Pizza is the perfect food. It is easy to order over the phone. Easy to pick up. Easy to deliver. Pizza does not require utensils and thus saves time on cleaning and dishwashing. Though often greasy, it provides us with all 4 major food groups (keeping in mind tomatoes are a fruit). Kids love pizza. Pizza can be eaten for breakfast, lunch, snacktime and dinner and does not require heating (at least in my house). And of course, pizza makes a very good accompaniment to beer. What's not to love about pizza? Here is an alphabetical list of pizza places in the Conejo Valley and neighboring areas.
