There’s a lot to love about 786 Degrees - and pizza has very little to do with it. Despite a rather corporate-sounding name, this mom and pop spot in a Sun Valley stip mall has become a local legend for serving pies with outside-of-the-box toppings (think tikka masala and doner kebab) as well as traditional Neapolitan-style. And while the pizza is good (particularly the Napolitana ), it’s the experience inside the tiny shop that makes it all so special. A fiercely passionate staff, International pizza awards hanging from the walls, and a giant TV blasting old Italian tourism videos - 786 is fun, quirky, and the perfect break from your regular work-week slog.
