Slow Club's grilled flatbread* varies by season and by meal. Sometimes you get sausage, other times apples and sage. When I visited for brunch, it was sheep milk mozzarella, bacon, shaved brussel sprouts, caramelized onion, and a baked egg.

My dining companion accurately labeled the crust on this flatbread as resembling pita, though it had some crunchy edges. It worked as a utensil for delivering the caramelized cheese and other toppings to one's mouth.

I wanted more brussel sprouts, and more moisture at the center of my egg, but you won't find me complaining about melted cheese, smoky-salty cured pork, and sweet onions during brunchtime.

*I've been intent on exploring San Francisco flatbreads recently. Some turn out to be pizza by another name. Others, like this one, maybe less so.
