Los Angeles has always been that golden city where dreams can come true and for pro skater turned entrepreneur Salman Agah and his wife, Price, a curator, a pizza place in the heart of downtown was a vision they had for quite a while. And frankly, it was also a desperately needed addition to their neighborhood for late night party cravings and Sunday hangovers. Los Angeles gets a major thumbs down for quality pizza, hence Pizzanista! was born.
Located next door to Tony’s Saloon, a down and dirty pool hall with a killer juke box, the couple wisely added a delivery window from their kitchen to the bar, satiating hungry boozers nightly. Needless to say, Pizzanista! has been a wild success not just because of it’s location, but also because of Price’s art world connections and Salman’s skate community, the place is always buzzing. The couple have tapped friends from Max Chow (of Mr. Chow) to artists and even foundations to collaborate with, making their pizza concept truly unique and downright awesome. We spoke to Price about the location, the collabs and what’s next.
