Everyone in town has a favorite pizza place. It’s the little things—the crust, maybe, the tang of the sauce, that one topping you can’t find anywhere else. Pizza Al’s empire is built on those little things. This everyman’s pizza is consistent across all three Morgantown locations—the dough tossed just so, the cheeses carefully selected, the toppings meticulously spread, the ingredients always fresh. The craftsmanship at Al’s outcompetes the chains: Albino Roperti’s pizza is a perennial BOM winner. — JJ
