Has the great American slice joint officially made a comeback in Los Angeles? With last year’s arrival of spots like Town in Highland Park or Prime Pizza on Fairfax, it certainly seems that way. And now there’s another contender: Delicious Pizza, hidden away just east of Hauser on West Adams, which soft opened on Monday.
The long-vacant storefront has had weeds growing out of it since at least 2008, but secretively went under the knife late last year to become Delicious Pizza, which shares an owner (Mike Ross) and a logo with Delicious Vinyl, the record label on Sunset in Hollywood. There’s also Fred Sutherland, designer and longtime co-owner of Fred 62, while Travis Sutherland works the dough.
More than just a slice joint, though, Delicious Pizza is aiming to be an all-day restaurant, opening at 7 a.m. and running through the late evening (soft-open hours have the place closing at 11 p.m.). There will be pies (using organic, naturally fermented dough) sold whole or by the slice, any of which can be upgraded to fresh mozzarella by asking for things to be done ‘supreme.’ Sandwiches, salads and a few desserts round out the savory side, while early morning coffees and pastries make for a full day.
