Pizza, like an uncle's joke, can contain cheesy inconsistencies, take a while to deliver, and defuse awkwardness after the dog announces she's joining the Insane Clown Posse. Savor the saving grace of pizza with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of pizza, drinks, and more at Little Star Pizza's newest and largest location in Albany on Solano Avenue. For six straight years, SF Weekly readers have crowned Little Star one of the city's best pizza spots, recognizing its outstanding menu of thin crust and Chicago-style deep-dish pies. The Little Star, a spinach-ricotta-feta concoction layered onto a cornmeal deep-dish crust ($18), was named one of 7x7's "100 Things to Try Before You Die", edging out snake venom antidote and licking your own elbow. Stomachs in search of further stuffing can approach saturation with a delectable slice of house-made cheesecake ($6) or gelato ($5).
Little Star Pizza has been featured in the press including mentions from Frommer's, the San Francisco Bay Guardian, San Francisco Chronicle, and SF Weekly which all say the pie is worth the wait; Yelpers give it a four-star average:
- But if there's pizza worth a two-hour wait, this is it. – Gabriel Roth, San Francisco Bay Guardian
- this joint is cranking out the best pizza in town. You're likely to have to wait for a seat at one of the well-spaced tables and you may have to strain to chat over the music and dining din, but there's little I wouldn't endure for one of Little Star's deep dish cornmeal-crust pizzas – Frommer's
