Pizza in Orange County

A challenge for foodies - can anyone recommend a good pizza place in Orange County? We're from San Francisco but spend a lot of time in Orange County. I'm looking for real brick oven pizza that strikes that perfect balance between thin crust (what America calls thin crust is actually more like a soggy cracker) and fluffy roll (e.g., what Pizza Hut and Domino's calls pizza). Pizza that is thin in the middle but hefty enough to stand up by itself and ends in a nice charred crust at the edge and uses ingredients sparingly. I'll take either a neighborhood fly-by "I'll have a slice of plain slice to go" place or a sit down "We only use San Marzano tomatos on our Margheritas" place. No Slice of New York - was not impressed. No generic chains either please.
Many thanks!
