Great pizza! Not your usual pie. Inventive, fresh, firm chewy crust. Live music. Long line but it goes quickly as there is only one type of pizza served each day.

In spite of the queue, the service is relatively quick. The pizza are very good. It's pricey though.

This pizza will take you by surprise, truly former pizza at a modest price. They added a "park-let" with additional seating which just adds to the charming atmosphere. The line goes around the block most of the time, but it moves really quickly. The staff is super friendly and efficient. Interesting selection of sodas and don't forget the green sauce... More

Excellent vegetarian pizza (just one per day, buth who minds), live music (jazz combo), just relax and enjoy. Or grab a half baked pizza and put it into the oven at home.

When you see long lines along Shattuck Avenue, sometimes all the way to Vine Street, it's because the Cheese Board is selling pizza. You can buy it at the cheese store, in a box (good idea to pre-order) by the half or the whole, or you can buy it at the pizza store, with maybe a garden salad. Then the... More

They only make one kind of pizza a day. So, you have to trust the cooks here. You should! I never thought corn, potatoes, greens, or goat cheese would be good on a pizza but they are. They are masters at putting these combinations together. Plus, while you wait in line (which is sometimes long, but moves quickly), they usually... More

Amazinng affordable and unique slices. If you want a quick easy and inexpensive meal in the go - cheeseboard is your spot. Pros: seasonal creative topings, yummy. Cons: only one special a day and can get crowded in the ordering line.

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 wonderful cheeses, so... 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
