restaurant is bustling and energetic.

We have been eating this pizza for over 30 years. Started out at the location on College Ave and now order them at the San Ramon location. Very enjoyable.

Zachary's deep dish chicken and basil is the go to pizza. Delicious and satisfying. They have half baked pizza to finish baking at home. Always busy and best to order in advance.

The food & service are absolutely terrific. Of course I highly recommend the DEEP DISH pizza. Have tried the spinach, BBQ chicken, & plain cheese, & all are heavenly!

Great pizza in Pleasant Hill across from theater. Pepperoni, sausage, and mushroom was great. Little crowded a little loud were my only complaints.

I'm a thin crust guy, but for deep pizza Zachary's rules. 1 or 2 slices is plenty. A good beer selection as well.

Tomato deep dish Chicago style pizza is legendary. We have been patrons for over 30 years now. Awesome poster collection too. A true Berkely hang out and excellent pizza by the slice place near Trader Joe's. Though the wait can be long, the pizza and beer is well worth it.
