You don’t really need a special reason to order from Pizzana. At his Brentwood and West Hollywood pizzerias, Naples native Daniele Uditi is making some of the best pies around. Both his traditional offerings, like a great margherita, and more creative ones, like a stunning pizza version of cacio e pepe, excel. But now, there are other reasons to order.
The restaurant has been cooking up free pies for doctors, nurses, and emergency medical workers. On GoFundMe, Uditi and his biz partners Charles and Candace Nelson (of the Sprinkles cupcake empire) have raised nearly $40,000 to fund their efforts.
If that weren’t enough, the restaurant has also been offerings its famous, limited edition sub sandwiches here and there. This week, you can order up the Padrino, a tasty beast packed with spicy soppressata, pepperoncini, provolone, Calabrian slaw, tomato, pickle, and aioli on housemade ciabatta. Next week, a new sandwich is promised. Keep your eyes on the Pizzana Instagram.
