Culver City’s Best Pizza
Who doesn’t love pizza? Oh wait. There’s someone in the very, very back. Well you can move on – nothing to see here. But for the rest of you, the ones who DO love pizza and love pizza very much thank you, you’ll be pleased to know that Culver City is home to some of the best pizza in Southern California! We took on the arduous task of going out and finding the best ones and we’re happy to tell you 1) what they are and that 2) we’re expecting a pizza baby in the fall!
No blog covering Culver City’s best pizza would be complete without the Mega Pizza and Grille. This place serves up Scandinavian style pizza (and Persian cuisine) – and if you think that fusion was odd, you’ll be blown away by the taste. Their Gyro Pizza is pretty phenomenal as is their Copenhagen Chicken Pizza. We also sampled their Mirza Canoe Pizza too – and it’s just wow, wow, wow. The portions are pretty big and the prices aren’t!
We tried Pieology Pizzeria and couldn’t believe we’d never been there before. We sampled a wheat crust pizza and wondered where it had been all our lives. It’s a build-your-own-pizza place but holds up very well in competition. Basically you get unlimited toppings for a set price of under $8. We should also give a shout-out to their Chocolate Chip Churro Dessert Pizza – I don’t know how they could improve on Heaven but they did!
Have you been to Wildcraft yet? They’re not a pizzeria per se – they’re an Italian restaurant with amazing pasta, carne and seafood – but their pizza is phenemonal! From their bacon fontina pizza (yum!) to their aptly-named Carnage (pepperoni, pancetta, fennel sausage, provolone and smoked mozzarella plays carnage with your taste buds!), you really can’t go wrong. It’s a little pricy but their Happy Hour (from 5-7) serves up their “pie of the moment” for around $11.
We’ll end with LaRocco’s Pizzeria where the pizza comes NY style and has a thin crust. This pizza is truly delicious and comes in many styles; from the Puttanesca (plump artichoke hearts, black olives) to the WhiteStone (ricotta, mozzarella, Parmesan and fresh garlic) to everything in between. It’s not cheap but the food more than makes up for it – and along with the pizza comes calzones, salads, sandwiches and some Italian dishes. This is pretty close to NY pizza so we heartily recommend it.
And there you go! A handful of some of the best pizza joints in Culver City; so much cheese that you can’t go wrong! We hope to see you there.
