Square Pie Guys, San Francisco

Greasy, Cheesy and satisfying! Square Pie Guys serves great Detroit Style Pizza. “A crispy, crackly caramelized cheese crust that comes from baking in rectangular blue steel pans originally used to ferry auto parts around Detroit automotive factories.” We’ve seen a lot written about them, so we finally gave it a try. Definitely have been back too. Great stuff. No dine in or outdoor dining, all take out.

  • In March 2022 we tried Square Pie rival Joyride Pizza in the Mission and found it good but not up to Square Pie.  Joyride is much more thick and less on the ingredient side.  A proverbial A vs B+.
  • In July 2022 we tried Tony’s Pizza Detroit style.  It looks like a Chicago style topping on top of Detroit dough. Not up to snuff. 7.5/10
  • In August 2022 we ate outside at the Ghirardelli Square location

Their SOMA pickup location on Mission is swamped with Door Dash drivers. Also available in Oakland.

They now have gluten free crust and vegan cheese options!  If you like regular pizza, try Flour & Water Pizza.

Food Picks:


The 6×8 ($23) is their 8×10” red sauce pizza full of pepperoni, 48 pepperonis. Greasy, thick, crunchy even delivered. We patted it down and saw a nice orangish hue on the napkin. Surprisingly this pizza better than expected. Way More than Enough pizza for 2 people. We’ll be back to try more. Gluten free version available. Please note they respectfully decline add on requests, modifications, and swaps. You can order a build your own pizza. 9.5/10

The Shay Diddy ($22) white sauce, Italian sausage, roasted broccoli, chile flake, Mike’s Hot Honey This pie has been on our menu since day 1, so it only made sense to have another OG partner with us. The Mean Green Machine is now dubbed The Shay Diddy for the summer! Shay Diddy is a KMEL radio personality, SF native, and Camp Mendocino alum. 9/10

Plant Squares 2.0 ($23 +$2 Dairy free +$2 Gluten free) is perfect for vegans!  Looks great and tastes fine. 8/10 – Note: They are not a certified gluten-free facility. Our gluten free dough has trace amounts of dairy. If you have a severe allergy or have celiac disease, we recommend seeking other dining options

Peach Monkey Bread ($7) is their dessert pizza. Pizza dough dunked into butter and brown sugar. Topped with stone fruit, caramel, and seasoned ricotta. Wow its great too! Sorta like a big Auntie Anne’s pretzel type texture. 9.5/10

Just OK:
Fries ($5) with ketchup are nothing special. Try a different side. 6/10
