I have a new favorite pizzaria. La Piazza Al Forno opened in downtown Glendale three weeks ago at a spot on Glendale Avenue facing Murhpy Park.
Wood Fired Brick Oven Pizza.
Yes, there is a wood-fired brick oven in the place. You can watch them make your pizza, stoke the oven with chopped wood, and enjoy a little of downtown Glendale. La Piazza Al Forno is family-owned and family-run. They take great pride in their pizza, and they should.
Even the crust is great. Oh the crust. Thin. So tasty that I could eat it all by itself. Fresh Mozzarella. And they don't smother it in sauce.
While you are waiting for your pizza, order some stuffed shrimp. I did and they were a marvel of perfection. It's so easy to overcook shrimp but these were perfect.
