LA’s obsession with Detroit-style pizza is officially in hyperdrive, and that’s certainly not a bad thing in our books. Just be sure to put Dtown Pizzeria at the top of your list. Operating inside Phorage in West Hollywood, this pop-up is run by Detroit native Ryan Ososky, who is cranking out the kind of real-deal, Detroit-style pizza that reminds us of Buddy’s or Jet’s (for any Detroit natives reading this). The crust is perfectly golden and crispy with a light, airy center that makes taking down a whole pie by yourself a very doable option. The 1946, which comes topped with a red stripe - not the beer, in Detroit that means a thick ribbon of marinara - and oregano, and The Goomba (pepperoni and fennel pollen) are standouts.

Cafe Flora is inside a fancy accessory store on Melrose Place, and the food is pretty much what you’d expect given that fact.
Mendocino Farms makes delicious sandwiches. We just wish the place didn't feel like such a whitewashed chain. The food is good - just get it to-go.

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.
Dough Daddy LA
DTLA pop-up Dough Daddy doesn’t make it easy to order their Detroit-style pies, but this pizza is worth the extra effort.
