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.

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.
