With a concept unlike any other, Chef Ali delivers fresh, crisp, handmade pizzas with international flavors

Los Angeles, CA (PRUnderground) January 29th, 2023

Yelp just announced their 2023 Top 100 Pizzerias in USA & Canada, and the Pasadena location of 786 Degrees was named the #1 pizzeria across the U.S. and Canada. This is no small feat considering there were 39,808 independent pizza shops and 35,309 restaurants in the country as of 2021.

Last year, the Los Angeles location of 786 Degrees was ranked #10 in the country on the list, but this year, the eatery has taken the top spot.

Chef Ali is a self-taught, Guinness record holding, 8-time national and international award-winning pizzaiolo who is passionate about fusing international flavors and culture into a medium that virtually everyone can enjoy: pizza. Ali’s ability to infuse culturally unique ingredients into mouthwatering pizza also earned him a huge win on Hulu’s new show ‘Best in Dough’.

Yelp noted some of the pizzeria’s fan-favorite menu selections, such as the “Bombay Tikka Masala” featuring classic Indian spices and the “El Chapo”, which is brimming with Mexican flavor and toppings such as chorizo and cilantro.

786 Degrees has locations in Los Angeles and Pasadena, both of which serve the same menu. The best way to order for the fastest turnaround is on their website, where customers choose their desired location and menu options. Then, they can pick up their fresh pizza right from the oven at the restaurant at the time they choose.

“Every guest is special for us, especially first-timers. It’s not just pizzas we serve, it’s an experience which you don’t want to miss. You will literally feel like you’re traveling the world through our pizzas,” said said Chef Ali. “Which country would you like to visit today?”

The eatery’s slogan is “Defy The Norm”, which is what 786 Degrees does for each and every customer. “Once people understand our concept of international flavors and taste our pizzas, they’re addicted. That’s why we say our pizzas are for pizza addicts only,” added Ali.

The 786 Degrees website includes full details on their seasonal pizza menu with videos, giving pizza enthusiasts a chance to explore the offerings before ordering online.
