I've always loved thin crust pizzas, and I've been so excited lately as we have been getting more and more wonderful options in our neighborhood. Cambridge 1 has actually been in Harvard Square for at least a few years. Started by the same guys who own Miracle of Science, Cambridge 1 is a smart, hip pizza joint that serves pizzas grilled over a coal fire.
arugula, shaved parmigiano, extra virgin olive oil, lemon ($8)
For the location and the quality of the food, the prices aren't bad. Typically Bryan and I will share the arugula salad, which is simple, fresh, and just plain good.
Maine lobster, corn, scallion, parmigiano, lemon butter ($13 half/ $24 whole)
Bryan always gets the Maine lobster and corn pizza, which is delicious. You really only need to get a half pizza (pictured above) - the portions are pretty generous.
tomato, fontina, romano, garlic, basil = $7 half / $13 full
I love the #1, the simple Marguerita-like pizza. The crust is nice and thin and crispy while the tomatoes provide a juicy contrast. I actually thought the crust for my pizza was better than the crust for the lobster pizza, which was slightly soggy and weighed down by all those rich ingredients! I love simplicity, and this pizza satisfies me everytime.
I really love this place, and so do many others. On weekends, you may have to wait before being seated. It's worth it though!
