Smoked Salmon Brunch Pizza at Rose’s Cafe (San Francisco)

Melanie Wong | Jan 15, 201103:47 PM

The last day of 2010 was dry, albeit it very chilly, and a good time a stroll down Union Street sans umbrella. The sidewalk tables at the usually ultra-busy Rose’s Cafe were deserted, seeming like a chance to eat here without a wait. Inside, people were squished like sardines waiting for tables indoors. With immediate seating outside, I opted for al fresco. With a steamy bowl of café au lait, an overhead heater radiating above, and a personal control knob to regulate the heater, soon I was as toasty through and through as I’d been in days. Rose’s Café ended the year by offering its weekend brunch menu instead of Friday lunch.

Rose’s fires pizzas in a wood-burning oven. However, a smoked salmon pie might not be the best demonstration of the fire power as shown by this platinum blonde, crackery crust pizza upskirt.

Yet, this very minimalist crust was a good blank slate for the toppings: slices of velvety cold-smoked salmon, creamy scrambled egg, a light brush of sour cream with fresh herbs, and peppery arugula, $16. Each ingredient was in just the right proportion for delicious harmony. This pizza’s more than enough for one, and probably better shared by two.
