Okay so I have never actually been to Italy..but I always try to trust my gut and my gut tells me that D’Amores brings me that much closer to the country of love..or is it the country of pasta?
It’s one darn good pizza place!!! Well actually seven darn good places..they have locations all over LA from Malibu to Tarzana to West 3rd street.
I was first introduced to D’Amores because they were kind enough to send over an amazing gluten free crust cheese pizza to the Benefit make-up event that I hosted..I took one bite and said WTF..if the plain cheese is this good then the rest of the menu must be amazing.
Little back story..I was scheduled to photograph D’Amores on Superbowl Sunday.. I went and I waited..and the dang place was so filled with pizza orders that Christie (the owners daughter) and I decided that maybe I should come back another day..So a few weeks later I did.. and boy am I glad I did.
D’Amores actually imports the water and flour that they use to make their pizza from Italy…Pause for reaction!!! The outcome… yummy thin crust pizza with flavor that is out of this world.
Now I was privileged enough to have quite a few selections off the Pizza menu.. they were all amazing..but my favorites are: bare with me while I simply quote the menu..
Our signature Pizza – No tomato Sauce Fresh spinach & onion sautéed in olive oil and fresh garlic; topped with roasted peppers, ricotta, Romano and mozzarella cheeses
PIZZA DELLA CHRISTIANA
Buffalo Mozzarella, Prosciutto, sautéed wild mushrooms, Basil Pesto topped with roasted pine nuts and fresh tomatoes (no Tomato sauce)
Fresh Buffalo Mozzarella, fresh Basil leaves, Heirloom tomatoes, Prosciutto and Tomato sauce
D’AMORES BBQ CHICKEN PIZZA
JTP Hickory marinated chicken breast, red Bermuda onion, mozzarella and fresh cilantro.
I honestly could not have explained it better..
On the weekends they are open until 4am.
All crusts can me made gluten free and vegan cheese is available.
And did I mention that each slice is around 106 calories..YES!!
Oh and if you are not into pizza..there is an entire menu of other options.
A little pizza place called D’Amores…I “Like”..
