This Coolidge Corner newcomer plates a punchy, short menu in a cool, understated dining room dominated by a wood oven. That beast produces sublime, thin-crusted pies built from nicely conditioned sourdough, yielding just the right amount of edge-and-underside char and chew. Toppings are made from simple, beautiful ingredients like the classic Margherita’s San Marzano tomato sauce, basil and fresh mozzarella. It’s a less-is-more philosophy that would do a Neapolitan pizzaiolo proud.
