Pepperoni, pineapple, jalapeno. $4
Nizario’s Pizza, San Francisco CA

This is still one of my favorite pizzas are Nizario’s. I love the flavors and they’re great for after a long night out. The crust isn’t my favorite, but it’s a nice cheap late night option.

Canadian bacon and pineapple. $4
Nizario’s Pizza, San Francisco CA

Growing up, Hawaiian pizza was always my favorite! I loved the combination of the salty Canadian bacon and the sweet pineapple. We didn’t have fancy pizzerias in the small town where I grew up so I wasn’t aware of anything better, hehe. I still love me some Hawaiian pizza though!

Chicken, pesto, spinach and feta cheese. $4
Nizario’s Pizza, San Francisco CA

Ah, the good ‘ole 2 AM slice of pizza! I always seem to add more parmesan cheese and dried pepper flakes on top. The better to soak up those pesky Cape Cods, lol!

Pepperoni slice - Nizario's Pizza

Back in graduate school, I would frequently hit this place after a night of clubbing. These days, I’m less likely to grab pizza with the afterhours crowd – I’m getting old! I did, however, find myself at Nizario’s recently. I’m surprised I was able to take these pics, lol! As if a greasy pepperoni pizza slice isn’t enough, I’ll also cover the slice in red chili flakes, oregano, and parmesan cheese. I’m a mess!
