There are pizza joints that aspire to be classic pizza places and there are some that have been around long enough to be a classic themselves.
Porky's Pizza Palace in San Leandro is one of the later. It was opened in 1963 and is a landmark on the corner of Manor Boulevard and Farnsworth Street.
We started with cheesy bread which was only okay - the cheese was delicious but the bread could have used some more garlic and butter.
In short, this is the sort of pizza that I think of when I crave a pie.
