Few things are as satisfying as finding an awesome pizzeria. You had your first child? Congrats. Graduated from college magna cum laude? Go you! However, upon biting into a slice of cheesy deliciousness these previously great things pale in comparison- you’ve found some awesome pizza.
In San Francisco, we sure do love us some pizza. Since the Green Tortoise is located in North Beach, the Italian section of SF, one would assume that pizza is limited to our little area right? Wrong! Pizza can be found in all districts of our fair city, and in this extremely wordy blog, I’ll highlight some of the GT staff’s favorite pizza haunts!
Little Star Pizza
846 Divisadero Street 400 Valencia Street
(415) 441-1118 415-551-7827
This SF favorite has two sections to their menu: Deep dish and thin crust. If you haven’t eaten your week’s worth of calories after your pizza, they sell homemade cheesecake and gelato.
2415 19th Avenue (between Taraval Street & Ulloa Street)
Kind of a ways from the GT, but it’s open til 3am, serves pasta, salad and sandwiches, and has slices for under $3!
Tommaso Ristorante Italiano
1042 Kearny St (between Nottingham Pl & Pacific Ave)
Literally right across the street, this restaurant has some of the best pizza in the SF Bay area. Feel free to eat in the restaurant, or order take-out. Word of warning: Depending on what you order, the pizza can be pretty pricey.
Golden Boy Pizza
542 Green Street (between Bannam Pl & Jasper Pl)
San Francisco, CA 94133
If you’re staying at the GT, there is no excuse to ignore this pizzeria. Cheap, close and delicious, Golden Boy is open until 2am, so after a night of bar-hopping, go grab a slice.
Goat Hill Pizzeria
300 Connecticut at 18th Street
Hands down one of the most creative menu options in the city, and although this place is pretty far away, on Monday nights they have all-you-can-eat pizza and salad for $10.95. Also, they will make any pizza with soy cheese if you’re lactose intolerant or just an annoying vegan (like myself).
3274 21st St (between Valencia St & Mission St)
If you find yourself wandering the Mission and find yourself craving a deep dish, find your way over to Serrano’s. Massive slices, accepts credit cards, and open until 1am… You’re welcome!
I hope this blog wasn’t too cheesy for you (ha ha ha), and feel free to ask us friendly front-deskers where our personal favorite pizzeria is!
