Clearly Richmond has a variety of crust preferences given readers' top choices for pie. Ever since Bottoms Up began serving its thick-crusted meal of a pizza, it's inspired legions who put up with challenging parking for the pleasures of deep dish with a train-whistle soundtrack. Carytown's Mary Angela's is such a longstanding institution that for many locals its pie defines pizza. The upstart is the thin-crusted Napoletana-style made in Stuzzi's beautiful Venetian glass oven certified by the Italians as authentic. Pies cook in about 90 seconds, meaning practically instant gratification when you need a margherita pizza fix fast.
