Brooklyn Ave Pizza Co
The menu at this buzzy Boyle Heights pizzeria helmed by chef and pizzaiolo Jorge Sandoval sits below the historic Paramount theater and is pretty much made for game days with brick-oven pies, loaded fries, and a wide variety of wings topped with everything from mole to Flamin’ Hot Cheetos. Wash any and all of the above down with one of the many draft beers on offer, or pitchers of margaritas, while catching a game on one of the venue’s multiple TVs.
Pizzas, wings, and papas rule supreme here, with all the traditional flavors plus a few inventive options inspired by Chicano culture—mole pizza and Cheeto-dusted wings, anyone? Wash it all down with aguas frescas that come in refreshing flavors like guava-jamaica habanero and pineapple cucumber mint.
How to book: Walk-ins only.
This pizzeria and sports bar launched in November of last year, with a menu that pays homage to pizzaiolo Jorge Sandoval’s Latino roots, with wood-fired delights like a tangy mole option that sprinkles mozzarella and Oaxacan cheese, curtido, and crema atop a perfectly charred pie. They’ve also got more traditional pizzas like The O.G. with pepperoni, fresh oregano, and mozzarella, as well as the La Bianca, a white-sauce creation with fresh ricotta, Calabrian chilies, sauteéd spinach, caramelized onion, and hand-pulled mozzarella.
How to order: Walk in or order online for pickup and delivery.
