Has anyone tried Big Mama's Pizza in Pasadena? Any feedback appreciated.

  1. I've tried it a few times. Not bad, actually. I like a really thin crust pizza, and they can pull it off. Delivery service seems haphazard, so your best bet is to just pick it up yourself.

    It's been a while, but I think I liked their meatball pizza.

    1. Big Mama's and Big Papa's pizza tastes better when you ask for extra cheese on their pizzas.

      1. It's a local chain of pizzerias. I think the owners must be Georgian/Russian because they have kachapouri on the menu. The Kachapouri, btw, is ridiculously good. It's a pizza crust with mozzarella, feta, butter and eggs on top. It's much much better than it sounds.

        As for the pizza, it's just good, not great but it's definitely better pizza than the other delivery options (even though it takes a while). They even deliver a 3 foot diameter monstrosity, which is perfect for Superbowl parties.

        1. I go to the one in NoHo a lot, and it's really good. Much better than any chain out there.

          The pizza is great, and you can get slices with any toppings. I have yet to try the 36" one.

          However, the greek salad is delicious! I'm a big fan, but this one is really good. Everything seems very fresh. I usually add some chicken which is also really good. Off the top of my head, the salad comes with fresh lettuce, red pepper, sun dried tomatoes, red onion, cucumber, feta, greek olives, and of course dressing. One of my favorite salads to grab when I have to eat at my desk or to take home after work.

          1. Thanks for the info.

            I tried Big Mammas Pizza. Had a pepperoni and olive pizza. My daughter and I almost ate a whole large to ourselves. Very Good. Extra thin crust. But, the antipasto salad was weak. However, all in all really good pizza.I will be back.
