The Urban Oven was originally founded in Seattle by Chef Scott Tremonti, a renowned Pizzaiolo with uncompromising pursuit of perfection. In 2012, Chef Scott moved the operation back to Los Angeles and quickly began assembling a crew of aspiring Pizzaiolos who shared his passion for authentic artisanal pizzas. By combining freshly sourced ingredients with old world crust, we create culinary masterpieces fresh from the wood oven reminiscent of pizza in its purest form, when it was created as a gift to royalty.
Now, after years of experience and training by some of today’s top pizzaiolos, Chef Scott has built an ardent following and he and his staff gladly share their authentic Napoli-style wood-fired artisanal pizzas on the streets of Los Angeles made fresh on the custom-built mobile wood-fired food truck. Each pizza is made to order and creating the perfect pie is the goal we strive for each time we hit the streets.

I’ve been in love with Stella Rosa in Santa Monica for awhile now. Amazing pizzas, great drinks, decent wines and probably the best burrata appetizer I’ve EVER HAD IN MY LIFE. Yes, you heard me. THE BEST. I just want to take it and smear it all over me so I can love on it 24/7. Oh wait, I digress.
Stella Rosa has a paternal twin in Hollywood. Not an identical twin but they look an awful lot alike. Stella Barra is Chef Jeff Mahin’s Hollywood version of Stella Rosa. The pizzas are there but they’ve added a few more things in - like lunch and breakfast. Sounds like a must-go to me!

We used to live right up the hill from Cheebo in Hollywood a number of years ago. It was my absolute go-to for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I love it so much that if I’m not cycling on a weekend morning, I will drive the kids all the way across town for their fried bread, cheeburrito, chopped salad and pizza.
The LA Times reviewed Cheebo back in 2003 and I decided I had to check it out. The pizza sold by the foot is the big draw and you should definitely have it but it’s everything else that makes Cheebo worth coming back over and over.
For breakfast, the kids (and I) love the Chee-Begniers N Honey - and yes, that’s how they spell it on their menu so don’t give me any grief over it. For the rest of us, it’s otherwise known as fried bread and honey. These little pillows of fried dough come out steaming hot and make every bad thing that happened to you melt away. After you satiate your sweet tooth, move on to the Cheeborito. I go for the Original but add in Avocado. One Cheeborito is more than a normal person can handle without feeling like you’ll lose a full day to the “sleepies” after you’ve consumed this massive beast. I also love the Huevos Rancheros, classic SoCal breakfast.
If you’re headed to Cheebo for lunch, order the pizza and a Cheebo Chop. This is by far my favorite chop salad. They have a vegetarian version but I don’t understand the point of that. Get it with all the cheese and meat they will put in. It’s delish.
To make Cheebo even more interesting than the food is that once in awhile a relaxed, chilled out celebrity will be eating right next to you. It’s Hollywood so everyone’s cool like that.
