Thin crust or thick crust? Sicilian or Flatbread? For many of us, pizza is a passion. Chicago has their deep dish pizza’s and New York has their large thin-crust slices. Los Angeles may be known for their tacos and cocktails, but we do pizza pretty well too. Everyone needs a good pizza night in their apartment or a local pizza shop to indulge in. Looking for the best pizza in Culver city? Here are Upper Ivy Apartments’ favorite Pizza Shops near Culver City.
