Best cheeseboard pizzas to try before I leave Berkeley?

scorpsjl May 24, 2010 08:57 PM

Hi all, I'm leaving Berkeley pretty soon (back to the East coast!), in about 2 weeks. I've never eaten Cheeseboard pizza (I've only been here a semester, and so far my Cheeseboarding has been devoted to the cheese+bread store), and I need to decide when to go! Does anyone have any favorites among their "regulars" pizzas? Anything particularly worth a try? I can go more than once, of course...

Also, is there any word that the pizza is going down in quality? When I walk by it often looks unremarkable, a little burnt and with a scant amount of veggies... well, we'll see!

    anything with corn or lime are my favorites, but on any given day I don't think you can go to far wrong. I say just give it a try and keep an open mind.

      It's a very particular and eccentric style, for some people one slice is enough.

      My favorites have probably been the ones including potato or feta among the toppings.

      My absolute favorite is the wild mushroom pie they make only the day before Thanksgiving.

        How much research do you plan to do for a $2.50 investment?
        Just look at this, pick a day and go:

        If I had to make a generalization, they are some heavy pizzas [potato, mushroom, 4cheej],
        and some lighter ones [corn, tomato]. I like both and I dont know what you like.
