9 Pizzicotto
Superb pizzas reign at this noisy Italian restaurant in tony Brentwood, a casual, fun place that attacts Brentwood locals and visiting celebrities. In addition to pizzas, the pastas are homemade — try the gnocchi, which is rumored to be the best in town. This little (the emphasis is on little) place with the big servings is always busy so don't go without a reservation. Casual dress is fine. (310-442-7188)

8 Los Angeles NY Pizza
It's not big on atmosphere, but customers don't come here for decor — they come for pies, available by the slice, by the pizza, and Sicilian-style. Wallet-friendly prices are good if you want to tackle a pie on your own or if you want to make it a night out with friends. The place's pizza is typically New York-style, with a thin crust that makes it easy to fold. Toppings range from the basic to the more extravagant; pile on as much or as little as you wish.

7 Casa Bianca
In existence for over five decades, this local legend is renowned for its old-fashioned pizza pies — crispy, thin-crusted, and topped with plenty of garlic. Red-checkered tablecloths and shakers full of pepper flakes and grated parmesan add priceless retro atmosphere to an already fantastic meal. While pizza is unquestionably the star of the show, several pasta dishes are also on offer, including spaghetti carbonara, linguini with pesto, and vegetarian lasagna. Take note — the wait can be long, and only cash is accepted. (323-256-9617)

6 Mulberry Street Pizzeria
You don't have to go to Italy for a pie that, while thin-crusted, piles on fresh vegetables and white and red sauces worthy of lip-licking. Actress Cathy Moriarty (yes, the one from Raging Bull) attracts movie moguls with her larger-than-life pizzas (literally...these are large pies) and meatball subs, so hang around and you just might spot someone famous with tomato-basil sauce on her cheek.

5 Trattoria Farfalla
Crisp, crunchy, thin-crust pizzas are served fresh and hot at this Los Feliz trattoria. Twelve varieties of pie can be had, and they range from classics like margherita and pepperoni to more adventurous choices like Alla Americana — barbecued chicken, mozzarella, smoked gouda, and red onions. The Vegetariana is a boon to non-meat eaters and comes loaded with eggplant, bell peppers, mushrooms, and radicchio. Save room for traditional Italian desserts like tiramisu and fruit tarts.

4 California Pizza Kitchen — Studio City
California Pizza Kitchen is synonymous with gourmet pizza and is the chain that put designer pies on the map. Barbecue pizza, tandoori chicken pizza, and seafood pizza are all available, hot, quick, and for a reasonable price. For something that doesn't come in slices, choose portobello mushroom ravioli, jambalaya, or a grilled rosemary chicken sandwich. CPK is a godsend for families with kids and business people looking for lunch on the run. There are several locations throughout the LA area. (818-505-6437)

3 Village Pizzeria
Founded by Brooklyn-ites, this pizza joint is decorated with New York-inspired memorabilia and strives to keep the spirit of the Big Apple alive with delicious, hand-spun pizzas. Dough is made daily and contains no additives; toppings are ripe, fresh California produce. Choose from Neapolitan (thin) or Sicilian (thick) crust, and then pile on ingredients like homemade meatballs and sausage, roma tomatoes, roasted red peppers, pineapple, feta cheese, breaded eggplant, and cilantro. Hero sandwiches and pastas can also be had. (323-465-5566)

2 Pace
This cozy spot ups the charm factor with a predominantly brick interior, art-glass light fixtures, and folksy art that recalls the '60s. There's nothing retro about the menu, however — Pace's pizzas are up-to-date with gourmet ingredients and creative taste combinations. Try the Poseidon Pie, with chopped clams, jalapeno, garlic, and chili flakes, or opt for something more traditional with the basic Peace Pie — tomatoes, mozzarella, and oregano. Hera's Pie, with pesto, mushrooms, arugula, and fontina cheese, is another popular choice. Appetizers, pastas, and meat dishes complete the menu. (323-654-8583)

1 Pizzeria Mozza
Pizzeria Mozza is known as "the best pizza in town" for good reason. In 2006, celebrity chefs Nancy Silverton and Mario Batali teamed up with restaurateur Joe Bastianich to launch this notable pizzeria where lines still run out the door seven days a week. Known for handcrafted crusts both airy and crisp, the pizza offerings range from the traditional "Margherita" to the eccentric "Squash Blossom." Take a seat at the counter to witness the pizza magic in the making or grab a table- but be sure to order dessert, which is just as amazing as the pizza. For once, the Los Angeles hype is real.
