Another Pizzahacker alum has forged ahead with his very own spot devoted to pizzas made with sourdough crust. And, this time, Castro Valley pie snobs are celebrating.
This week, pizzaiolo Amrafel Tomas, who worked as a chef at Pizzahacker in Marin and San Francisco, has opened Pizza the Bay, an artisanal pie shop inside the Castro Valley Marketplace at 3295 Castro Valley Blvd. Together with co-founder, Shimei Burgueno, they offer 14 artisanal pizza ($17-$22) alongside a menu of calzones, chicken wings, salads and sandwiches.
Pizza the Bay is currently in its soft opening, with hours from noon to 9 p.m. Sunday-Thursday and until 10 p.m. Friday-Saturday. A grand opening is slated for Feb. 24. Follow them on Instagram @pizzathebay.
The duo spent six months perfecting their menu in a San Mateo ghost kitchen before opening next to Oculto, the fine dining restaurant on the upper level of the Castro Valley Marketplace. There, you’ll find light, crispy sourdough crusts made with Central Milling flour and topped with everything from Canadian bacon, onions, pineapple, mozzarella and jalapenos (the Mount Diablo) to a spring-centric medley of zucchini, sweet onion, basil and Fresno chili (the Cinque Terre).
The beverage menu features Italian wines by the glass ($9-$12), local beers on draft ($8) and both spirit-forward and spirit-free cocktails ($8-$12). Details: www.pizzathebay.com
