Not the Same Old Sandwich and Pizza Request

SharpCheese | Jul 22, 2009 06:27 PM

After indulgently allowing hours of my life pass away reading countless threads on San Francisco's best sandwich and pizza recommendations on chowhound (linking to menus and reading pages of detailed menu reviews), I have yet to find information to fulfill my food-quest.

This August I am making my first trip to SF (only 2 days, a Wednesday and Thursday) and want to experience an exceptional sandwich and pizza with very specific requirements. Here are the specs:

For the sandwich, I want to find one that I can't just whip up every day in my own kitchen. I want 2 things: Whole grain artisan bread and AMAZING cheese. No white rolls, no meat, no special mayonnaise, no standard cheddar, swiss, provolone fare.

The pizza holds nearly the same requirements. I want fantastic crust and a unique cheese offering, with one additional stipulation--it must be cooked in a WOOD-FIRED oven.

Fresh and local are almost a given with these types of expectations. I am plagued with a palate that has high demands--but I trust that San Francisco in all its culinary infamy will be able to satisfy it.

Thanks in advance!
