Pizza pairs well with Sunday football games, kids' parties, and celebrations based around receiving the new phone book. Chew on celebration-worthy circles with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of pizza, pasta, and drinks at Yammy Pizza in West Hollywood. An eclectic gathering ground for families, artists, and movie stars, Yammy Pizza sits on one of the neighborhood's busiest street corners. Its menu features Verona Italy–style pies made with oat-and-granola-crafted crusts, Italian Grande mozzarella cheese, and other fresh ingredients. In addition to circular stomach-fillers, Yammy ends hunger with a range of pasta dishes ($4.99–$10.99) and fresh salads, such as its signature caesar ($3.99–$5.99).
Tantalizing aromas from an old-fashioned stone-hearth deck oven drift through Yammy Pizza’s doors, which opened in 2009 to begin producing a menu of gourmet pizzas in a quick-service setting. Like most efforts to reimagine Romeo and Juliet as a dubstep musical, Yammy’s finds inspiration in Verona, whose age-old Italian recipes guide the production of 14 specialty pies. House-made marinara and cream sauce rain across robust pastas peppered with spicy shrimp and italian sausage, rounding out a menu bolstered by a quartet of calzones and grilled paninis served on rosemary focaccia bread.
