Along a rather industrial stretch of Raymond Avenue, there is a rather unassuming mixed use complex. It is home to Pie Life Pizza. Here, from a (literal) hole in the wall, glorious New York slices are served, piping hot and delicious.
Yeah, this pizza joint offers the cruelest of temptations to members of the crossfit place next door…
The “Daily Special” basically makes it pretty much impossible to order just one slice of the offerings here…
Mushroom slice, pepperoni slice, cheese slice… All simply delicious. The crust is not too hard, not too limp, with just the right amount of sauce-to-cheese ratio.
Pepperoni curls into gorgeous cups. I’m surprised this place isn’t more mobbed. Pie Life Pizza is easily amongst the best by-the-slice New York-style pizzerias in Southern California in my book.
Yes, they offer whole pies as well. The selections can change daily, depending on what’s fresh and good. Parking is pretty easy, along Raymond Avenue (and of course also in the small business complex lot).
