Over 45 Years in the Business and with a Signature Sourdough Crust
Established in 1969, Red Boy Pizza began as a single, 90-square-foot location in San Francisco, California. Founders Peter and Kitty Forstner owned and operated the business for more than 45 years featuring only the finest ingredients, including a true San Francisco Sourdough Crust. Peter named the restaurant Red Boy Pizza after a drawing he had created as a young boy in his native Germany the original Red Boy.
Today, though Peter and Kitty have retired, Red Boy Pizza remains a family owned business. Each pizza is hand crafted to perfection, providing the kind of quality and attention to freshness you can only find here in the San Francisco Bay Area.
From our dough to sauces and toppings, to our pastas and desserts, Red Boy Pizza uses only the freshest ingredients. The foundation of each pizza remains the sourdough crust, the mother dough of which was originally brought from in 1918. Red Boy Pizza™ sauce is produced from fresh, hand-picked, California tomatoes, never concentrate! Combined with the finest herbs, spices and other special ingredients, Red Boy Pizza produces the highest quality pizza you will ever taste.
There are now eight Red Boy Pizza restaurants in Marin, Sonoma and Alameda counties, with more opening soon. Most Red Boy Pizza Restaurants are both dine in and take out and offer free delivery to limited areas. We encourage you to visit the location nearest you and experience the best pizza, pasta and Italian salads that only our dedicated Red Boy family can offer.
