UPDATE: So since I posted this, Cristoni on Sunset is no more. It seems to have been muscled out by the big New Yorker, Joe. There is still a place in Beverly Hills, so don't worry, all you Cristoni heads out there. I have not been to this location, but I can only assume it is the same.

Today for lunch I ventured deeper into the valley to Valley Village. Not that deep I know. There is a small place hidden in a strip mall, as most places around around here. This place however you really can't see from the road. They have however, have a wood fired oven, which is what brought me here. There was a lovely lady working the counter that convinced me I'd love the pizza. She was nice enough to let me take pictures as well. I ordered a large 18 inch pizza and it was 15 dollars. On half of it I ordered sausage and green peppers. Boy was there a lot of toppings.

Sorry for the delay in pizza reviews. I have been in Mexico for awhile and the pizza selection down there is a bit limited. To my surprise however there was a spot right down the street from where I was staying, in Rosarito Beach. It was called Fabrizzio’s. One of the funnier names I have come across. There was a young American girl who was somewhat running the place. When I asked if it was good NY style pizza she corrected me and told me ,"no it's Mexican style." Mexican style pizza is an interesting topic, one that I discuss in greater detail here. I don't feel this was too Mexican in style, more just American pizza in Mexico. That being said it was different than any other pizza in the U.S. Of course when you put pepperoni on it, that americanizes it quite a bit.
I enjoyed everything in Mexico, including the pizza, it was still better than some of the worst I’ve had here in LA. So I will give them credit for that. I cannot judge all of Mexico’s pizza of course on one place. So this is what I thought of Fabrizzio’s.
