Arizmendi Bakery and Pizzeria 4301 San Pablo Ave./43nd St., (510) 547-0550. M 7-3, Tu-F 7-7, Sat-Sun 8-7.
Located in a sort of strip mall with plenty of parking in back, this worker-owned cooperative is named for a Spanish priest who established worker-owned co-ops in the Basque region of Spain. Organic flour and natural ingredients are used to prepare vegetarian and vegan pastries, cookies, breads, and particularly good pizza. A different slice pizza is available hot each day after 11:30 a.m. When I was here it was a surprisingly delicious roasted cauliflower with cilantro. More varieties of whole pizzas and bake-at-home pizzas are also available, and you can call to reserve one. Organic coffees and teas are also served. A few tables are provided inside, but many more are outside on a sheltered patio.
