Welcome to Upper Crust Pizza & Pasta where we specialize in Authentic Sicilian Square Pizza and traditional Italian cuisine! Our family-owned pizza restaurant keeps the old-world tradition alive by using locally sourced products and ingredients along with the same time-honored family recipes. Unlike your average pizza place, we are proud to take the extra time and effort to operate the Sicilian way. We believe that authentic food, traditional recipes, and attention to detail are what make our pizza shop The Upper Crust.

For two generations in Santa Cruz, our family and dedicated team have been devoted to serving our loyal following from Santa Cruz to Sicily, and everywhere in between. We cherish the friendships we have developed with our customers and think of you as our extended family. Whether you're dining in, ordering take out, or getting pizza for delivery, we look forward to showing you why Upper Crust Pizza & Pasta has been a local favorite for over four decades!
