At no point while eating the wafer-thin, mushroom-paved round at Danny Meyer’s Roman pizza temple will you miss the sauce. Hell, you’ll likely not even realize that it’s lacking the customary slick of red. That’s because distinguished dough puncher Nick Anderer layers his lightweight, ember-fired crusts with oozing, sharp fontina, red onion shavings, a touch of fragrant thyme and and the woodsy one-two punch of roasted chanterelles and maitakes. Pizzaiolas of New York, take note: this is how you do a mushroom pie. $18.
