1. Za 350 Third St, Cambridge, MA 02142 (Kendall Square)

Za is whipping up unique, decidedly high-brow pizzas in an industrial-chic space adjacent to sister restaurant, EVOO. The pan-baked pies clock in around 10-inches, which means they're basically personal, and the topping combinations rotate frequently based on the availability of fresh, locally sourced ingredients. Past hits have ranged from updated takes on traditional pies, like mushroom and peppers with goat cheese, to seasonal varieties, like one topped with butternut squash puree, caramelized onions, apple butter, and cloumage and cheddar cheeses. Despite the artisanal nature of Za's menu and fancifully plated appetizers like avocado salad and charcuterie, the atmosphere remains friendly and casual.
