You can’t go to Purgatory in this lifetime, but Purgatory will come to you. Purgatory Pizza, that is … and only if you live downtown … or are drinking there.

This new spot (takeout/delivery only) is owned and operated by the former chef of Silver Lake’s popular Nicky D’s, and the pies are pretty much like Nicky D’s when it’s on its game, says 9thandBroadway. Crust is thin, sauce is nice and herby, and there’s a spicy option—El Diablo, of course.

A large pizza with three toppings and a couple of sodas is about $20.
