Pitfire Artisan Pizza Review

Yum. Yum. Yum. I love pizza. It's my favorite food. During my artsy weekend in LA I had to visit an artisan pizza place. They bake these delicious babies in a wood-fired kiln that reaches over 900 degrees Fahrenheit. The ingredients are mouth watering local organic products that are hand chosen from the farmer's market. I'm lactose intolerant, but this pizza place catered to it. They had Daiya vegan cheese to put on any pizza I chose. I ordered the Artichoke Veggie that had roasted tomatos, Kalamata olives, spinach, and grape leaves spread throughout the top. The crust was obviously hand tossed that morning, mm the way it broke apart.

For the side, my sister and I ordered the "Farmers Market Plate" which was a blend of vegetables tossed in extra virgin olive oil, topped with freshly baked sourdough bread. Roasted corn, yellow and green zucchini, purple and yellow potatoes, and heirloom tomatoes were a great mix. I didn't like the amount of potatoes because of how much starch the pizza and sourdough provided, but the corn and zucchini were yummy.

We only ordered one pizza and one appetizer and it was more than enough food. The drinks were housemade watermelon lemonade with fresh watermelon juice that was delicious! I love watermelon juice and to mix it with lemonade was genius. Great job Pitfire. I'll be back!
