thoughts on Pyzano's Pizza in Castro Valley (world champion pizza tosser 5 times running)

kimchee | Aug 9, 200508:05 PM

While flipping through TV channels a few weeks ago, I saw a program on the Pizza Battle of taste & tossing. The winner (for the 5th time I think) Tony Gemignani is from a place called Pyzano's Pizza in Castro Valley. The pizza they made sounded good & the winning one had a red wine sauce & mushrooms and a bunch of other stuff I can't remember. I don't see it on the menu on the website though. The contest wasn't just about tossing - it was also about the best tasting recipe and this place won over several other teams. I think Mario Batoli was a judge.

Has anyone been there & if so is it worth the drive to try?
