800 Degrees Pizza, Los Angeles, CA

800 Degrees Pizza Restaurant Review

: Chef Anthony Carron, former Michael Mina corporate chef, created this pizza concept named for the temperature of the wood-burning ovens. If you are not discouraged by the line that can stretch way outside the door --- at least it must mean that people like it --- you will be able to build your very own pizza by selecting among more than forty toppings that are right in front of you behind a long display. Proteins include Sicilian anchovies and prosciutto di Parma sliced to order. Among vegetarian options are roasted garlic, caramelized onions, peppadews and organic heirloom cherry tomatoes. Add smoked provolone or truffle cheese from Italy. If you are too lazy to decide what to put on the pizza, choose one of the classic or specialty pies. It's whisked into the (yes, 800-degree) oven and cooked in about 60 seconds; you then grab it and choose your table or take it home. All of the pies are topped with fresh mozzarella and a drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil and come with a thin crust, as is the case with the original pizza that was created in Naples in 1889. Soft drinks come from an Italian-designed Pininfarina soda machine that allows you to create 300 varieties of soda. You can start with a salad and finish with gelato. Wine and beer are available. Thumbs up for the original beautiful Art D├ęco ceiling and the cheap prices. Other locations.
