A group of friends are planning a pizza crawl in early december. Chez Panisse will accomodate us (for 2 pizzas b/w 6-8 people...even with wine, we had to tell them our plan!!) at 3:15 but no later (eg: no early dinner)....and the next places on the list (Dopo, pizzaiolo) don't open until 5:30.
So, where in the nearby vicinity (we'll have a car and driver) would you recommend we go for our rule driven "one basic, one house special (obviously the nettle one at CP)" that would be open during this time-say 4 to 5:30 PM?
After the E Bay, we will be going to SF for Tommasso's, Pizzeria Delfina, and A16. Or, over the bay bridge for Picco and the Delfina and A16. we do realize take out may be in order in many places and thus, the limo. all pizzas will be treated equally and eaten quickly.
Many thanks for any suggestions- there seem to be no shortage of pizza opinions here so i'm hoping this is a good source...we wouldn't want to go hungry between this time-mostly b/c we'll break down and have a full meal at CP, thus ruining our plan.
