Best Pizza, Pie


3700 Gough St., (410) 276-6787,

This Italian grocery/deli in Highlandtown is better known for its meatball subs than for its pizza. That’s something that should be remedied. The bubbling pies feature house-made toppings—including sausage and fresh mozzarella—and emerge from a brick oven right in the dining area. With their airy, crisp crusts and lack of processed ingredients, these flatbread-style pizzas taste like they were made by someone who cared about you. Try the Lorenzo of Arabia, a baroque confection of eggplant, feta, roasted red peppers, kalamata olives, and broccoli rabe. The Margherita is simple and dreamy. The olive oil pools in pockets of chewy melted fresh mozzarella, amid sweet bursts of grape tomato and strips of fresh basil.
