Garage Pizza

I tell you I was really excited for this one.  I had heard great things.  It wasn't all wrong either.

It is a small dark place easily missable in a strip mall.  It looks on the inside more like a bar than a pizza joint.  
I picked up a large cheese pizza.  They only have one size, 18 inches and the best part is was only 14 dollars.   Great price, I'm loving this place already.  I took a bite and it was extremely crispy and thin.  Some may say it was too crispy even a little burnt.  Maybe so, but after all the pizza I've had with a crust that is doughy, this is a nice change.  My only complaint with the crust is, as I discovered after it had cooled a few degrees, that it was kind of dry.  The outer edge being that it was so extremely crispy and thin was more like a crunchy bread stick.  The sauce too I was loving at first, really sweet.  Then as I ate more I got to thinking it was too sweet, I didn't know there was such a thing.  But I really think I could taste the sugar.  The cheese was light and not a major factor, in fact the cheese and sauce were both put on light but a more prominent sauce taste.  The grease did its job to soften the crust up a bit but it was just too dry.    
For such high expectations and the fact that I was starving when I ate it, it tasted pretty good.  One of the better pizzas I have had in LA, for sure.  The sauce was a touch too sweet and the crust too dry.  But the fact that they weren't afraid to cook their pizza's crust gives them points. If I lived near by I'd order it several times.
