Looking for Good pizza in Eagle Rock
- PurpleTeeth Dec 11, 2006 01:18 AM
So we recently moved to Eagle Rock and left our beloved Village Pizza behind. We have tried Casa Bianca many times and it sucks! We have tried Italiano's-OK, Capri-OK, Two Guys from Italy-Ok. But we want great pizza. Any Recommends?
You might be out of luck. A lot of people think Casa Bianca is the best in Eagle Rock and even LA.
Speaking of pizza...today I had this idea that I wanted the chopped salad and pizza at California Pizza Kitchen, don't ask why, I haven't been to one in at least 2 years. But first thing I tried to taste was the smokey flavor of the pizza and it wasn't there. Then walking by oven I noticed its no longer a wood fired oven but gas.(Hollywood location).
Yeah, we like CPK but only the thin crust. Try that next time. It's very good but not quite what we are looking for.
Casa Bianca pizza is good, but it is not classic pizza, and that sounds like what you are looking for.
There WAS Guiseppe's on verdugo by chevy chase with fabulous thin crust pizza. Sadly they are no more. It's a bit of a drive, but not horrific - Dominicks in La Crescenta. Excellent thin crust pizza! Not cheap but TASTY.

Bada Bing in Pasadena is okay... but only if you get the plain cheese.
See, to some of us Casa Bianca's pizza *IS* the classic pizza: thick, goopy, loaded with stuff - the pizza we grew up with, the pizza that defined itself during our formative years. And that, as opposed to some textbook standard, is what defines "classic" in many people's book, mine included.
