The Westo pizza was a vegetarian's dream: pesto based with spinach, carmelized onions, roasted potatoes, garlic and several cheeses. My husband also enjoyed his Sicilian tomato based pizza with a thicker crust. Salads were also excellent and interesting! Drinks are all canned. They have moved...and are no longer in Joshua Tree- now in Yucca Valley. Look for the big white tent. Lots of outdoor seating. Yucca Valley must be an acquired taste- it was sort of windy and desolate feeling the day we were there. An unusual place but I'd go out of my way to eat here again. You place your order at the inside counter and the food is brought out to you.More

Possibly the worst pizza I have ever eaten. Crust is like cardboard and even a search team would have trouble finding the sauce. Maybe I ordered the wrong thing. I ordered the Highway 62. Starving as I was, I could not even finish 2 slices....The outer crust was inedible.More

This looked promising, had great reviews, but was a real letdown. Currently with Covid, it's take-away only. I tried calling in my order, only to get a message that they were 'too busy with other phone orders' and I should call back later. Really? At...4.30pm on a Monday? I drove there, and put in an order--never heard the phone ring once and nobody else was placing an order. I thought the pizza was really expensive. $23 for a large Buffalo Soldier. When I got back to my place, the pizza was much smaller than the large box. The toppings were well away from the crust. Bianca or Buffalo sauce? Not that I could tell. Pizza was dreadfully dry. Cheese, yes. A few small bits of chicken. Crust was good--thin, crispy and chewy. But for what I paid I didn't want a baked crust only 1/2 of which had a few dry toppings. Unfortunate. I wouldn't go back nor recommend this to anybody else.More

Best New York style pizza I have ever had point blank, period. Ordering was a little chaotic but honestly I would have ran through burning rings of fire for that pizza.

We had a very large and enjoyable pizza here. You can sit outside on picnic benches or there are a few indoor tables.

We were a little tired and ripe after a hike so we ordered pizza for take out. We ordered a simple pizza with a couple vegetables - it was Friday. We walked in the door at 20 minutes and they were just then taking out...our pizza, as promised - no waiting. The counter gal offered condiments - no asking on our part. But the best part was yet to come. A thin crust pie all covered with cheese but one that allowed the taste of the individual toppings. Yes we will be back.More

It seems to be the go to place for hikers, climbers and backpackers coming out of Joshua Tree NP. Can be crowded around park closing time. The pizzas are good and unusual. I had Life with garlic, which was excellent.

We enjoyed pizza here twice and we were in town only 4 days. Nice variety and good crust. Small seating area so plan to take out or you might need to wait. Modest selection of beer, but there were 2 good IPA's when we were...there.More

Best Pizza in the High Desert, hands down! Lits of options, including Vegan and Gluten free. Wish they would open a franchise in Redding...

It's been about 6 months since we were there, at that time, I believe they did offer a gluten free pizza. You might try their website for an up to date answer to your question.
