Life of Pie Pizza Restaurant Review: Head to Life of Pie to savor delightfully thin-crusted artisan pizzas topped with measured portions of tomato sauces and cheeses and carefully selected toppings. The crusts, lightly charred on the outside and chewy and moist on the inside, are the product of a gigantic, handmade wood-fired pizza oven imported from Naples with bricks bonded together with mortar made from the volcanic ash of Mount Vesuvius. Although the pizza list is limited, any of the imaginative combinations are worth ordering, and size-wise all are on the “large” side of personal. Purists may like the margherita (just $5 per slice until 6 p.m.) or the fennel sausage with Mama Lil's hot peppers. More daring eaters will enjoy the bacon-goat cheese combo with roasted leeks or the seasonal mushrooms with shaved pecorino and truffle oil. And don't miss some of the best arancini (fried rice balls stuffed with cheese) in town, or the kale and arugula salad dressed with a honey-lemon vinaigrette and a sprinkling of toasted breadcrumbs. Plump meatballs are also tasty. There's a nice selection of wines for $6 per glass.
