Incredible, tasty, brick oven pizza. Unfortunately, they only sell pies. That said, these paper-thin slices keeps your mouth salivating nonstop. The ratio of cheese to sauce is something like a perfectly balanced scale. But it's the crunchy crust that makes John's pies stand out the most. Don't be surprised if you see celebrities or athletes pop in to indulge in a pie of their own.
