Daily Slice: Danielle's Wood Fired Pizza, Valley Village, California
Daily Slice gives a quick snapshot each weekday of a different slice or pie that the folks at the Serious Eats empire have enjoyed lately.
The Quatre Fromages pizza at Danielle's Wood Fired Pizza in Valley Village is topped with grated mozzarella, ricotta, blue cheese, and goat cheese. It's a cheese lover's fantasy, and a well-balanced pie—no single cheese manages to steal the spotlight.
The smooth sauce is lightly seasoned, fresh flavored and applied sparingly. Danielle's thin crust is flavorful, crisp, and chewy. Carefully charred in a 650°F wood-fired oven, it's tender to the bite and holds up well to toppings. As good as the cheese is, the crust is the star of the show. Danielle's slices start at $2.25 and can be customized with a large variety of toppings. Not bad for a ticket to paradise.
