Leading up to this year's Best of L.A. issue (due out Oct. 4) — and probably beyond, at this rate — we'll be counting down, in no particular order, 100 of our favorite dishes.
40: Sicilian Slice at Pizzanista.
The thick-crusted Sicilian pizza at Pizzanista, cut into a long rectangle and covered in a heavy amount of tomato sauce, won us over on first bite. Sure, this might not be on the same level as L&B's Spumoni or DiFara's in Brooklyn, but the tangy oregano-spiked sauce and the chewy and dense bread — which resembles a fine focaccia — are good enough to put this Sicilian pizza into a class all it's own in L.A.
You can order a whole pie baked on a sheet pan as large as your nana's lasagna, or you can pick it up by the slice. Either way, the slice with four sides is our go-to order when hitting up this late-night slice joint in Downtown's Arts District.
