Pizza for breakfast? Yes, at Stella Barra. Chef Jeff Mahin has launched four new breakfast pizzas at both Stella Barra locations. The pizzas include a chilaquiles pizza with Parmesan cream sauce, crispy tortilla strips, grana padano, Fresno chile, green onion and hot sauce on the side; the "kick start" with house-made Italian sausage, Calabrian chiles, roasted garlic, fresh mozzarella and green onions; bacon and egg with Parmesan cream sauce, smoked bacon, gruyère, parsley, chile flakes, fresh rosemary, pecorino and arugula; and the "Venice Beach" with egg whites, shaved mushrooms, caramelized onions, gruyère, parsley, smoked bacon and truffle. The pizzas are available on Saturdays and Sundays in addition to other brunch specials. And if you're going gluten-free, Mahin just started offering a gluten-free dough at both locations. 6372 Sunset Blvd., Los Angeles, (323) 301-4001, https://www.stellabarra.com/.
