Ella’s Meatball and Leek Pizza

As I’ve said before, a city can never have too many pizza restaurants. Bring it on — the more pizza, the better.  The Penn Quarter/Chinatown area has some good options, from Matchbox to District of Pi.  It’s not mind-blowing, pizza-of-the-gods stuff, but you’ll leave satisfied.

Which is how I felt about Ella’s.  The pizza there holds its own, with crispy thinnish crust, interesting toppings, bright sauce and the right amount of cheese.

Here’s one with artichokes.

And another with meatballs and leeks. Never thought to put leeks on a pizza, but it really works. Kind of a great pairing, actually.

Ella’s is perfect to hit up before a game at the Verizon Center, before a movie/show, or simply for a weeknight happy hour.  Other people seem to know that too, because it looks like the place can get somewhat crowded.  I guess everyone loves pizza.
