Tried the 4 cheese. Solid bar pizza. And for a decent price. Try it out - you won't regret it!
Pomo Pizzeria ( 2 Dec)

Excellent authentic Neapolitan personal pizza. Had the Italian sausage with red bell peppers and onions and the Regina Margherita. The Margherita was a winner - excellent sauce and dough. My only complaint is a common one with Neapolitan pizza - sometimes adding toppings can make the pizza sort of wet/moist, which makes the dough soggy. This didn't happen with the Margherita though - which made it the best bet here in my opinion.

Finally tried this old school North Beach institution. Love the classic Italian restaurant vibe - no pretension, no trendiness - just a homey authentic vibe. Ordered a bottle of their private label (la-ti-fricken-da!) wine and a large margherita. The pizza came out in about 5 minutes. I commented on that and our waitress replied “oh, our ovens are HOT!”. Great classic pizza. Thin but not super thin, loved the sauce. This pizza seemed to get better as we ate it. Gave it 4 stars, but by the end I was thinking it was a 5. Maybe that was the private label talking ... anyway would love to return and order the same exact thing!

**Review update** Had this again and it was even better! This might be the best crust in SF! So good... Finally tried tried this chef's elusive pizza at Vinyl's Thursday night party. And it was worth it. Had the margherita (shocker!) and it was incredible. Thin sourdough crust coated in olive oil and salt that wasn't bready or tough, but held it's shape (no sogginess here) and had a ton of flavor. Sauce was great. Gotta say this is one of the better pizzas I've tried in SF in some time...not neapolitan or classic thin crust...but something of it's own. Do this pizza!

** Review update! Went to the Pacific Heights location last night and the pizza was amazing! Had the Salsiccia (fennel sausage, tomato, bell peppers, onions, mozzarella). Perfect dry crust on the bottom that stood up when you held by the crust. Great toppings. This was awesome! ** If you like gourmet pizza, you'll like this, though it's tough to compare to regular pizza. If you don't mind waiting for an hour, it's definitely worth it. In other words, a place where high society types can "slum it" and allow themselves to indulge in this pedestrian fare. So scandalous.

If I remember correctly this was a somewhat nondescript doughy pie. We went back several times...but that was mostly due to the fact that this was the only game in town! Bumped up from 2 to 3 stars for the childhood memories.

Recently saw this one for the first time in the Trader Joe's freezer. This large size pizza is topped with sausage, pepperoni, peppers and onions. Thin crispy crust and decently flavored sauce. I recommend cooking it directly on the oven rack as opposed to a cookie sheet and letting it bake for an extra minute or two. Will get this one again.

Really good thin crust pizza. Had the plain cheese - not too greasy, and the crust is just crisp enough on the bottom. Perfect amount of sauce and cheese, the sauce had just the right sweetness as well. No complaints here, can't wait to go back.

Del Popolo (21 Aug)
  • Currently 4.0/5 Stars.
Finally tried this mobile pizza operation at the Off the Grid in the Presidio. The truck is insane - as described on their website, "Del Popolo is housed in a twenty-foot transatlantic shipping container that's been re-purposed and modified into a kitchen. A wall of glass doors exposes the interior, including the traditional Italian-made wood-fired oven." This thing really is a restaurant on wheels, it's insane just to see it. As for the pizza, it was quite good. Had the Margherita and the fennel sausage. The thing that stood out to me most was the tasty sauce and the crust edges (which I usually don't eat). The line is typically super long and it is not cheap, but worth it for some "fancy" pizza in the park.
