Calvitto's is one of our favorites for pizza strips—generous amounts of sauce and a crust that's not too chewy. They also have white pizza strips (no sauce or cheese, just foccaccia bread with a sprinkling of herbs, garlic, and red pepper—chewy and spicy) and "dressed" pizza strips (strips with toppings like pepperoni, black olives, etc.). If you need a party box, remember to call ahead—or risk getting the evil eye from the counter lady!
