The modest rack of shelves on Great Lakes western wall plays second fiddle to the highly coveted pizzas.

Try the salad with buttermilk dressing from our 100 Best list: An obsession with detail, an amount of scrutiny seldom applied to lettuce, a superlative, creamy dressing.

The menu consists of only three pizza and the owner makes each individually- with puffy, chewy crust; house-pulled mozzarella; layers of fresh, earthy mushrooms; and an obsessive eye for detail.

Stop in, put your name on the list, and then wait it out at a local watering hole (Hopleaf).

It's a super thin crust pizza with amazing big bubbles. And it's chewy. Just try it. Thank us later.

Thanks to the puffy, chewy crust; the house-pulled mozzarella; layers of earthy mushrooms; and an obsessive eye for detail, the answer, if your mouth isnt already watering, the wait is worth it.

This is one of chef Grant Achatz's favorite dining spots for pizza, which is all made of local, organic ingredients.

Most amazing pizza ever. Delicious. Be sure to try the tomatillo salsa, dante lamb cheese, fresh herb pizza. You won't be disappointed!

Is the pizza worth the wait? Thanks to the puffy, chewy crust; the house-pulled mozzarella; layers of fresh, earthy mushrooms; the answer, if your mouth isnt already watering, is yes.

Heads up, order in advance and bring your patience... This is hand-crafted wonderland, but foodies only.

This is good food. It is a tiny place, it probably seats 20. And: it has the best mushroom pizza you'll eat outside Italy. Mmmmmmmmmmmmm.
