In the midst of everything, Grand Lake Kitchen, the popular Oakland brunch spot, launched a takeout pizza concept called Carbona. They operate out of GLK’s Dimond District location, and specialize in Detroit-style pies, which are, for lack of a better phrase, works of art. So what makes their pizzas stunning? For starters, they’re fluffy and thick, like sheet cake thick or brick thick (in the best way possible), and have chewy crusts with crispy, darkened edges. The pizzas are then covered in marinara sauce and cheese, before getting finished with a range of topping combinations (there are 11 pizzas on the menu). When in doubt, order the pepperoni, which, like all of their pies, is surprisingly fluffy and light despite it looking hefty.
