The Chronicle on Zuni Cafe's Pizza
I usually try to link to Michael Bauer's Pizza Friday series each week, but I neglected to last week, which is when he took a trip to Zuni Cafe in San Francisco. (Yesterday he went to Piatti, but it's a chainish place and I'd rather highlight a cool place like Zuni in this space.) Anyway, Zuni Cafe makes a "thin-crust Italian-style" pizza, according to Bauer. After the jump, a tasty video from the Chronicle.

Crust: The dough is stretched thin so it comes up pleasantly crisped and chewy.
Pizza tried: Zuni only offers two pizzas a day -- one with tomato sauce and ricotta salata with flecks of fresh oregano; stunning in its simplicity. The other changes daily and spotlights seasonal ingredients. On my recent visit, it was with sausage, rapini, red onions, mozzarella and manchego cheese.
