Best Pizza in North Dallas?

Help me please! I'm a Chicago boy commuting to Dallas for business for the past few months. I'm struggling to find decent pizza (thin crust, rather than Chicago style). The closest to reasonable I've had is Campisi's, though I wasn't overwhelmed.
Any alternate suggestions are greatly appreciated.
Dallas pizza possibilities: Cafe Roma(151 W. Spring Creek Parkway, Plano), Dino's Italian Restaurant(3022 Motley Drive, Mesquite), and Pastazio's(5026 Addison Circle, Addison).
Haven't actually been to any of those, but they're on my list of places to try if I'm ever in Dallas and hankering for pizza.
You won't be overwhelmed by any pizza in Dallas. Marco's is good (carryout only), and different from Campisi's, but the pizza situation in Dallas is just not so great. The original Campisi's on Mockinbird Lane is supposed to be better than the branch locations. Scallini's in Lakewood is similiar to Campisi's and pretty good.
We do have some overwhelmingly good chow here -- see below -- just not pizza.
When I lived in Irving a few years, I Fratelli made a really great pizza. Don't know how accessible that is to you...I believe they now have a few delivery outposts in addition to the main restaurant. Great stuff, and better than anything I've had since moving to Chicago, actually. The pizza's (though not the restaurant) along the same lines as Vito & Nick's, a Chicago joint at like 85th and Pulaski. Nice thin, crisp crust, good tang to the sauce, fresh ingredients. Good luck,
