While Los Angeles is home to many awesome things worth seeing, enjoying and snapping a nice photo of to share with the ol’ Instagram, pizza is usually not thought of as one of them. And that’s a shame because LA does pizza well. Really well. And even more so, creatively.

For stop #2 on our unofficial pizza world tour, we made the rounds at our seven favorite spots to grab a slice or eight in the City of Angels. Below is a quick list you can bookmark if you find yourself looking for a good bite in the area. Let the recommended pies be your guiding light.
