What started as a semi-secret pop-up between two college friends from New York looking for pies that tasted like home in the years after Hurricane Katrina is now a local mainstay, and makes some of the best pizza in the city. The crust has that nice little snap when you fold it, and the toppings never overwhelm the simple beauty of the red sauce. Also, you can order by the slice, but if you do, you’ll miss out on the excellent margherita, which only comes as a whole pie. Look for a rotating list of specials, too, like the roasted cauliflower, hot coppa with caramelized onions, or rosemary potato with spicy bechamel. And don’t forget to pick up a salted chocolate chip cookie for dessert.
