Restaurant review: Pacific Coast Pizza

One of the foods I miss the most while living a balanced-carb lifestyle is pizza. Eating pizza with whole-wheat crust alleviates some of the guilt, but until Pacific Coast Pizza opened up a couple years ago, there was no place in Wichita that served it.

Happily, that has been remedied. In addition to a traditional white crust, they also offer a "rosemary wheat" crust. I haven't asked for specific nutrition info, so I'm not sure it's 100% whole wheat, but it looks and tastes like it, and that's enough for my conscience, once in a while!

They offer a wide variety of pizzas, from classic to pesto-based to vegetarian to "Pacific Coast Style." There's also the "build your own" option. (Find the menu here.) My favorite is the San Andreas: rosemary wheat crust topped with red sauce, low-fat mozzarella, roasted chicken, red onion, mushroom, roasted red pepper and pineapple.


Their strength is definitely their pizza. I haven't tried any of the pasta, sandwiches or wraps, but pass up the salads. The "Caesar" is just a normal salad with what tastes like bottled Italian dressing, with some Parmesan sprinkled on top. Don't expect much from the atmosphere: what little decor there is consists of beer brand signs. There is a patio, so on those precious few days when Kansas weather makes sitting outdoors comfortable, that's a nice option.

It's located in Sienna Plaza, on the northwest corner of 37th Street North and Rock Road, and parking is never a problem.
