    Fresh mushrooms > canned. If the pizza's made right, they shouldn't dry up.

    Anyone here from SF ever go to Pauline's Pizza? Best gourmet pizza in the country in my opinion.

    I think that's the place over by Tokyo Lobby. If so, I've only driven past it as it never looked like anything other than a run-of-the-mill joint. Oh yeah, and I passed it on the way to Shakey's. [​IMG]

    There used to be a pizza place across the street from Carl's Jr. on Las Tunas until it turned into a Mex joint, then back to pizza, then...who knows what now. That place had the best "gourmet" pizza in the valley while it existed.

    Parking around Nicky D's can be dodgy along Rowena but there's usually plenty of spots up the hill from the restaurant/bakery on the corner of Glendale.

    actually that pizza place still exists, they just moved over to Mission St right across from the SGMission. It's a much bigger, nicer spot, holds a lot more people which is good because that old location was always packed since it only had like seating for 30. they have some of the best free starter bread I've had, those garlic-y rolls things.

    Ha...no way. It sounds like it's next door to my friend's catering company. Now I've got an excuse to go back.

    Before hitting a pizzeria I always tell myself I'll have a change. I always end up having a Siciliana.

    probably pizza heresy considering it's a chain restaurant but Buca Di Beppo's thin crust sausage and mushroom is my favorite.

    I've come to the realization that w/ pizza, like many other things, less is more. Basic margherita, maybe some mushrooms (no canned!) - here in NYC there are a good # of choices depending where you are: Manhattan - Lombardis, Johns, La Pizza Fresca, Ottimo, Arturos, Patsys, Lil' Frankies, Sullivan St. Bakery, Pala, Una Pizza Naploetana, etc.; Brooklyn - Grimaldis, Totonnos, DiFaras; Queens - Nicks

    Have not been, but Una Pizza Napoletana is supposed to awesome (this is a good website, too):

    *edited - DeMarcos is in Manhattan & run by Dom's (DiFaras) daughter(?) - site of beginning of tragic shooting last night that saw two auxiliary PO's killed

    I worked a block from Albano's for over a year and while I didn't hate it, there's no way I'd call it good NY pizza.

    That said, GS, PLEASE take the missus to Nicky D's in Silver Lake (http://www.nickydspizza.com/). It will change your religion, bed sheets, etc. I recommend their pepperoni,basil & tomato pizza to keep things simple.

    Thank me later.


    whodini, whereabouts in silverlake is it? (link doesn't seem to be working)

    Oh, you guys are talking about great pizza places? Well, you're all wrong. Accept that.

    The BEST pizza on God's green earth is a place called Brooklyn Pizza Works in placentia, orange county, CA, on Imperial Highway. This shit is no joke, I've been eating there on a regular basis for over 10 years because it's the most addictive pizza I've ever had. In fact, most of the customers there are strictly regulars, some of them have been eating there weekly for the past 20 years. Total die hards.

    But seriously, this shit's delicious. 100% new york style, their cooks are like perfectionists. It bothers them if a pepperoni is out of place. Try the Mild Maggie and the East Coast Greasy. Order them THIN AND CRISPY. Very important.

    100% awesomeness. Do it. Really friendly service too. Also try the zappolis for desert.

    Link should have been http://www.nickydspizza.com/ . You can google directions, but it's across the street from the fire dept. on Rowena & Glendale in Silverlake.

    I personally like it for being informal and cozy, making it great for a date while feeling like you're at the LA's best-kept secret. It's family friendly so bring the kids. Prices are a little higher than standard fare, but this stuff's woodfired and the ingredients are fresh. Again, my go-to pizza is the rec I gave GS. Can't miss.

    That reminds me, if I don't like the TaT suit I get can I send you the bill?

    Nope. This place doesn't have an actual restaurant, just banquet space and a kitchen for their events.
