Candace & Charles Nelson, the couple behind Sprinkles Cupcakes, open Pizzana in Los Angeles’ Brentwood neighborhood with partners Chris & Caroline O’Donnell. Inspired by their shared passion for pizza and fascination with the science behind baking, the Nelsons’ first savory venture features handcrafted Neo-Neapolitan pies from Naples-born master pizzaiolo Daniele Uditi.
Candace brings her pastry expertise to Pizzana’s dessert menu, where she will debut a Neapolitan Ice Cream Terrine alongside Italian-inspired sweets such as Salted Caramel Panna Cotta. The wine and beer list – curated by local wine expert Amanda Crawford – offers a selection of wines from small Italian & California producers, most available by the glass and bottle.
