The only pizza my son will eat

This place is a cooperative, which means the folks that work there also own the place. The pizzas are a bit unusual, in that there's only one flavor a day. Oh, but what a flavor! The dough is made from their own starter, and so yummy. The cheeses are from their sister store that sells the most... read more

Unique, consistently interesting, consistently tasty: one pizza a day, always vegetarian, using cheese from its own shop which is one of the best around. Open for lunch and dinner, always crowded and always with a line down the block, but well worth doing. Tip: Buy the day's pizza half-baked in the cheese shop, take it home and finish in a... More

great contribution to our community -- live music mid-day, long lines of people eager for pizza. Great bakery and cheese store next door belonging to the same people.

Cheeseboard Pizza is always good no matter what the days pizza is. High quality fresh ingredients. And try the salads too - superb.

I have been eating Cheaseboard pizzas for 35 years, on a weekly basis. It has spoiled me for other pizzas. It is simply the best,in my opinion. I may stop by for a slice and some free jazz on my way to do errands in the afternoon. Or we often buy a whole light bake to take home, add some... More

We have been going there since 2002. The thin crest pizza with organic salad are all time our favorite. It is located on north Berkeley. I took friends there from all over the world. Everyone loves it!

The very best pizza in the Bay Area. Check out their website to see what pizzas they are making for the week. Love the live music and laid-back Berkeley atmosphere but it's the pizza that's worth the trip.

Had to try it. Lives up to the hype, but now that there's so much good pizza around, it's not as unusual as it once was. Great for a slice, though, so you don't have to get a whole pizza. Also good for hanging out and feeling like a hip aging hippie.

Long line but worth it! Only one pizza per day and have tried several different ones and have never been disappointed.
