De Sano Pizza Bakery

This sounds promising. Located on Santa Monica Blvd, near Normandie in East Hollywood, it has some things going for it.

Hope it's open tomorrow:

            TonyC that looks amazing! can't wait to try it. thanx! :>

    1. I saw that as we'll! I'll bookmark it on yelp. Please report back if you go soon.

      1. I went there on Saturday right when it opened. Had the small Margherita with pepperoni. It was really fascinating to see them make the pizza in front of me. I got to talk with the owner, he said that everything is imported from Italy. I was amazed to see my pizza cooked in two minutes. It comes out in a very thin crust, but I got to say that I've never been so impressed with a pizza. Everything came together absolutely right. I definitely will be back. They make the real thing. You'll never think of Dominos, Pizza Hut or Papa John's again!

        NOTE--They are closed on Sundays.

        1. I stopped in today and I am happy to report it is a great addition to this side of town. I am not a connoisseur of Neapolitan pizza by any means, but I find it a step above 800 degrees, and at a better price point and equal to Mother Dough.
          You order at a counter, the young woman working was knowledgable and helpful. I had a bianca pizza and spinach salad. The crust was charred and chewy. The salad was a bit meh, with a heavy balsamic dressing.
          The space is HUGE. They are applying for a beer and wine license. I can see this place hoping once it is granted.
          I would love to hear other Chowhounds take on the pizza that are more knowledgeable on Neapolitan style.

          1. Bumping this to see if there's any more recent feedback on this place. I love Stella Barra pizza and am wondering if any comparisons can be drawn?

                As much as I enjoy DeSano, it is not in the same league as Stella Barra.
