This cozy Loop BYOB features stone-oven prepped thin-crust pizzas, which makes for a deliciously crispy crust, plus salads and wraps made with organic and natural ingredients. Look for choices such as sweet fennel sausage with herbs, an Italian cheese blend and tomato sauce; and the Florentine, made with baby spinach, seasoned ricotta cheese, mushrooms, roasted garlic and fresh mozzarella. In addition to a handful of salads, there are a few other healthful choices, including a Heart Smart pizza with roasted veggies and low-fat mozzarella, and a low-carb (pasta-free) roasted veggie lasagna. The folks behind Mista, which has sister locations in Lakeview and Andersonville, have decades of restaurant cred. It's operated by descendents of Luigi Davino, who founded Little Italy's Pompei Bakery back in 1909. (The Davino family sold Pompei several years back; partners there now include David Morton, the son of steakhouse magnate Artie Morton.)
