Patxi's Chicago Pizza is a Best Pizza of the Bay Area establishment that caters to indulgent pizza partiers and intimate diners alike. Printed on resilient pizza dough, Patxi's menu features a build-your-own arsenal of toppings, such as feta cheese, green bell peppers, Italian sausage, kalamata olives, sundried tomatoes, salami, zucchini, soy cheese, and much more, available atop Chicago–style crusts ($14.45 for a 10" before toppings) and thin crusts ($9.95 for a 10" before toppings).
Every aspect of the pies at Magoo?s Pizza are customizable, from the size to the toppings to the sauce at their base. Guests first select from four sizes of crust and then choose from a handful of sauces that each offer distinct flavors, such as picante, barbecue, and pesto. Toppings range from classic pepperoni and mushrooms to beef steak and Louisiana-style hot sausage. Chefs also layer meat and mozzarella cheese to create lasagna and pile salami and ham onto the baked hero sub. Guests can have meals delivered right to their house via online or phone orders as opposed to singing telegrams.
Since 1988, the chefs at City Pizza have bedecked dough disks with toppings such as feta cheese, italian salami, zucchini, and gyro meat. They add a touch of flair to the crust by sprinkling it with sesame seeds, creating tasty results as tiny as an 8-inch hawaiian pizza or as big as the 26-inch pesto pie that's often used to bring peace to hordes of warring foodies. Wings, subs, and calzones bring the pizza-heavy menu to a delicious conclusion.
The chefs at Jake’s specialize in whipping up circular comestibles, dishing out pizzas with more than 20 toppings in addition to scrumptious specialty pies and a sizeable selection of burgers, sandwiches, and wings. Cozy up in a booth with a signature pizza ($15.25 for a small), such as the barbecue chicken, which plunders the garden for ripe pineapple and onion before wedding them to juicy marinated chicken breast on an altar of smoked provolone. The create-your-own-pizza menu rounds up the usual suspects including pepperoni, mushrooms, and anchovies and puts them in a lineup alongside their more exotic counterparts such as louisiana hot sausage, artichoke hearts, and chives ($12.05+ for a small). Burgers ($5.65), quesadillas ($4.50), and a chicken philly with fries ($8) clamor for diners' attention, and a bucket of wings ($12.75) provides a perfect opportunity to prove your kindergarten teacher wrong about your ability to share.
The chefs at Triple Seven Pizzeria shuffle custom combinations of sun-dried tomatoes, pesto sauce, and mozzarella cheese to spread across sourdough crusts made fresh daily and form their gourmet, casino-themed pies. They stack the Texas Hold'em BBQ Chicken pie with grilled chicken breast, barbecue sauce, and cheddar cheese and crown the Straight Flush with pepperoni, red onions, and italian sausage. Vegetarian pies include the Viva Las Veggies, with black olives, zucchini, and green bell peppers, and the thin-crust Lady Luck, which diners typically blow on before eating, with fresh garlic, basil, and tomatoes. Patrons order from the red-and-black-tiled counter before adjourning to the outdoor dining area or around tables inside that afford views of 42-inch plasma TVs that project football games on Sundays.
