I’m a pizza snob.
Usually only East Coast pizza will do.
I recently stayed with a friend in the Bay Area area, Castro Valley to be exact, and was quite doubtful when my friend told me about “the best” pizza place just a mile from her house. Something about awards and late night TV talk shows and the Food Network.
OK, OK, I’ll check it out.
I did and it was… well pretty darn good.
The place is Pysano’s Pizzeria and indeed the owner, Tony Gemignani is known for this throwing. Pizza, not up. He’s won the Naples Pizza Making Contest and the joint is filled with photos of his gigs on late night talk shows.
The pizza, while not exactly perfect East Coast style, had a nice not-too-thick-crust and well spiced sauce. However, it did have just a bit too much cheese for my liking. Would I go back? Definitely.
Life’s Short, Eat Well!
