This one is a toughie, because we have become a mecca for top-notch pizza. But Due Forni Pizza and Wine wins because it boasts two ovens from Naples and the creative juices of chef Carlos Buscaglia (formerly of Fiamma). The restaurant does two types of crust: Neapolitan, which is yeasty and medium-thick; and Roman, a cracker-thin version. Pizza Due Forni ($16) is San Marzano tomatoes, buffalo mozzarella, homemade sausage, Nueske’s bacon and piquillo peppers on the crust of your choice. Wow! 3555 Town Center Drive, 586-6500.
