What to get: Diavola pizza with tomato sauce, sweet and jalapeño peppers, red onion, mozzarella, and sausage; Diosa pizza with fresh basil, chopped tomatoes, mozzarella, ricotta, and pine nuts; and traditional Salvadoran carne deshilada, a pile-up of marinated flank steak, fried eggs, tomatoes, onions, peppers, rice, and beans.

Best for: Those who think that going out for a good pizza needn’t be a serious pursuit.

Insider tip: The restaurant makes deliveries, a rarity for this caliber of pie.
