After a successful launch last year, Steve Aoki‘s pizza venture “Pizzaoki” has been expanding to more locations.

Aoki, the fourth-highest-paid DJ in the world, has already announced interest in expanding across the country after his first location began serving customers in Los Angeles back in July, reports Forbes.

The restaurant, which started delivering in Oakland last month, also recently opened in San Diego as well. In an Instagram post, Aoki revealed plans of opening in Long Beach, Las Vegas, and Chicago next month.

Unlike conventional pizzerias, Pizzaoki uses a delivery-only model, utilizing Los Angeles’s Cloud Kitchens, a platform which provides cooking space for multiple LA restaurants. Customers can get their pies via third-party apps such as Postmates and UberEats.

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.”

Family Style Co. founder Lawrence Vavra, who co-founded Pizzaoki with Aoki, told Berkeleyside that they are also planning to open in Berkeley soon.
