Bolstered by a consistent stream of media praise, including a spotlight in the Daily Bruin in 2011, Extreme Pizza's thrill-seeking founders channel their penchant for outdoor adventure into a menu of healthy, creative pizzas. They habitually tweak the menu to incorporate new pies, many of which are available gluten-free, much like dictionaries with the "G" pages ripped out. Their chefs slice veggies and twirl dough each day before molding pizzas such as the Paia Pie, a smorgasbord of hawaiian pineapple, canadian bacon, and mandarin oranges atop a bed of mozzarella and cheddar. The website conveniently displays approximate calorie counts to accommodate diets and phobias of eating foods containing prime numbers.

Patrons can carryout take and bake pizzas or settle into the Redondo location and chow down beside a view of the ocean expanse. Kids blow through excess energy in the game area while adults scrutinize incoming broadcasts on TVs in the dining room.

Logic has it that if a restaurant names itself after a specific dish, it’s wise to order that dish—and the math certainly works out at Fritto Misto. Gayot suggests beginning with the namesake dish, a blend of shrimp, calamari, artichoke hearts, and vegetables that’s lightly battered, fried, and served with cocktail sauce and roasted garlic mayonnaise. From there, you can customize your plate by choosing from 15 types of pastas to douse in 20 kinds of sauces—such as spinach linguini in a basil cream sauce. Chefs take control once again with vegetarian specialties, including artichoke-stuffed gnocchi, and cap off meals with homemade flourless chocolate cake.

Pedone's Pizza's cooks fulfill their titular promise for pies, but they use their ovens for far more than baking crust. They also whip up a slew of Italian specialties, from bubbling lasagna to toasty chicken-parmesan sandwiches. In addition to classic dishes, they flex their culinary creativity when creating their pizzas, sometimes replacing the standard tomato-based sauce with alfredo, thai sauce, or Kristina's secret pink sauce. Customers have the option of a preselected suite of toppings to accompany each sauce, or they can make their own recipes from a selection of fresh ingredients with which the kitchen staff will top any pie or vacation scrapbook.
