This is a real treat along an otherwise unremarkable stretch of Fruitridge Road. Glad we decided to check out this newer New York-style pizza establishment -- opened in July 2014. Owner and chef, Jimmy, is really trying to make a difference putting his heart and soul into these hand-crafted thin-crust pizzas. I loved the crispy texture and the tomato sauce had just a hint of oregano. We got just a couple of slices of old-fashioned pepperoni but it really hit the spot. I would have liked a little more pepperoni, but it was still delish. Freshly made, slices arrived wonderfully warm. The menu also includes calzone and house-made wings -- I will definitely be back to try these. There's a large selection of pizza toppings to customize your pie or slice. They also have a gluten-free option, but this dough is out-sourced.
This hole-in-the-wall -- and that's what it is from the outside -- deserves your attention. Jimmy's hoping to expand the space. No beer (sadly), but the local dive bar Idle Hour is right across the parking lot.
And check this, Cali Slice Pizza is open six days a week and until 3am on weekends.
