Pizzeria Picco Prevails

A few weekends ago the husband and I did one of our favorite Bay Area things. We hiked the Dawn Falls trail and then had dinner at Pizzeria Picco. I know I've written about this before but it really is awesome to get out on that beautiful trail (especially in later winter when the falls are abundant!) and then cozy up near the wood-burning oven in Pizzeria Picco's tiny space for some amazing food. We both agreed that even though we always love dinner there, somehow this time the food was even better than it's ever been. Magic? Too much fresh air in our city-dwelling brains? Who knows, but, um, YUM.

We started with the warm olives. Lemon, rosemary, and garlic goodness right there. So tasty.

Then we both got their signature "Marinara" pizza. It is a simple tomato sauce pie that comes already cheese-less and it is just so wonderful. The dough? Perfect. The sauce? Perfect. The fact that you can top any pie at PP with a salad? Brilliant, and the "Rocket Man" which is simply arugula with olive oil, is the perfect addition the this one.

So there you have it. Another fantastic time at Pizzeria Picco. Up next, I go back to an old fave and go crazy ordering new stuff. Stay tuned!
