A popular local pop-up for Detroit-style deep-dish pizza, Angry Pete's Pizza has secured a permanent location inside San Diego's Kensington Brewing Company.
Angry Petes Pizza was founded in 2018 by Michigan-native Pete Harbison. The eatery began as a small pop up, doing events at farmers markets, festivals and beer pairings with some of San Diego's top breweries. Angry Pete's offers a menu of Detroit-style pizza, which is basically a hybrid version of Sicilian style pizza made in square metal pans originally designed for auto parts in the Detroit factories. The pizza is made using a higher hydration level dough, that is much lighter and fluffier than other deep dish pizzas. Another signature of Detroit-style pizza is crispy cheese around the crust.
Angry Pete's Pizza is partnering with Kensington Brewing Company and will launch an onsite eatery on the premises in the next few weeks. Angry Pete's will offer a limited menu of pizza and specialty items like Michegan-style "Coney" chili hotdogs. Pizzas will be available for onsite consumption and take-away with suggestions for pairing with Kensington Brewing's line of craft beers. Customers will also be able to purchase Angry Pete's signature habanero honey.
Angry Pete's Pizza will be located at 4067 Adams Avenue in San Diego's Kensington neighborhood. For more information, visit angrypetespizza.wixsite.com/home.
