Paul Hibler opens the largest Pitfire Pizza yet, plus adds morning options

Matthew Kang is the Lead Editor of Eater LA. He has covered dining, restaurants, food culture, and nightlife in Los Angeles since 2008. He's the host of K-Town, a YouTube series covering Korean food in America, and has been featured in Netflix's Street Food show.

Pitfire Artisan Pizza, Paul Hibler's flagship brand and concept, has successfully taken over the massive Sizzler on Arroyo Parkway in Pasadena, creating what might be one of the most useful all-day eateries in the 626. Opening today, the popular pizza concept exterior's was designed by Reed Architecture and interior by John Colter of Colter & Co, instilling a fun, colorful ambiance without taking out any of the social aspect of the large dining room. A large red wood-fired pizza helms the main part of the kitchen, adding plenty of warmth to a place that's ideal for group dinners and celebrations.

As for the menu, there's the signature burrata pie, a nice selection of salads like a house-chopped salad, and some pastas like a classic spaghetti and meatballs.

In addition, Hibler is attaching a Superba Coffee + Snacks in a 1,590 square foot space (interiors here by Charisse Cardenas of Plato & Pomo), emulating the thoughtful design that started at the Superbas on the westside. This morning spot will serve everything from breads, pastries, and sandwiches from Superba Food + Bread to espresso from Verve.

When it opens, Pitfire will serve from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. on weekdays, and until 11 p.m. on weekends. Superba will serve from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily.
