Intro/Opening a new Pizzeria in Oakland
Hi There! I'm a long time SE/Slice reader, but not much of a writer.
I don't know if y'all condone such self-promotion (so please let me know if this is out of line).
After years of fine dining pastry experience in NYC and Oakland and 4 years at Arizmendi (sister to the Cheeseboard in Berkeley) in Emeryville, I'm finally opening my own pizzeria in my hometown!
We're calling our pizza Oakland Style Pizza: Sourdough crust, deck oven baked, served in one size by the slice of the pie.
We'll be making 5 different types of pizza each week, using seasonal local and organic ingredients--varying from classic cheese or pepperoni to more cheffy combos.
If you're interested in checking out more about my little shop (and it's liiitttle), check our facebook page .......or if you're really excited about the shop you can particpate in our kickstarter and help us with the final push for funding for renovations.
I'm super excited to share this with y'all and glad that this has finally pushed me to join the SE community.
