2015 Winner: A4 Pizza

As you’d expect, the pies at this pizza-focused Somerville sib to Cambridge fave Area Four are killer, with a 12-year-old starter giving rise to dough that’s fermented for three days, finished in a custom wood-fired oven and heaped with toothsome toppings, like the soppressata, sausage and bacon of the aptly named Carnivore. But the vibe is equally appetizing, thanks to free-flowing craft beer, music trivia nights, vintage video games and Hoodsie ice cream cups. Did we mention the half-priced slices after 11 pm? It’s our Platonic ideal of a pizza parlor.
