Sullivan Street Bakery founder Jim Lahey is one of the country's elite bread bakers, so when he decided to open a pizza place, it was huge news. Toppings at Co. (a.k.a. Company) are remarkable, like the fresh spinach on the three-cheese Popeye'a favorite of chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten's, one of Co.'s owners. But what people can't stop talking about is the crust: Made with Lahey's famous no-knead dough, it's both chewy and crisp, and ever-so-slightly tangy.
