With a few exceptions, Amercanized pizza is not D.C.’s strong suit. While a few places — most notably Wiseguy and Vace — fight the perception that Washington is weak when it comes to New York-style slices, the District is more of a stronghold for Neapolitan pizzas that showcase imported ingredients and fitfully fermented doughs.
While 2 Amys is the OG, Menomale and Pupatella are both gunning for the title of best pizza in the area. Stellina Pizzeria is expected to open by the end of the winter, adding another contender to the mix. With old-school square-pan pizza and jumbo slices, respectively, Ledo and Duccini’s represent their own brand of regional delicacies.
