Unforgettable PIZZA CRUST you ever eaten in Southern California

On my visit to Vancouver last year, I had the most unforgettable pizza from Romano Pizza, downtown Vancouver. The crust was so good, it stayed yummy next morning after reheat on the hotel's coffee burner. They also put sesame on the crust. I am still searching for a comparable crust in OC or LA area. Have you ever eaten a pizza that you never forget the taste, especially the crust ? I am looking for a good pizza, not only because the fresh ingredients but because the crust is unforgettable.

        Love Baronies. The best ever was La Barbaras. Unfortunately, long gone!

          Agree with La Barbara's. Best ever.

            Do you mean Barone's Pizza in North Hollywood?

              Yes. If you have not tried it, give it a shot and provide your feedback. Nothing like hit from an old school standpoint and one of the first thin crust pizza. Beyond good.

          I'd second the crust at Mozza. Absolutely memorable, but then it's also not your traditional pizza crust, it's been designed by an exquisite baker. It's got crunch, some chew, yet I somehow feel like flaky pastry is a term that feels right at home describing that crust as well. Enjoy!

            Great description of Mozza's pizza crust.

            1. re: debra

              Mozza's pizza crust is very good indeed.

            2. Mother Dough and Mozza both have amazing crusts.

                  A new Sammy's Woodfire Pizza is opening next month at Plaza El Segundo in El Segundo on Sepulveda Blvd across from Whole Food. I really do like Sammy's whole wheat crust.

                    I also like how light and crispy the Pitfire Pizza crust is.

                      just as information for the board:
                      Sammy's Woodfire Pizza charges $10 corkage.

                  2. Mother Dough. But the glory does not last... you must eat fast... I can manage to eat about 2/3 before it starts turning a bit rubbery. It would not stand up to being reheated on a coffee burner (which, btw, is one of the more fascinating tidbits I've learned on CH).

                    1. I wouldn't call it "unforgettable" but Zach's in Studio City is the best I've had for a while.
