WESTWOOD, Calif. — With five locations in California and another in Vegas, D’Amore’s Pizza is a must, especially for any East Coast tourists in the area.
The owning family is from Boston. The grandmother/matriarch even brought Boston water to California to make her pizza dough with when they first started up. You can smell their pizza a block away. This is a real beacon of light in a town full of “California Pizza Kitchens.”
Try the pizza bianco ($18.95-$24.95), white pizza with fresh spinach and onion cooked in olive oil with garlic, roasted red peppers, ricotta, romano and mozzarella cheeses. There’s also a BBQ chicken pizza ($18.95-$24.95) with hickory bbq sauce with red Bermuda onions, cilantro, and cheese.
Give these guys a try, especially if you’re homesick for something back east.
