I love thick, chewy pizza crust and consider extra cheese essential. So, I did not expect much when my boyfriend and I tried Pizza Antica in Lafayette on Friday. Pizza Antica specializes in thin-crust Neapolitan-style pizza and, to my surprise, I loved every bite. A good reminder to try new things!

We had two pizza variations, the margarita and a more ambitious version with pancetta, radiccio, goat cheese and pesto. The best feature of both pizzas was the crust: thin yet sturdy enough to stay crisp, with a few tasty little burned spots. Each bite of crust revealed a good dose of olive oil and coarse salt. Since the crust was the star, we enjoyed the margarita pizza the most as its simple toppings did not overpower. The pancetta pizza toppings was earthy and delicious, but the crust flavor was sometimes lost.

We also had a fried artichoke appetizer, which consisted of smallish pieces of heart fried in a fairly thick crust and served with a lemon aoili. It was fine, but next time I'd rather have more pizza!

Service was brisk and friendly. The room was loud but not overwhemingly so. Will defintiely go back soon.
