When everyone from LeBron James to Maria Shriver is getting into the fast-casual pizza game, you know there’s some serious dough to be made (sorry). Next into the wood-fired fray is MidiCi, an open-kitchen Neapolitan pizza chain with locations from Sherman Oaks to Hawthorne. Their Marina del Rey outpost opened in 2018, and serves some standout pies on chewy-yet-crispy crust, including The Devil’s, with spicy sausage, Calabrese salami, and red chiles, and the Four Cheese, which skips the tomato sauce in favor of layers of mozzarella, ricotta, gorgonzola, and parmesan, with a hint of garlic. The rest of the menu is a mix of salads and stuff like calzones, and it isn’t quite as strong, but if you’re looking for a quick spot for lunch or dinner, make it MidiCi.
