Best Pizza in America: Pizzeria Picco

Best Pizza in America Pizzeria PiccoI was once told that California Pizza Kitchen makes the best pizza in America, I like their pizza but the best pizza in America is found in New York City, right? That is what I thought until I heard of Pizzeria Picco, located in Larkspur, California.

According to one of my all time favorite chefs, Mario Batali, Pizzeria Picco makes the best pizza in America. Recently, I had a chance to visit Pizzeria Picco and it did not disappoint.

You can tell that owner Bruce Hill does not just make pizza, what you get is a thin-crust beauty, a work of love, which magically makes you forget about the amount of carbs and calories it contains.

I need to warn you though, if you ever visit Pizzeria Picco, you have to stay away from the desert. Tell them right away that you do not even want to hear about it. If you do not do that, you are putting yourself at risk of battling more than just a pizza addiction.

I have no idea how Bruce came up with this idea, but his soft vanilla-bean ice cream – which is drizzled with olive oil and sprinkled with coarse sea salt (no, I am not kidding) – marry flavors in such a way that you pretty much want to load the trunk of your car with a few buckets of this stuff.
