If you’re looking for the best pizza in San Francisco, head to Tony’s Pizza Napoletana. It’s award-winning and well-loved by locals. You’ll often find a queue of people trying to get a table. They’re so keen to eat at Tony’s that they’ll even settle for a little wedge of the bar space and a stool. Tony’s is home of 11 time World Pizza Champion Tony Gemignani, so it’s definitely worth the wait.
Best Pizza in San Francisco
A margherita is often considered a boring choice. However, at Tony’s it’s a wise one. Their margherita is limited to just 73 per day. The recipe earned it the title of World Pizza Cup Winner, of Naples, Italy.
The Cal Italia (asiago, mozzarella, gorgonzola, Croatian sweet fig preserve, prosciutto di parma, parmiagiano and balsamic reduction) holds the title of ‘Gold Medal Winner Food Network Pizza Champions Challenge’.
There are gluten-free pizzas, coal fired ones, Detroit style pizzas, St. Lois style ones…basically they’ve thought of everything and you’ll have a hard time in deciding which one to go for. Luckily you’ll have some fresh bread to nibble on whilst you consider your options.
This is the Honey Pie; local North Beach honey, calabrese peppers, scallions (or spring onions as we call them here in the UK), mozzarella, piave cheese, fried caramelized onions and serrano peppers. It’s a warm, doughy plate of deliciousness.
This bad boy is the Hang Ten; Korean BBQ short ribs, ten jang, scallions, mozzarella, house pickled peppers and carrots. Somehow carrots on a pizza works (well, it does at Tony’s).
You’ll find Tony’s at North Beach, which is an amazing part of the city. It’s full of cute and quirky boutiques, like the gourmet popcorn store. Pop in Tony’s to request a table then use your waiting time to have a stroll in the neighbourhood.
