For years, Apollonia’s was one of our Mid-Wilshire pizza go-to’s, thanks to their crispy thin crust and fresh toppings. But it wasn’t until they quietly added an off-menu square pie in 2019 that things were really taken to a completely different level for us. With crunchy, inch-thick crust and a spongey, light interior, this is pizza you drive across town to try. At $40, there’s definitely going to be a little sticker shock, but just know that their 10x14in square pie can easily feed two people for a week.
