Zachary's thin crust: thumbs up

After a long day of hiking with visiting relatives the vote of the majority was to introduce them to Zachary's pizza.

Now, I'm not a fan of the "stuft crust" pizzas: too heavy, too soggy, etc. But I remembered that people had spoken favorably about their thin crust so we ended up getting both types.

The other disclaimer is that I'm not a pizza person -- I can (and do) go many months, without so much as a bite of pizza, and I can't remember the last pizza I bought. However, if all pizza were as good as the thin crust from Zachary's, I might change my mind.

I'm not an expert of what distinguishes the various styles, but this had a medium-thin, slightly chewy crust, dusted with cornmeal. The sauce was nicely spiced, and the toppings were well balanced.

Nice to know I don't have to bow out when everyone else wants Zachary's.

PS: The guests, my cousin and three of his young friends from England, happily scarfed down every bite of pizza in sight, although I'm not sure it was as much of a hit as the Mission burrito the day before.
