STEVE Aoki loves Cakes. Not sure if he likes eating them too, but he definitely likes throwing them at his fans! And, of course, these are not just Cakes! He recruited a whole team in order to bring the cakes to an ideal consistency, all the better to smash with!

There is also one thing that steve obviously loves too: PIZZA!!

American EDM Superstar Dj launched his – delivery only Pizza service –  named Pizzaoki in Los Angeles earlier this Summer.

Menu consists of eigth pizzas! Their names reference Aoki and his music career, while ingredients seem to always reference weed.

Each one starts with a “lit herb-infused dough” covered with Aoki’s mother sauce, a homemade recipe! Mama Aoki, Chizuru Kobayashi is not the only one cooking in the family. Steve Aoki’s father Hiroaki Aoki founded Benihana, a japanese cuisine restaurant chain, back in 1963.

So, Pizzaoki Menu consists of the following:

  • Just Hold On (Cheese) (covered with a blend of mozzarella cheeses).
  • Steveroni (Pepperoni) (covered with a blend of mozzarella cheeses, and sliced pepperoni).
  • DIM MAK (Meat Lovers) (covered with a blend of mozzarella cheeses, sliced pepperoni, ground sausage, and homemade meatballs).
  • No Beef (Veggie) (covered with a blend of mozzarella cheeses, mushrooms, black olives, red onions, sweet onions, red bell peppers, and green bell peppers).
  • Mayhem (Supreme) (covered with a blend of mozzarella cheeses, sliced pepperoni, ground sausage, homemade meatballs, mushrooms, black olives, red onions, sweet onions, red bell peppers, and green bell peppers).
  • Turbulence (covered with a blend of mozzarella cheeses, sliced pepperoni, pineapple, and drizzled in homemade garlic ranch sauce).
  • Neon Future (White) (covered with a blend of mozzarella cheeses, ricotta cheese, fresh garlic, and fresh italian parsley).
  • Boneless (BBQ Chicken) (covered with a blend of mozzarella cheeses, BBQ sauce, BBQ chicken, red onion, and Italian parsley).

You may think that as a DJ Steve doesn’t have the required skills to run restaurants, but as he tells Forbes, he already counts himself as an investor in five other restaurants!

AOKI IS ALREADY THINKING ABOUT EXPANDING ACROSS THE ATLANTIC OCEAN

Aoki and his business partner, Lawrence Vavra, want to open as many as seven more locations around LA and Southern California before the end of this year. Next year, they’ll add a San Diego then head north to set up shop in San Francisco, Oakland, and Berkeley; and look beyond the Golden State to markets in Boston, Chicago, Miami, and New York City, totaling 15 to 20 locations around US!

However, his getting into other than music business was not always welcome! “We faced the skepticism issue from the start, and it was one of the first conversations that we had,” he tells Forbes. “I already faced skepticism as an artist coming out of the gate. Of course, I still have the haters out there that want to bring me down on just the music side. I remember when I got my first Grammy nomination with my first album, and some of the music community were skeptical of a DJ coming into that space. The only way to battle it is by turning out quality content, quality service.”

Remember, Pizzaoki is a delivery service only, with pies arriving at customers via third-party apps such as Postmates and UberEats.
