Step out of your comfort zone you pepperoni people and try this place. Excellent pizza that doesn't skimp on the cheese or jack up the price, like so many other vegetarian pizza's do. You won't regret it. Oh, but expect lines and very limited seating. Still, it's worth it!

The line moves quickly. There is only one pizza per day and we have never had a disappointment after scores of visits. The green salsa is to die for and compliments every pizza. Live music on many days is a real plus.

I love this place. The menu is simple and limited as you basically have to order the daily pizza, however this assures you it is always creative and FRESH. You do not really know what you will eat until you get there and see what is being offered, but you never go wrong, as it is always delicious. And to... More

You approach this place as you're walking along Shattuck Ave, you see a lineup, something smells really good. People at the (relatively few) communal tables are smiling as they devour some mighty interesting-looking pizza. A live band starts playing some tasty jazz. "Gee, too bad the line-up's so long" one of you says to the other. And then one of... More

As organic as possible. Crust is crisp and blending of ingredients is tasteful and tasty! Never let's you down.

I went to Cheese Board pizza for lunch today. So impressed by the place. Excellent thin crust pizza with four cheeses. There was a long queue but so worth it. Would highly recommend Cheese Board Pizza.👌👍

The Cheeseboard (and its Arizmendi independent spinoffs) is delicious, fun, cool, veg, progressive, cooperative. Great pizza, bread, cheese, scones, and other possibilities made, sold, and served by a worker-owned cooperative, which is an alternative to capitalism or perhaps a beautiful blend of capitalism and socialism. Not only do many local people go and eat here, locals brings their out-of-town guests... More

Nothing to add that others haven't already. Super delicious gourmet pizza. May not appeal to more mainstream tastes but then it's not a mainstream place. Always crowded but lines move fairly quickly. Great ingredients. Good price. And it's a cooperatively owned company - that means every staff member you see there is a partial owner. Awesome!

Excellent food - salads are pretty good too. In the evenings there's usually a great atmosphere with live music. I've been going there for 20+ years and never had a bad experience.

Have never seen Cheeseboard without a long queue at least up to the sidewalk often beyond . Just one pizza, probably always vegetarian and delicious, it is collect and go if you like, or to tarry within or outside listening to one or the other bands, usually jazz. A local institution greatly loved and visited, and surely a must for... More
