Fodor's Expert Review Extra Virgin Oven
Known to locals as EVO, this Park Circle pizzeria is considered by many to be the area's best, doling out Neapolitan-style pies with super-thin and crunchy crusts. The Food Network chose EVO's pistachio pesto pie—containing goat, mozzarella, and Parmesan cheese on a pesto base whipped up with olive oil, salt, and pistachios—as the state's best slice. Another favorite is the pork trifecta pizza, a meat-tastic dish made with house-made sweet sausages, pepperoni, and smoked bacon. EVO also relies on local and regional purveyors for produce like grape and heirloom tomatoes and lettuce. There's a bonus: you're guaranteed a nice variety of craft brews like Holy City's Chucktown Follicle Brown and Westbrook's White Thai witbier.
