Do you think of BluWater when you want to order a pizza? Probably not, but I’m suggesting that you try it! They only offer 3 types: the Classic Margherita, the Hunter Gatherer and my personal favorite: the Greek. All have a delicious crust which is baked to perfection, the right amount of cheese and dream toppings. The Greek has a pesto base and is topped with feta, mozzarella, capers, artichoke hearts, Roma tomatoes, kalamata olives at $14.75. The Hunter Gatherer should satisfy the carnivores in your family: Italian sausage, crimini mushrooms, mozzarella, roasted garlic, rosemary, pomodoro at $16. And they come in reasonable sizes; they don’t hang around in the fridge forever.


Central Pizza is another local place to order pizza; I have become disenchanted with their pizza. The last several had burnt crust, not enough cheese, and the young ones in this house like the BBQ Chicken pizza but on the last few, the chicken seemed to have raced over the pizza leaving a disappointing amount. When Central first opened, the original owners told of their search for a good sourdough crust. That intrigued me; I’m a bread person and am perfectly happy on San Francisco’s Fisherman’s Wharf just breaking off chunks of a round loaf and munching it without butter or olive oil! I miss that crust.! And for now, I’ll stick to BluWater to satisfy any pizza urges.
