This smoked trout rillette was really refreshing. It was bright and punchy and fun to eat. I would spread some of the rillette on the bread, embed some of the fried capers into it, and top it with an apple slice. Fun and tasty finger food!

Parisian grilled flatbread pizza – Yield Wine Bar

Parisian grilled flatbread pizza - Yield Wine Bar
With caramelized onions, brie, Granny Smith apple, fresh thyme and mixed greens. Happy hour $11
Yield Wine Bar, San Francisco CA

Wow, I loved all the flavors and ingredients on this flatbread pizza, but it was WAY too soggy and difficult to eat. Between the caramelized onions, melted brie, super thin crust and overload toppings, the slices seemed to dissolve and was impossible to pick up or eat with your hands. I’m a fan of thin crusts (less carbs), but it has to be balanced with the right amount of toppings. And I guess the mixed greens never made the plate! This didn’t quite work for me. I did love the space and our server was really great and friendly though.
