Pauline’s Pizza: Local Pizza with Great Ingredients
San Francisco, CA
Dine-in or Take-out
Next to the old Levi Strauss building lies a clean, well-lit restaurant (not pizza parlor) that happens to serve kick-ass thin-crust pizza. The secret is in the fresh vegetables that are sourced from their own gardens in Berkeley and Angels’ Camp.
Though not dirt cheap, these pizzas provide great value in a nice ambience. I tried the Pesto (Medium, $13.50), and the Italian Combination (Medium, $17.25). The pesto is drizzled onto the pie after it’s baked. I usually sprinkle a ton of chili peppers and parmesan cheese on my pizzas by default, but this one was perfect without any additional tweaking.
The Italian Combination was, as their menu advertises, their best deal. Several toppings, including their own sourced sausage. If you put this combo together on your own, it’d come out to more than $17.25, and they were generous with the meat!
