One of Pasadena's top restaurants—and a countywide destination for fresh pasta—now has a sibling concept next door, and while Union focuses on pastas, small plates, and roasted meats and seafood, U Street Pizza is all, of course, about pizza. The pies aren't necessarily New York-style, but they fully embrace the thinner-but-bendable crust, with a two-day fermented dough and an edge that gets dusted with a snowfall of cheese. They're usually topped with California-focused ingredients, many of which come sourced from local farms. Our order? The Vodka Pepperoni, which ladles house vodka sauce in spirals and splatters over a cheesy, mozz- and provolone-topped pizza with perfectly curled pepperoni cups.
