About

The Art of the Craft

Consider us your neighborhood pizza parlor with a gourmet twist. Unlike many Visalia pizza parlors, we focus on quality over quantity. At The Planing Mill Artisan Pizzeria, we believe in making great food at affordable prices, all in a fun, casual atmosphere.

What’s in a Name?

A lot of people see our name and spend the next few seconds trying to say it. Let us help. It’s pronounced “PLAIN-ing” Mill, though there’s certainly nothing “plain” about us!

So why the name? Our building is part of the original Visalia Planing Mill. Founded in 1851, the mill crafted specialty wood products for generations of Visalians. In fact, many older homes and businesses in town have doors and cabinets that were hand-crafted right here on our property. In honor of this legacy, and as a reflection of our commitment to artisanship, the name fit perfectly.
