The Best Pizza in Town
Here are 11 places to try. Now tell us who we left out.
If you like an unpretentious neighborhood eatery that sells pizza by the slice and pies named after local high school sports teams, Old Dominion delivers. (Plus, it literally delivers within a 2-mile radius.) Located in the former Upper Crust space, this newcomer turns out traditional New York-style ’za, as well as rectangular “grandma style” pies. The latter are baked in a 1-inch pan with olive oil and cornmeal for a crust that’s slightly thicker and crunchier but “not as heavy and dense as Sicilian style,” says co-owner John Rodas (he also co-owns The Spirits of ’76 in Clarendon), who opened the shop in January with chef Charles Smith. For a sweet-salt-spicy kick, try The Patriot (go Yorktown!), with pepperoni, oregano and Mike’s Hot Honey. Gluten-free cauliflower crust is also available.
