What do you get when you mix traditional New York style thin-crust pizza and fresh, local California ingredients? Throw in a dash of “eclectic” and a pinch of “hip” courtesy of the downtown arts district… not to mention the super chill and friendly skateboarding-surfer owners… Voila! you’ve got yourself Pizzanista.
Pizzanista is an unassuming little restaurant in the middle of nowheresville… and those are the best finds after all. I’ve driven up this downtown street a handful of times and never once noticed it. Granted, they have only been open since late summer 2011, but locals are already in the know about this little gem.
