This is some text inside of a div block.

So you are looking for the best pizza in Palm Desert huh? Probably searched for something like “best pizza in Palm Desert, California” or “what’s the best best pizza in Palm Desert” right? What’s that? How did I know that? Well I mean this is on your phone or computer so this article will only show up for so many best pizzas that you searched in Google, so I know it had to be something like that. Either that, or you got here from another GiftYa post or article in which case thank you for reading two today! 

Well today, just like everyday we have exactly what you are looking for. This is a list of the best pizza in Palm Desert and where you can find them. I will also include links anytime one of these restaurants accept our super convenient virtual gift cards!

And just like with all the posts here on GiftYa I feel compelled to remind you that a GiftYa is a digital gift card that can be sent within seconds right from your phone. These gift cards can be used at a variety of locations but are particularly popular for restaurants. This is especially true if you are out traveling and don’t love to carry cash around with you. 

Instead you can just carry your gift cards right on your phone that you take with you everywhere already. You don’t even have to worry about keeping track of the gift cards and the balances because your phone does all of that for you. There really isn’t a more convenient option when it comes to buying gift cards and gifts for yourself or others.

1. Billy Q’s

Best Pizza Place In All Of Palm Desert

36901 Cook St | Palm Desert | billyqs.net

Billy Q’s come in at the top spot of my list of best pizza places for a couple reasons. First of all, they have a four and a half star rating with their customers with nearly 1000 reviews in. Which is just insanely consistent. You know they have to be doing something right to get a positive response time after time after time.

Another big reason that Billy Q’s comes in at the top of my list because while they offer the best pizza in all of Palm Desert, they also offer plenty of pasta, sandwich, and salad options. And when it comes to putting together a list that consists of just the best pizza places in a city, it’s hard to get much menu diversity in the list. But Billy Q’s lets me start the list off with a pizza place that also provides plenty of other options in case you have a picky eater in your party which is kind of a win win for me. 

“Small place but busy as all heck!  The beer is cold and on draft.  The pizza is hot and tasty and their salads do not leave you hungry. A staple for me and the family.” - Yelp Review 

2. Norman’s Italian Kitchen of Rancho Mirage

Norman’s Italian Kitchen of Rancho Mirage makes it to number two on my list of great pizza places in Palm Desert for two reasons really. First of all, they have a very high customer rating with hundreds of reviews left. And on top of that, much like Billy Q’s, they aren’t just a pizza place. Now they certainly have great pizza, some of the best in all of Palm Desert, but that’s not the only incredible option on their menu. They have plenty of classic Italian dishes and pastas. As well as plenty of sandwiches and desserts. And in my opinion, nothing makes a great pizza better than having a great salad or pasta on the side with it, and that is exactly what you and your dining party can do at Norman’s Italian Kitchen!

“Really impressed with the pizza!  So good and reminded me of NYC pizza. Loved it and would order from here again!” - Yelp Review 

3. Bill’s Pizza

A Pizza Place In Palm Desert That Goes the Extra Mile

73196 CA-111 | Palm Desert | billspizzapalmdesert.com

There’s a lot of great pizza places on the list today. But Bill’s Pizza is the only one that takes making their pizza so seriously that they actually import all the flour used in their dough from Italy itself. That means that they pay to have flour shipped all the way across the Atlantic Ocean just for the sake of authenticity. 

Now I can’t say how much the flour makes a difference on its own, I mean all flour is pretty bland when you think about it, but the imported flour, the extra virgin olive oil, and the homemade sausage all come together to give you a pizza that is pretty out of this world. So if what you are looking for is the absolute best slice of pizza you can find in all of Palm Desert then be sure to give Bill’s Pizza a try. Everybody else seems to be very impressed with them.

“Awesome food and service! Me and the BF ordered the Elton John and Christina Rocker (?) individual pizzas and they were delicious and plentiful. Our waiter was great too. All the servers were nice.” - Yelp Review 

4. Piero’s PizzaVino

An Incredible Pizza Place In Palm Desert That Is Great for Lunch, Dinner, and Happy Hour

Piero’s PizzaVino makes it onto the list for a few reasons. Obviously they have a high rating with their customers, but on top of that they also offer authentic Neapolitan style pizza, pasta, and other Italian cuisines. Piero’s isn’t necessarily the fanciest place on the list, but everybody seems to really enjoy their food. 

And what’s not to enjoy about an authentic Neapolitan style pizza? I mean it’s not super easy to get a ton of different menu options when every place I’m writing about is a pizza place, so it’s nice for me that there is somewhere that is so good, that also just so happens to serve a unique and delicious style of pizza that actually is pretty different from the standard pizza you get at most pizza places.

“Our 2nd time here and it was just as good as the first time. Arturo our server enhanced the experience by far. The pizza, flatbread and truffle fries are the way to go. Real neapolitan pizza.” - Yelp Review 

5. Sabatino’s Pizza Pasta and Wings

A Great Pizza Place With Great Prices In Palm Desert

Sabatino’s Pizza Pasta and Wings makes it on the ist for their great pizza obviously. But it’s hard to discount the fact that they also have excellent wings and pasta. But on top of that, they give you pizza made with fresh quality ingredients. And on top of that, they have been around since 2004. So you know they’re at least good enough to withstand a couple of recessions. And if their business can survive, and thrive, through all of those monumental down turns, you know they have to be doing something right. 

Supposedly, one in three restaurants aren’t able to keep the doors open during their first year. So you can imagine how good a place must be to be open for nearly two decades and survive multiple recessions on top of that. It takes a really special place to become a cornerstone of a community over time the way Sabatino’s has.

“Love their pizza , it's so good. The staff here goes above and beyond had family from out of town, and they really liked this place. Will definitely be going back soon.” - Yelp Review 

6. Stuft Pizza Bar & Grill

Great Pizza Place In Palm Desert That Also Features A Bar!

If you are looking to go out on a date night and get a slice of pizza with your significant other, or you want to go out and have a fun dinner with a group of friends, then Stuft Pizza Bar & Grill is gonna be a great spot for you. Unlike a lot of the other pizza places on the list today Stuft features a full bar. So not only can you get a hot fresh pizza, you can also order plenty of beers and cocktails to wash it down. 

And I don’t know about you, but to me, that sounds like a pretty nice Friday night. And that is a big reason Stuft makes it onto the list. It’s not just that they have some of the best pizza in Palm Desert, they also serve that pizza up in a unique atmosphere and environment that really makes them stand out among pizza places in Palm Desert in my opinion.

“This is hands down one of the best pizza places around.  

The crust is thin and crispy, cheese is nice and gooey and the sauce is really delicious.” - Yelp Review 

7. Papa John’s

A Pizza Chain That Is Popular All Across the Country

Papa John’s isn’t quite the same as the earlier entries on the list today. Unlike those places that serve local small business pizza, Papa John’s is a chain of pizza restaurants that really promises to deliver great pizza at fast food speeds. When I personally am on the road and my options for pizza are Papa John’s, Domino’s, or Pizza Hut, I will end up going with Papa John’s every time. 

“Don't usually eat fast type pizza, would usually prefer a sit down pizza spot, but Papa John's was great.” - Yelp Review

8. Domino’s

Another Popular Pizza Chain You Can FInd In Palm Desert

Domino’s is a pizza chain that is pretty popular all across America in my experience. I can’t deny that Domino’s is wildly popular all across the country as a fast food version of pizza. So if you want pizza and are in a hurry, Domino’s can be just the thing when you are craving a slice and need it fast.

“I love this place when I want a pizza and don't have a lot  of time to waste. They are so quick and make a great pizza. They even have many prepaid so at times you can get it immediately

I love that about this place.” - Yelp Review

And that’s all I have for you today! That is a list of some of the best pizza places you can find all around the Palm Desert area. It’s not super easy to get a lot of menu diversity on a list of best pizza places. I mean, they are all going to serve pizza. But I think I did a fair job at getting you some menu variety in the list today. 

And luckily for me, a lot of the best pizza places in Palm Desert also happen to serve plenty of other fantastic dishes. So I hope you found what you were looking for on this list today.
