#5 Pizzetta 211

211 23rd Ave.

Zagat Food Score: 25

The crispy thin-crust pizzas at Pizzetta 211 are loaded with fresh artisanal ingredients like wild arugula, fresh tomatoes, and even farm eggs.

The Outer Richmond venue is tiny, the wait is long, and the staffers have a 'too cool' attitude, but pie aficionados say that it's worth it.

#4 Pizzeria Delfina

2406 California St. and 3611 18th St.

Zagat Food Score: 25

At Pizzeria Delfina, California meets Naples in the form of the fresh yet authentic thin, chewy, delicious pies topped with high-quality ingredients.

This upscale pizzeria has two locations (one in the Mission and the other in Pac Heights), but both have long lines of people who come to try the delicious pizza.

#3 Tony's Pizza Napoletana

1570 Stockton St.

Zagat Food Score: 25

People come to Tony's to watch celebrity chef-owner Tony Gemignani make his 'phenomenal

#2 Arizmendi

1268 Valencia St.

Zagat Food Score: 26

This pizzeria-meets-bakery is a worker-owned co-op in the Mission that serves excellent breads and pizzas, fresh out of the oven.

The pizza specials change every day, but they're all vegetarian. There might be a pizza with Roma tomato, goat cheese, and basil pesto or a pizza with spinach, artichokes, parsley, and Parmesan cheese.

#1 Una Pizza Napoletana

210 11th St.

Zagat Food Score: 26

NYC transplant and skilled pizza-maker Anthony Mangieri has been said to make the make the most 'ethereal' Neapolitan pizzas in San Francisco.

There are only five varieties of pizza on offer (all meatless), but they're all made with high-quality, fresh ingredients, like San Marzano tomatoes, buffalo mozzarella, and extra virgin olive oil.

Despite the attitude, price (pizzas start at $20) and long waits, people still flock here just to sample one of Mangieri's pizza masterpieces.

But New York is really the pizza capital of America, right?
