Eastside Road, Healdsburg, March 20, 2009
DOWN TO SANTA ROSA tonight to have dinner with a couple of old friends. No one felt like cooking, so we had a Martini and ordered pizza delivered from Borolo's — one Martinez (cilantro pesto, mozzarella, jack cheese, chicken, Anaheim chiles (mild) and fresh tomato); one North Beach (olive oil and garlic, mozzarella, fontina cheese, prosciutto, and mushrooms). I don't believe that chicken belongs on a pizza, and I certainly don't go for ham, pineapple, kalamata olives, feta, or bean sprouts and peanuts. So we stuck with the North Beach, though I must say the Martinez was surprisngly good. You just never know. Caesar salad on the side, also Borolo's, also good.
