In searching for great pizza joints, Mulberry Street Pizzeria was recommended to me a number of times. And, in spite of a non-central location, I sought it out and discovered that they make really good pizza. They’ve won lots of “Best of Marin” awards for it too (see right).
Here’s what makes my list for a good pizza: hand tossed dough (so fun to watch that part of the preparation), a raised, chewy crust, excellent tomato sauce (not too sweet) and a good selection of fresh toppings. I also love pesto pizza, and they’ve got that down, too. In surveying my friends who love this place, the top three picks are Three Beer Pizza, Hal’s and Pizza al Pesto (one person likes this with grilled chicken added).
