own type of pizza place so it's pretty fun (who said you can't play with your food)? I ordered the margherita pizza with sausage and peppers and the cheese kind of just slid off. The pizza was greasy and the toppings had a hard time staying put. However, the pizza is pretty cheap (it only costs about $8). Even though it's usually crowded, there seems to be enough tables for everyone. I like how their soda machine has like 20 different sodas to choose from. Overall, solid bang for your buck. However, for a pizza place, it's pretty average.

Finally made it here, and it's worth checking out. Now, I want to go back! Good, thin-crust pizza with very fresh ingredients. Lots of imagination already done for you, but you might also create your pie. Salads sound good, too, but definitely plan on some pizza!

One awesome thing about 800 Degrees is their POTD (pizza of the day) which you can find out by following their IG! Only 7 dollars! Their pizza is delicious- my favorite is the Zucca pizza - try it with an egg cracked on top!

Building your own pizza is great but I highly recommend checking out their Instagram on weekdays. They post a pizza of the day which is 50% off. You get a good quality pizza for around $5. There is often a line at this location but unless you have someone ordering 10 pizzas at a time it usually moves fast.

That's right...great for families and the mature foodie palate. Delicious, reasonable and lots of variety. It's not NY pizza...but its the next best thing.

Thank you 800 Degrees. Thank you for your line up of dark handsome blue eyed men you employ for my visual enjoyment. Also thank you for having fresh herbs and truffle cheese. Serious truffle cheese. And being big enough portion size that I can take the other half home to have for dinner as well.
Ok, enough of that. The deets:
Classic pies start at $6/7, the fancy stuff ~$10. Order at the counter.
Your pizza dough gets tossed and flattened and gets shifted down the line.
Add cheese or veg for $1 each.
Add a meat is $1 or $3 for the fancier stuff.
You make a poor decision for add ons? They will advise you of it. No upselling, just straight talk. Awesome.

Overall, excellent quality pizza. Dough is floppy but not soggy, crust is chewy. Just enough cheese, sauce and meat/topping per bite.

There is plenty of seating inside, as you take in the high ceilings, tiled walls, very similar to the inside of Union Station. Very vintage, very cool. We came after lunch rush so it wasn't so bad, but I could see the line up being frustratingly long. As soon as you are in the doors you are pretty much at the first station so if there is a queue going, you are outside in the sweltering heat. Parking? Well it is Westwood so to be fair, you should already know it sucks.

I went here for the first time this past Saturday, and I really liked it! The line was pretty long when me and my roommate got there. We ended up waiting for about 40 minutes, but I definitely think it was worth it because the pizzas baked really quickly!

You have 3 choices of bases for your pizza:
1) Pizza...something. I forget what they called it, but it's basically just tomato sauce ($5.15)
2) Pizza bianca: Just mozzarella and no tomato sauce ($5.45)
3) Pizza margherita: Tomato AND mozzarella ($6 something)

Then, you get a ton of different choices from three categories:
1) Meats (sausage, ham, chicken, etc.)
2) Cheeses (goat, truffle cheese, provolone, etc.)
3) Vegetables (spinach, tomatoes, caramelized onions, etc.)

I believe each extra topping is $1, but some of the fancier ones like the truffle cheese is $3. They also have some sets of toppings recommended for people who don't know what to get.

It's pretty self-explanatory on how you order: basically like Chipotle, except with pizzas.

NOTE: If you order any other side dishes like truffle cheese bread or anything, order that at the beginning of the line when you order the basics for your pizza. I accidentally waited until they put all of my toppings on to let them know that I wanted the truffle cheese bread, and they told me I should have said that at the beginning. It's not like they had a sign that said to, though... -_-

The soda machine is one of those futuristic ones like at Wingstop where there's a ton of buttons and you can choose various flavors of each soda (ie. you select Coke, and then you can have orange Coke, raspberry Coke, vanilla Coke, etc.).

They also have gelato for dessert, but they only have a few flavors and I didn't think it would be good because they specialize in pizzas. I could be wrong, though.

Overall, 4 stars! I'm a fan.

I don't really like to eat pizza. Only because I'm pretty sure I can eat a whole box in one sitting. Eating one of 800 degrees' pizzas always makes me crave more, but that's a big problem considering its a tad on the expensive side. The dough is light and the ingredients are high-quality. The create-your-own-salad can rack up da dough if you're not careful.. each add-on is a dollar. Prosciutto is $3. D:

I'm glad I came here just once to try it to see what the big hype was all about. But, I probably not gonna go out of my way to eat here. Even though the line is long, waiting for the food felt longer. Salads take a really long time to make for some reason too.

It's hard to go wrong with pizza, and the quick-fired versions at 800 Degrees are especially delicious. With a menu full of creative toppings, you are sure to find something to please every member of your party.

This is one of those places that make you wonder, "Why didn't I think of that??" Customized pizza at its finest! They use quality ingredients and their service is fast. Plus, it's affordable. Yep, they totally hit it out of the park.

My go-to pizza place in Westwood. It's set up like Subway except you make your own pizza, not sandwich. I love how all the pizzas here are thin-crusted. I usually get the Margherita pizza and then add random toppings every time. They have a wide variety of toppings and they're a dollar each. Although the pizza isn't that big, I can never finish it by myself. I usually like to share with another person. If not, I'll take the rest to go and it still tastes really good as leftovers. This place is open till 2AM, so if you have a late night pizza craving, this is the spot to go to! They also have ice cream!

One of my favorite restaurants in Westwood-- artisan custom pizza, good price, relatively large portions (safe to make 2 meals out of this one), and good vibes. Also open till 2 AM. I always recommend taking out of towners here.

800 Degrees is a great place to get authentic Italian style pizza. When it came out, I was immediately reminded of the scene in Eat, Pray, Love when Julia Roberts was sitting with a pizza in front of her in Italy saying how she will enjoy her pizza and then go buy bigger pants. That woman definitely knows what she's talking about.

The pizza has a thin hand tossed crust. You can actually get to watch them toss out the dough as you are waiting to order. They do it on the spot before passing it to the sauce guy so you always get fresh dough. We made the mistake of overloading our pizza with too many toppings so the crust couldn't hold up our pizza and with both mushrooms and artichokes, our pizza was getting soggy. I would recommend choosing just 2-3 toppings at the most.

They have a variety of cheese. I, of course, opted for the truffle cheese. It didn't really had a strong truffle smell so after being cooked, I could barely tell that it had any truffle smell at all. I would skip the $3 you have to pay additional to upgrade to truffle cheese. Instead, the truffle cheese bread will definitely satisfy your truffle fix. It's super cheesy and smelled strongly of the amazing truffle scent. It was so delicious. I enjoyed it more than the pizza.

The toppings are all delicious. I highly recommend getting prosciutto. They won't bake the pizza with it but put it on after before serving. They have a huge slicer with a big chunk of fresh proscuitto in the store. They slice it fresh and immediately put it on the pizza.

New-ish pizza spot in Westwood. Basically, there thing is that you choose the ingredients for each pizza which is cooked in an 800 degree oven. This means it cooks quickly and tastes better. Since I spent a number of years in New York I'm pretty picky about pizza, but this is one of the best places in LA.

3.5 stars rounding down.
I love the concept of build your own pizza! Yes it's a steal for a Margherita pizza for $6. But if you like a few toppings on your pies like I do, it gets quite expensive! Min. $1.00 more for each add on toppings.
I ordered the Pizza Margarita for $6.45 which is with crushed tomato, fresh mozzarella cheese, Regina, olive oil and basil. Free extras were garlic and Oregano seasoning. My add on were pepperoni and mushroom on one, sausage, red onions, and mushrooms on the second one. The total of my pizzas were about $10 each.

Flavor: pretty tasty but...
Here's what's really sucks! The pizza dough is SO thin that everything breaks apart. It gets extremely soggy and makes the pizza not a pizza. :-( so disappointed in that!

(I preferred Rose City Pizza in Rosemead. All the toppings you want, anyway you can make it, and the pizza doesn't fall apart! and only $7.99.)

I love their late hours. Street parking, sucks because since it's Westwood, so hard to find parking.

Scrumptious wood fired pizzas. You choose everything that goes on the dough and watch them make your pie. There is gelato offered but I'm always too full from not being able to stop eating the pizza until there isn't any left. The Sopressata is a must!

Amazing gourmet pizza. Probably the best pizza near UCLA. Fast service, even with the huge numbers of customers. Delicious toppings.

Grace C. and I were in the area and decided to stop in when they opened for lunch. Just after 11am, there's a line of 5-6 people. We quickly looked at the menu and realized that it's sort of like Pieology but with fancier toppings. It's sort of like Subway or Chipotle except for pizza. I have to say, the residents of Westwood are sure lucky. I wish they had places like this when I was an undergrad at UCLA.

There are 3 basic pizzas for you to choose from: margherita (cheese, tomato sauce, basil), bianca (no tomato), marinara (no cheese). From there, you can choose whatever toppings you desire. The proteins and vegetables will run about $1 per topping except as noted. They have truffle cheese for $3. I opted for a margherita with roasted garlic, meatballs and Calabrian chiles. They only charged me for two toppings so I imagine that the chiles count as a sauce and not a topping. My pizza was cooked in a flash and was delicious! I loved the roasted garlic and the fresh mozzarella. The chiles gave it a nice heat that accompanied the acidic tomato sauce. The meatballs were yummy and not my usual since I tend to lean towards pepperoni but decided on something different. I was really pleased with the whole experience.

My only complaint was that of the bottled drinks I asked for, they were out of, despite being on the menu. All the drinks were $3 and up so that's where they gouge you. I ordered a fountain drink to accompany my meal. They have one of those fun Coke machines that dispense a million different flavors that you find at the movie theaters these days. They also serve beer and wine. The pizzas start at $5.15, which is quite reasonable if you're a college student on a budget. The pizzas are large enough to share, but since everyone has different opinions on pizza, would you want to?
