Little Star Pizza is a popular pizza place with 2 locations in San Francisco and 1 in Albany. We visited the Divisadero location and ordered deep dish pizza. It took about 30 minutes to get our pizza. They have gone on to open several locations in the Bay Area.

Blue Line Pizza is their name for locations from Burlingame southwards. We have tried their Burlingame location towards the end of 2013. The menu is very similar.

Little Star Pizza San Francisco Exterior

Decor, Vibe – Little Star Pizza is in the middle of the Western addition, not the best of neighborhoods. The place is dark and feels cramped. Hipsters in their 20′s were mostly eating here and drinking Pabst and listening to the jukebox. Wait times can be long from 7-9 pm. The Mission District location is about the same decor wise.

Little Star Pizza Picks:

Little Star Pizza San Francisco Deep Dish Classic Pizza

Deep Dish Classic ($19 for 9in, $23.95 for 12in)- 25 minute baking time. Sausage, mushrooms, green bell peppers and onions would feed about 2 people. Gotta eat this pizza hot. The pizza was full of fresh chunky tomatoes. Sausage was not spicy nor was it overly flavorful. Could have used more toppings. Corn mealy buttery crust was best part. The bottom was crispy when it was out of the oven.  Try not to get these to go, you’ll lose this crust. Lots of toppings but not a lot of sausage. A good pizza but we like Zachary’s a little better.

Mediterranean Chicken ($18 for 9in, $23.95/12in) Chicken breast, artichoke hearts, red bell peppers, green olives, onions, feta had lots of chicken and dark olives. The Classic was better than this one as this was a little more soggy and less filling.

Classic Thin Crust Pizza ($18.25 for 12″) – Italian sausage, mushrooms, onions, green bells had a perfectly crispy crust. No sogginess here. A good mound of toppings made this a solid pizza, better than most.

Mixed Salad ($6.25 for small) – Organic mixed greens, cherry tomatoes, red bells, red onions, gorgonzola cheese & chopped walnuts, tossed with a housemade vinaigrette dressing. This was a decent salad with lots of ingredients and not too much sweetness.

OK:
None

Pans:
None

Little Star Pizza had friendly service that was about average. Cheap $10 corkage. Limited dessert menu.   This restaurant serves decent deep dish pizza that is a cut below Zachary’s in the East Bay. Of course it is just a matter of personal preference with this level of quality. It is worth visiting if you are in the area and do not feel hitting the East Bay.  Little Star Pizza has take out, but not delivery. Blue Line Pizza in Burlingame continues their quality tradition albeit in a less edgy environment.

    [...] not that big. Chewy crust, definitely not as good as the thin crust. Thick crust fans should visit Little Star or Zachary’s [...]
