You don’t have to be a Chicago-style pizza expert to know that Zachary’s is great. This East Bay institution has been making Chicago-inspired pies (it’s actually stuffed, not deep dish) with a golden, buttery crust, and perfectly chunky tomato sauce since 1983. We get the Zachary’s Special with Italian sausage, green peppers, onion, and mozzarella, or the spinach and mushroom with a side of caesar. And if you’re averse to waiting, or are somehow immune to the charm of all the pizza-inspired artwork that fills nearly every inch of the walls, you can order your deep dish, thin-crust, or half-baked pizza to go.

Cheese Board Pizza

Cheese Board Pizza in Berkeley does only one type of pizza every day. It tends to be kind of unusual, but it’s always worth the long wait.
