Pastrami Pizza

Recently we discovered the most amazing Pizza in Downey.
We ordered the PASTRAMI Pizza and WOW! The taste is amazing, it like eating a Pastrami Sandwich(Mustard,Pickles) on a Pizza.

Downey Pizza Co

  1. This is probably the only thing noteworthy at this place. And, agree, it is quite good - in a very quirky way.

    Everything else is Chef Boyardee-ish, if not worse. Pasta is cooked just right if you have no teeth ... and the lasagna is like something straight from the freezer, with a pitstop at the microwave, and then to your table.

    Friendly servers, if not a bit prone to flirting ...

      so just go here for the pastrami pizza? is that correct?

      any good desserts here?

      1. re: ipsedixit

        it sounds like it's close to Arthur's for some of that great Arthur's OJ.

        1. re: kevin

          Yeah, I think Arthur's is just up the street on Lakewood.

          Re dessert ... I think they usu. have a selection of generic stuff like tiramisu, chocolate cake, cheesecake, etc.

      2. Pepperoni's in the OC has the same, and it is GOOD!! Their chorizo pizza is heart burn on a crust, but definitely worth it!

        The location I know of is in Anaheim, off State College; but I believe they have three or four additional locations.

        2. "Correction on the address.. i believe its 9026 Florence Ave. Downey, CA"

          The probably relocated in the last 4 years since that original post was put up.

          1. I just tried the Famous Pastrami Pizza from Downey Pizza and all i got to say is that pizza is Phenomenal!! Don't get me wrong, all of their other pizza and items on their menu are good as well, But this pizza just does it for me!

              I wonder if these (fill in the city's name) Pizza Co, are related. I know of a East LA Pizza Co, La Verne Pizza Co, Monrovia Pizza Co and Hacienda Heights Pizza Co.

              I have eaten at Hacienda Heights Pizza Co and they also have the pastrami pizza on their menu, though I have never had it.
