This summer, I am living in San Francisco. Although there are dozens reviews of pizza places outside of New York City on I Dream Of Pizza, this is the first time I’ve been away for a prolonged period of time. As such, I’ll have the opportunity to do an in depth exploration of the pizza scene out here.
I’ve tried a few places so far, and while the pizza has been fine, what has really impressed me is the pizza places themselves. The signage, the architecture, and the character of each place. Each pizzeria has its own personality.
In New York, many places are impossible to differentiate between. Neon lights and an awning are almost a requisite of the corner slice joint. Sure there are exceptions. But out here being different, is the rule.
As such, I’ll be starting a feature on I Dream Of Pizza this summer: Beyond The Pie. Every week, I’ll post a photo (or photos) of an architecturally unique or fascinating pizzeria for your enjoyment.
Today, I’d like to introduce you to The Pizza Place On Noriega (3901 Noriega Street) in the Outer Sunset neighborhood.
