The Northfield City Council denied Lisa Monet Zarza’s request for a liquor license renewal for Alibi at Froggy Bottoms on a 4-3 vote at a meeting last week.

MENTION FROZEN pizza and most of us think of the utilitarian discs found in the supermarket freezer case, not wood-fired creations meticulously crafted by top pizzaioli. “If you would have told me [a year ago] I would be doing frozen pizza, I would have told you I have a bridge to sell you,” said Chris Bianco, chef-owner of Pizzeria Bianco in Phoenix, Ariz., credited with some of America’s best pies.
