There’s a lot of new pizza in LA right now. Like, a lot a lot. And the good news is that most of it is pretty good. That said, if you’re looking for a change of pace from the many wood-fired and Detroit-style shops popping up around town, head to Oste. This new Italian spot in Beverly Grove specializes in pinsa, a Roman-style flatbread that’s unlike anything you can really find in LA. On my most recent takeout order, I ordered the Calabrese with mozzarella and n’duja, the potato and rosemary-topped Patate, and the Viva l’Italia, which comes with pesto, goat cheese, and cherry tomatoes. Each one needs to be on your dinner table by next weekend. I’m not usually a potatoes-on-pizza person, but Oste has made me convert. The thin, round slices give the pie a softer texture with the rosemary providing a much-needed punch of aromatics. Plus, the light, crunchy crust that comes on each one makes it so you can have several pieces of each kind without paying the price late on the couch. It’s important to note that their takeout menu is currently pinsa-only), but if you opt to dine-in on their patio, you’ll find an expanded menu complete with appetizers, pasta, and big plates of meat.
