A slice of pizza: 045 Pizza Myro
A recent addition to my pizza pantheon is 045 Pizza Myro in Yokohama’s Motomachi area. It’s billed as California pizza, though I’m not sure that such pizza really has a definition beyond what Wolfgang Puck and California Pizza Kitchen have done. 045’s pizza is far less pretentious, and starting at 250 yen a slice, cheap by local standards. It’s also a 10-minute city bus ride on the No. 21 from the Navy’s Negishi housing area. Most of 045’s business is takeout, though it also has a counter with Budweiser on tap. The tomato and basil pizza earns high marks here, but simple slices like pepperoni also satisfy.
