It’s like the best-friend you can always turn to and you know it will always make you feel oh, so good inside. So, what if we told you that you could have spent an entire day eating pizza and taste-testing some of the most delicious pies from beloved pizzerias around Los Angeles?! We know, your mouth is probably watering already.

Incredible vendors at the event included Urban Oven, Urban Pie, Prova Pizza, Verace Pizza Napoletana, Ambrogio15, DeSano, Il Romanista, OliveWood Pizza, Prime Pizza and the Good Pizza.

Needless to say, attendees had their mouths full with some of the most decadent and outstanding pizza slices on this planet.
