Chef Michael Cimarusti (Providence; Connie & Ted’s): Mozza is the queen of the LA restaurant scene and deservedly so. My new favorite at the pizzeria is the slow-cooked broccoli pizza. It is as delicious as anything I have ever put in my mouth. And no, I’m not sharing. [Ed. note: Broccoli and Chilies Pizza only available seasonally]

Citizine Staff: A Mulberry slice is the closest thing to a NY pie slice in LA. The sauce-to-cheese-to-bread ratio is about as even as an Olympic gymnast’s temperament, and it shows. Don’t be afraid to flirt with the white pizza or pasta slice. If you’re a true champion getting carry out or delivery, try heating up your slice in a toaster oven for maximum flavor.
Chef Michael Fiorelli (Love & Salt): You don’t need to look any further than the simple Margherita pie to see that chef Steve Samson crushes it in the pizza department. The char on the crust is the real kicker.
