Pitfire Pizza Downtown- Anyone Tried it?

  • i

I love Pizza and I have a bad craving at lunch once a week. A co-worker just told me about this place. Has anyone tried it? How is the crust? What toppings are the best? Anything else on the menu worth trying? Is there a big rush at lunch time? Thanks in advance!

    1. While I adore thin crust pizza, PitFire is pretty blah to these taste buds.
      I much prefer the pizzas, downtown wise, at Zucca, on Fig and 8th.



      1. I loved the heirloom tomato pizza and the asparagus egg tuscany proscuitto pizza at Pitfire. I met friends there at the downtown location and today we were jonesing for the asparagus egg in north hollywood. The north hollywood location didn't have the asparagus egg so we tried the butternut squash bacon corn pizza. Delicious!

          I've never been to Pitfire Downtown but been to the NoHo one a few times. You mean to say they have different menus?

            yes, the "specials" downtown are not at the noho location. unfortunately for us. the asparagus poached egg fontina cheese lemon zest roasted garlic pizza is the bomb! I received the following email from the downtown location:

          1. It's not the best but if you work Downtown it's above-average for a lunch choice. Nice atmosphere and a welcome addition to helping make downtown a 24 hour neighborhood, as the urban planners would say.
