Jeff Mahin, the Lettuce Entertain You chef who practically perfected the doughnut at Do-Rite, works similar magic on crust at this sleek artisanal pizza parlor, a sibling of the two in Southern California. He and his team craft a transcendent wheaty vessel that’s chewy in the middle and puffy-crisp at the edges. The roster of toppings includes juicy housemade pork sausage, candied bacon bits, black truffle, and oozy globs of fresh mozzarella. Apparently, there’s always room for more ’za in this town.

Perfect for: Lettuce lovers who’ve slightly outgrown the scene
