(San Francisco, Calif.) Patxi’s Pizza, the Bay Area’s premier locale for authentic Chicago-style stuffed and fresh Italian thin-crust pizza, was voted for the second year running as “Best Pizza” in SF Weekly’s annual Best Of Reader’s Poll.

SF Weekly says of its annual awards, “Among major world cities, few feel as much like a circus as San Francisco…[What] we’ve gathered here is some of that spirit, the people and events and places that seem to have spilled out from some secret big top hidden in the streets of the city.”

Patxi’s Pizza (pronounced PAH-cheese. ‘t’ before ‘x’), has nine locations in the Bay Area with its newest outposts in Livermore and San Jose, and two new locations in Denver, Colorado.

CEO Bill Freeman says, “Being that this award is decided by regular folks and not critics, it has special meaning for us at Patxi’s. We love our customers and thank them for all of their support and votes. We look forward to upholding our title and hopefully winning it year after year.”

Patxi’s Pizza features a standout family of pizzas, including their famous Chicago-style Stuffed Pizza (wheat crust available), their new Thin Crust featuring imported Italian Double Zero flour, and the popular Gluten Free thin-crust. The menu features chef-tested topping combinations or guests are invited to “Create Your Own Perfect Pizza” with a variety of fresh toppings, four styles of mozzarella and over 30 different meat and veggie toppings, and ingredients sourced locally when possible.
