OC Weekly's Description
San Giovanni Pizza is a Anaheim pizzeria. But this is a halal place, so donât expect such Middle Eastern flatbreads as sphihahs and boreks. At this honest-to-goodness pizzeria, you can get any pizza offered by your local Italian restaurant, except with a better crust, tangier sauce and meat bought from local grocery stores, prepared in accordance with Muslim standards. Go ahead and order one with baconâitâs made with turkey. Ask for extra pepperoni or hamâitâs beef. And while the halal preparation is definitely important to Muslim eaters, itâs besides the point for the rest of us infidelsâSan Gio is just great pizza. The only hint that this place is different from any other pizzeria is the Arabic script on the marquee and the promise of three special pizzas: a chicken tandoori one that finds the henâs spiciness finely at home in a sea of cheese, a Turkish variety that replaces tomato sauce with juicy soujok, and a beef tikka pizza that would play well in Karachi.
