After all my pizza experiences, the one thing I had yet to do was make my own pizza. So the other night, my girlfriend and I planned a pizza cooking night. When it comes to pizza I am pretty picky and I know what I like. When it comes to cooking, I don't know much and can't always create what I like. So I was a bit skeptical of making my own, but it was something I had to do, to really understand what it takes. I learned it takes a lot.

I found this place the other day, it is kind of tucked inside a little collection of businesses. It has some interesting decor inside with a collection of antique chairs and tables, and some interesting wall paper it is a little like your grandmothers dinning room. Kind of a cool spot.

I could write a whole blog on kosher pizza. There seems to be a lot of it. Places I didn't even know were Jewish neighborhoods are. I went to Ameci Pizza on Burbank and Whitsett (Valley Village) and down the street I spotted a place called La Pizza. I put kosher in parentheses to differentiate it from just LA Pizza in general. Like the name of my blog. So kosher is not part of it's name, I don't think, but it is kosher pizza. The man that made my pizza told me about one of the greatest kosher pizza spots down near 3rd street and La Brea, which doesn't exist anymore. It was called La Kosher Nostra. What a great name. Anyway this place had a little fame around it too. Awhile back there was some high praise over this pizza. The praise seems to have subsided now, people may have forgotten, but the pizza is still good.

Well it's that time of year again. Festival time. The first in the lineup is Coachella. I went to it for the first time last year. So now, as a veteran I can shed some light on the pizza. Some great music. Franz Ferdinand is great, and The Killers rocked the house. People watching is always the best here. Last year it was all about the Raybans and head bands. This year it was more of the same, but louder and bigger colors, crazier glasses and clothing. Crazy mustaches was a thing, it seemed.
I don't really remember dates so this is not an official anniversary. But it has been roughly a year since I started this blog, I have compiled a data base of roughly 120 different pies. I spent about $1,700 last year on pizza alone. I wasted who knows how many hours writing this stuff and probably gained an extra 20 pounds. Actually I don't think I gained anything, I still think pizza is healthy.

It actually wasn't too bad. The sauce was pretty light and sweet. The cheese was light as well. The flavor over all was kind of bland tasting. There was some spice sprinkled on the top but it didn't seem to have much effect. There was one flavor however, that was throwing me off. Something that just seemed a little unusual about it. I couldn't put my finger on it and I couldn't really say that I liked it. So it wasn't completely bland. The crust was extra thin and extra crispy. It had a cornmeal bottom.
The UCLA campus has a lot of kids who like pizza, so naturally there are a lot of pizza joints to fill their mouths. There is a little area called Westwood Village just south of the campus, where you can find many college aged kids, thus many pizza places, including Enzo's, Lamonica's and D'Amore's. I hit them all up at once. After Italian Express, I went to another small unknown place called Angelino's. Known on google as La Subs & Pizza.
