Where can I find good thin crust pizza in the San Gabriel Valley? I've been to Casa Bianca and Domenico's and would appreciate other recs. Thanks in advance!

    Carmine's, but you have to specify thin crust. Also get it cooked well done.

            Good rec. Pizzeria Regina in Boston turn me onto thin crust. When I came back to L.A. I went on a quest to find LA's best thin crust. I read the post on Chowhound and I did some serious growing during that venture. I do like the Pizza Bakery in Newport Beach but it was not until I sat inside Petrillo's and asked the server whether the cook could make a thin crust (not on the menu) that I found a Boston smile on my face. A special order medium pizza “Thin crust, pie cut” with sausage and pepperoni at Petrillo's Pizza in San Gabriel is the real deal. Save some for a cold breakfast the next morning. Best pizza in the USA. There is no better pizza!

                I agree with Like go grinz (fka "like go eat", I assume) - Petrillos is definitely worth trying. We also have similar tastes in tortilla chips!

            I recently went to Il Forno, it just opened last Thursday in Azusa. The proprietor is an old time Pasadena Restaurateur. I have to say it was a very good thin crust pizza. I ordered the spinach ricotta pizza. I have gotten so sick of eating pizza because I really hate the thick crusts everyone makes, so this was a pleasant surprise.
