A Recession Obsession is, 1) a meal so great that it sticks in your mind long after digestion's end, and, 2) plays nice with your sensitive wallet. Is there a better place than Los Angeles to eat a wide variety of amazing food that so happens to be inexpensive? Probably not. We're as lucky as we are well fed. We last obsessed over South Bay Chicken Shackin' Up. Today we obsess...

LAist loves the pizza you can take home from Mozza2Go (see, see more.) Actually, we love their entire 2go menu. The take-out arm of Pizzeria Mozza and Osteria Mozza isn't a traditional pick, but it's this week's Recession Obsession.

Reservations are still not super easy to come by at corner of Melrose and Highland, but Mozz2Go will always let you in. It's where you can splurge without taking out a second mortgage on your kidney.

That means you can enjoy some of Los Angeles' most talked about food (and for good reason,) without making an occasion of it. As we know, occasions are expensive. Instead of wine, tipping a waiter/actor, and succumbing to desert, you can strip down the meal to the most important part: The Food. Pizzas are $10-$22 each, and sometimes you can't argue with that.
