Deep dish pizza is not for everyone. Some object to calling it pizza at all - while others are mortally offended by the suggestion of its illegitimacy. We’ll let New Yorkers and Chicagoans duke that out, and just say that Little Star does our favorite deep dish in the city (particularly the “Little Star” pie, with spinach and ricotta). Apart from being delicious, it also stands up very well to being put in a box and transported via Scoot/car/hoverboard. They do have thin-crust pizza too, but we’d advise you to go big.

The Pizza Place on Noriega
Pizza Place, in the Outer Sunset, reminds us of the pizza of our ’90s suburban childhood in the best way possible. There’s a good vegan pie, too.
Presidio Pizza Company
For pizza by the slice that's open late, there's Presidio Pizza in Pacific Heights.
Montesacro, in SOMA, does delicious oval-shaped “pinsas.” We recommend the ’njuda pinsa, the margherita, and the maranella.
