Since firing up its ovens in 2007, Dove Vivi has drawn crowds with crispy cornmeal pizza crust and weird toppings like corn and butternut squash. Pies are offered at $20 for a whole and $10 for a half, but that ruins half the fun of what makes Dove Vivi a hit—experimentation. With slices made to order (at $3.75 each) from an everyday menu, it’s easy to please picky palates with the Pepperoni Classico or Quatro Formaggio, while the corn-covered slices and spicy housemade sausage add pizzazz. A rotating menu of daily specials is a bit friskier, boasting such anomalies as ham and pear, chorizo, golden chanterelle and a colorful cast of pies both strange and traditional. It’s a virtual pizza lab offering something for every taste…. Just be sure to grab a glass of wine, as even slices take 20 minutes to cook, and get ready to play willing guinea pig to the mad experiments. AP KRYZA.
