Echo Park/Silver Lake pizza spots
I've been wanting pizza all week long!! I'm going out tonight on a little datey-date and I thought I'd hit up the chowhounds for some advice on where to grab a good pie on the east side.
I've had the Chicago-style pizza at Masa before and I thought it was great, but I'm looking for something a little less heavy. Oh yeah, and desserts, too :)
I have no idea about desserts there, but Pizza Buona on Sunset in Echo Park is pretty good NY-style pizza.
I'm not sure I would go on a first date there, though. It's pretty much a cheap pizza parlor inside.
If you like thin crispy pizza I would recommend Michelangelo Pizzeria on Silver Lake Blvd. - 1637 to be exact. I believe that they only serve individual size pizzas but they may have large as well.
Every time that I've gotten the pizza there I have liked it; I usually get delivery and they are quite good so I can imagine how good they are right out of the oven.
Il Cappricio Pizza is suppose to open this month (an off-shoot of the restaurant on Vermont Ave) -- anyone hear anything?
Another option is Louisa's in Los Feliz -- I know it's a chain, but it's Silverlake Jake, you can't be picky with your delivery options (there's not that many of 'em in these parts). Last night we ordered the vegie pizza which we really enjoy (it's on the thick side) and got the chopped salad which is really good.
P.S. We also order from michelangelo's a lot -- they have two sizes, we usually split the larger size and get a salad. Another thing we do is split the smaller pizza and also a pasta -- they deliver and are very nice. Love the bean soup as well!
