Pizza and I are like two peas in a pod. If I'm not eating pizza, I'm eating ice cream, fried chicken, or something remotely glutinous. Luckily, a new pizza joint backed by Chris O'Donnell (yes, the actor!) and Candace Nelson, the owner of Sprinkles, recently opened up within walking distance from my apartment. Unfortunately, this could mean some serious danger in terms of weight gain.
Pizzana is headed by chef Daniele Uditi who grew up in Italy making pizzas. The place is fairly small, with a small outdoor patio eating area and a chef's bar where you can watch the pizzas being made. It's contemporary, simple and clean. The pizzas are what they're known for, offering traditional neapolitan crust that isn't soggy, but rather a nice, chewy texture.

|The pizza comes out and is placed on a pan that has holes to let the steam out, giving a nice crispy crust.|
|Look at how much liver was leftover and we put a lot on our bread. We asked for more and they had to charge us an extra $5 for 4 slices.|
|WOOD FIRED BREAD ($5.00): The bread was delicious, crisp and chewy. Enough said.|
|Peach Crostini with Sprinkles Ice Cream. I thought this dessert was just ok. I loved the ice cream as it was creamy and delicious, but the tart wasn't that great. It wasn't as crispy and decadent as I was hoping.|
