Michael Bauer, food critic for the San Francisco Chronicle, continues his Pizza Friday series on his blog Between Meals with a trip to Frankie, Johnny, and Luigi Too in Mountain View, California. The joint makes New York–style pizza:


Bauer says:

No crust outside of cardboard could hold the weight of the toppings applied; it's got a little crispness at the edges, but the hand-tossed dough bakes to a breadlike texture.

With our waiters' help, we chose the Tina's Too Too Much, with too much salami, pepperoni, sausage, linguica, mushrooms, onions and bell peppers. We also tried the New York Style: oregano-laced tomato sauce, Italian sausage and mushrooms.
