It’s not very often you find a pizza by-the-slice joint that’s worth getting in your car and driving across the city for, but Pizzanista! is just that place. Located on the south end of the Arts District, this tiny little spot is cranking out some of the best by-the-slice pizza in the city right now. Everything from their margherita to their soppressata and mushroom is phenomenal, but it’s their white pizza that claims top prize for us. Looking to start your week off right? They do a mac & cheese pizza on Sundays only. Choose your best life.
