Windy City Pizza visits Pizzeria Mozza in L.A.

A long awaited trip to L.A to visit Pizzeria Mozza – Nancy Silverton’s (La Brea Bakery and a great chef) introducing L.A. to classic Neapolitan Pizza some years ago. At Windy City we do a thin crust pizza called “Chicagopolian”, Neopolitan inspired but built for a hardier appetite.
