I finally went to Basic Urban Kitchen last night and can now declare it the best pizza I've had in our fine city. We ordered the large red pie with mozzarella about eight vegetables. The thin crust pizza had that insanely delicious slight-woodfired-burnt-taste, perfect ratio of sauce: cheese, and just-right amount of toppings. The pie wasn't too greasey, but cooked in a way that I could appreciate each ingedient. I was also pleased to see they had Fat Tire on draft. That is pretty hard to find in Southern CA.
It got pretty loud and crowded, but we were able to enjoy our couch-like table and people watching. The service was fine considering how busy she was.
Although I have always enjoyed Lefty's and Luigi's, their pizza never completely wowed me.
Basic's pizza though, definitely hit every mark.
Has anyone out there tried the white pie with mashed potatoes? It doesn't exactly sound enticing, but I'm curious.
