Hungry for a slice of pie? Get yourself to Lakewood – Ah Badabing pizza, a hole-in-the-wall pizza joint near the intersection of 100th and Bridgeport. You’ll see the sign for Ah Badabing right about the moment you pass the restaurant, so pay attention. The strip-mall restaurant is tiny and smells terrific in only that yeasty-garlicky way pizzerias can.

The restaurant makes its pie with a few different crusts: A puffier crust described as “Washington style” and a thinner New York style pizza (that one is built on an 18-inch crust). When ordering, be sure to specify New York style if that’s how you like your pie.

Whichever crust you order, do make it a pepperoni pie. I appreciated the sharp tomato sauce and molten layer of mozzarella. A pepperoni 12-inch pie will run you $11.
