There are many different restaurants in Visalia that have delicious pizzas to offer. A few of the best ones happen to be from Pizano’s, Planing Mill, Chili’s, and Round Table. With their unique pizzas, they’re definitely considered the tastiest in town.


1. Brown Sugar & Spice from Pizano’s

If you’re tired of having marinara sauce on your pizza, then the Brown Sugar & Spice pizza from Pizano’s is right for you (Image of Brown Sugar & Spice pizza shown to the left). Unlike most pizzas, this one has brown sugar glaze as the sauce and is topped with pepperoncinis, cracked red pepper, and ham. Brown sugar on pizza may sound gross, but it’s actually really good. This pizza has the perfect combination of sweet, savory, and spicy.


2. Thai Pie from Planing Mill

Thai food is usually pretty spicy, and from eating this pizza, you can get a similar flavor. Spicy food lovers would love this pizza. It has chicken, roasted garlic, serranos (chilis), peanuts, onions, and cilantro. The chilis help to give it a nice kick, but trust me, you will need a couple of drink refills just to eat a few slices. Once you take a bite of the Thai Pie, you’ll never want to stop, even if your burning tongue disagrees with you.


3. California Grilled Chicken Flatbread from Chili’s

For those who are wanting a variety of flavors, then the California Grilled Chicken Flatbread from Chili’s is definitely the right option. This appetizing dish has tomato sauce, grilled chicken, applewood smoked bacon, monterey jack, mozzarella, cilantro, homemade pico-de-gallo, sliced avocados, and is drizzled with roasted garlic aioli. Its creamy and flavorsome taste will drive you crazy.


4. Tomato Pesto Flatbread from Round Table

For a more simple pizza, try the Tomato Pesto Flatbread from Round Table. This pizza contains a creamy pesto sauce, mozzarella, basil, tomatoes, and is brushed with garlic olive oil. The ingredients may seem bland, but their pesto sauce gives it a nice, creamy taste, and the basil adds a good flavor to it.


5. Maui Zaui from Round Table

The Maui Zaui is a sweet and spicy pizza that has red sauce, ham, bacon, pineapples, tomatoes, and red & green onions. This pizza is sweet and spicy, but not too spicy, which gives it a nice Hawaiian vibe. With a mix of different flavors, your taste buds will taste nothing but amazement.
