10 San Francisco Restaurants That Serve Great Gluten-Free Pizza

SF’s best spots for a GF pie

View as Map

There was a time when opting out of gluten meant that one had to kiss pizza goodbye, as any decent crust also boasted a healthy shot of wheat. But as more and more folks turned away from gluten, bakers and pizzaiolos adapted — and these days, GF pizza is firmly in the mainstream. But just as some pizza is better than others, some gluten-free crusts have yet to catch up with the times. Here are the 10 San Francisco pizza restaurants that bake the best gluten-free pies. (All of these spots also serve traditional pizza, which means that cross-contamination is a definite risk. Those with celiac disease and other serious conditions should call ahead to see how their needs can be accommodated.)

Looking for gluten-free offerings besides pizza? Here’s Eater’s map of San Francisco’s best gluten-free friendly restaurants.

1. Tony’s Pizza Napoletana

1570 Stockton St
San Francisco, CA 94133
(415) 835-9888
Visit Website

For an additional $6, any of the “classic American” or “classic Italian” pizzas at award-winning pizzaiolo Tony Gemignani’s North Beach restaurant can be made with a gluten-free crust. Tony’s Pizza Napoletana cooks the former in a 550 degree flat top brick oven, and the latter in a 650-700 degree domed brick oven, and also offers a dedicated gluten-free tomato sauce and mozzarella pie prepared in a 500-degree electric oven.

2. Delarosa

2175 Chestnut St
San Francisco, CA 94123

Delarosa (which has two SF locations, in the Marina at 2175 Chestnut Street and at 37 Yerba Buena Lane downtown), offers a gluten-free crust for any of its Roman-style pizzas for an extra $5. Those who aren’t in a pizza mood can also dine from their gluten-free pasta menu, which includes items made with GF pappardelle, paccheri, or casareccia.

3. Presidio Pizza Co.

1862 Divisadero St
San Francisco, CA 94115

Visit Website

Presidio’s gluten-free crusts come from Mariposa Baking Company, an Oakland bakeshop that’s attracted a loyal following for its GF goods. Presidio’s gluten-free pizzas clock in at 12 inches, making them the smallest pies on the menu. Better order two just to be safe.

4. Giorgio’s

151 Clement St
San Francisco, CA 94118
(415) 668-1266
Visit Website

A hit with the post-kids-athletic-event crowd, Giorgio’s offers a host of pizza styles, including a 10 or 14-inch Udi’s gluten-free option that can be topped with a panoply of fixings, including — for the dairy avoiders in the group — Daiya vegan cheese.

5. Escape From New York Pizza

Copy Link
1737 Haight St
San Francisco, CA 94117
(415) 668-5577
Visit Website

All three locations of Escape from New York (1737 Haight Street, 333 Bush Street downtown, and 715 Harrison Street in SoMa) offer (for an extra $4) a gluten-free crust for any 14-inch pie. While delivery’s available at all its restaurants, Escape’s Haight spot (which has been open since 1986) has such a fantastic collection of rock memorabilia on display that a pick-up is worth the trip.

6. Bambino’s Ristorante

Copy Link
945 Cole St
San Francisco, CA 94117
(415) 731-1343
Visit Website

A Cole Valley landmark, Bambino’s senza glutine pizza (that’s just “gluten free” in Italian) is a personal-sized pie that comes with pizza sauce and mozzarella. The restaurant has over 30 toppings that can be added to that creation, but be warned: Some of those fixings might have come in contact with flour as they make their way through the kitchen, so those with strict dietary needs should stick with cheese.

7. Mozzeria

Copy Link
3228 16th St
San Francisco, CA 94103
(415) 489-0963

Mozzeria has garnered praise for its focus on ending the employment gap faced by members of the deaf community, but the pizza made in its 5,000-pound Stefano Ferrara oven is also worthy of attention. Its Neapolitan pizzas can be made with a 10-inch gluten-free crust for an additional $4.

8. The Pizza Place on Noriega

Copy Link
3901 Noriega St
San Francisco, CA 94122
(415) 759-5752
Visit Website

Every pie from this Outer Sunset standby can be made with a gluten-free crust — a house-made dough that is also vegan, they say. Since the Pizza Place on Noriega uses a brick oven, every pie takes 25–30 minutes to bake, so pre-planning (or patience) pays off.

9. Goat Hill Pizza

Copy Link
170 W Portal Ave
San Francisco, CA 94127
(415) 242-4628
Visit Website

At all three of Goat Hill’s SF locations (300 Connecticut Street in Potrero Hill, 171 Stillman Street in SoMa, and 170 West Portal Avenue), those who eschew gluten can order any of their classic pies with a thin, gluten-free crust. Hungry diners might want to grab two, though, as the GF option (an additional $4) is only available for medium-size pizzas.

10. Gialina

Copy Link
2842 Diamond St
San Francisco, CA 94131
(415) 239-8500
Visit Website

Gialina (as well as Ragazza, its 311 Divisadero Street counterpart, and Ardiana, its 1781 Church Street spin-off) offer a gluten-free crust for any of its thin-crust, Neapolitan-style pizzas for an additional $2.
