Everybody loves a pizza party. Let these 5 pizza joints teach you the meaning of delizioso.

1 Casa Bianca

There’s a reason that the line of hungry patrons patiently waiting to enter Casa Bianca is always out-the-door: the pizza. Made with a crispy-on-the-outside-chewy-on-the-inside-crust and tart tomato sauce that lends a hint of acidity to the pie and acts as perfect foil to the mozzarella’s creaminess, this is the kind of stuff that you wish mama used to make. Expect a least a forty-five minute wait upon arrival. I’m not kidding about those crowds.

2 Jacopo’s

Jacopo’s has had Beverly Hills residents clamoring for more since its inception in 1970. Guests can build their own pies with a large variety of toppings ranging from fried eggplant to Polly O Mozzarella or pick pies from Jacopo’s extensive menu. My personal fave is the spinach and artichoke dip pie. Trust me.

3 Terroni

Serious slice addicts will pledge major allegiance to the pizza at Terroni, a Canadian mainstay with an outpost in located in West Hollywood. With over 30 different takes on the street fare, Terroni pizzas are famous for their . . . ahem . . . uncut appearance. Who knew the best pizza came from Canada?

4 Vito’s Pizza

New Yorkers can be a bit . . . persnickety when it comes to slices. But Vito’s Pizza, with their thin crusts, tangy tomato sauce and stringy mozzarella is sure to satisfy even the most selective east coast transplant. Tip: start with an order of the eggplant parmesan—you won’t be disappointed.

5 Zelo's

A hidden gem of the San Gabriel Valley, Zelo’s has attracted a cult following who don’t mind making the trek for Zelo’s singular pizzas. Fans of Zelo’s can order succulent pies with toppings ranging from classic (homemade sausage) to wacky (fresh corn) but the real zenith of Zelo’s is their deep-dish corn meal crust.
