Mama’s Boy

Mama’s Boy is making some of Oakland’s best new slices. And that’s saying something, given that great new pizza joints have popped up like wild rabbits all over the East Bay. The two-story spot (from the people behind Oakland and San Francisco Athletic Club) feels like it’s been around for years, and the combination of family photos, red stools, and Pac-Man give this place a nostalgic touch. This Uptown slice shop nails the New York-style, including a bubbly crust that’s sturdy enough to hold the toppings. Be sure to get the pepperoni slice, but don’t overlook the behemoth heros on pillowy rolls.
