OAKLAND, CALIFORNIA — Deejay Steve Aoki, a regular on the Hakkasan and Omnia nightclubs circuit, now has a delivery-only pizza restaurant. Strangely, Nosh reports that the Pizzaoki location is home to six delivery-only pizza restaurants. The son of Benihana founder Hiroaki Aoki named his pizzas for moments from him music career. Every pizza starts with an herb-filled dough, topped with a sauce created by Aoki’s mother, Mama Aoki aka Chizuru Kobayashi. The Mayhem pizza starts with that herb dough and features 10 different toppings, like a supreme pizza, while Dim Mak, named for his record label, features pepperoni. Aoki launched his pizza business last July in Los Angeles, and according to his business partner Lawrence Vavra, plans to open up to 20 locations in Boston, Chicago, Miami, and New York City.
