Are there any places in San Francisco that serve pizza with a whole wheat crust?

    I don't know of any pizzzerias that serve whole wheat crusts, but you can get a whole wheat dough premade at Trader Joe's...not so bad, either

      Actually, I think its pretty damn good. And at $1.09 for a handful its a great deal. Makes for same great Barbecue or Chipotle Chicken Pizza!

        I regularly get the Californian pizza at Patxi's (albeit in Palo Alto). It consists of spinach, red onions, and low fat cheese on a whole wheat crust. It's very, very good.

        I hate to mention a chain, but CPK does offer whole wheat crusts for their pizzas.

          Willow Street (with locations in the South Bay and San Rafael (and an outpost at SFO) offers a whole wheat crust option. I tried their chicken sausage gorgonzola pizza last night (with regular, not whole wheat crust), and it was pretty good.

              I didn't know Willow St Pizza was also in San Rafael and at SFO. I like this place, very CA style pizza. If you order the ww crust, be aware it's not 100% ww (at least it didn't taste so to me). I still enjoy it though. Here's a photo of the Artichoke & Feta pizza with ww crust (note the pale color):

              I've also liked their 3 Sausage & 3 Mushroom, and the thin crust mediterranean (only avail in white crust). The Thai Chicken is also ok in a "this isn't really pizza but it's tasty" kind of way but a tad too sweet.

                Their margherita thin crust pizza was awful - the taste was off and there was way too much cheese (it's as though they were overcompensating since we didn't have normal toppings), but as I mentioned my chicken sausage apple gorgonzola pizza (which admittedly I got without the gorg) was quite good with a normal amount of cheese.

                I was pleasantly surprised by their bruschetta. I thought it was a mistake to order it at the end of November, but the tomatoes were really red, perfectly ripe and fresh tasting. The boyfriend said the tomato/garlic/olive oil/basil mixture was actually better than Park Chow's.
