If you've ever wanted to have a slice of heaven, you have to try Joe's Pizza. With locations on the Sunset Strip, Hollywood, Downtown and now Sherman Oaks (it opened in December of 2018) this New York style pizza joint offers up a plethora of pies, served by the humongous slice or as a full pizza.
Giuseppe (Joe) Vitale is the co-owner of this incredible pizza restaurant along with his partner Rob Binokur. They offer a variety of flavors, which can appeal to every discerning taste. Angelenos and New Yorkers alike have flocked to this hidden gem.
“Pizza is every person's best friend. Joe had the perfect New York pizza, so why not offer it to people here in Los Angeles?” says Rob.
There are many great options on the menu. Start your meal off with the tasty Garlic Knots. The Cheese Pizza is a perfect slice for those who like the traditional taste, with shredded mozzarella cheese and marinara sauce. Or you can add some meat with the Pepperoni Pizza.
“I try to make people come in and enjoy and see that even in Los Angeles there is a truly New York-style pizza,” says Joe.
For a more eclectic version of a great pizza, you should try the White Pizza. It's perfect for those who want to skip the marinara sauce, and it features creamy ricotta and mozzarella cheese topped with fresh garlic and parsley. The Grandma Pizza offers fresh slices of mozzarella, basil and Joe's Famous Grandma slice. The Meat Lover's Pizza has a taste that will satisfy any carnivore, with its sausage, pepperoni, meatballs, shredded mozzarella and marinara sauce.
What's Joe's favorite pizza on the menu? “All of them,” he says. “Usually I want to eat them right as they come out of the oven. That is the best, nice and crunchy!”
Joe's offers a sense of community for people that love good thin sliced New York pizza. Not in the mood for a slice? Joe's also offers Hero Sandwiches. Everything in these sandwiches is made fresh. Rob recommends the meatball hero – it's unbelievable. There are also choices like the Chicken Parm Hero, the Veggie Hero, and the Sausage and Pepper Hero. As well, there are also an incredible array of pastas including Spaghetti Marinara, Pasta Primavera, Penne Marinara and Cheese Ravioli. And don't forget the Calzones and Salads!
Joe's is always looking to expand their menu. They've recently made an addition to the menu of a Vegan Pizza as well as a cauliflower crust Gluten-Free Pizza and they definitely plan to expand their horizons so the all of the Valley can experience the taste that puts Joe's on the map.
The restaurant offers in-house eating, pickup, delivery and catering so be sure to stop by. There is also a Pizza Truck which is a mobile version of “Joe’s Pizza.” The pizza truck offers fresh pizza to hungry fans all over LA, selling it by the pie and by the slice. It’s schedule and locations are revealed daily via social media. No fuss, no mess, just great pizza! You won't regret it!
