Top pizza choices in Sunnyvale for takeout and dining in

A lot goes into choosing a pizza -- even beyond the question of toppings. But whether you go for takeout or sit-down, thick crust or thin, sauced or bare, you want something delicious -- particularly on National Pizza Day, Feb. 9.

Fortunately, Sunnyvale boasts a number of quality pizza shops to satisfy your craving for a slice or a pie.

Hoodline crunched the numbers to find the top pizza outlets, using both Yelp data and our own blend of spices to produce a ranked list of the best places to venture -- or to call -- on National Pizza Day.

1. A Slice Of New York

Topping the list is A Slice of New York. Located at 1253 W. El Camino Real in Washington, this slice-based spot is the highest-rated pizzeria in Sunnyvale, boasting 4.5 stars out of 978 reviews on Yelp. It also offers Italian desserts like cannoli.

However, all good things come with a downside: the business doesn't work with any food delivery services, and prospective customers should expect a wait during peak lunch and dinner hours.

2. Tasty Subs & Pizza

Next up is East Murphy's Tasty Subs & Pizza, situated at 528 Lawrence Expy. With four stars out of 757 reviews on Yelp, the sports bar, which offers sandwiches, pizza and more, has proven to be a local favorite. It offers both takeout and delivery (for a fee).

3. Giovanni's Pizzeria
