Chicago Deep Dish in Sherman Oaks

I just read about a place called Oak Fire Pizzeria that has a location in West Hollywood, and is opening (or maybe it has opened) a location in Sherman Oaks where Fondue Bourguignonne used to be. The menu on their website lists a large variety of Chicago deep dish pizza, which they ask for 45 minutes to prepare. They offer more than 20 toppings, including things like carmelized onions and cherry peppers. Normally I would never consider a pizza place that offers soy cheese and soy sausage (blech!) as a topping, but I'm desperate for a decent , and reasonably authentic Chicago deep dish pizza.

Has anyone been here?

  1. I haven't tried it, but here's a picture off their website of a slice of their deep-dish pizza. It looks promising but not transcendent.

      It looks just like "Stone Fire PIzza" I would love for Carter to share his feedback on what he knows about this place.

      I live in Sherman Oaks and the only decent deep dish in my book is MASA in Echo Park.

        Hi Hypnotic23,

        Have you tried Tony's Little Italy's version? I'm curious how Masa compares with it. Thanks.

    2. I went last night. Not a deep dish place. Very thin crust but it was FANTASTIC. A friend had the Wild Mushroom and I had Chicken Pesto. From 5-7 is Happy hour prices on cocktails, beer, wine, appetizers AND The wood fire pizza! Yummy!

          Did not know they even had it! Just checked their menu online and they do. I would give it a try!

            So, is the Sherman Oaks location open, if so I am sooo there on Monday.

      1. Does anyone know if they deliver?

        1. bless you for posting this. I now have some hope of a good pizza, that isnt a million miles away. I was going to try to do my own at home this week, but i am most definitely going to oakfire this coming week.

          1. Soy sausage AND soy cheese? More than just "blecth!" -- it sounds like a gummy double punch from which I am not likely to recover.
