Pizza e Vino is a pizzeria in Rancho Santa Margarita. The owners make a big deal about the wood-burning oven and ingredients imported from the motherland being certified by some Italian organization or other, but I and three-quarters of eaters don't care about pedigree; we want good pie. You can get it with a sweet tomato sauce or none, with toppings that range from salty anchovies to milky cheeses to enough cuts of pig to make an Iowa farmer rich.
