BEST GOURMET PIZZA: The Gourmet Pizza Company

How good is the pie from Gourmet Pizza Company? The Planet editorial staff devoured two pizzas every Wednesday, without fail, for months. The gooey discs, with their excellent toppings and a crust and sauce combination that delivers a savory garlic zing, taste exactly as the name implies. (Typical New York-style thin crust this ain’t.) Specialty pies include the chicken smoked gouda and the steak gorgonzola pizza. Even the calzones and salads are terrific. Just try and not overdo it. 610 S.
