I would like to very much.  It's definitely on my list of places to try the next time I'm in the SF Bay area.  Their crust is sourdough, and if memory serves me correctly, it's baked in a deck oven.  It's roughly similar to LA's Pizzanista in that regard.
Things have never been more like today than they are right now.

I have had pizza from Arizmendi in Oakland, a sister cooperative to Cheeseboard.  It is about 5 minutes from here.  http://www.arizmendibakery.com/about

It has been a long time but I remember it as very good but not at all spectacular.  The other baked goods there are also quite good.

I work near the Cheese Board and go there a fair amount.
They have a pretty unique style...its a sourdough, but very mild. They make a thin crust with some solid weight to it.

They use a decent amount of oil and salt, sometimes a little to much salt.
There's a different choice of toppings each day, and that's the only option, always vegetarian.
Its a pretty tasty pizza.

This would be an interesting clone attempt for sure!
Their main selling point is different types of top notch cheeses and quality/varied toppings.

There's usually a big line during peak hours, but it moves pretty quickly.

Looks like anemic par-cooked frozen pizza crust.

The TV show Pizza Cuz on Cooking channel had a segment on the Cheese Board Collective. I was surprised to learn they bake their pizza on sheet pans.

This video isn't the from Pizza Cuz episode, but you can see the pizzas in the oven at 1:32


I found this photo of their ovens:
