Luggage Room should be your go-to for pizza in Pasadena. Their sourdough crust is chewy and flavorful, and they’ve got interesting and inventive toppings like chorizo and sun-dried tomatoes, and avocado and lemon. Our favorite, though, is the Shattuck Ave pie, topped with burrata, roasted garlic, and piquillo peppers. Luggage Room’s in a (fully functioning) train platform, and used to be the actual luggage room for people taking the train to and from Hollywood. It’s nice inside, and usually full of locals drinking wine and eating pizza - but our move is to order it to Stone Brewing, which is in the same plaza. They’ll deliver your pizzas there, so you can eat it while you make your way through one of LA’s best tap lists.
