If you’re a foodie visiting the Bay Area, you’ll undoubtedly want to check out The Cheesecake Factory just outside San Francisco. This iconic restaurant chain has been serving up their unique take on this Italian classic for years, and it’s definitely worth a try! But what exactly is so special about their pizza? Keep reading for my review!

Today, my final pizza review of 2021 comes to an end as I am eating the flatbread pizza from The Cheesecake Factory. This is a restaurant chain that has an incredibly vast menu of appetizers, salads, glamburgers, pastas and pizzas and so much more.

Hubby and I stopped at The Cheesecake Factory right before New Year’s Eve. I love visiting this restaurant because it has a really great ambiance with their mosaics, palm trees, almost Greco-Roman design, and Egyptian columns. You really have to see it to appreciate it.

For today’s post on our The Great San Francisco Pizza Tour of 2021 we are going to try Tony’s Pizza Napoletana in San Francisco’s Little Italy located in the North Beach neighborhood. Tony’s is a spot that we wanted to try a year ago but were too hungry to wait an hour in line with so many other Italian eateries and pizzerias around. Tony’s Pizza Napoletana’s claim to fame is chef and owner Tony Gemignani who you might remember from the Food Network and Travel Channel as winning the pizza throwing championships and pizza making competitions around the world. But, was it all just hype and marketing about making the best pizza in San Francisco, or are his pizzas really that good to have people waiting in hour long lines regularly. We were about to find out.

It was a beautiful sunny day but it was super windy and cold. No problem for us, we brought warm jackets and our appetites and knew we’d soon be full of pizza and that would keep us warm from the inside out. We walked over to Tony’s Pizza Napoletana and already there was a line. San Francisco is now permitting very limited in-door dining as well as out-door dining because of COVID and Tony’s has a lot of out-door booths (that have plexiglass partitions to separate diners). All the out-door booths were full but we felt pretty good when it was our turn and the waiter took us to a table for four around the corner. There were plenty of out-door heaters so we sat down and used the QRCode to look up the menu.
