Pizza in Silver Lake & Echo Park

A kooky mishmash of mismatching furniture, retro objects and hipster staff, Masa sets a nostalgic, neighborly scene for Chicago deep-dish pizza. Locally sourced toppings are piled high in a cradle of hand-rolled, house-baked dough then hidden beneath a layer of cheese. The vegetarian Californian (spinach and sun-dried tomato) is a standout. One 10-inch pizza is usually enough for two adults.

Skip the house wine.
