“The pizza is FANTASTIC. The crust is crisp on the bottom with an audible crunch. Light and airy, or "pillowy" as they say, with a really nice char around the edges from the high-heat oven. It's served on a perforated pizza dish, which keeps the crust crisp throughout the meal. The sauce is flavorful, bright and acidic, but not gloopy or overpowering. And the cheese is creamy but not too greasy.” - Yelp Review
