This is of course is an impossible task. To pick 10 of the best places is tough and you always will leave some good places out, even in a below average pizza town like LA. Even harder is to rank one good pizza higher than another good pizza. However, it is necessary to at least have a list, in order or not, of the best pizza places in town.
So as of 2/13/10 here are the best pizzas in LA that I have visited, in no particular order. This will forever change as I discover better places. Click link for further info.
