Help! I am at wits' end. I am hoping you can help me with my Great Pizza Dilemma.
I just moved to LA from New Jersey. I am a pizza fanatic and I'm very particular (OK, a little crazed) about my pizza. It must be a big, floppy, greasy, cheesy New York style slice. I will accept no substitutes. Places like Pizzeria Mozza or Masa are nice, I even like them, but it ain't pizza.
To that end, I've been going to pizza places all over town looking for the right place, but I haven't quite found it yet, so I wanted to ask for suggestions. I have tried these places and while they were all very good, they weren't didn't quite hit my hit my "this is it! This is the perfect pizza!" button, (so i.e. suggest a place other than one of these):
Joe's in Santa Monica
Joe's in Hollywood
Valentino's in Manhattan Beach
Village Pizzeria (both locations)
So my question is: where can I get a big, greasy, floppy, New York style pizza slice or pie other than these places I've mentioned? I especially like places that know how to put to on extra cheese: this is a picture of precisely what I have in mind.
And please no philosophical discussions about whether I have the "right" taste in pizza; you can argue that Mozza is better all day and I won't be convinced; I'm too far gone for that. I just want to find a place that has the kind of pizza I described for myself, I'm not saying it's what everyone on the planet should be eating.
