2011 Best Pizza, Traditional


A warning sign should be posted on Santarpio’s front door: EAT THESE PIES AT YOUR OWN RISK. Because when those pepperoni-and-sausage-strewn slices hit your table just seconds after being pulled from the oven, you will dive in too quickly, and you will burn your tongue. Oh, the bubbly, runny mozzarella; the tangy sauce slathered on top of the cheese. These pizzas are irresistible. Consider yourself warned.
