Where to Find the Best Pizza in Mammoth Lakes

When it comes to great pizza, Mammoth Lakes truly delivers. After a full day of outdoor exertion and adventure in the stunning Eastern Sierra, there’s nothing more satisfying than a delicious pizza with great toppings, perhaps accompanied by a pitcher of a local brew (or root beer for the kids). Whether you’re looking for an easy way to feed a large group, a late-night bite or a fun spot for a date, here are some great restaurants where you can grab a slice. 

The Crowd-Pleasers

Giovanni’s is a Mammoth classic with plenty of seating as well as a sports bar and lounge with several big-screen televisions. “Gio’s” serves a full menu of pizzas, chicken wings, pastas and Italian entrées as well as a fantastic salad bar. Catering is also available. Don’t miss the BBQ Chicken Pizza with barbeque sauce, chicken, corn, roasted red peppers, red onions and cilantro. Or build your own pie, choosing from four different sauces (Italian, New York, Pesto and White), five crusts (regular, thin, whole wheat, whole wheat thin and gluten-free thin) and a whopping 30 toppings. Dine-in, carryout or delivery is available. 

Much more than just a pizza parlor, John’s Pizza Works also includes the Outlaw Saloon, a video arcade and the Two Scoops Ice Cream counter. There’s definitely something for everyone. You can’t go wrong with the House Special Pizza topped with pepperoni, sausage, mushrooms and olives. In addition to pizza, John’s serves crisp salads, chicken wings, sandwiches, pastas and a wide array of appetizers. Open late, John’s is one of the best places in town to grab a late-night drink and food before calling it a night. Carryout and evening delivery are also offered. 

Best Date Night Spot

Campo is located in the Village at Mammoth and offers authentic, wood-fired Italian pizza in addition to other delicious Italian specialties. Dine in the spacious, modern restaurant or grab a table on the large patio to take in the Village scene or play a game of bocce. The thin crust and fresh toppings straight from the traditional pizza oven won’t disappoint. For something unique, try the Bee Sting, topped with extra virgin olive oil, Grana Padano and mozzarella cheeses, basil, salami, red onion, serrano peppers and honey. Gluten-free pizza dough is also available. Check out the Thursday Date Night special for a great deal: $50 for a four-course dinner for two plus 50% off a bottle of wine. Campo is also family-friendly—kids eat free on Sundays from 5-8 p.m. with each purchase of an adult entrée. Insider Tip: Make reservations in advance, especially during holidays and weekends.

Best Take-and-Bake

If you’re not sure exactly when the crowd will arrive, Nik-n-Willie’s has you covered with the option to take-and-bake your pizza. They even give you a discount off their fully prepared pizzas. Nik-n-Willie’s also offers a dine-in area and a wide variety of pizzas, salads, and hot and cold sandwiches, as well as beer and wine. For something a bit decadent, try the Makin’ Bacon Pizza topped with a rich white sauce, cheddar and mozzarella, smoked bacon, mushrooms, red onions and garlic. Delivery is also available through Doorstep Deliveries.
