Pizza:Studio City/Sherman Oaks
I prefer thick yet I already know how hard it is to find that and "Georgio's" on Laurel/Ventura dont do it for me. I do enjoy thin yet where you can fold it not cracker thin, after hearing all that could I get some suggestions.
In reading previous threads I learned about:
-Reno's Pizza-What style of pizza is this?
-Marie's Italian Kitchen-heard has a decent pie?
-Antonio's Pizza-What style?
Please share your thoughts,
P.S.-Gave up on Mazzarino's Pizza, Paggiano's, and Dmores (not sure of spelling)
I do enjoy Little Tony's in No Ho
I live in the Stu (my nickname for Studio City) and have discovered that Big Mama's and Papa's Pizza has great thin crust pizza for delivery. I get it every week while drinking cheap champagne and watching America's Next Top Model...but don't let that fool you, I know a good thin crust pizza when I taste it.
Reno's is thin-crust New Yorkish. For God's sake, just invest the $10 or whatever in a pie and make your report... it's not like it's Urasawa, for crying out loud!
Maria's sauce is really bland. But they have absolutely fantastic fried calamari at the Sherman Oaks location.
Have you tried Ameci? There's one on Burbank and Whitsett and another on Woodman and Moorpark. This was our go-to for pizza (now it's either Marri's or Pepperoni's).
We don't eat pizza that often but when we do, we go to Little Toni's or Dino's. In terms of delivery or pick-up, we like Prime Italian which is actually the closest to our house, in the little mall at the SW corner of Magnolia and Hazeltine. It does tend to be a bit doughy though. We also used to go to Fab's every now and again, on Van Nuys Blvd. at Dickens but it's been awhile.
Caoiti Pizza Cafe in Studio City on Tujunga south of Moorpark is pretty good. I prefer their NY-Style pizza to the California pizza... which apparently the chef there invented. He used to be the pizza chef at Spago, so it's pretty damn on-the-level. And while I wouldn't say it's the best pizza in LA, it's easily my favorite place in the Valley.
As far as Joe Peep's, the crust IS garlic bread. And while I love garlic bread, I do not love this... I can't say I'm a fan.
Not in your area, but if you find yourself in Northridge (for whatever reason) do yourself a favor and try Ravanelli's on Reseda and Chase. They have wonderful thicker crust pizza. Do as I always do and order every pizza you get "well done" - worlds of difference.
