Steve Aoki Fulfills His Beard’s Destiny as a Pizza Delivery Guy With Pizzaoki Restaurant

If you asked 100 people draw a picture of a pizza delivery driver, roughly 60 of them would draw Steve Aoki, and the other 40 would draw Fat Steve Aoki. He may be a famous musician who has collaborated with Linkin Park, Fall Out Boy and Iggy Azalea as well as some good musicians, but everything about Aoki screams “pizza deliveryman,” right down to him being a DJ.

Rather than fight this image, Aoki has chosen to embrace it by opening Pizzaoki, a chain of pizzarias that will be competing with chains like Pizza Hut and Domino’s from coast to coast. According to People, Pizzaoki is starting with five delivery-only locations in the Los Angeles area, but he appears to be planing on taking the chain nationwide.

Starting at just $10.99, fans can indulge in pizzas like the “Just Hold On” (a simple cheese pizza with herb infused dough and homemade pizza sauce), the “DIMMAK” (topped with mozzarella cheeses, pepperoni, ground sausage and homemade meatballs), the “Mayhem” (slathered in cheese, pepperoni, sausage, meatballs, mushrooms, olives, onions and peppers) and more.

Okay, that DIMMAK actually sounds delicious. Aoki’s father was the founder of Benihana and Pizzaoki will use his mother’s pizza recipe, so running a restaurant may be in his blood. Steve probably won’t deliver your pizza himself, but it can’t actually be any worse than Domino’s.
