The Margherita pizza

The guys behind the “Extra Virgin Oven” must be math whizzes, because they’ve figured out the formula for the perfect pie. Their ratio of homemade sauce or pesto to fresh, seasonal ingredients equals some of the best wood-fired pizzas this side of the Atlantic. Add hand-pulled mozzarella, goat cheese, or cow’s-milk ricotta, then multiply the flatbread crust by just the right amount of char, and you’ll be counting down to your next slice. They’ve even raised hog to the third power with the ever-popular “Pork Trifecta.” 1075 East Montague Ave., North Charleston, (843) 225-1796,
