Spacca Napoli; Chicago

The beehive-shaped oven at this Neapolitan pizzeria was built on-site by third- and fourth-generation members of an artisanal oven-making family from Naples—owner Jonathan Goldsmith keeps mum on the artisans’ last name. “It’s a family secret,” he says. The wood-burning oven was modeled after the communal ovens of ancient Pompeii. Its mosaic of wheat is made with Venetian glass tiles and was inspired by an image of a coin in Le Antiche Monete di Neapolis, a book about the ancient money of Greek Naples. Must try: The Diavola, topped with mozzarella di bufala, spicy salami, red pepper flakes and fresh basil.
