Ca' Momi, a bustling restaurant in Napa, California, is known for its rigorously authentic Neapolitan-style pizza. This one--its name translates as "Snow White"--is delicately smoky. It's worth trying to find fresh smoked buffalo mozzarella with its lovely light texture. If you use smoked cow's-milk mozzarella instead, trim off the rind if it's tough.
