Pizza Places in the Conejo Valley and Greater Ventura County

Pizza2013.jpg

Pizza is the perfect food. It is easy to order over the phone. Easy to pick up. Easy to deliver. Pizza does not require utensils and thus saves time on cleaning and dishwashing. Though often greasy, it provides us with all 4 major food groups (keeping in mind tomatoes are a fruit). Kids love pizza. Pizza can be eaten for breakfast, lunch, snacktime and dinner and does not require heating (at least in my house). And of course, pizza makes a very good accompaniment to beer. What's not to love about pizza? Here is an alphabetical list of pizza places in the Conejo Valley and neighboring areas.

Darts Promoter Extraordinaire L. David Irete tipped us off that this new place called Urban Pizza looks to open in "Late 2014" according to this storefront at the North Ranch Center in Westlake Village. If it looks familiar, it is because this space at 3835 E. Thousand Oaks Boulevard, Suite A2 is the former home of the Qdoba that closed in June 2013, near the Trader Joe's.

The tagline, "Your Creation, Our Oven" would indicate that this is yet another addition to the make your own pizza trend we've been seeing around town, including Pieology in Thousand Oaks, MOD "Made on Demand" Pizza coming to Newbury Park in September 2014, Pizza Rev locations in Oxnard and soon at the Camarillo Premium Outlets, and Pitfire Pizza coming to the Westlake Plaza at some point soon.

Otherwise I know nothing yet about Urban Pizza other than that their website at www.urbanpizza.com indicates they locations in Simi Valley, Woodland Hills and Westlake Village are coming soon...so stay tuned.

MOD Pizza Grand Opening in Newbury Park Set for Thursday, October 2nd

MOD PIZZA OPENS IN NEWBURY PARK 

The Original Superfast Pizza Continues California Expansion and Supports Local Cause

MOD Pizza will celebrate the grand opening of its Newbury Park store at The Village at Newbury Park, 1015 Broadbeck Drive, on Thursday, October 2nd.

There will be a ribbon cutting ceremony at 4:45pm and doors will open at 5:00pm. The first 52 guests will each enjoy a free individual, artisan-style pizza or hand-tossed salad, and the chance to win free pizza for a year. Additional giveaways and tastings will continue throughout the day. Visit modpizza.com/locations/newbury-park for more information.

As part of MOD’s ongoing effort to “Spread MODness,” 100% of all opening day sales will be donated to the Sequoia Middle School Boys & Girls Club to support their mission to guide youth within the Newbury Park community towards academic success, good character and citizenship, and healthy lifestyles. 

MOD’s individual artisan-style pizzas are made on demand, using organic fresh-pressed dough and signature sauces. Guests can create their own pizzas and salads, using any combination of 30 featured toppings, or they can choose from a menu of MOD classics. Pizzas and salads are the same price regardless of the number of toppings. Pizzas are hand-cooked in an 800 degree oven in less than 3 minutes and salads are hand-tossed in front of the customer. MOD also serves local draft beers, wine, handspun milkshakes, and house-made lemonades and iced teas.

MOD currently operates 21 stores in Washington, Oregon, California, Arizona and Colorado, with more than 30 stores slated to open across eight markets by the end of 2014.

Seattle based MOD Pizza was founded in 2008 by Scott and Ally Svenson, and was inspired by the couple’s love of Italian street-style pizza, their desire for authentic, affordable and fast dining options for their busy family and the idea that a great company could be built around people. Above all, MOD is about putting people first – both guest and team members - and is striving to redefine the fast food experience.

MOD Pizza is Coming to The Village at Newbury Park This Summer

Final Update: Grand opening date is 5pm on Thursday, October 2nd.

Update 9/2/14: We are now looking at the October 2014 time frame for the grand opening. The MOD Pizza Newbury Park website is modpizza.com/locations/newbury-park.

Posted 5/15/14: MOD Pizza is coming to The Village at Newbury Park, 1015 Broadbeck Drive, Suite G, this summer, I'm told in the August time frame.

MOD Pizza serves up individualized artisan-style, thin crust pizzas. Customers can design their own pizzas or select from a menu of MOD favorites. Three sizes of pizzas, all priced the same regardless of toppings. The handcrafted pizzas are then fired in an 800 degree display oven and ready to eat in less than 3 minutes. MOD also offers a selection of salads along with craft draft and bottled beer, wine, pizza knots and milkshakes.

What does MOD stand for? "Made on Demand" come on you knew that :)

This location was previously occupied by Baja Fresh before it closed on January 10, 2012. Pizza is a nice addition to the mix at this location, which includes Ranch Hand BBQ, Daphne's California Greek, The Habit Burger, Subway, Presto Pasta, Jamba Juice, Flame Broiler, Chipotle, Islands, Starbucks and Tutti Frutti.

This will be the first MOD Pizza location in Ventura County. MOD Pizza opened in Valencia and Irvine in the latter part of 2013. A North Hollywood location is also in the works.

MOD Pizza joins other "make your own' pizzerias that recently opened in the area, including Pieology Pizzeria in Thousand Oaks and PizzaRev in Oxnard last summer.
