Little Star Pizza
Just because San Francisco isn’t exactly cranking out an abundance of deep dish pizzas doesn’t mean the style can’t thrive in the city. Thankfully, we have spots like Little Star in the Mission. The Chicago-style pies are meaty and filled with tangy tomato sauce. But what keeps us coming back is the buttery cornmeal crust you can easily cut into. Go for the classic with sausage and mushrooms, or the Little Star with ricotta and feta and call it a night, or build your own. These are some of the heartier pies in town. This spot also does thin-crust (with cornmeal), like a decent spicy calabrese sausage and Italian combo, but we'd advise you to go big.
