There’s more than Una kind of Pizza in San Francisco

16 May

San Francisco is home to far more than una pizza, it is home too many unusual pizzas. Yes, if you want classic, I have already been quite clear that Tony’s Pizza Neoplatana is my guy/joint, but the other options are quite worldly.

There is Una Pizza, where you can rest assured that only one guy is making your pizza and that he knows what he is doing. Although you can’t be so relaxed that you will get a pie. They only serve until the dough is gone. I was once there so early for pizza security that I had to wander in a fabric store to buy time before I got the special once-a-year Christmas pizza. The festive pizza was adorned with escarole, olives, pine nuts and raisins.

I’ve never really dieted, so I am used to zero boundaries when I want to eat. Hell, there is even a big “Indulge” sign looming over my kitchen. However, there was one week when I was a vegan. Yes, it was right after Oprah and her staff all went vegan for a week. Scoff away! I used my week to indulge in all the special vegan splurges: vegan cupcakes and even a very special vegan Indian pizza. Zante is home to some pretty delicious Indian pizza and the vegan one is no exception.  The pizza with spinach, cauliflower, ginger, garlic, green onions and cilantro was one of the most flavorful pizzas of my life and made my week as a vegan totally painless.

However, behold, I have a new favorite worldly pizza that hardly anyone knows about. It is a Middle Eastern pizza at Jannah called Safeehat Falafel with a falafel crust. The garbanzo crust topped with pesto, eggplant, roasted red bell pepper, green and red onions, shitake mushrooms, tomato, feta and goat cheese is really out of this world. It takes the pie for the best, most unusual, pizza in San Francisco.
