The build your own pizza trend is sweeping LA and Firenza is bringing high quality, fully customizable pizzas to downtown. The first Southern California location for the national pizza chain opens today.
During their grand opening, the DTLA location is offering a free 10-inch pizzas with up to two toppings for a $2 donation to benefit the Colburn School and the LA Food Bank. The special runs from Tuesday, August 1 through Saturday, August 5. Follow this link to get a flyer for the free pizza.
Firenza is known for their fast fired pizzas that are cooked in a high-temperature oven that rotates the pizza, cooking it to perfection in around 90 seconds.
One of the most popular among their selection of specialty pizzas is the Buffalo Bleu. Its a pizza with blue cheese for the base, topped with mozzarella and provolone cheeses, Buffalo chicken, and a house made Buffalo sauce.
I asked all the staff which pizza was their favorite and the Buffalo Bleu was mentioned unanimously so I figured that was the one I should try. Indeed it’s like having your favorite Buffalo chicken wings transformed into a pizza.
Firenza’s menu also includes salads, wings, and desserts. Sodas, beer, and wine are available for washing everything down.
You can find Firenza in the food court at 1 Cal Plaza between Grand Ave and Olive Street, just around the corner from the Omni Los Angeles Hotel and the Museum of Contemporary Art.
