Best Pizza Place on the Edge of the Universe
The Pizza Place
For someone who lives in the downtown corridor — all right, the Tenderloin — the idea of going to Ocean Beach for pizza is rife with potential pratfalls: high Uber fares, lengthy Muni trips, ever-present fog, jet lag. That said, The Pizza Place on Noriega and 46th Ave. is well worth those travails. Specializing in East Coast fare, The Pizza Place serves slices that are thin, greasy and full-flavored — patrons can fold those huge portions and shove them right in their mouths, which is exactly how pizza should be consumed. The specialty pies are inventive and delectable, and there is a bunch of great beers on tap. It gets zero stars for naming gusto, but The Pizza Place earns five stars for its product.
