Pizza Week on What's To Eat LA: Mulberry Street Pizza


240 S. Beverly Dr.
Beverly Hills, CA 90212
(310) 247-8100
Sun-Thur. 11AM-11PM
Fri-Sat 11AM-Midnight

Beverly Hills pizza that makes you question how much you want to spend on pizza. What an opener huh? I will keep today's post mega brief as time has gotten cut suddenly short thanks to a new project.

This is a huge freaking pizza. The pizza box, as shown below, doesn't contain the sheer size of this thing when it arrives home. I'm 6'2" and one slice of this was one and a half of my hands length. Now, size isn't everything. And, while I will say that Mulberry's isn't what they used to be, they still can hang with the big boys(no pun intended). The crust is soft, but not the kind that falls apart when you fold it. That's right, fold it, like they do in New York. The cheese is chewy. It lies somewhere between fondue and pulling it 2 feet from your face. It's fantastic. This is yet another place though that, though they have a great cheese pizza, they super shine with their toppings. If it's meat (as a generalization) on a pizza, they have a superb selection and it seems almost tailored to the cheeses they use. Bravo! I'll also like to mention that they have a White pizza that's pretty hard to beat.

Enjoy the harsh lighting of my apartment

If I may change the tone for just a moment, let me comment on their one downfall that many have a problem with (and me sometimes when I'm feeling middle class). The pizza, while solidly a great pizza, can lean on the pricey side. The prices go for about $18 to $27 per pie. Now to some who just want pizza, this can be a shying away point. If you just want the cheese pizza though, that really isn't that bad a price at all. My advice is to remember how freaking huge the pizza is, remember the flavor, and if possible remember to have your friends to chip in!

(As you'll see on their web page, they have 2 more locations. One in Encino and a second one in Beverly Hills.)

Entree Price Range: Pizzas range from $18 to $27

It's certainly an epic pizza indeed. It was really hard choosing just 4 for this week but rest assured Pizza Buona has already been on my list of write-ups to cover. You are not the first person to praise about Pizza Buona. The first time I hung in Echo Park, people left and right were telling me about how freaking their pizza was. Oddly enough they too specified how amazing the Pepperoni is haha!

You must try Petrillos in San Gabriel on Valley Blvd. It is a different pizza than the others you have tried, but oh so good! Nicky D's is also good when eatten there, get the white clam with bacon.

Petrillos was awesome when I was living in Pasadena. Haven't been there in a while. Kind of had forgotten about it while living in LA. Nicky D's was one of the pizza spots I was debating about having for my first pizza week. They'll be there next time for sure. They're fantastic!
