Eat this: La Pizza in University City

It's no surprise to find other people in the restaurant industry eating at La Pizza. The "pizzerati" know that this U. City hole-in-the-wall has what just might be the best pizza by the slice in town. The hand-tossed dough is made by owner Paul Bishop from a family recipe kept secret even from employees. It's baked until it’s the perfect combination of chewy and crunchy and is adorned with a simple, fresh tomato sauce, 100-percent whole-milk mozzarella and the toppings of your choice. The slice at La Pizza isn't just a reminder of what old-school East Coast pizza is; it's far better than most of the competition – here or anywhere else.
