In Pursuit of Pizza

Having come from a neighborhood in Boston that was a mere walk from a Todd English Figs pizza place, I’ve been desperately trying to scout out the best pies in my immediate area. I’m not a heavy toppings fan nor do I like really thick crusts. We sampled a groaning round from Escape from New York and got a wee bout of indigestion. Friends in Albany introduced us to Zachary’s and Cheeseboard, but alas, we live in Western Addition-ish, so neither of those could ever become a habit. Although, if we had a car I think we’d make Cheeseboard a weekly necessity. Finally, we decided to try out the pizzas at Fly on Divisadero.
Now? We can’t get enough. They’re personal-sized with excellent chewy-crispy crusts and run about $7-9. Our favorite flavors have been the Shroom Pie: sauteed, julienned portabello mushrooms, Parmigiano-Reggiano, and drizzles of pesto; Blue Carmel: chunks of gorgonzola cheese and red onions so sweetly caramelized they could be dessert; Blanco: sun-dried tomatoes, buttery artichoke hearts, Monterey Jack cheese, and scallions. Better than any delivery we’ve had yet.
We’ve been doing take-out recently, but if we actually sit at a table we can avail ourselves of their excellent range of beers and inventive sake cocktails. Plus, the Happy Hour prices are unbelievable.
762 Divisadero (at Fulton)
