Health and sustainability have never gone hand in hand with pizza, mostly because pizza's hands are always weirdly slippery from all that grease. Turning that truth on its head are the real-life-Italian owners of Napizza, who've gutted and revamped the former Vincenzo Ristorante, turning it into a green-certified home for square pies and slices, which're slow-baked for 30min for a lighter, healthier crust.
Making like that chick on The United States of Tara, Napizza's rocking eight signatures like The Locks with smoked salmon/ cream cheese/ capers/ onions and the Amatriciana (crispy bacon, pecorino, signature red sauce), plus allowing customizations using crazy toppers like balsamic reduction and, um, brown rice? If you're not feeling pizza
you're horrible at choosing restos based on names, wrap your fingers around a focaccia panini like the Italia (turkey, fresh mozz, tomato, basil), or sink your sweet teeth into some sweet, sweet Nutella 'za.
Want to know something crazier still? They even have an in-house nutritionist who will advise you on items to order, though once she sees what a greasy mess you are, don't expect her to go anywhere near your hands.
