Pizzeria Mozza is almost too popular to function.
A reservation at a decent hour (not talking early-bird or night-owl) is always tough to come by and it’s always packed to the gills.
I almost wish someone would call in a bomb threat just so I can see what the place would look like without people. Well, I don’t wish that at all, actually. Forget I said anything.
The good news is that the pizzas here are AWESOME. Light and crispy crust, flavorful toppings and not nearly as expensive as Osteria Mozza next door.
Nancy’s Chopped Salad is highly recomended to balance out all the pizza action or you could just order another pizza and eat your veggies earlier in the day.
On second thought, just do that.
We ordered their most famous pie, the Squash Blossom pizza (not sure why it’s $5 more than all the other pizzas) and it’s quite exquisite. The sweetness of the tomatoes balances out the slightly bitter squash blossoms.
Also popular is the Fennel Sausage and Bianca but you pretty much can’t go wrong no matter which one you choose.
The Butterscotch Budino is also a must-order. It’s so delicious. It’s lighter than the (slightly more yummy) version at Gjelina which means each person can order their own. The whole sharing thing is over.
If you live in or visit LA, you HAVE to come here. No question. If you ever try to leave LA without dining here, border/airport security will detain you indefinitely if you cannot produce a Mozza receipt.
First world problems.
Also, that was kind of a dumb joke.
