Want good pizza near Pasadena tonight- is there such a thing?

Prefer thin crust, not overly greasy and want to wash it down with some wine. Impossible in this neighborhood???

    1. If Eagle Rock counts as near Pasadena (and it should), there's Casa Bianca which is many CHers' idea of the best pizza in Los Angeles (I think it's the best in the area, and maybe in the top ten regionally).

        I second Casa Bianca, I miss it so. And yes, they do serve wine.

      2. sit at the bar at the Parkway Grill. or Gales.

        1. There's a new pizza place in Eagle Rock called Brownstone which people have compared to Vito's and Joe's. Here's a recent thread:

          You also might consider venturing to Los Feliz and hitting up Il Capriccio's pizzeria, which I think has the best pizza in the area. Here's a link to their webpage:

            No wine at Brownstone and the atmosphere does not sound like what TAG is looking for. You can go to Carmine's (they offer thin crust (not NY-style thin crust) on request - get it cooked well done) and have a full bar.

              Brownstone will deliver to the Colorodo Wine company wine bar two doors down from them.

                Interesting.. did not know that. My experience with Brownstone is that you have to eat it the second it gets taken out of the oven (and cooked well done at that). My second piece (eaten in restaurant) definitely suffered from the time lapse!

                  You can also bring wine to Brownstone. But yes they will deliver hot slices and whole pizza's to the wine store. Brownstone is open until 9pm tonight and the wine bar is open until 11pm
