Few concepts have caught our eye like FCO. This wine bar and pizzeria is a rare commodity in the U.S. because it has been verifi ed by the Verace Pizza Napoletana Association. Pizzas are baked in communal 900-degree wood-fi red ovens and served in its three upscale locations. Here, you’re able to purchase the most classic offering available: a breath-taking Margherita featuring fi or di latte, pomodoro and fresh basil. Salute!

We have to admit we’re a little unsure about this fl edgling pizzeria’s concept, but it is unique. Located in a former Chinese restaurant, this pizzeria is a fusion of Chinese, Oriental, Polynesian & Italian with a 1940s and 1950s feel. Say what? Check this out: pizzas have a distinctive Asian fl are, like the Moo Shu Pork pizza (house and hoisin barbecue pork, vegetables, cabbage and mozzarella) and the Crab Rangoon pizza (a crab Rangoon base with surimi, green onion, asiago and mozzarella cheeses topped with crispy egg roll strips and a sweet chili sauce). Sounds perfect for the undecided diner!

The heartland of America is known more for its rolling wheat fi elds and small towns than its cuisine, but at Pizzeria Adagio, you’re able to fi nd both. The company hand presses its dough into a perfect deep dish offering. We think The Full Symphony makes beautiful music with Italian sausage, pepperoni, Canadian bacon, ground beef, bacon crumbles, bell peppers, mushrooms, tomatoes, black olives, green olives, onions and cheese. Now that’s deep!
