Sgt. Pepperoni’s Pizza Store, a popular Newport Beach restaurant owned by former Sugar Ray drummer, announced that it will open an Irvine store on Campus Plaza near UC Irvine.
Founded in 1976, the restaurant is known for its New York-style pizza with a Californian twist.
Musician Stan Frazier and three friends from Newport Beach are at the original Sgt. Pepperoni’s in Newport Beach and bought it in 2013, a year after Frazier won the cooking reality show “Chef Race: UK vs. US”.
OC Register readers voted it the best family-friendly restaurant in 2020. The Irvine Store is slated to open this month.
