Apart Pizza Company
This unpretentious thin-crust pizza pie parlor looks like one of those corner spots in Rome where the pizza just seems to melt in your mouth. Thankfully, the storefront and pizza here match in authenticity. So do the names and ingredients of the nineteen pizzas on the menu. To name a few: There’s the Giardinetta, which is topped with fresh tomatoes and arugula. The Francese is made with ham, brie cheese and egg. The Cacciatore includes ham, pepperoni, bacon, onions and garlic. A classic Italian dessert, Sweet Filoncino, is made with house-made dough baked with fruit, chocolate or hazelnut fillings.
