When it comes to pizza, everyone has a different taste. Some people like thin crust pizza. On the other hand, some people like thick crust pizza such as traditional pan pizza and deep-dish pizza.

For me, it doesn't matter whether it's a thick or thin crust as long as it tastes good. Because I believe that each style of pizza has its own unique touch and I enjoy eating different types of it.

It’s very difficult to say what makes a perfect pizza, simply because there are so many different variations of the simple mozzarella and bread combinations. But a pizza has to have these quality ingredients: olive oil, tomato, and mozzarella. The rest of the toppings totally depends on one's taste.

Nowadays, every place around us makes a pizza. However, for a pizza lover like me, it is very important to find a place that makes good pizza.

For all of these reasons, this wasn’t an easy list to make for me. However, here are the three best pizza places in San Francisco, based on pizza lovers' recommendations.

3. Pizza Squared
Pizza Squared
With our San Francisco roots, we set out to make an elevated pizzeria that celebrates Sicilian & Detroit style pizza done with a Bay Area twist. - Pizza Squared

Recommendations based on customer reviews:

  • There has definitely been a rise in favor of this style of pizza and there aren't many storefronts offering squared pizza in San Francisco.
  • Detroit style is loaded with tiny pepperonis which had a nice crunch to them.
  • The Sicilian style is great too. Pesto was subtle but good.

Price: On average, it's $45 - 50 for two people.

Location: 885 Brannan St. San Francisco, CA 94103
