When I was doing research on the best pizza in San Francisco there were several names that kept popping up and Pizzeria Delfina was one of them. It was also Ariel’s favorite so that’s where he brought me.
We went to the branch in nearby California St. It was close to 10 pm when we arrived and there was still a short line.
My choice was the funghi pizza made with hen of woods mushroom, fontina cheese, panna (cream) and nepitella (an Italian herb). I was so excited since this was my first carb intake in 3 weeks.
funghi pizza $17
I read that Pizzeria Delfina uses a gas oven instead of the traditional wood burning oven. They must have an oven capable of very high temperatures to make the crust evenly charred that resulted in a crunchy crust just the way I liked it.
Yes I ate all of that! I really don’t eat the ends of the pizza specially when the edge of the crust is thick. Besides I was trying to minimize carbs and calories. Yeh right! I can’t believe we finished 2 pizzas. Granted it wasn’t that big, only 12 inches, and I didn’t eat all the filling crust.
I would have loved to walk back to the hotel but it was freezing. Ariel kept laughing at me since I wasn’t used to the cold windy weather. I wish I brought a winter jacket instead of a light sweater. I don’t know how many times I repeated that during the 3 days I was in San Francisco. Brrrrr…..
