I tried to eat at a place today called Pizza Hop. I wasn't looking forward to it but I was doing it anyway, for you pizza lovers. Of course they closed and another pizza joint opened up. If you thought Pizza Hop was a bad name, figure this one out.
On my way back from work I picked up from a place called Pagliacci's. This place is in what you could call the heart of Studio City, it might not be much of a heart, but it's there. It is a pretty cool place, with ice cream that looked pretty tempting. I got a large cheese pizza instead. It was 13 dollars for a 16''. I was very impressed by the way it looked.

Today for lunch I tried Caioti Pizza Cafe in Studio City. I'm not sure what that means or how it's pronounced. This Ed LaDou's restaurant, the great pizza innovator, known for creating the "california style" pizza. This place is on Tujunga, on a nice little street with cool shops, restaurants and such. They serve 3 different kinds a pizza. One is New York style, which comes in a bigger size and has sauce, cheese and toppings. This is the style everyone is familiar with and the style I ordered. Then they have what they call Old World pizza, this includes some classics like, Margherita and Pizzetta Bianco. These do not have your traditional sauce on them and come in a small personal size. Finally the New World pizza style they offer, known by others as California style. Basically the toppings are the difference, BBQ chicken pizza and a lamb sausage pizza. The New York style large is 14 inches and is 14 dollars for a cheese.

I was in Santa Monica today and I tried to find a place called Joe's Pizza, which is the same as the Joe's in Brooklyn on Bleecker Street. Anyway I couldn't find it for some reason. So I went to the other pizza joint on Ocean Ave. This place is called Richie Palmer's, and it seems like a pretty good place. I didn't want to wait for a whole pizza so I only got 2 slices. Besides the pizzas are pretty big here, 20 inches and they are kind of on the expensive side, 18 for a large and 3 dollars for a slice. The cheese pizza had come right out of the oven so I got 2 fresh slices. This pizza wasn't bad, definitely better than the average L.A. slice. The sauce was sweet with some subtle flavors. The ratio of cheese to sauce was good, the crust was thin, but a little too much so, it was flopping all over the place with grease dripping out. Plus it didn't puff up at the end like it should, it was a little flat and dense. But that being said the crust did have a pretty good taste.

At work this is our go to place for lunch, they deliver and they are cheap. The subs are great and so are the calzones. The pizza however I never had, until now. They only serve up 2 sizes, medium and small. Medium is only 12 inches, the small has got to be pretty tiny. The funny thing is they have a large size for their salads, the large caesar salad is like a party platter size. It is big enough for about 10 hundred people. It is ridiculous, especially when you don't know and you order it.

It took me a while to get to this place. It is on the sunset strip just past the Whiskey a Go Go. The parking is terrible and the traffic is even worse. They said the wait would be 30 minutes, it took me about that to get there and then I drove around for 15 minutes trying to find a place to leave my car. I finally settled for a broken meter, which translates into a ticket. I ran in got my pizza took a picture and left, ticket free.
This is your typical pizza joint, calzones, Italian subs, cheap pastas and beer on tap. It does most of it's business with deliveries, but has a few tables and an ambiance that isn't a hot oven and a loud T.V. It is inside a strip mall on Sunset Blvd. Today I got a slice of cheese, I should have gotten a whole pizza because it was pretty good. The crust was crispy and thin and if you notice in the picture, the doughy bubble on the crust is a good sign that the crust is done right.

This is an old style Italian restaurant. When you walk in its dark with big red leather booths, and the smell of good Italian food. It is hard for me going into these Italian restaurants to get only pizza. I always want to try their pasta too. The only thing I like better than pizza is pasta. But as much as I want to try these places ravioli's, I can't because I'm on a mission to eat pizza.
