Best Pizza - 2006
Readers' Choice: Little Star
This tiny spot turns out handmade pizzettas, pizzas for one with amazingly thin, crisp crusts that come out of the oven in irregular ovals, topped, perhaps, with nettles, lamb sausage, faintly peppery pea shoot tendrils, and two eggs sunny side up, their yolks still soft enough to ooze golden-orange richness when cut into. We also have fond memories of an ethereal pepperoni pizzetta. You can start with a lovely organic salad and finish with artisanal cheeses or a flourless chocolate cake made with Scharffen Berger chocolate. And on a fine day all this can be enjoyed at a mosaic-topped table set outside on the sidewalk under a leafy tree.
