Pizza Rev opening in K-Town October 9 donates proceeds to LA Animal Shelter

Pizza Rev logo Pizza Rev is coming to K-town and its grand opening all proceeds go to helping the Los Angeles Animal Shelter, North Central Animal Shelter.  The LA Animal Shelter serves local homeless and abandoned pets.  The pizza deal is pretty sweet, you get a personal sized pizza and you pay what you want a the end for it (Suggested donation is $8).  I absolutely love a local business that branches out and gives back to the community with each new location.

Adding to the fun is Social Media Sunday on October 12.  All you have to do is “like” or “follow” them on facebook, instagram or twitter and show them your phone with the info and they will give you a free pizza!  Such a deal. (Sorry they aren’t on ello).

I’ve written about Pizza Rev a few times already.  Love the stuff…thin crispy Roman style pie you build yourself along an assembly line of friendly helpful Pizza Rev staff.  They even have gluten free and vegan options!  Do yourself a favor and pay them a visit if you are in the K-town area, you will be hard pressed to vind a better pizza for the money.  Anywhere.

Deets: Pizza Rev grand opening 109/14, 11AM-10PM, 3150 Wilshire Blvd, Los Angeles CA 90010

Build-Your-Own Pizza Shops Hosts October 9 Grand Opening to Benefit LA Animal Services

Los Angeles, CA (Sept 29, 2014) – PizzaRev continues to feed LA’s demand for better, faster pizza with its newest location in Koreatown, located at 3150 Wilshire Blvd. The growing build-your-own pizza shop will host a “Pizzas for a Purpose” fundraising event at the new location’s Grand Opening, October 9, where guests are invited to “pay-what-they-want” for a custom-built, personal-sized pizza. An $8 contribution is suggested and will benefit LA Animal Services North Central shelter.

“We’re pumped to join the vibrant K-town community and partner with LA Animal Services to support our local homeless and abandoned pets,” said Nicholas Eckerman, founder and COO of PizzaRev. “We’ve already received a tremendous response from area residents who are eager for our doors to open.”

PizzaRev – Koreatown will also host a “Social Media Fan Appreciation Night” on Sunday night from 5 – 10 p.m. on October 12.

PizzaRev features a distinctive “Craft Your Own” pizza assembly process and its “Roman-style” thin & crispy pizza that has won a loyal following in the LA area. It starts with the crust selection, either original or gluten-free, each one pressed into a thin canvas from a homemade dough ball. Guests then choose from four signature sauces, including a savory organic marinara, a creamy white alfredo, and a spicy-sweet BBQ. Finally, each personally-sized masterpiece is completed with favorite selections from an array of artisanal cheeses and 30+ fresh ingredients, ranging from traditional favorites like pepperoni and ground beef to premium selections including sweet fennel sausage, Kalamata olives, and fresh-picked basil and arugula.  Each pizza, no matter how many ingredients are selected, costs just $7.99.

Guests watch the dancing flames in the background as their pizzas are fired to a perfect, Roman-style crispiness in less than three minutes. With literally hundreds of millions of combinations to create, PizzaRev keeps guests coming back eager to try the latest creation they crave.
