Sottocasa’s pizza achieves that rare, perfect crust texture: chewy, but not soggy, charred, but not crusty. It’s surprising more people don’t know about this place, given that the pies are pretty incredible. So take this knowledge and remember it the next time you want to eat a pizza that will make you feel like you’re in Italy. The setting might not be quite as picturesque as somewhere there, but it’s great for a low-key weeknight dinner.
