Pavich's Brick Oven Pizzeria in San Pedro

Ernie | Apr 14, 2009 04:10 PM

On the way home from a bike ride over the weekend, I happened to stumble upon Pavich's Brick Oven Pizzeria, a tiny takeout-only pizzeria in my neighborhood. The pizzeria was closed at the time, but the next day I came across a very favorable Los Angeles Times review so I had to check it out.

Well, last night I picked up a sausage and mushroom pizza and it was absolutely outstanding! Very thin, crispy crust with nicely charred bits, fresh mushroom and sausage, good quality cheese, and not greasy at all. This by far the best pizza I have had in San Pedro if not the greater LA area. The style reminds me of the better places you might find in NYC. Be warned though, the pizza only comes in one size -- gigantic! However I think they have slices available too. Also, there really isn't any seating, just a cashier counter and one small table outside so best to order for pick-up. As far as I know, they don't deliver.

Pavich's also has a couple of very interesting Croatian dishes on the menu that I hope to try – that is if I ever make it past the amazing pizza. I am so delighted to have such a fantastic little pizzeria so close to home!
