Gatsby's pizza is back! (Sausalito)

Mick Ruthven | Oct 20, 200611:29 PM     13

First the bad news... I haven't tried it yet. Now the good news...I had a late lunch today at Sartaj Indian Cafe in Sausalito (another post) and as I left and walked past next-door Rustica (used to be Gatsby's) I saw in their windows signs that said "Gatsby's pizza is back!". I was taken to Gatsby's to eat pizza 30 years ago by a friend who was from Chicago, and I liked that deep dish version enough that I had to go back periodically for a fix. I went inside and spoke to the owner, who said he recently got the former owner of Gatsby's to give him his pizza receipe and now he's making it. He said he can't be sure it's exactly the same, but he is following the recipe. He said he's making one size and indicated with his hands that it was smaller than before, then said that he's really charging "nothing" for them, $8.50 for the basic cheese if I recall correctly. Just know that Gatsby's pizza was so thick with ingredients that a small-looking piece was really filling. OK, it's back, so someone check it out. I had eaten way too much at Sartaj to even think about trying it then.
