Pizza

Serving delicious wood-fired pizzas with handmade traditional, vegan, and gluten-free crusts, this family-owned eatery supports the surrounding community by sourcing ingredients from nearby farmers and hosting local art shows. Engfer is a popular hangout for USC Santa Cruz students and neighborhood folk alike, who frequent the cozy spot for its creative pies, convivial ambience, and robust selection of regional craft beers and wines (some of which you can purchase in full, as Engfer also doubles as a bottle shop). Pro tip: order at the counter and hop in line to get your turn on the ping pong table in the next room over.
