Pizzeria Delfina - Bacalao Pizza

gtchow | Sep 17, 2007 03:18 PM

quick post after my first dinner at pizzeria delfina last night to mention an OUTSTANDING bacalao pizza--salt cod, potato, panna, parmesan (i think), tomatoes. unlikely combination had me skeptical at first, esp since it was my first visit--i thought maybe i should go a more conventional route, like the margherita or napoletana. thank god i didn't! who knew salt cod on a pizza could be so delicious! the textures of the pizza were memorable--the softness of the salt cod and potatoes, which turn out to have a similar texture, versus the toothsome chewiness of the thin crust pizza dough. the tomatoes in the sauce and on the pizza themselves were amazingly sweet and acid at the same time, which balanced the small dash of panna (cream, i'm guessing?) on the pizza, which in and of itself might had been odd. i will definitely be back to try the rest of the pizzas, although if they keep putting on daily specials like this one, i'll never get around to trying the margherita...

started with a salumi sampler which was nice but nothing particularly exciting, as well as a special app, gypsy peppers with grilled flatbread--surprisingly good, elevating usual unexciting roasted red peppers to another level. all accompanied by a nice half-bottle of a 2003 aglianico. finished off with scoops of salted caramel and honey lavender ice cream from bi-rite down the street. aaaah, an ideal sunday evening in san francisco...
