Mozza

mozza_r940x635Located in West Hollywood, Mozza is one of the best pizzerias LA has to offer! Try the burrata and squash blossom pizza, your life may never be the same again.

Masa of Echo Park

masa3This is the real deal: authentic Chicago style deep dish pizza. A family owned business, the Masa family has passed down their recipes several generations including made from scratch sauces and fresh dough baked daily. You can’t pass up the California Vegetable pizza with sundried tomatoes and spinach!

Bestia

bestia-01“Hip” and “Cool” are the first words that come to mind when describing this urban, rustic Italian hot spot. The wide open restaurant, enclosed by walls of exposed brick with an unfinished ceiling offers an industrial, yet chic aesthetic that is regularly packed with people that would easily be dubbed the in-crowd. Try the Gorgonzola Kale Pizza!

Gjelina

gjelinaGjelina is a tried and true favorite. The decor is just as eclectic as the menu: hip, romantic and urban with a dining room full of the west-side’s most beautiful people. You can’t go wrong with anything on the menu but make a reservation ASAP and try the Fontina, Goat Cheese & Truffle Oil Pizza.

South End

The excellent decor can only be matched by the dozen delicious pizzas on the menu. Try “The Kinney”, simply topped with crushed Roma tomatoes, heirloom cherry tomatoes, housemade mozzarella, basil pesto and extra virgin olive oil or, for the meat lover, the “District 11″, topped with generous strips of Neuske bacon, pepperoni and, best of all, a smoky heritage pork salsiccia.

Sotto

sotto-insideA small gem in the sea of Los Angeles hot spots, Sotto prides itself on old-fashioned Neapolitan pizzas cooked cooked in 900 degree Fahrenheit temperatures for a more 45 to 60 seconds yielding the perfectly soft, delicate crust. The Guanciale is a must with house-cured pork cheek, ricotta, scallions and fennel pollen.

Jones

You’ll have to do a bit of poking around to find this exclusive hot spot-Jones isn’t visible from the street, but the thin crust pizzas and amazing drinks make up for it. Try the Focaccia Robiola with white truffle oil and imported cow’s milk cheese.

Cube

045008

At Cube, you might find your mouth watering over the 85 selections of formaggi or the 300 Italian wines. Inspired by a cube-shaped cheese counter in an Italian airport, the bold-red interior is instantly welcoming as is the laid-back vibe. Cube is authentically Italian with ultra thin crust pizzas that melt in your mouth!

Bottega Louie

IMG_6925Every minx loves Bottega Louie for their sweet little indulgences but many aren’t aware of the amazingness that is their pizza. Switch gears at this charming patisserie and their savory Artichoke pizza garnished with roasted artichokes, chevre, cherry tomatoes and fleur de sel. It’s a whole new world.

Dominick’s

IMG_4664Love at first bite! The original and quite exclusive Dominick’s restaurant and bar, established in 1948, was a favorite watering hole for the likes of Frank Sinatra, Marilyn Monroe and the Rat Pack. Now open to the public, this West Hollywood joint is New-York inspired with speakeasy tunes coming through the speakers and swanky booths.
