Hello Pizza in Edina is a high-quality, by-the-slice, family-friendly pizzeria run by Ann Kim, the owner behind Pizzeria Lola in Armatage (perhaps the reigning champ of local artisan pizza). Decor in this sunny and efficient space is spare, slick, and softly colored. The New York-style pizzas come with superb credentials: excellent portions on the toppings (mostly organic, some local, and a few house-made), light but flavorful sauce, and most importantly an A+ crust, which is blistered, a little salty, and tender, with definite crispness. Menu boards show the handful of Italian-inspired combos available by the slice and the more creative daily specials, which recently included a pie with artichokes, spinach, and piquillo peppers and a spicy number with chicken, smoky barbecue sauce, and jalapenos. I loved the mild flavors of the Hello Rita, a basic margherita with garlic and oregano; the Veggie Supremo, with its melange of greens, French feta, and ricotta cheese; and the Hello Trinity, which features crimini mushrooms, pepperoni, and fennel sausage. Is Hello’s pizza the most accurate representation of New York-style pizza? That's all debatable, but this is lovely pizza through and through. Beyond pizza, Hello also serves wonderful sandwiches, including a classic Italian meatball grinder and the Korean Cowboy with sweet and spicy pork meatballs, pickled onions, shredded carrots, and fragrant Thai basil. Salads are sized to share and include a respectable Caesar; the spritely and savory Tricolore salad with arugula and shaved fennel; and the mind-boggling Smoky Greens salad, with deep, layered flavor from applewood-smoked onions, toasted pumpkin seeds, and Moody Blue cheese. It's phenomenal.
