Part of American Gonzo Food Corp.

Pitfire Pizza joined the Los Angeles pizza scene in 1997 from a corner in the North Hollywood Arts District and quickly became a pillar of the community. Founded by Paul Hibler with the motto “Food, Art and Community”, Pitfire is the perfect place to enjoy dinner with friends or celebrate a little league win. With a wide-ranging, seasonally updated menu of pizza parlor classics and farmer’s market favorites, choose from one of the menu’s 12 sourdough crust pizza offerings or create your own pie with vegan and gluten free options like house made vegan cheese and cauliflower crust. Their nine restaurants throughout Los Angeles, Orange and now San Diego Counties (Carlsbad, Costa Mesa, Manhattan Beach, Mar Vista, North Hollywood, Orange, Pasadena, Woodland Hills, Echo Park and West LA) each tout unique design features chosen with their surrounding neighborhoods in mind - a beer garden (North Hollywood), a speakeasy (Pie Society, Costa Mesa) and an outdoor patio by the beach (Mar Vista, Manhattan Beach) to name a few.

We aim to be an employer of choice and offer our team benefits, a 401k after one year, a dining discount program, and guided and achievable paths for career growth and professional development.
