786 Degrees, a pizzeria in Sun Valley, was named California's best restaurant by Yelp.

A Sun Valley pizzeria was named the best California restaurant by Yelp.

786 Degrees is located in a rather nondescript location in Sun Valley, but customers will tell you the pizzas are anything but ordinary.

"It has a very unique flavor, but it's delicious. I love it. It's awesome," Lugdy Cueva of West Covina said.

The workers at 786 Degrees said the secret is all in the ingredients and their oven.

The oven is made of Mount Vesuvius lava rock and olive wood is used to cook the pizzas. There's no gas and the temperature burns at 786 degrees.

"That's a huge honor for a small humble business like us. I guess it's the turn of hard work and being what we do and trying to create a little magic," Ali Haider of 786 Degrees said. "We literally import all the way from Naples, Italy, from the Pompeii region, the cheese, even the flour comes all the way from there."
