Is there any terrific pizza in OC?

I love terrific pizza...the kind I've had in New York City and in Tuscany. I have yet to find anything other than mediocre pizza in OC. Please don't send me to Pizzeria Ortica! I may be in the minority, but I personally can't stand the mushy limp and floppy center of their supposedly typical Neopolitan pizza. To me it tastes like uncooked dough or worse. Please let's not make this thread about why I don't understand their product...just help me find something that I'll like more. I generally like relatively thin crust pizza with a generous and chewy edge...and terrific traditional toppings, cheese, tomatoes, salume, sausage, greens, etc. To please me, the toppings must be outstanding and the crust slightly crispy centrally and chewy toward the periphery. Any suggestions?

Pizzeria Ortica
650 Anton Boulevard, Costa Mesa, CA 92626
