On fire, indeed. The compact igloo-shaped oven crackles with applewood, hickory, and maple flames that scorch up to four pizzas at a time. Sicilian-born pizzaiolo Elio Bartolotta handcrafts each one, lovingly applying ultrafresh toppings—whether basil, eggplant, mozzarella, mushrooms, plum tomatoes, spinach, or zucchini—and supervising the constant traffic in and out of the oven. The guy never misses a beat: Each ingredient is perfectly blistered, grilled, melted, or caramelized. And he even uses the scrap dough to make panini. 445 W. Lake St., Addison, 630-628-0088
