The Haul: This long-running pizzeria went viral last spring after it was busted for delivering more than extra oregano on its classic old-school pies.
No Libretto or Terroni clone, both of which make a point of not delivering, Gigi now offers a regulation cracker crust, but the Super Special's toppings are strictly 60s: meaty pepperoni and bacon tossed with garden-fresh tomato, green peppers and 'shrooms in lotsa mozza' and sauce. We upgraded the basic deep-dish Sicilian à la vegetarian with garlic, basil and peppers for extra oomph, one inch-thick slice virtually the equal of an entire Super Special.
