Well, over the past couple years we seem to be seeing new Pizzerias opening. Lucky us! They have changed our cravings from thick crusted, piled with ingredients, cheap pizza to a thin crusted, ancient grain pizza topped with home made salamis to brussel sprout leaves. The way to test a new pizzeria on freshness and simplicity is to order their Margherita Pizza – you want to taste the tomatoes and basil and consistency of the crust.
