Cannibal Pizza, Pizza Nostra
The Frenchies have done it again. From the same owners as Chez Papa Resto, Chez Papa Bistrot, and Chez Maman, Pizza Nostra has hit the ground running -- delighting lucky Potrero residents with truly great pizza.
Seems like SF just can't get enough of the 'za. With stiff competition like A16, Pizzeria Delfina, and Little Star Pizza in the city, the heat is on…but Pizza Nostra holds its own with Pizzaiolo Giovanni Aginolfi at the helm. Aginolfi has 18 years of experience under his belt, including placing 5th at last year's World Pizza Championship. One taste of his pie and you can see why.
Thin crust with just enough crisp and crunch. Smooth, chewy, flavorful dough -- made with tipo 00, of course. And an impressive range of gourmet toppings like prosciutto di Parma, lamb sausage merguez, and even a four cheese bianca made with sweet gorgonzola and pear.
The standout of the night that floored us and left us with that lusty, satiated, glow in our eyes was the Cannibal pizza. Topped with tomato, mozzarella, chunks of full-flavored ground beef, oregano...and crowned with a single egg cracked on top, baked to soft perfection so that the golden yolk spilled out in a lava of velvety richness. Brilliant. Yes. More please.
