Daily Slice: Pizzeria il Fico, Los Angeles

Slice Kelly Bone 3 comments

A year and a half ago I sat at the counter of Pizzeria il Fico, as eager owner/partner John Tierney waxed on about turning this little slice of Robertson Blvd. into a neighborhood hang out. I nodded my head politely even though I though the environment seems too upscale for this. I was wrong. More

Daily Slice: Tre Truffle at The Urban Oven, Los Angeles

Slice Kelly Bone 2 comments

I got my first whiff of the The Urban Oven last year at Chris Bianco's booth at LA Loves Alex's Lemonade. There, Scott Tremonti worked side by side with Chris, for what I later learned was the first time ever. Chris began offering guidance to Scott, and his pizzas have been consistently improving ever since. More

Daily Slice: Parziale's Bakery, Boston

Slice Meredith Smith 8 comments

thought I had the pizza scene all mapped out in Boston's North End. But there was one Italian pizza staple missing from list: the bakery slice. And the missing shop I had previously overlooked, Parziale's Bakery, provides the missing piece of the pie. More

Daily Slice: Pizza Rustica at Avellino's, East Hanover NJ

Slice Casey Barber 3 comments

Looking for a classic example of pizza rustica (also known as Italian Easter bread or pizza gain)? You'll find a great specimen of the meaty, cheesy, eggy two-crust pie at Avellino's in East Hanover, NJ. More

Daily Slice: The Pizza Press, Anaheim, CA

Slice Kelly Bone 5 comments

Stranded at a seminar in Anaheim, I bypassed the hotel buffet and walked down Harbor Blvd to The Pizza Press. Situated directly across the street from Disneyland, the former Quiznos was converted into a(nother) fast causal pizzeria. Opened in June 2012, the name references the newspaper theme of the shop—which looks nothing like, but reminds me of a 90's Subway—and the press used to par-bake the crust. More

Daily Slice: Cafe Angelino, Los Angeles

Slice Kelly Bone 2 comments

When I come across Angelinos who yearn for authentic* Italian pizza, they often name Cafe Angelino as their favorite. Authentic, in this case, does not denote doughy, wood-fired Neapolitan pies. Cafe Angelino serves a thin crisp-crusted pizza reminiscent of any corner cafe from any region of Italy. More

Daily Slice: Margherita at Wiseguy NY Pizza in Washington, DC

Slice Brian Oh 11 comments

You'd be forgiven for being wary of a pizzeria that claims to be the best New York style pizza outside of New York and also has the word, "Fuhgeddaboudit!!!," emblazoned all over it, but I'm here to allay your skepticism. More

Daily Slice: Plain-Jane Cheese at Coffaro's in South River, NJ

Slice Casey Barber 2 comments

Coffaro's in South River, NJ, has been a community fixture for more than 60 years, but its basic cheese pie doesn't come with bells and whistles. More

Daily Slice: Evolution of the Amore oi Mari at Pizzicletta in Flagstaff, AZ

Slice Lance Roberts 16 comments

Caleb Schiff started out with great pizza, but in the eighteen months since opening, the pies at Pizzicletta have only gotten better. Need proof? Have a look at the transformation of the Amore oi Mari. More

Daily Slice: The Rivington at Delancey, Los Angeles

Slice Kelly Bone 3 comments

When looking for NYC style pizza in LA, Delancey rarely comes up. Perhaps because Delaney is not a direct interpretation of a particular style. They capture the classic New York/Jersey pizzeria feel, but remain aware of their Hollywood address. More

Daily Slice: Lahmacun in Istanbul

Slice Carey Jones 10 comments

While I prefer the puffy, chewy dough of pide, Turkey's other pizzalike foodstuff, I'm also quite fond of lahmacun. Popular in Istanbul, as it is in much of the Middle East, it's a thin, thin crust topped with minced meat, ground peppers, and herbs, and often spritzed with lemon juice. More

Daily Slice: Fig and Arugula Pide at Momed, Los Angeles

Slice Kelly Bone 2 comments

Pizza or not, the crust at Momed remains one of the better in Los Angles. Inspired by the Turkish pide (recently reviewed), it cradles toppings and flavors analogous to pizza. More

Daily Slice: Pide in Istanbul

Slice Carey Jones 10 comments

Take an oven-hot pepperoni pizza, but with the edges folded over into a boat-like shape, and the pepperoni swapped out for garlicky, cumin-y sucuk. What you have is a most excellent pide at Şimşek Pide Salonu, one of many fantastic recommendations from the good folks at Istanbul Eats. More

Daily Slice: The Sicilian at Nino's, Harrison NJ

Slice Casey Barber 3 comments

If not the best in New Jersey, the Sicilian slice at Nino's in Harrison is most definitely in the top five. And I say that as someone who's not particularly a fan of the Sicilian style most days. More

Daily Slice: Lydia Shire's Famous Lobster Pizza at Scampo, Boston

Slice Liz Bomze 6 comments

The 10-inch pie is ultra-thin and delicate with a blistered, bubbly, crisp-chewy edge, but the topping is anything but light: heavy cream, caramelized shallots and garlic, and the meat of a two-pound lobster, plus handfuls of ricotta salata and Parmesan. In other words, its like pizza topped with lobster bisque. More

Daily Slice: Baby Doll Pizza, Portland, Oregon

Slice Jim Bonomo 6 comments

A new Portland, OR slice shop is cooking up the most accurate representation of NYC style so far More

Daily Slice: Roasted Tomatoes at The Churchill, Los Angeles

Slice Kelly Bone 1 comment

A year ago I had impressive cocktails and much less impressive pizzas at The Churchill, but never made it back. A recent revamp brought Chef Bruce Kalman—formally of Urbano Pizza Bar—on board elevating food to match the cocktails. More

Daily Slice: Southern Pacific Brewing, San Francisco

Slice Lauren Sloss 1 comment

Per the topping-centric rule, the crust is serviceable, but nothing to write home about. And this is a topping choice we can certainly get on board with—the sprouts and onions are joined by a salty, satisfying feta fonduta, and a melty pile of mozzarella. More

Daily Slice: The Frankford Taco at Pizza Brain, Philadelphia

Slice Hawk Krall 13 comments

Pizza Brain, the World's First / Largest Pizza Museum and restaurant that opened last month here in Philadelphia, is kicking it up a notch with the "Frankford Avenue Taco" ($5) that consists of a slice of cheese pizza topped with a big scoop of pizza-flavored ice cream from the restaurant's conjoined Little Baby's Ice Cream counter. More

Daily Slice: Grilled Asparagus Bianco at Cucina Urbana, San Diego

Slice Erin Jackson 1 comment

Asparagus may get top billing on this pizza from Cucina Urbana, but the dominant flavor comes from the more savory toppings: crisp garlic chips and red chili flakes. More
