What Makes Woodstock’s Pizza SLO’s Favorite Pizza?

College kids love pizza and Woodstock’s Pizza is no exception. Woodstock’s Pizza has been voted Cal Poly’s favorite Pizza by Mustang News since 2005 and titled Best Pizza by SLO Times for the past 30 years. The company is currently ranked #3 among independent pizzerias nationwide. Woodstock’s is located in downtown San Luis Obispo at 1000 Higuera Street and has been a local favorite since it opened in 1980. What is it about Woodstock’s that keeps college kids coming back year after year? It must be their motto, “Legendary Taste MEETS EPIC PARTY”. Woodstock’s creates a fun, welcoming atmosphere for college students to come hang out and enjoy quality pizza using some of the best local ingredients. Whether you are planning a celebration, club meeting, fundraiser, or just want to enjoy some pizza, Woodstock’s has you covered.

In 1977, Chuck Woodstock opened the first Woodstock’s near Oregon State. His goal was to create a fun, student-oriented pizzeria that dished up amazing pies using his grandmother’s marinara recipe. Chuck’s original recipe includes fresh, hand-tossed dough with a unique folded-over crust with sauce inside. He insisted on putting more toppings on the pizza than any of his competitors, so you get a taste of every topping in each bite.

Jeff and Laura Ambrose are the sole owners of Woodstock’s Pizza today. They take pride on continuing Chuck’s legacy by using his original recipe and work hard to create a fun, community-oriented pizzeria. Woodstock’s Pizza uses the highest quality local ingredients and prepares their fresh dough daily They have an employee stock program in place, as they encourage long-term investment into their company & product. Having been around for 37 years, they have inevitably been able to provide the Ultimate Pizza Experience time & time again. They have become integral to the Cal Poly and SLO Community, by working with all Departments, Corporate Clients, Non-profit Organizations, students, local sports, etc.
