Full Disclosure: I paid for this meal with my own money and I was in no way reimbursed for this blog post. The opinions are completely my own.
While in California, the husband had a bit of a hectic schedule since he was working towards finishing things for a quickly approaching deadline. He worked during the day and then I would meet him for dinner and often times after dinner he would go back to work. Since he had a limited time for dinner, we generally chose a restaurant that was close to his office. One night we decided to eat at a nice looking restaurant on Abbot Kinney. That street is filled with unique little restaurants, some fancy, some not at all. Unfortunately, when we got to the restaurant that we had planned on, there was an hour long wait. Yeah, that wasn’t going to happen. So we walked down the road a bit and decided to go to Abbot’s Pizza Company.
Abbot’s Pizza Company is nothing fancy. In fact, there is barely even anywhere to eat inside, most people take their slices to go. That being said, the variety of slices that they had was huge – definitely not something that I would think of a tiny little local pizza parlor having – things like Wild Mushroom, Greek and Gypsy Pie.
I chose a slice of cheese and a mixed greens salad.
The salad was huge! It also included a lot of things that generic side salads normally don’t like mushrooms, peppers, REAL mixed greens (not just iceberg lettuce and a few pieces of spinach) and feta cheese crumbles.
The husband had the Chicken Curry Slice: Marinated Chicken, Honey, Curry, Onion, and Pineapple with Mozzarella Cheese on an Alfredo Sauce.
As we sat down at the counter to eat, I noticed their logo on the wall:
Well, if I would have KNOWN that they have a bagel crust, I might have been more excited to go here! The crust was definitely good, and did have a hint of bagel taste.
Overall, even though it just seemed like another little pizza shop, it was actually pretty good. If nothing else, they had a better variety of ready made slices than I’ve seen anywhere else!
Taste: A, solid pizza.
Cost: B+, the giant salad and my pizza was a little over $8, I’d say thats pretty good!
Would I go there again? I’m not sure. I did like that the crust was different, but even though they had a ton of crazy topping combinations, I didn’t actually see what else I would order.
