SoCal WFO Restaurants
Little Dom's in Los Feliz, Los angeles
I had a beautiful thin crust breakfast pizza - recomended!! Little Dom's - 2128 Hillhurst Ave. Los Angeles, CA 90027

Izza in San Clemente, Ca. - Also recomended
These folks only use Antico Molino Caputo flour and San Marzano tomatoes. And yes they will sell balls of dough. Tuesday night kids 10 and under eat free.. I don't know all of the details.
Izza Pizzeria - San Clemente Pizza featuring neapolitan style pizza

I've only been to Nicky D's once, but my wife often brings home pizza from here. They're in Silverlake, just north of downtown L.A. and very close to where we live.

Re: SoCal WFO Restaurants
We were down visiting some friends in SD this weekend and they were excited to take us to Pizzeria Bruno Napoletano off of Park Blvd. Not bad. There was a good, even char all the way around the crust. The bottom of the pizza was a little limp for my wife's tastes, but I thought it was still alright. I just thought they were a little heavy-handed on the cheese. The San Marzanos were sweet and the crust is 100 % Caputo.

I had the opportunity to eat at Osteria Mozza AND Mozza Pizzaria last month: Both are owned by Mario Batalli and Nancy Silverton. Mario I'm told is never there. He consulted on the Osteria Menu/Restaurant (they are adjacent to each other; 1 on Melrose Blvd, 1 on Highland Ave, same building, 2 different entrances) and Nancy is clearly in full charge of the wood fired pizza oven & recipes in the Pizzeria.

Pizzeria: REALLY the loudest restaurant I've ever been to. Waitress literally was screening across the table as I asked her to repeat, cupping my ears toward her and we all busted up laughing at how ridiculous it all was. Pizza crust superb. Unique toppings. BUT, we had wfo fired bone marrow: A 7" piece of shank, sawed the long way in half and roasted in wfo so the bone is searing hot, the marrow...HEAVENLY. Served in the long bone like a canoe. Will always order that. Next time, we'll sit along the bar to watch the cooks make and feed pizzas into the oven.
