Michael Bauer, food critic for the San Francisco Chronicle, continues his Pizza Friday series on his blog Between Meals with a trip to Piccino. Piccino makes an ultra-thin-crust Roman-style pizza:

Bauer says:

Pizza tried: The Margherita is slathered with a sauce as thick as tomato paste, puddles of mozzarella and a few shards of basil. The waiter recommended the house-made sausage pizza, with restrained dollops of mozzarella on a background of thin slices of roasted gypsy peppers and delicate whisps of chives that added fresh depth to the other ingredients.

Hmm. I can't tell if he liked it or not ...
