A new, fast-growing pizza chain is coming to Arlington’s Pentagon City neighborhood.
Extreme Pizza — which offers unique pizzas with non-traditional ingredients like mandarin oranges, hummus, walnuts and broccoli — is coming to 1419 S. Fern Street, across from Costco and near the recently-opened Epic Smokehouse.
This will be the first Extreme Pizza location inside the Beltway and the fourth in Virginia. The existing Virginia locations are in Vienna, Henrico and Richmond. Those restaurants all feature indoor and outdoor seating, take-out and delivery service and online ordering.
The company says it distinguishes itself through a “dedication to quality” and a “commitment to innovation.”
“At Extreme Pizza, we’re always experimenting with new ways to test the palette, to push the pizza experience to a higher level,” says the company’s “Philosophy” web page. “This is the sort of pizza invented by people who sail from kites, who snowboarded before there were snowboards, and who learned to always color outside the lines.”
In addition to pizza, the Extreme Pizza in Pentagon City is also expected to offer calzones, salads, subs, wings, and gluten-free options, plus beer and wine. No word yet on when the eatery is hoping to open.
