Apollonia’s Pizzeria serving up exquisite artisan pizzas in Los Angeles, CA
Justin De Leon, acclaimed photographer, wanted to try something different. In addition to his photographic skills, he has 25 years of pizza making experience. Why not combine visual imagery and pizza? On July 28, 2012, the ingredients of experience paid off with the opening of Apollonia’s Pizzeria. The interior is a visual experience along with a show of pizza dough tossing for the perfect pizza crust. This is pizza where you take your time to savor the scents of the yeasty dough and let your taste buds experience flavors of truly artisan pizza. Justin’s wife, Linda, is the perfect hostess and is always talking to the guests and making sure they are enjoying every minute of their pizzeria experience. They use locally grown ingredients from community farmer’s markets, neighborhood bakeries, and resident meat distributors.
Burning Sycamores are hot wings topped with roasted garlic, jalapeno, and pineapple. The wings were tender and just hot enough so you can taste the flavor of the chicken. The mix of jalapenos, pineapple, and roasted garlic was similar to a tropical salsa – sweet heat. It complemented the chicken perfectly. These have to be the best hot wings I have ever had! Thumbs up, way up!
