Little Star Pizza – Western Addition
Located at 846 Divisadero St. is just one of their three locations. There’s one in NOPA, Mission, and lastly one in Albany across the bay. They serve up everything you’d expect a pizza joint to, from deep dish pizzas and thin crust pies to spicy chicken wings and even Caprese salads.
As the clock struck 2 P.M, I realized I was starved (as usual). So, my colleagues and I decided to grab a bite to eat. Everyone was very indifferent as to what and where we would eat. We made a last minute decision to come here and everyone was pretty happy that we did.
We walked into Little Star Pizza and were immediately seated. We decided to go all out by ordering the spicy chicken wings and a deep dish pizza complete with mozzarella, pepperoni, mushrooms, and anchovies. What a combo! I had stated that I really didn’t mind whatever toppings my workmates wanted to throw on the pizza, but after I heard what was actually going on the pizza I was a little hesitant.
The wings came very quickly while we waited for our Smörgåsbord of a pizza. Earlier, it had been foretold that the wings were superb and thus we had to to try them. And they were cooked perfectly. The meat was practically falling off of each chicken bone, making it a cinch to pick them clean. The wings came with some baby carrots and blue cheese dressing. The blue cheese was the perfect match for the slightly spicy chicken and carrots. The wings really didn’t need it, but it was nice to have nonetheless.
Just before we could even finish our wings, the pizza had arrived. It looked a little unconventional and tasted much the same. Not to say that unconventionality is necessarily a bad thing! Although I was initially hesitant about the anchovies, they were used sparingly and actually added a nice touch to the pie.
The crust was amazing and possibly my favorite part. It was crisped on the outside, but only to such a degree where the inside of the pizza was still insanely fluffy. This worked very well with the heaps of tomato sauce, pepperoni,and mushrooms.
Little Star Pizza is a classy establishment that knows how to fill their niche and do it well. How classy are they? Apart from the modern decor, they were even so classy as to charge a mere 25 cents for the use of their in-house ATM. I don’t know how often you get that price at your local ATM, but 25 cents is unheard in regards to most ATMs in San Francisco (they usually charge a dollar or even two). Overall, it was a great experience. You stay classy Little Star Pizza!
