Here Comes A New Challenger! The Mouth-Watering, Delectable, Stunning Sourdough Neapolitan Pizzas of La Morra Pizzeria [Thoughts + Pics]

As always thank you for the epic reviews but based on your emojis I think I have to order one of everything


Hi @JeetKuneBao,

:smile: Thanks. That actually reminds me:

La Morra Pizzeria rotates through the various flavors each week (probably due to limited space, and lack of a permanent kitchen), so they usually offer 4 - 5 different Pizzas at a time, so that was another reason we ended up visiting a few times (that and it was delicious). :slight_smile:

I think the Margherita and Napoli are the 2 flavors that are always on the menu.


Thanks for the reviews, as always @Chowseeker1999. I’ve been trying to get to La Morra to no avail because of the location and schedule, but it looks like I need to try harder.

PSA: From their IG, it looks like they’ll be at Tabula Rasa this Saturday (1/4) from 2pm - 7pm.

So glad you got to try la morra it is our favorite neo neopolitan in the city! Thanks for your copious reviews and research.

The Bianco looks amazing will have to try that one the next time if its offered

Been dying to try this. I’m a huge fan of the bar and go a few times a year, but always on weekends. It’s such a great spot.

Great stuff but not exactly new. Only the oven is Neapolitan-style, the pizza’s one of the best of the modern California hybrids, up there with Delfina and Mozza. Excellent value, too, though my bar tab always more than makes up for that (not that I’m complaining, I love Tabula Rasa).


What’s the price per pie?

$15-20 and the pies are big enough for two people.

2 regular people or 2 FTC people?


If you usually order two individual-size Neapolitan pies, you might want one of these for yourself.

I would say one pie per person min, I could eat two easily

Hi @NYCtoLA,

Thanks! :slight_smile: Yah their limited hours makes it challenging, but hopefully they get a brick and mortar location soon (or add a 2nd day a week to a long-term pop-up)… Thanks for the heads up on this Saturday (today)! Looks like they are switching things up (and Saturday is much more convenient).

Hi @hungryhungryhippos,

Thanks! After @ipsedixit, I saw your posts as well and that helped. We fell in love with La Morra after our first visit, so good! :slight_smile:

Do you like their Clam Pie as well? What’s your favorite of the ones you’ve tried so far? (And yes the Bianco is amazing.)

Hi @js76wisco,

As robert said, these are bigger than many standard pies (e.g., it’s bigger than Pizzeria Mozza’s pies). If you’re at Tabula Rasa, a nice craft beer on tap and 1 pizza is pretty solid. But I could see some of our FTC’ers polishing off 2 pies. :wink:

I think once they get a long term place and introducing some nice sides / starters would help balance out a meal with just 1 pie.

Darn, finally doing it on a Saturday, but it’s a bar, so I likely can’t bring my offspring… Maybe I’ll stack the kids on top of each other and go with the long trench coat disguise.


I’ve never had the clam. But that looks amazing. I’ve only had one clam pie in my life not being an east coaster so I definitely hope to catch them offering that.

Our favorites in no particular order are margherita, the njuda with onions, foraged mushroom, and their sun gold tomato pizza bursting with tomato-ey goodness.

Hi @hungryhungryhippos,

I think you’ll like their Clam Pie, amazing! I’ve never seen the Sun Gold Tomato Pizza, I’ll have to keep an eye out for it next year when it’s Tomato season again. :slight_smile: Thanks.

I could not. I can eat a whole pie but that’s a dinner in itself.

They have a type 42 license, so no minors. I’m surprised to see that, most wine bars are licensed as restaurants (type 41).

La Morra sets up in the parking lot behind the bar, so you could probably walk up that way without going through the bar. Driveway is around the corner past the hotel’s.
