best value pizza on the westside

ronla Jan 11, 2007 05:46 AM

I need to order a lot of pizza for a party near Pico and Westwood. I want to order good food, but don't want to go broke in the process. What are your thoughts for good choices for quality/price ratio? Delivery is a plus. Any suggestions would be helpful...

    Without a doubt, Lamonica's up by UCLA on Gayley. Big 17 inch pies in the $11-16 range that are on a lot of people's top five. And they probably deliver to you.

      Or Santa Monica Pizza Kitchen on 14th and Wilshire, though I don't know if they deliver to Pico/Westwood.

        Lamonica's definitely delivers. Pico may be a bit far from its core UCLA/Westwood Village clientele, but for a large enough order... Besides the 2 for 1 offer on Mondays, they have coupons in the Daily Bruin for large 2-topping pizzas with a liter drink for $12.95, including tax, maximum 3 per address.

        There was also some discussion about a month ago about the New York Pizza in the minimall on Santa Monica Blvd. and Sepulveda. They also deliver.

        These might be a buck or two more costly than Dominos/Hut/Papa John's, but MUCH better.

            Don't know if it's too late or within the price range you had in mind but Abbot's Pizza on Pico - I think around the 1800 block in Santa Monica, right across the street from Santa Monica College - has great pizza that comes in pretty large pies or you can buy it by the slice... Lots of unique variations. A couple of my favorites would be the Popeye's Chicken Pizza (nothing resembling the Fried Chicken Chain) and the Wild Mushroom Pizza. They even have a vegetable pizza - with or without cheese - for vegetarians and vegans. Their salad-on-a-pizza is a lunch in itself. Their original place is on Abbot Kinney in Venice, thus the name... I know you're talking about West LA, but I would personally drive the extra 10 minutes - OK maybe 20 depending on traffic - for their pizzas... Lamonica's is great too although I personally haven't eaten there in a while - been too hooked on Abbot's...
