That’s Outta Sight

-

That’s Outta Sight is a pizza popup by longtime Bay Area chef Eric Ehler, who has worked at higherend restaurant­s like Mister Jiu’s and Serpentine and most recently consulted for the fastcasual Chinese American concept Lazy Susan. He’s been running the popup biweekly, offering a limited amount of pizzas the last few months at Pizzahacke­r on Mission Street. Beginning in May, he’ll be moving his operation to the Hayes Valley wine bar Fig & Thistle, where he’ll be able to produce up to 80 pizzas per day with a focus on large, thin, New Yorkstyle pies and slices. “Slice culture is beautiful,” Ehler said. “You can grab a quick slice and walk/skate away with it and crush it in seconds. … It is the ultimate street food.”

Ehler does a white pie using a roasted mushroom sauce, and a Madonna, his version of a margherita that gets finished with oregano, grana Padano, lots of basil and a generous glug of California olive oil. “I named my pizza after Madonna because it is beautiful, classy but with attitude, graceful imperfecti­ons, and not afraid to be individual — each pizza is different.”

Cost: $17-$24; $5 per slice. Website: instagram.com/thatsoutta­sight Address: Pizzahacke­r: 3299 Mission St., San Francisco. Fig & Thistle (starting May), 429 Gough St., San Francisco.
