I know your request is over 1 1/2 years old, but I live in Los Angeles, and LOVE this pizza joint. I just joined the group (Hi everyone!) and your post sent me a-Googling once again (been looking for this for years) - this time I may have found something! http://pizzatherapy.com/newssepta.htm
I had written a huge post about this (history, descriptions), but it all got wiped out when I had to register as a new user on pizzamaking.com before posting! So let me know if you need more info - it's late, and I'm not in the mood to retype it all! lol...
So, to recap: it's a thick 1" crust, sweeter
than the norm, with nooks and crannys on top. The bottom is crunchy, but the top nook & crannys can be almost undercooked - but not quite. This paragraph is it's essence!
The tomato topping is all chunks - little sauce, and not cooked long. Cheese takes a back seat, but is stringy & wonderfull. The lumpy top of the dough is great for lodging any mushrooms, sausage, pepperoni, or ham you might want.
I also put it in Mastercook format... Have not tried it yet...
