Hollywood Pies - Delivering Chicago Deep Dish to Los Angeles

*Post by Mark.

Hey guys, I just remembered why I was so damn fat when I lived in Chicago. It may have had something to do with Giordano's, Lou Malnati's, and Gino's East. Chicago-style pies are like the modified muscle cars of pizza. Sure, I like thin crust, New York-style, and Neopalitan pies - prefer them even - but every now and then there's nothing better than stuffing a cholestorol-packed mass of melting mozzarella, greasy cornbread crust, and gobs of sausage down your gullet. This is America, dammit. 

That's where Hollywood Pies comes in. Hollywood Pies may not have been the first establishment to bring the goodness of Chicago pizza to Los Angeles. Oak Fire in West Hollywood serves deep dish and Masa pulls Chicago style pies from their ovens in Echo Park. But Hollywood Pies arguably does it the best. 

 

 

Hollywood Pies is currently just a phone call away. Pies can be picked up curbside at their kitchen at 1427 S. Robertson Blvd. or delivered at no extra charge anywhere within a 5-mile radius. Because of the extended cooking time and the generous delivery radius, a little patience may be required, but it's totally worth it in the end. For those less willing to wait, check the website for details - you might find a nice little discount in it for you if you're willing to pick them up yourself. 

 

 

After our delivery guy swiped my credit card with his iPhone, we were pretty eager to dig into our two pies. We got a large cheese ($19) and a large Mancini ($26) which comes stuffed with mild Italian sausage, fresh green peppers and onions. All pies are made with whole milk mozzarella. The crispy golden crust bears an uncanny resemblance to the cornmeal heavy crusts you'd find in the windy city. 

 

 

This is definitely as close to the real deal you'll get without the four hour flight. Rumor has it that Hollywood Pies plans to open the restaurant up for some outdoor seating in the near future. We're looking forward to it. About the only thing that could make these pies better is even less time between their oven and my mouth.

Sigh... how I miss Giordano's spinach stuffed pizza! Though yes, I definitely was a good 15 lbs heavier than I am now back in those days of stuffed pies, so perhaps better I have half a country between me and them now. Will definitely have to try Hollywood Pies soon though! You know, for old times sake. ;)
