Persian-style pizza is one of the most popular street foods in Tehran, and in West LA, our favorite version can be found at Café Glacé. The crust isn’t particularly thin or thick, there’s no tomato sauce, and there’s a lot of cheese on top. Like, Garfield’s lasagna preferred level of cheesiness. The spinach and goat cheese pizza is a standout, simply because of how pleasantly soft and mild the actual goat cheese is, but our favorite pie on the menu is the “Mix.” Topped with beef mortadella, beef hot dogs, green peppers, tomatoes, mushrooms and mozzarella, this is a salty, savory masterpiece and should be on any LA pizza aficionados short list. You’ll also probably notice the packets of ketchup and ranch sauce in your takeout box - those are for the pizza too. Let the Neapolitan and New York-style pizza purists shout all they want, the combination of the sugar from the ketchup and creamy sourness of the ranch works, and takes the pizza to a completely new level of excellence.
