Little Dynamite – Mar Vista

There may be other pan pizza restaurants in Los Angeles, but Little Dynamite (formerly Bootleg Pizza) makes a unique thick crust, frequently selling out since they’ve opened in Mar Vista. Their whole pan pizzas (6 slices) easily serve 2 people, with slices available from 12pm to 3pm.

I placed an advance order for a whole Cheese Louise and added a slice of their special pizza of the day. The dough is super fluffy (I wish my pillow was this soft) with a nice tart tomato sauce.

The special had hot Italian sausage, roasted tomatoes and ricotta – my only gripe was that it was a little light on the toppings. Their Pep’d Up seems to have a better ratio of pepperoni to crust. I scarfed down 3-1/2 pieces of their deceptively light pizza, before I realized that I was quite full. Oops.

With a few seats at the window and a couple of tables outside, Little Dynamite is primarily a takeout operation. If you’re looking to pick up an entire pie, definitely place your online order in advance so you don’t get disappointed by finding out they’re sold out for the day!
