North Beach Pizza Challenge

Ok so my boyfriend and I just moved here from New York 2 months ago and we are REALLY missing that New York pizza. Basically we are pizza snobs and haven't really found anything that has satisfied our need. We've heard that North Beach has pretty decent pizza and want to put it to the test. So we want to have the First Annual North Beach Pizza Challenge! I will (eventually) map out a bunch of pizza restaurants and we can have teams of three of four people that will share one slice of pizza (we don't want to fill up at the first restaurant) and have a glass of beer or wine and then rate the pizza we had. Lets put North Beach pizza to the test! What restaurant will come out on top and be crowned the North Beach Pizza Challenge WINNER?

    Great! Jillian did a great job with the organization of the meet up. But... late-comers changed the dynamics of the whole event.

    Can I suggest that someone bring a pizza cutter or can we ask the places to cut them in smaller pieces? I know I want to try them all!

    Hi Jillian- I am from new York as well, and my office did a series of taste tests to find the best NY style pizza in SF when we relocated out here. Tony's in North Beach won. Za in Russian Hill is good too, just in case you want some other spots to check out
