Authentic Neopolitan Pizza in... Kansas City?

True, Kansas City probably isn't the first American city that comes to mind in the debates over "best" and most "authentic" pizzas in the United States, but don't tell that to Erik Borger, chef and owner of Il Lazzarone, or his loyal customers... or even to the American Delegation of the Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletan, which has certified his pizza as authentically Neapolitan.

Borger, who also makes his own mozzarella, cooks the pizzas over white oak in a wood-fired oven built in—where else?—Naples. At this location, the bar has 50 craft beers on tap.
