Founded in 2012, The Pizza Press is a unique concept dedicated to elevating the ‘build your own pizza’ model to an experiential level, by creating an immersive 1920s Americana newspaper theme in which great food, craft beer, ambiance, and service are combined. The theme, inspired by the special dough press, harkens back to an era of simpler times of neighborhood newsboys. Guests are encouraged to created their own custom pizza or select one of the signature pizzas named after major newspapers such as “The Times,” “The Tribune,” “The Chronicle” and others. The pizzas are published in under four minutes. Pair your pizza with over 18 different craft beers, which change regularly and regionally. Seasonal offers, featuring local and fresh ingredients, keep things topical. Order in person or online, from our new loyalty app, or from our catering menu.

Based in Anaheim, California, The Pizza Press is a rapidly growing franchise system with two corporate locations, 14 franchise locations in Southern California, and plans to have 20 more new stores open and over 100 units sold by the first quarter of 2018.
