Los Angeles is pizza heaven at the moment. From the seashore towns to Hollywood, downtown, and beyond, the city is smitten with puffy-crusted, expertly charred rounds oozing with all way of tacky goodness. So here are the pleasant new locations to find your L.A. Pie repair this summertime.
Pizza, West Hollywood
After two stellar years in Brentwood, Pizza this month brings its “Neo-Neapolitan” wonders to Robertson Boulevard. You may additionally recognize Pizza as “the pizza region from the Sprinkles lady and the man from NCIS,” however, co-founders Candace Nelson and actor Chris O’Donnell invested their Italian-loving hearts in addition to their cash. The dough is natural and stone-ground from Italian flour and fermented for 48 hours in a “slow dough” rising method. San Marzano tomatoes are grown in Naples exclusively for the eating place. In May, Michelin presented the pizzeria a Bib Gourmand. Order the salmon pizza with smoked salmon, ricotta crema, dill, parsley, bottarga, chive, lemon zest— an homage to the Wolfgang Puck classic from the antique Spago’s in West Hollywood.
Sixth & Mill, Downtown
Part of Matteo Ferdinandi and Chef Angelo Aurian’s Factory Place Hospitality Group, the Arts District cheese chapel (positioned in a former Los Angeles Gas Company warehouse) seems masterful pies that are equal parts crisp, saucy and pliable. Sixth & Mill’s pizza Margherita, made with tomato, for di latte cheese, oregano, and Apulian olive oil, is the Platonic ideal of the shape. My cross-to is the pizza Bianche, a white pizza effervescent with amporapini, eggplant, zucchini, peppers, and mushrooms. Michelin additionally venerated Sixth & Mill with a Bib Gourmand, and the venue opens a marble-and-mozzarella-happy place this autumn at The Venetian Resort Las Vegas.
Triple Beam, Highland Park
Since the day of its launch in February of the closing year, people commenced calling Triple Beam the pleasant pizza in L.A., and I’m no longer going to combat it. Instead, the collaboration between Matt Molina (formerly Mozza, now Everson Royce Bar) and Mozza’s Nancy Silverton helps you play director using Cecil B. DeMille-fashion framing gestures to signify how large you need your slice to be. The Roman-style portions are available in thick squares (or huge-display screen rectangles, if you opt for) and crunch like in Sensurround. You’ll like it; you may, without a doubt, like it.
Superfine Pizza, Downtown
A Fashion District pizza window from the skills behind dearly-departed Sotto serves pies and slices worthy of a trip across the city. Superfine’s nine pizzas include Salami Honey (Spicy Salami, Provolone, Grana Padano, Buckwheat Honey) and Sausage Rabe (Housemade Sausage, Rapini, Fresh Mozzarella, Ricotta, Ricotta Salata).
L’Antica Pizzeria da Michele
Here’s how Los Angeles has truly located its pizza cause. Last month, the integral Naples-based totally pizzeria opened an outpost simply north of Sunset in a garden in Hollywood. L’Antica Pizzeria da Michele—or Antica, to you, me, and all and sundry who is examine Eat, Pray, Love—fires up best Neapolitan pies in 60 seconds but with flavor that packs 150 years of revel in every chew.
Roberta’s, Culver City
Neapolitan indulgence for the Soul Cycle set. The Brooklyn-born dough darling, which started as a pop-up at the Platform, spins out discs of tomato, mozzarella, and basil in conjunction with wilder alternatives like Crispy Glover (tomato, taleggio, guanciale, pink onion, garlic, chili, and bread crumbs). Festive, noisy, unnervingly excellent.
