Indie-video-game boosters Babycastles and pizza-review zine Slice Harvester have teamed up with artist Yusuke Okada to create a pizzeria-arcade installation in the downtown art gallery. Visitors can drop in to play three games, including Peacemaker, a diplomatic simulator based around the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. In another corner, a TV blares Schwarzenegger flicks and a tape deck plays ’90s pop and rap. The oven is purely decorative, but during events volunteers dish out gratis pie from top-rated New York Pizza Suprema (see photos from the December 4 opening, above). 108 Leonard St between Broadway and Lafayette St, 13th floor (212-233-1096, artonair.org). Tue noon–7pm, Wed–Fri noon–5pm. Free. ID required. Through Dec 31.
At this dreamy West Village spot, chef and owner Simone Falco worked with famed flourmill Antico Molino Caputo to create a proprietary gluten-free flour blend. Made with buckwheat flour and corn, rice and gluten-free wheat starches, the dough is virtually indistinguishable in taste from a traditional variety. The pillowy crust can be topped with creamy mozzarella di bufala, salty guanciale or rich basil pesto.
