the bay area's best pizza


Pizza and I have had such a great relationship for many many years now, and we're still going strong. I absolutely love pizza. I think it's the one meal that I wouldn't get sick of eating ever. Of course all the best foods the worst for you!!

San Francisco has some really good pizza spots that I'd love to share with all of you! Here are the city's 10 best pizza spots in my opinion, in no particular order:

1. ZA PIZZA

Russian Hill

Za is dangerously a couple blocks from my apartment and easily my go-to quick pizza by the slice spot. The "Scaliano" is my favorite pizza there. If you're a meat lover, you won't regret choosing it. The pizza is thin crust, New York style at Za. They deliver too!

2. GOLDEN BOY

North Beach

Golden Boy was a few blocks from my old spot in North Beach. The pizza here is Sicilian style, made on large sheets of fococcia bread. It's a tiny little spot, so you'll likely want to take the pizza slices to Washington Square park or go eat at home instead of eating there. The pizza at Golden Boy is a-m-a-z-i-n-g. If you like seafood, try the garlic and clam pizza, but defintiely don't go kissing anyone for a good few days! BEWARE: CA$H ONLY (but there's a WF and BofA right around the corner).

3. TONY'S SLICE HOUSE and TONY'S NAPOLETANA

North Beach & SOMA

Tony's Slice House serves pizza by the slice (or pies) New York style. It's quick and delicious, with locations in both SOMA and North Beach (right around the corner from Golden Boy if you prefer thin sliced pizza). Don't even bother asking for ranch if you're a dipping fan... they always turn you down.

The sit-down, sister restaurant to Tony's Slice House is called Pizza Napoletana. The pizza here is even more amazing than the Slice House's, but you'll likely have to wait in a SUPER long line, as it's one of the most famous restaurants in San Francisco and always filled with tourists who read about it online. You're able to give your number to the hostess though, and they'll text you when your table is ready, so you can go wander around and stop in some of the Grant Street boutiques or hang out at Washington Square Park while you're waiting. Insider tip: you can also order the pizza for takeout to avoid the line and chow down on your own couch!

4. GIOIA PIZZERIA

Russian Hill

This Russian Hill staple has been on a few of my favorite food lists. It's often overlooked, but one of my favorite restaurants -- reasonably priced with awesome, reclaimed wood interior decor. The pizza here is won
