Pizza on Cape Ann

Our favorite pizza place used to be La Rosa's in East Gloucester but since the change in ownership, the pizza has lost its fabulous-ness. We tried Maria's last week and were really disappointed. It was nothing special, even a little flavorless.
We like a thin crust and not too greasy. Any recs?
I've had La Rosa's twice since the change in ownership and we thought it was better than before. The ingredients seemed fresher and I like the crust (kind of had a Veggie Planet-like tasting crust), but I thought it could have used a little more time in the oven both times. Next time I will try ordering well done. I like thin & non-greasy too. This fit the non-greasy bill, but it is not a classic thin crust.
La Trattoria did not do it for me but I only tried it once. Seemed really underdone. I really like Riverview in Ipswish too. I also think Espresso's on Main St G is pretty good. Espresso's seems most like a classic Italian thin crust. Service & ambiance really lack there but not a necessity for take out.
I've been curious about Willow Rest. They advertise brick oven pizza.
I tried pizza at Zoe's tapas bar in Beverly recently. The place is lovely with a great long bar, good wine/beer/cocktails, but the pizza was pretty bad. Tasted like fast food pizza.
