There’s a lot to love about 786 Degrees - and pizza has very little to do with it. Despite a rather corporate-sounding name, this mom and pop spot in a Sun Valley stip mall has become a local legend for serving pies with outside-of-the-box toppings (think tikka masala and doner kebab) as well as traditional Neapolitan-style. And while the pizza is good (particularly the Napolitana ), it’s the experience inside the tiny shop that makes it all so special. A fiercely passionate staff, International pizza awards hanging from the walls, and a giant TV blasting old Italian tourism videos - 786 is fun, quirky, and the perfect break from your regular work-week slog.

Hail Mary Pizza
Hail Mary is LA’s version of a NY slice shop or a Chicago deep dish tavern - an ideal neighborhood pizza spot built for this city.
Roberta’s has very good pizzas, but hasn’t realized that pizzas are the thing this Culver City spot should stick to.

No, Pizzeria Mozza is not the best pizza in LA. But that doesn’t mean it’s not still a good restaurant.
