Oak Fire Pizza Take 2

September 26, 2009

We couldn’t pass up another one of these happy hours at Oak Fire Pizza where all pizza, beer and wine are 1/2 off from 4-7 pm. Read about our first happy hour experience here. You really can’t get a better deal in West L.A. with this much good food and drinks. Since we’re on a mission to try out every one of their amazing pizzas, we knew we had to knock out a couple more this time. Oh, and it also helped to know that you can order an extra pizza and pretend that you are just that hungry, and box it up and take it to go. Good to know for future visits 🙂 Check out The Happy Hour Tour website for great insight into L.A’s hottest happy hours. We could all use a little more of those during the week right? Also, if you are in the neighborhood, check out the Pasadena Wine Festival this weekend Oct 3rd and 4th for an amazing weekend long event of food & wine. I’m dying in food heaven with all these local events. Loving it

I ordered the Four SeasonsCelebrating the Four Seasons with Wild Mushrooms, Artichokes, Olives, Prosciutto, Mozzarella and a Hearty Tomato Sauce

Sounded like an interesting combination, sort of. They asked if I wanted them to separate the ingredients into quarters of the pizza, but I decided to make it as Brennan-proof as possible. Lol, the only thing he would probably eat from this pizza is the prosciutto. The pizza was okay, nothing too special. The toppings didn’t taste that fresh and the combination was a little odd from the saltiness of the olives and prosciutto, to the woody flavors of the mushroom and artichokes. Meh, not my favorite, but everyone else’s pizza made up for it.

Last week, B was a little disappointed in his selection of a salad pizza, so he was more cautious this time in picking the most vegetable-proof pizza on the menu. Hence, the Meatball and SausageSweet Pepper Sausage, Meatballs, Caramelized Onions, Roasted Peppers and Spicy Tomato Sauce. You can’t really go wrong with this classic combination of a meat and cheese pizza. B was relieved and thoroughly enjoyed his pie. Have I mentioned the crust is the best part of these pizzas?? The crust is light, airy and crisp, and the overall pizza is fairly thin, but they make up for the lack of bread with all their variety of toppings and sauces.

I convinced Jess to order The Perfect Pie-Caramelized Onion, Fennel Sausage, Olives and Mozzarella with a light Tomato Sauce

Fennel Sausage is probably one of the best toppings on the menu. It gives the pizza so much more flavor and really compliments the rest of the ingredients. Another great pizza and anything that has olives is a winner for me.

This was our “to-go” pizza for Scott-Wild MushroomWild Mushroom, Smoked Mozzarella, Fontina Cheese, Tomato Sauce and a touch of Truffle Oil

Of course, we couldn’t resist trying a couple slices. I am usually a huge mushroom fan, love all kinds of mushrooms, but this had a very interesting taste and I attribute that to the Truffle Oil. I know truffle oil is usually an expensive commodity, but it didn’t flavor the pizza in the right way for me. Definitely lacking in flavor from the tomato sauce and since mushrooms are already a pretty bland vegetable, the truffle oil didn’t help enhance the natural flavors of the mushrooms. Oh well, just another pizza to cross off the list! We will be back soon for another recap!
