The hottest pizza ticket in town lies in an off-radar location east of Santa Croce. Be prepared to wait in line to sample masterful pizzaiuolo Giovanni Santarpia's authentic Neapolitan pies, frequently hailed by local cognoscenti as being the best in Florence. Baked with dough that is risen for a minimum of 48 hours in a wood oven (of course), they come with a thin and light, puffy crust; choose between classics like margherita (with tomato, buffalo mozzarella, and basil) or a simple marinara (tomato, garlic, and oregano), and innovative toppings such as squash and pancetta.
