Masa of Echo Park Bakery & Cafe doesn't exactly sound like a pizza place, but it is their Chicago Deep Dish that has made them famous throughout Los Angeles. This family-run restaurant bakes the pizza dough fresh every day, uses locally sourced ingredients for their homemade sauces and imports special elements straight from Chicago (including Scala's Authentic Hot Giardiniera, those spicy pickled vegetables that go so well with the pizza). The pies have a cornmeal crust and are made to order, with any topping you desire; that means your pizza takes 40 minutes to make, so settle in and get comfortable with a nice glass of Masa's House Chianti. There are plenty of other choices on the menu, too, from burgers and panini to pastas, salads and even meatloaf. But trust us, the deep-dish pizza is the bomb.

- Best for Italian Because: This mom-and-pop pizza place is a perfect example of what a neighborhood place should be, which is why Angelenos drive for miles to come here!
- Best for Homestyle Because: This unassuming place near Dodger Stadium is the best spot for pizza in all of L.A.; worth the drive even if you don't live close.
