Looks like Mama Leone's left a note on the door, saying, "Sonny moved down to Davie." The yang to Mama Leone's yin, Papa Leone's (8922 Pine Ridge Plaza, Davie, 9544758877) takes the pizza recipe from the original New York tourist trap -- of Billy Joel's "Anthony's Song" fame -- and delivers it free to local residents. But the real claim to éclat lies in Papa's specials: Monday is the large "works," which includes pepperoni, sweet Italian sausage, and Canadian bacon, for $12.99; Tuesday is "Papa's fiesta," a large cheese pizza with choice of two toppings, garlic rolls, and a two-liter bottle of soda, for $11.99; and Thursday is a large garden pizza for $12.49. Movin' out never tasted so good.
