Pizzaoki currently serves eight types of pizzas that are served on Aoki’s “lit herb infused dough with Mama Aoki’s homemade pizza sauce.” Each pizza is creatively named with references to Aoki and his music career, such as the pepperoni version called “Steveroni” and the supreme version called “mayhem.”
