Old Fourth Ward Pizza
Grant and Marie suggested Old Fourth Ward Pizza for a get-together and, as always, they were spot-on. O4W Pizza is a newcomer at Irwin Street Market. They have the coolest address on the Web: krustco.com. The owners hail from the Garden State which explains their mastery of the tomato pie.
This is Grandma's pizza, one superb pizza. It has a very thin crust so it isn't a Sicilian. The sauce is the star. It perfectly balances acidity and sweetness to bring out all the flavors in the tomatoes. I'm not sure where they get their basil leaves but they were an amazing highlight. The cheese is superb. The crust is very thin with the right balance of chewiness and crispiness. This pizza came out of the oven so hot that it melted our plastic forks. I will warn you that the edges are a little easier to eat than the middle pieces. The bit of crust adds stability to the slice and allows you keep it extended. I had to resort to knife and fork for the inner pieces.
