The ultimate pizza ovens are built by hand, reach astounding temperatures, retain heat, and, as a bonus, look fantastic.

#1.  Ancora; New Orleans

Located on one of NOLA’s best foodie streets (Freret), Ancora serves the city’s first authentic Neapolitan-style pizza. Chef Jeff Talbot bakes them in his prized multicolored Stefano Ferrara oven. To store toppings near the mouth of the oven,
Talbot uses a table made out of old whiskey barrels and designed by Chip Martinson, the husband of F&W Best New Chef 1989 Susan Spicer.

Must try: The Bianca, topped with fior di latte (a fresh, creamy mozzarella made from cow milk rather than water buffalo milk), fresh basil, olives, garlic and chile. ancorapizza.com
