So LA Eater's 16 places to get a killer slice of pizza in Los Angele, has been a hit with me. I have tried three places; Pie Life Pizza in Pasadena, Pizzanista, and Pellicola and I loved all three places. Joe's Pizza was next up on my list. When I saw Joe's Pizza on the list, I thought I had tried and really liked the Santa Monica location. But, that location has nothing to do with this Joe's Pizza-which also has locations in West Hollywood, Hollywood, and Sherman Oaks.
Located in a very busy and gentrified part of downtown LA, Joe's Pizza is a small restaurant that caters to the late night crowd. There are a few tables and a counter for people to eat in. There are 10-12 pizzas sold by the slice, but I wanted a freshly baked pizza.
18in mushroom and jalapeno pizza, $23.98. $18 for cheese pizza plus $2 per topping. But, on their printed menu the prices for toppings are listed as $3 for the first topping and $2 for each additional. First time I've ever heard of that.
This was a great pizza! The crust was firm, with great texture! The cheese was gooey and plenitful. While there could be a few more mushrooms and jalapenos, there were fresh. The jalapenos were huge too. The sauce was mild but added a nice flavor to the pizza. I really liked this pizza.
Service is good. The people are nice and helpful.
I would go back to Joe's Pizza again!! LA Eater is now 4 for 4! All four places I've tried from their list have been great!
