Little Star Pizza
846 Divisadero St (Between Fulton and McAllister)
San Francisco, CA 94116
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 sister locations from Burlingame southwards. We have tried their Burlingame location in the Summer of 2020. The menu is very similar.
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.
Blue Line Pizza locations are in suburbia, mostly within local shopping districts

Little Star Pizza Picks:
Blue Line Individual Cheese Thin Crust ($8) is a very thin and crispy pizza with qualify cheese.
Blue Line pepperoni Pizza ($19.10 for small) was also very thin and crisp. Good ingredients but a bit greasy. Sop that up with a napkin!
Wild Mushroom & White Truffle Oil ($19.75, $25.75) – Wild seasonal mushrooms sautéed in garlic and white truffle oil with fresh mozzarella, fresh grated parmesan. We were hesitant to order it, but it proved to be really good. Nice essence of truffle.
Italian Combo Thin Crust Pizza ($19.55/25.65) Pepperoni, Salami, Onions, green bell peppers, olives has it all. Their same crisp thin crust. We like this better than the CHICAGO CHOP – A seasoned blend of chopped pepperoni, sausage, bacon, and salami with fresh mozzarella, crushed red pepper.
BBQ Chicken Thin Crust Pizza ($19.55/25.65) – BBQ infused pizza sauce, roasted chicken, bacon, red onion, pineapple and cilantro. A lot better than California Pizza Kitchen. Crispy crust and just enough sauce.
Mediterranean Chicken ($19.55/25.65) 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.
Blue Line Margherita – Sliced tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, roasted garlic, basil and fresh cracked pepper. This is definitely not a Neapolitan style pizza. California-Italian version with lots of sliced tomatoes.
Deep Dish Classic ($19 for 9in, $23.95 for 12in)- 25 minute baking time. Italian 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 as you can barely see them below the tomato sauce. Crisp 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 in Oakland a little better. In 2017 we found the pie too SALTY!
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. B
lue Line Pizza in Burlingame continues their quality tradition albeit in a less edgy environment.
