Wood-fired, Neapolitan pies in the heart of Chicago Ave..
Minneapolitans love them some Neapolitan pizzas. Nestled at the corner of Chicago and 47th, in the same building as Turtle Bread Co., is Pizza Biga, serving up thin-crust, brick-oven pizzas bubbling with fresh mozzarella and tomatoes. This little spot almost always has immediate seating. The vibe at Biga is always intimate and candle-lit.
I had the pizza margherita... thought the crust was superb, sauce was a little tart. Next time I think I'll try one of the pizzas with more toppings. The caesar salad was great -- clean, fresh, simple. Nice ambiance too.
