Pizza isn’t usually the first thing that comes to mind when one thinks of San Francisco, but that doesn’t mean the City is lacking in the pizza department. In fact there’s quite a few good pizzerias close to Stanford Court, some of them straight-up amazing. Here’s where to eat pizza in Nob Hill, just in time for #NationalPizzaDay
Nob Hill Cafe

Located just a few blocks from Stanford Court, Nob Hill Cafe is a nearby favorite. This cozy neighborhood joint has become a popular spot over the past 20 years for its Tuscan-inspired cuisine. Although people always rave about their homemade pastas, don’t shy away from their pizzas either. With a thin-crust that’s on the thicker side, a pizza from Nob Hill Cafe is a solid choice, especially before a show at The Masonic.

Victor’s Pizza is nothing fancy. But it is good. It’s old-fashioned pizza in the neighborhood. They’re open late, and they deliver. Victor’s is ideal if you don’t want to leave Stanford Court, but your pizza tooth is aching. JSYO, they also do pizza by slice, say, if you get the munchies in the wee hours.
