The Best Pizza in North Beach San Francisco
A margherita is often considered a boring choice. However, at Tony’s San Francisco 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 and St. Lois style ones…basically they’ve thought of everything. You’ll have a hard time in deciding which one to go for.
I recommend the Honey Pie, which is local North Beach honey, calabrese peppers, spring onions, mozzarella, piave cheese, fried caramelized onions and serrano peppers. It’s a warm, doughy plate of deliciousness.
Jay recommends this bad boy; the Hang Ten. It’s smothered in Korean BBQ short ribs, ten jang, scallions, mozzarella, house pickled peppers and carrots. And yeah, somehow carrots on a pizza works (well, it does at Tony’s).
