Best Pizza in LA?

Where can I find some really good pizza? I have had some bad experiences lately. Any suggestions for LA or the South Bay?

  1. Here's one of the recent threads on this subject to get you started. There was also a fairly recent discussion of South Bay pizza places. If you go to the main chowhound page and try a search for south bay pizza los angeles you may find it too, (although the search archives are not very up to date). Also if you search for best pizza los angeles, or pizza you will get a lot of hits to look at.

    Do you have any personal recommendations for places?

    1. CASA BIANCA in Eagle rock, AlBANOS on Melrose in Hollywood, MULLBERRY ST. in Encino, Santa Monica and Beverly Hills, adn PAGGLIACHI'S in studio city. Im not sure of the exact adresses, call information, but GO TO THESE AMAZING PIZZA PLACES!!!!!!!

      1. Hmmmmm will have to try Clives boastful pizza...
        Here are the more recent threads (which I never really tire of..I mean it's Pizza!)




        1. hello, we had excellent { thin crust from wood burning oven ] pizza at the Angeli Caffe. enjoy

          1. I'll throw in a vote for Rocco's Pizza on Wilshire near Fairfax. Unassuming place, fantastic pizza. (FYI I've seen it mentioned in various threads here and elsewhere for best pizza so it's not just me.)

            1. Lamonica's for thin crust, Jacopo's for thick crust.
              And I have started to come around to Mulberry as a good backup.

              1. I think the best pizza in the South Bay is Valentino's. It's NY style thin crust. Really good stuff. They deliver too (coupons in the Beach Reporter and Easy Reader).

                There are 2 locals, but the one in Manhattan Beach on Aviation is the best.

                Finally, when you order, order pick up. On the way home, crack the box open an inch or so so the pizza doesn't overcook on the way home.

                I have also tried Piasannos and Pedonnes in Hermosa and they are good but not as good as Valentinos. I;'e also tried Brooklyn Brick oven in Manhattan beach but it's not that special.
