410 W Main St Ste 100
Alhambra, CA 91801
I first heard of Nancy's Pizza when I drove by a new building on Foothill Blvd. in La Verne and saw a sign that said future home of Nancy's Pizza. A quick search and I found out Nancy's is a Chicago area chain that is expanding to Southern California. Nancy's claims to have invented the stuffed pizza! The difference between deep dish pizza and stuffed pizza, is that there is a layer of dough and sauce, on top of the stuffed pizza.
Nancy's Pizza in Alhambra is across from Alondra Hot Wings, is in a mixed use building that has retail space on the ground floor and condos or apartments on the upper levels. Nancy's is next to Al's Chicago Beef, another chain that serves a Chicago staple- Italian beef sandwiches!
Medium, Original 2in, Nana's Special, baby spinach, mushrooms and mozzarella cheese, $23.98. There is no cornmeal on the crust. But, the crust was buttery and flakely. There was plenty of cheese, but the toppings were pretty spare. And it was only mushrooms and spinach, not expensive toppings. The pizza is pretty good but very pricey, almost $24 for a medium???
Service was pretty good. I called in my order, because I know stuffed/deep dish pizza take awhile to bake. I saw Nancy's menu online, but forgot that they called baby spinach, mushrooms, and mozzarella was called Nana's Special. The young lady who took my phone order didn't know the menu and had to look at the menu to figure out I wanted the Nana's Special. Not that big of a deal but, something that needs to be worked on. The pizza was ready when I arrived, so that was good. I asked for a box and the box can flat, not folded. Again, not a big deal, but come on, fold the box.
My go to places for deep dish pizza in LA are Masa of Echo Park, Hollywood Pies, and Union Pizza. Nancy's is pretty good but not worth the price.
