A true gem amid the many touristy cafes in Houhai, Hutong Pizza is well hidden down a sliver of an alley. This tiny courtyard restaurant has a big reputation in Beijing for its delicious, square pizzas. After following the writing on the wall and drawing back the huge black curtain, you will be greeted with tables dotting a charming fishpond. Many a first date has taken place here. Once a Buddhist nunnery, the pizzeria now offers succor of a different kind. Its perfect, thin-crust margherita pizza is simplicity itself. If you like to accessorize then try the three cheese-pizza or load it up with meat, veggies and any other topping you can think of. Those of you on a diet can try the smaller, Brooklyn-quality calzones, which are still more than enough for one person. Wash it down with a Corona, Leffe or local Tsingtao beer.
