Best Pizzeria You’re Probably Not Eating At

10417 Armory Ave., Kensington, Md., (301) 832-1065
Sorry, city dwellers, but you have to hop into a car or ride a MARC train if you want to try some of the greatest ’za in the area. Pizzaiolo and owner Frank Linn of Frankly…Pizza! in Kensington, Md., is turning out pies that feature bouncy, char-bubbled crust similar to the Neapolitan tradition. However, he tops them like a New Yorker with a slightly sweet red sauce and plenty of mozz, plus a little Pecorino Romano. His specialty rounds are particularly swoon-worthy. One with house-cured guanciale, mushrooms, and porcini salt is a rich, umami bomb of gluttonous delight—though you can’t go wrong with the classic pepperoni either.
