Side Pie is a pop-up operating out of a house in Altadena that’s cranking out perfectly blistery, charred-crusted pizza. Unlike similar wood-fired shops around town though, Side Pie’s pizzas are massive with big, greasy pieces that you can fold in half and eat while sitting on the curb pretending it’s 3am in lower Manhattan. The pepperoni, ricotta, and basil-topped “Altadena” is our favorite option, because the ingredients elevate and complement each other perfectly. If you’re looking for something slightly more untraditional, try the “Crabby Neighbor.” It comes with a garlic/butter base, fresh-caught crab meat, and lemon right from their front yard that makes both a sweet and savory pie, with a big punch of citrus.
