After hearing friends of ours repeatedly recommend Fresco Wood Oven Pizzeria, my husband and I went to try it out. Fresco Wood Oven Pizzeria is a small pizzeria with only about seven tables inside. Fresco opened in 2010 and is serving up some of the finest New York-style thin crust pizza.

Fresco Wood Oven Pizzeria cooks the New York style thin crust pizza in a wood burning oven. The
thin crust pizza is cooked at high temps (750 degrees F) and is done in just a couple minutes. And, the end result is a thin crust that is slightly crispy, yet easy to "fold," topped with bubbling melted cheese and other authentic Italian toppings. New-York style pizza snobs may not be thrilled that the crust isn't playing card-thin like some NY-style enthusiasts prefer, but I thought the thickness was perfect. Fresco Wood Oven Pizzeria offers the usual pizza toppings, but also has unique selections available such as basil, proscuitto, pecorino, caciocavallo, provolone, ricotta, arugula and more.
Fresco Wood Oven Pizzeria uses quality ingredients you can taste. One that stood out to me was the sauce. It's more zesty than sweet, has a perfect consistentcy (not too thick and not too runny), and adds great flavor. Perhaps the best pizza sauce I've tasted.
