Who knew that if you place a pizza in an 800 degree pizza oven, that it could be cooked to perfection in one minute? In Westwood Village, there is a new Neapolitan Pizzeria across from the Armand Hammer museum, 800 Degrees. It made its debut just after New Year’s Day.
The Umami Group, Adam Fleischman and Allen Ravert, along with Executive Chef Anthony Carron have created a new concept in pizza that will forever change the pizza world.
“I woke up with this idea three years ago,” Carron said. “If I can cook a pizza in one minute, why can’t I set up a restaurant ‘Chipotle’ style?”
He traveled to Naples, Italy and tasted a lot of pizzas to perfect the ones he makes here in Los Angeles.
What I like about this new restaurant are the prices. Where else can you get a fresh, piping hot Neapolitan pizza with handmade dough and fresh ingredients for $5? The pizza Margherita with crushed local tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, parmigiano, reggiano, olive oil and fresh basil is only $6. This is not a small personal pan pizza, rather a complete meal with 6 to 8 slices.
