Michael Bauer, food critic for the San Francisco Chronicle, continues his Pizza Friday series on his blog Between Meals with a trip to Za Pizza in San Francisco. Za Pizza makes a thin-crust New Yorkishstyle pizza:

Crust: The thin crust is stretched, with cornmeal on the bottom to give it crunch.
Pizza tried: The Da Vinci's Palette is a colorful blend of finely ground spicy sausage, strewn with confetti of red and green bell peppers and purple onions. It has a soft, pliable texture that makes exceptional contrast to the crisp crust and cornmeal. I swear they can hear each bite at the table next door. There are four different slices a day, including a great cheese and pepperoni.
Address: 1919 Hyde Street, San Francisco CA 94109 (map)
