The toppings are of the gourmet variety (think truffle cheese and prosciutto) and there are even some salad offerings and a few preset topping choices for those of us who get overwhelmed by too many options.
The pizzas come out blistered and crispy-crusted, and the quality is definitely there – my one caution would be overloading your pizza with a plethora of toppings (easy to do) as even the Neapolitan crust is thin and prone to sagging under excessive weight (say, the addition of an egg…).
Overall, it’s an excellent option wherever you come across it – there are plenty of locations beyond Westwood now – and even a quick one if you can manage to catch it without a line out the door. The simple but plentiful seating (at least in Westwood) is always crowded, but the turnover is quick, and hey – Diddy Riese is just up the street.
A pizza (personal size, but the big kind of personal) will run you $12 or $13 with a good bunch of toppings. Be a dear and pile on the goat cheese and the roasted garlic for me.
