Gioia Pizzeria offers up a quick slice for the noncommittal. An oven-fresh whole pie for the devoted.

Seasonal and housemade ingredients, but a New York-style fast experience.

With a location in San Francisco too, her/his owners Karen and Will Gioia give pizza “the Gioia touch” -- That means seasonal and housemade ingredients but a New York-style fast experience. How do you judge a pizzeria? Not by how it makes its Caesar salad (the Gioia grand touch involves croutons out of Acme Bread’s Pain au Levain). By how it presents its simple Margherita - Gioia does it with a sweet spread of Early Girl tomatoes, garlic, basil, and chewy mozzarella atop a crispy-charred crust. It’s called a classic pizza for a reason.
