Just had some delicious pizza from a pop-up in El Cerrito at a bar called Little Hill Lounge. Kind of an old school dive bar, but the bartender makes drinks with home grown and home made ingredients. I loved the strawberry rhubarb whiskey sour!
Anyway, the pop-up is called Pie on the Fly and they do it on Wednesday. They were there for happy hour, so I tried some. It’s kind of a hybrid California/Neapolitan style. It’s puffy and light, but instead of being limp like a true Napolitana style it has a nice crisp undercarriage. The topping selection is kind of limited, but they are all good quality. They had two specials when I was there; one with pesto and pistachios and prosciutto, and a lemon margherita with lemon basil and lemon zest. It sounded good, but I opted for a sausage. It tasted home made with lots of fennel and spices.
Anyway, I live in Albany, so it’s not too far away for me. I will try and get there again sometime. It’s a lonely stretch of San Pablo Ave. and there isn’t too much for a pizza fan anywhere close, between Gioia’s in North Berkeley and Raymond’s in Point Richmond. Check them out if you’re in the area.
