3 best thin crust pizza joints in SF
I've got two days in the city and want to hit 3 or 4 of your best pizza joints to compare to NYC where should I go??? In NYC I'd be saying Franny's John's or 3 boots --what do you have on your list for SF's best?????
I LOVE John's pizza and crave it often.
Alas, you won't find anything near to that here. BUT I personally think Arinell's on Valencia at 16th comes sorta close.
Tommaso's for old-school West Coast wood-oven pies. Oldest pizzeria west of the Mississippi. I recommend the sausage and mushroom.
Pauline's for an only-in-San Francisco local style.
Pizzeria Delfina for a loose SF take on Neapolitan.
Maybe not worth a trip, but if you're in North Beach, get a slice of the porcini at L'Osteria del Forno.
A16 makes arguably the best pie in SF but I think it's similar to Una Pizza Napoletana in NY.
Arinell's is slices a la Ray's at 6th and 11th, basically an imitation of NY junk food for nostalgic expatriates. No reason to waste time on that, you can get as good or better at a hundred places at home.
I wouldn't waste my calories...nothing here is the same..."Amici's" is the closest (the New Yorker Pie) they don't have to be asked to 'scorch' the crust..!
You should really try the best of what San Francisco has to offer (and it isn't New York Style Pizza)
I like Patsy's, in Manhattan, Totonno;s in Coney Island, and DiFara's in Brooklyn..John's is good, but I don't know Franny's or 3 Boots...where are they located?...I'll be 'home' visiting family in May..
I really like the thin-crust pizza at Pomodoro Pizza, 240 Kearny Street, SF. It is mostly a lunch place that sells pizza by the slice. I would certainly not claim it compares favorably with the best of NYC, but it stacks up pretty well with what is to be found in SF.
Pomodoro Pizza is not to be confused with Pasta Pomodoro, a pretty good local chain of Italian restaurants that do not serve pizza.
