Just a few blocks up from Little Star is another deep-dish pizza haven, Zachary’s Chicago Pizza. This Bay Area establishment has been open for over 30 years, and aims to create authentic Chicago pizza with a Californian twist. The flakey, homemade dough is layered twice with a sheet of cheese and other fillings in between. Diced tomato sauce is poured on top of the second layer of dough and then cooked slowly until the crust is golden brown. Since its founding, Zachary’s has won over 170 ‘Best Pizza’ awards, making this spot a Bay Area favorite.
