​Like inking an image of your beloved basenji across your left pec, developing a distinctive pizza is an act of self-expression for many chefs in San Francisco. At Orson, the thin-crust pies are beautiful expressions of classic Cal-cuisine pizzology, the reason we tagged them the city's upscale finest in SF Weekly's Best of San Francisco 2010. Exceptionally talented baker Josh Capone spins a crust that bubbles and blisters in the gas-fired oven, under daily-changing toppings that skew farmers' market seasonal.

Orson 508 Fourth St. (at Bryant), 777-1508.
