Porky's Pizza Palace - San Leandro

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.

The pizza was wonderful - the crust was the midway point between thin and thick. It was lightly crispy and perfectly chewy. The sauce was well flavored and they were very generous with the toppings. We had black olives and artichoke hearts on ours, Brian had jalapenos and anchovies. The cheese is mozzarella and they aren't stingy with that either.

In short, this is the sort of pizza that I think of when I crave a pie.
