  66 Franklin St., in Jack London Square, (510) 268-3200.  L M-F, D daily, Sat-SunBr; $$.  In good weather it’s hard to beat soaking up some rays here on the front deck overlooking the estuary—several fire pits are available--but the inside area is also quite pleasant.  Definitely order the thin-crust pizza.  It is made with unleavened dough and cooked at 800 degrees in an Italian Valoriani oven.  More don’t misses:  Brussels sprouts, flash-fried cheese curds, and housemade ginger beer.
