Baraonda Ristorante & Bar
Atlanta is blessed with a wide range of pizzerias, from Chicago-style deep dish to the razor-thin, New York-style crust, and, more to the point, the fancy-pants gourmet style that’s still all the rage. Within this genre, we confess to falling truly, madly, deeply in love with Midtown’smore...
Atlanta is blessed with a wide range of pizzerias, from Chicago-style deep dish to the razor-thin, New York-style crust, and, more to the point, the fancy-pants gourmet style that’s still all the rage. Within this genre, we confess to falling truly, madly, deeply in love with Midtown’s BARAONDA. Baraonda takes the concept of the Neapolitan-style pizza to another level, spoiling us with crisp crusts and prodigious toppings. (A recent lunch pie was completely covered by a garden of arugula.) The wood-burning oven puts a perfect spin on these pizzas, which rarely, if ever, burden the stomach. less...

Appetizers are a transcendental experience at FRITTI. Anyone who has ever ordered the funghi fritti (fried mushrooms) knows what we're talking about.

Appetizers are a transcendental experience at FRITTI. Anyone who has ever ordered the funghi fritti (fried mushrooms) knows what we're talking about. Just thinking about those crunchy morsels tinged with rosemary makes us close our eyes and smile. And then there's the gossamer fried calamari. Forget the heavy dipping sauces. A spritz of lemon is all they need. But wait! Don't fill up on apps and forgo the Neapolitan-style pizzas. A blistered, crackery crust supports well-paired toppings - pancetta with caramelized onions and taleggio cheese with apples and pairs are two standouts - though the staff has softened over the years and lets you concoct your own combos as well. less...

Decisions, decisions. Should we order the stracchinella with the sweet Italian sausage melding into the pliant cheese, or the gorgonzola and pineapple combo brightened with a dash of balsamic vinegar? The pizza variations at FRITTI are elegant and endless. Skilled, muscled pizza makers and two monolithic ovens in the center of the restaurant collaborate to produce the city's most delicious pies, delicately crackly around the fringe and crowned with just the right sum of ingredients. Request a spot on the patio. Between the couples with toddlers and the disheveled urban hipsters, you'll blend right into the crowd. "309 N.

New York has its gooey, zesty slices and Chicago has its deep-dish tradition. It seems Atlanta, though, has become a city where you can get a darn good pizza in the style of Naples: thin, crackly crust sized for one person, with a restrained amount of pedigreed toppings. FRITTI started the trend, and they're still unsurpassed. Top variations on our list include the basic margherita with buffalo mozzarella and a sprinkling of basil; caramelized onions, pancetta and red pepper flakes; and slightly aggressive tallegio cheese with apples and pears (sometimes we eat this one for dessert). Start with some of the nibbly fried appetizers that lend the restaurant its name. "309 N. Highland Ave., 404-880-9559. www.frittirestaurant.com" less...

Local pizza aficionados still have to travel to New York or Chicago for a serious pie, and sorrow over the recent closing of C.K.'s Grilled Pizza in Norcross is still fresh. But for an artful Neapolitan pizza, FRITTI is the best in town. Conveniently close to our offices, "CL" staffers pow-wow here over lunch, digging into crispy, burnt-edged pies topped with pancetta, caramelized onions and red pepper, or nurse a drink at the snazzy bar on Fridays after a long work week.

3375 Holcomb Bridge Road, Norcross 770-441-1254 http://www.cksgrilledpizza.com/ckpizza.htm Winner of several international competitions, C.K.'s pizza is worth every mile of the drive to its humble, occasionally crowded Norcross location. From the crispy, smoky wood-grilled crusts to the generous, decorative use of herbs, C.K.'s pies persistently expand your conception of the potential for pizza. Especially yummy are the Gamberian with its shrimp, pesto and sun-dried tomatoes; the New Orlean with crawdads, Andouille sausage and apricot glaze; and the Portabellan with prosciutto, mushrooms and roasted garlic. less...

When you're ordering delivery, such considerations as freshness, presentation and variety of toppings are of secondary importance. Lucky for us lazy folks, Papa John's delivers pizza made as if they were primary concerns. Don't be misled, however. Papa John's is a conservative pizza place; sundried tomatoes, portabello mushrooms and artichoke hearts are "out there" ingredients. Hawaiian pizza — with Canadian bacon and pineapples — is as far out as Papa John's gets. Added bonuses: the gratis pepperoncinis and garlic butter dipping sauce for the crust. less...

Dough is kneaded by actual humans and stretched into moon shapes, launched into the air like flying saucers, filled and properly baked. The result? Ethereal crusts supporting homemade sauces and fresh, high-quality ingredients. Among the wide selection of pizza toppings and calzone fillings at this slightly bent independent in Little Five Points, look for these top combinations: tomato-basil with three cheeses, white-on-white, red-on-red, the delectable Mediterranean and the honest-to-Palermo vegetarian. Good for takeout. less...

Delivering to the hub of hip Atlanta (Little Five Points, Midtown, Virginia-Highland, Candler and Inman parks), Savage Pizza breaks a thin, New York-style pizza down to its basic elements and overwhelms you with possibilities.

Pizza specialties range from Tomato Basil to Cajun, with shrimp and andouille sausage, and Mexican refried beans with jalapeos and sour cream. less...
