Mother Dough is a charming, neighborhoody upscale pizza parlor in the Los Feliz area serving Neopolitan pizzas. Which, I guess means thin crust? Not sure, lemme look it up.
OK, according to Wikipedia, Neapolitan pizzas are generally made with tomatoes and mozzarella….uh…how that is any different from a regular pizza, is anyone’s guess.
Finding a parking spot near Mother Dough proved comical.
Well…not for me. I’m a parking space GOD. If it’s there, I will find it. Valet be damned to hell (in a handbasket)!
My friend Clyde…not so much. Any spaces located more than a block from the destination are void as they would require actual physical activity on his part.
If the located parking space is not 40 feet long, Clyde will not take it as his vehicle will surely not fit.
If the located parking space is found 10 feet from any other object such as a garbage can or muttering homeless person, it is nixed because his vehicle will surely be damaged.
Anyhoo, Mother Dough’s thing is simplicity and high quality ingredients.
While many of the other gourmet pizza joints are piling high the unusual ingredients, MD’s offerings are all very basic and traditional.
When you bite into the oven roasted tomatoes, you don’t wish there were also ramps, ferns, nettles or poison ivy hanging out on your pizza.
What’s the point in messing with perfection?
That being said, I enjoy all kinds of pizzas and if you want to throw some lawn clippings or bovine organs on my ‘za, so be it.
Even bad pizza is good pizza.
