Mountain Mike’s Pizza
1472 North Vasco Road
Livermore, CA 94550
Did you know that 1 in 8 Americans eat pizza on any given day according to the USDA?
Yep, everybody loves pizza!
That’s a statement not many people will argue with. Well, today I felt like being one of those American’s and decided to give Mountain Mike’s Pizza a go.
There are three locations in Livermore:
- Mountain Mikes on First Street across from Valley Care Medical Center.
- Mountain Mikes Slices on First Street near the flag pole.
- and Mountain Mikes on North Vasco Road.
For #41 of The Great Livermore Restaurant Challenge, I stay in and ordered online from the Vasco location.
First let’s talk coupons. No matter where you buy a pizza, it pays to check for coupons first. Whether it’s on their website or in a coupon pack mailer, it’s almost impossible to find a pizza joint that doesn’t offer coupons. While Mountain Mikes has coupons you can print out, ordering online takes away the hassle. On their online menu, they have a “Specials/Coupons” section with prices already discounted for you. Just click the deals you want, choose your toppings, and place your order.
My deal is the Large Specialty for $18.99, and I chose the Snowy Alps (pepperoni, mushrooms, olives, sausage, green onions, and diced tomatoes on a creamy garlic white sauce). Tax and a delivery fee brings the total to $22.35, not including tip.
The order confirmation estimated a 45 minute delivery time and that’s exactly how long it took. While I love thin crust pizzas, I never order them for delivery. Regular or thick crust is a better choice since they hold in the heat well and travel better. Thankfully the Snowy Alps’ name didn’t accurately describe mine as it arrived hot and tasty.
I used to order from Pizza Guy’s quite a bit since they offer a decent pizza for a good price. I also used to order from Round Table, while I really like their pizzas, they are just overpriced for my budget. As this is my second or third Mountain Mikes experience, I think I have a new go-to pizza place. The Snowy Alps is a combination that I really like, and with their coupons it doesn’t break the bank.
Since Mountain Mikes has a few restaurants in Livermore, I still have two more to try during my Great Livermore Restaurant Challenge journey. When I get to those, I’ll be sure to eat in to get the full restaurant experience.
