We’re all in with the Neapolitan-style pizza taking the North Shore by storm. From the long, slow rise of the dough to the slam of a blisteringly hot oven, these three spots are all turning out perfect crust—crunchy and light and chewy all at once—but each with their own take on toppings. “Neo-Neapolitan” Bambolina tops their pies with a bevy of local and house-made ingredients, from the classic to the creative, while Short & Main’s ever-changing topping selection is long on hot and spicy. Papa Razzi’s short topping list puts a twist on classic combinations with style.
