Default Re: WFO Pizza in the SF bay area?

John, My trip to NoCal went out the window, I needed to take care of a problem at work that came up at just the wrong time.. :-(
The up side is that I now have leads on a few bakeries and pizza places to hit.. :-)

Thorough Bread & Pastry is just up the street from Tartine and is somehow related to SFBI, San Francisco Baking institute. It's suppose to be superb and where Tartine is always reported to have a long line, Through is suppose to be accessible and excellent. I can't say that Tartine is any more or less excellent, maybe this summer I can comment. I also want to get up to the Farmers market in Sonoma to sample a few of Mike Zakowski's breads. Mike, AKA the bejkr, was part of the US baking team for the world championships in Paris last year. The US team got 3rd if I remember correctly. Mike bakes in a wfo built in a shipping container and sells at the Farmers markets in Sonoma.

I'll get up there this summer..

Chris

Hi Chris,

My next trip to get a WFO pizza will be here: UNA PIZZA NAPOLETANA

The restaurant comes very highly recommended. Not much for frills I would say however that is not what I am looking for. The Chronicle did an article on him a while ago.

I went to the SFBI Wood Fried Class last month and it was a great learning experience. The pizza was unimpressive however I am a pizza snob and hard to please. The oven management and the amount of different types of bread baked in 3 day was fantastic.

Sorry, I don't believe that they do, but I don't know the bakery and was hoping that someone up there might have some insight about what they do and how that person or persons describe them and the product/s. It's a very intriguing place. They buy the grain, and other ingredients, from local farmers. It sounds like they mill what they use on a daily basis. Additionally they use a steam tube, wood fired oven. All Sourdough?

PS Oroville is not anywhere near SF, but SF / NorCal is closer to Oroville than my normal stomping grounds..

PSS Josey Baker of The Mill in San Francisco did some training with Dave Miller the owner of Miller's Bakehouse..

PSSS Do I need to change my last name to bake and or mill? :-)

Thanks for sharing the information.
