In search of pizza dough on a Monday in San Francisco. Ideas?

I'm hoping to buy some pre-made pizza dough tonight for pizzas at home. Trader Joe's is the back-up plan, but I'm wondering if anyone has suggestions for places that sell their dough, hopefully in the Duboce/Mission/SOMA/downtown SF area.

Little Star on Valencia is closed on Mondays, so that's out.

Pizzeria Delfina doesn't open till 5:30, but I can't wait till then to find out, and they are not answering their phone yet today. Has anyone done this here?

Lucca Ravioli doesn't sell their dough.

Any other suggestions? It's not too big a deal, since Trader Joe's dough isn't bad, but something different would be nice too.

      Just checked their website, they are also closed on Monday. I guess Monday is not a good pizza night in SF.

      Are there any places downtown-ish (preferably muni accessible, so close to Market?). Anywhere in Ferry Building?

    2. I'll bet Bi-Rite has some high-end pizza dough.

        I wouldn't bet on it--they make their "pizzas" from Acme focaccia.

          Recognize this comment was from five years ago, but Bi-Rite does now carry pizza dough in the same case where you find the fresh pasta. Have never tried it though. They also carry homemade pie dough, which seems even harder to source.

            Homemade pie dough?! How incredibly awesome!

      2. I understand lots of pizzerias will sell some of their dough. I know that Giorgio's in the inner Richmond (on Clement) does.

          I think you're right...most pizzerias will. I called Go Getter's and they said they would, but at my lunch break today I decided to just go to Trader Joe's instead (at least this time). I don't particularly like the crust at Go Getters, and the price they quoted me was more than TJ, so I opted against it.

          If I try this in the future (or not on Monday) I'll try other places like Pauline's, Little Star or Delfina.

        2. I've used naan dough from Indian restaurants before and it comes out good as long as you roll it out pretty thin.

          1. I don't know how it works in SF but if it helps, here in NYC, many bakeries
            sell great pizza dough.
