The Pizza Press, the only build-your-own pizza franchise with the added novelty of a Roaring Twenties newspaper-theme, is promising a Las Vegas location is "coming soon."
Created in 2012, with four current locations in Southern California, the concept features decor inspired by vintage newspapers. Guests are greeted by "newsboys" who help customers "publish" their own "original edition" pizzas by choosing their own ingredients, or opt for one of their eight in-house, newspaper-inspired creations, such as "The Times," "The Tribune" and "The Chronicle."
The brand also offers ice cream sandwiches and bottled or tap craft beers from local and national breweries.
Decorated with typewriters and print blocks, the casual stores deliver their pies on news-print decorated liners. Menu options include "The Sun," made with "red sauce, mozzarella, honey smoked ham, Bourbon bacon, aged sharp Cheddar, pineapple, grape tomato and scallion" and "The Herald," a white sauce pizza with "mozzarella, grilled chicken breast, Ricotta, grape tomato, red onion and crimini mushroom."
Twelve new locations centered on Southern California are projected to debut this year, with Austin, Texas, their first out-of-state expansion. No timetable or location for the Las Vegas branch has yet been revealed.
