Timber Pizza got its start with a mobile wood-fired oven at farmers markets, so it’s no surprise that local ingredients play prominent parts in its permanent Petworth home. “Neapolitan-ish” pies are dressed up with seasonal vegetables plus nontraditional toppings like pumpkin seeds or hot-pepper/nectarine jam. Order at the counter, then settle in at one of the communal picnic tables, at barstools, or on the indoor porch swing for a lucky two. The copper-domed oven in the center of the rustic-industrial dining room isn’t just for pizzas—empanadas and waffle cones for gelato sundaes get a fiery touch as well. Inexpensive.
Also great: Butternut-squash empanadas; slow-roasted-pork-and-pickled-jalapeño pizza; “the Turu” pizza (salami, apples, and hot-pepper jam); “Green Monster” pizza (pesto, feta, zucchini, and kale).
