Detroit-style pizza maker “Angry” Pete Harbison has been working with Kensington Brewing to build out a kitchen since last year. After COVID-19-related delays, in mid-June, he debuted the on-premise concept that had previously existed only as a pop-up servicing breweries around the county. Currently, Angry Pete’s Pizza at Kensington Brewing is operating Wednesday through Sunday for patio dine-in and to-go orders.
Harbison also recently started offering par-baked pizzas as a to-go option at multiple locations, including a few select grocery stores like the two Valley Farm Markets in La Jolla and Spring Valley.
“As a small startup catering company, we are lucky that we were able to adjust our business model quickly during these strange times,” Harbison said, adding that he’s interested in developing a partnership with a local brewery in the East County area for another full-time location. “We see the brewery model that works: one main production location with several tasting rooms; we’re planning on using this model for our pizza as well.”
