Meet Naomi and Joel of Pizza Politana. They make Neapolitan-style pizza with seasonal ingredients, hot out of the oven at Bay Area farmer's markets and festivals. In addition to the classic margherita pizza, they also serve a "market" pizza with toppings that change every week depending on what's fresh at the market.

You may remember when we mentioned that Coffee Bar was set to host San Francisco's "Nomadic Pizza Throw-Down", a mobile vendor pizza taste-off that raised $2480 for tsunami victims in neighboring Japan. At this event four mobile pizzaiolos made pizza for over 300 charitable/hungry people whose $12 admission bought a beverage, a slice from each competitor, and a vote to decide the winner. Coffee Bar called it a "tasty approach to global citizenry". What follows is a rundown of the pizzas sampled from the day.
