Read review on Judy’s Book.

Lately I have been getting a little depressed about the quality of delivery pizza in the neighborhood (Mission Bay/Ballpark). I mean, Amici’s is good, but is 100% better when you eat it at the restaurant. North Beach is pretty much inedible in my book – like a doughy sponge covered in gloppy cheese. I guess it’s the Noah’s Bagels of pizza. Extreme? Nice, but I don’t feel cheddar has any place on a slice. Over the years, I’ve pretty much tried them all.

Except for Goat Hill, which I had for the first time today based on local reviews of the Harrison street location. For this test, my wife and I went with both a cheese pizza and a combo pizza – loaded to the hilt with pepperoni, sausage, mushrooms, green peppers, green onions, black olives and whatever else they could fit on the pizza.

The delivery: In the driving, pouring rain, the pizzas came here in 45 minutes, still very hot and without the dreaded cheese-slide that results in all of the toppings shifting over to one corner of the pie. It came with a bag full of paper plates, cheese packets and pepper flakes.

The Food: This is what I would call a standard “California Pie” – sourdough crust slightly dusted with cornmeal and covered with a slightly sweet sauce and a good layer of cheese. It’s not what I would call world class pizza by any means, but it’s a great delivery pie – able to hold up to the weight of the toppings and the potentially sogginess typically caused by the delay caused by delivery.

The pizza is a 4 out of 5. One point comes off due to the $3.95 delivery charge, bringing the final score down to three stars.

Overall, if you’re a SOMA dweller looking for a good delivery pizza, you could do much worse than Goat Hill.
