Still looking for great pizza in OC and I've tried quite a few too. Everybody have their own tastes and I like the family owned "hole in the wall" pizza joints.
Here are a few of my favorites:
Mama Cozza's, Anaheim (med. thin crust): Cheese pizza.
Biagio's, Lake Forest (med. thin crust): Pepperoni, onions and tomatoes, or Pepperoni mushrooms and onions. Mushrooms are canned not fresh but have a nice flavor. Sausage is not too good here.
Here a few of my former favorites:
Now defunct-Donatelli's, Costa Mesa (thick crust): Donatelli's Special (everything on it).
Now Defunct-Ecco's Pizza, Orange (thick crust): Cheese or other.
Now different owners-Marri's Pizza, Anaheim (thick crust): Sausage, mushrooms, peppers and onions or pepperoni only.
Now different owners-Antonucci's, Newport Beach (med. thin crust): Cheese.
Sadly, I don't have many favorites left in OC. Any suggestions?
