They originally wanted to name the Sutter Creek location Gold Dust but at the last minute changed their minds. In 2015 they open their third store in Oakdale and named it Gold Dust Pizza. They themed it to match their Sutter Creek location. After much debate they decided to change the name in Sutter Creek to Gold Dust Pizza as well.
