Albuquerque takes pizza very seriously. In fact, I can think of a handful of pizzerias here that make pizza so good that it takes me back to my New York City roots in a very good way. One of the best is Farina Pizzeria & Wine Bar on Central Avenue in East Downtown, Albuquerque.
The wood-fired ovens are the secret to flavorful crusts that any true pizza aficionado will instantly appreciate. The ingredients are fresh, with an emphasis on classic toppings that are perfectly complemented by a well-chosen selection of wines and beers. This is real pizza, done in the classic Italian style, and done well.
