Speederia Pizzeria is located in the Laurel St shopping district in sleepy San Carlos. We have been here several times with our last visit in August 2010.
They specialize in Real New York Style thin crust pizza. CASH ONLY.
Decor, Vibe – Speederia Pizzeria is a casual place and has 4 small tables inside and a couple outside. The walls are lined with auto racing posters and pictures. They concentrate on to go pizza slice sales and have a 2 slices and a soft drink special for $6. All prices include tax.
Most people select a slice from the display case and have it re-heated in a minute or two. We ordered 2 pizza pies which took about 25 minutes.

Inside of Menu
Pig Apple Special – mozzarella, ham, pineapple pizza ($17, $3 slice) had tons of toppings that tasted good and fresh. The thin crust was crunchy especially on the edge, no sogginess here but a bit of greasiness. This is the kind of pizza where people want to eat the edge first. Crust was a little chewy, not burned, and faded after 15 minutes of sitting. Good solid pizza, not really artisan. Their X-Large pies are 18in in size.

Brooklyn Pizza – Mozzarella, pepperoni, sausage , meatball Pizza ($19, $3 slice) also had lots of toppings. Crust was the same level of goodness and thinness as the Pig Apple. Sausage was not spicy.

Indianapolis ($3 slice) with mozzarella, pepperoni, meatball, mushroom, garlic tasted like the other with very little mushroom.
Speederia Pizzeria’s pizza was completed as promised and tasted good. The value offered by the 2 slice special is the best deal. Chicken Garlic Pesto pizza is their specialty so try it if you like that combination.
Speederia Pizzeria and Toto’s serve some of the best pizza on the Peninsula. These places do not use organic and local ingredients. We have to give the better thin pizza nod to places like Gianas and Pauline’s Pizza in San Francisco. Arinell’s Pizza in San Francisco is similar to this Speederia.
