DTown Pizzeria is Back in the City of West Hollywood! The new location opened on Friday, December 29, after closing in the city’s east side earlier this year. The newly relocated pizzeria moved to WeHo’s Mid-City at 8424-D Santa Monica Boulevard–the former home of Big Mamas & Papas Pizzeria which closed this past September.
Dtown Pizzeria was located inside Phorage WeHo, 7326 Santa Monica Blvd for roughly three years. Their last day open in WeHo was April 6. Owner Ryan Ososky said Dtown had outgrown the space inside a Vietnamese soup kitchen and was on the lookout for something bigger. Then Big Mamas & Papas opened in WeHo.
Dtown’s owner and chef, Ryan Ososky, told WEHO TIMES, that the hoped to open as soon as later this month before the year ended. “But don’t quote me on it,” he said, We never know what’s going to happen, but we’re ready to open soon.”
It looks like his power of intention allowed him to open with a matter of weeks after first announcing that they were opening at this new space.”
“We’re happy to be back in town and we’re looking forward to bringing some great world champion Detroit style pizza back to West Hollywood,” he said earlier this month. “We started on Sunset Boulevard back in 2020. We live close by so we like being a part of the community and we’re really excited to bring our pizzas back to the city.”
Ososky says the new space is three times the size of their previous space. He hopes to be open real soon, but could not give a date or time frame at this moment.
Dtown Pizzeria began posting about pop-ups in West Hollywood as early as 2017. One of those pop-ups was inside Phorage WeHo, which became its permanent home in 2020 during the COVID pandemic before it closed in April.
Dtown is known for its Detroit-style deep-crust square pies with a lot of heart, thanks to chef Ryan Ososky’s Michigan roots. The chef uses premium ingredients for super-unique pies, including the Cornhole (summer corn, bacon jam, & pickled jalapenos) and the coyly spot-on Life Is Truff 2020 (black truffle, goat cheese, mushrooms, pickled onions, & thyme).
