Pizza Art

I'm sorry this photo turned out so meh, because the pizza was anything but. Cousin Jan ordered this from the menu at the SRJC Culinary Café - it was spectacular!

The crust was one of the best I've ever tasted, crisp but not dry and very light and tasty. The toppings were goat cheese, thinly sliced ripe figs, ham and potatoes that had been sautéed before being added to the pizza. Jan hesitated before ordering what seemed like a rather strange combination but was hugely rewarded for doing so by one of the best combinations it has been our pleasure to discover.

Salty, savory, tangy, sweet - it was all there and it was all delicious, rivaling the pizza over at Rosso (also in Santa Rosa), and that's really saying something!

I may try making this combination at home. It's like a that Picasso sculpture of the bull's head made from a bicycle seat and handlebars - once you've seen it, you could make it yourself, but you have to acknowledge the genius who thought of it first.

High praise indeed! The future chefs of Sonoma County continue the tradition of culinary excellence.

Greg, they were pretty cute, too.

Indie, welcome. It tasted far better than my photo captured.

Charming and apt use of the Picasso allusion. Cranky thought so, too. Clever you.
