Fresh Brothers is a pizza chain that has served the South Bay, San Fernando Valley, and West LA for years. It's now launching an effort to win over OC stomachs with locations in Newport Beach and Laguna Niguel. And while pizzas are delicious, their meatball sliders are so simple, they're brilliant.
All they are are meatballs topped with mozzarella and sauce inside a King's Hawaiian roll. But this combination elevates the slider into something so decadent, I originally though one of the ingredients was truffle oil. It's really in the pizza sauce: made only of tomatoes (no concentrate), it's bright and thick and something you want to buy canned—mangia, mangia!
