Pizza Press (The) – Newport Beach – February 2020 – 2 Year – Anniversary


The Pizza Press, one of Southern California’s most popular build-your-own pizza restaurants, has opened on the Balboa Peninsula in Newport Beach. The Pizza Press is known for its fresh, high quality ingredients, assortment of local craft beer on tap, and a fun 1920s Americana newspaper theme.

In keeping with the newspaper theme, customers at The Pizza Press are invited to create or “publish” their own pizza by choosing from an extensive selection of fresh, high quality toppings, cheese and sauces. In addition to customizing a pizza which is “hot off the press” in under four minutes, guests can choose signature pizzas named after major American newspapers including The Times (extra virgin olive oil, mozzarella, chicken, grape tomato, red onion, smoked gouda, and finished with fresh cilantro and Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ Sauce), The Tribune (red sauce, mozzarella, pepperoni, red onion, mushroom, roasted red bell peppers, sweet Italian link sausage, Kalamata olives and ricotta), The Chronicle (extra virgin olive oil, mozzarella, imported artichoke hearts, grape tomato, red onion, crimini mushroom, chevre, roasted red bell peppers, and finished with fresh basil and basil pesto) and others.

Custom pizzas may grab the headlines at The Pizza Press, but the carefully curated assortment of local craft beer on tap is also newsworthy. The restaurants also have two varietals of wine, as well as Stumptown Cold Brew Coffee and Virgil’s sodas.

Diners can also enjoy traditional wings served with buffalo, BBQ, or mango habanero sauce, a selection of custom or grab-and-go salads, and tempting desserts such as fresh-baked cookies, custom ice cream sandwiches and root beer floats with Virgil’s Root Beer and vanilla bean ice cream. For an adult version, guests over 21 can add ice cream to any of the darker beers, like a stout.

“The Pizza Press is elevating the build-your-own-pizza concept by creating an immersive environment filled with friendly service, a fun ambiance and a delicious, quality pizza that is ready in just minutes,” said Dara Maleki, founder and CEO of The Pizza Press. “Our theme harkens back to the industrialized era when newspapers were the foundation of the local community. We also strive to support each local community where we open, by becoming involved and giving back to schools, charities and civic organizations.”

The Pizza Press is open 11am to 11pm daily, and is located at 2300 Newport Blvd., Suite 104, in The Vue, a new waterfront residential, shopping and dining village on the Balboa Peninsula in Newport Beach. Street parking is available, as well as two-hour validation when parking at The Vue.
