Local restaurateur, Satyen Shah, will soon open the doors to Rockland County’s first PizzaRev – a build-your-own artisanal pizza concept that has earned a loyal following of Southern California fans for its fresh take on an American favorite.
The new Nanuet restaurant, scheduled to open this month on Route 59 in the Toys R Us Shopping Center, will be the first of several franchise locations planned for the Rockland/Bergen market for Shah. “PizzaRev offers a completely customizable dining experience; we empower guests to create their perfect pizza – from a rich list of pizza sauces and toppings to our “Rev It Up” counter featuring 14 different spices and sauces to add to their creation,” said Shah.
“We believe our guests will appreciate the gluten free options as well as the fresh, locally sourced toppings, and the ‘one price fits all’ pricing,” added Shah, whose experience in the restaurant industry spans 20 years with nine successful restaurants to his credit. Shah plans to open additional PizzaRev restaurants in Wayne, Clifton, Secaucus, and Jersey City.
PizzaRev will host a VIP Pre-Grand Opening Ribbon Cutting Party on Tuesday, June 21 from 4:30 – 9 p.m. as well as a ‘Pay-What-You-Want’ Fundraiser for People to People when diners will be able to pay whatever amount they want for their first pizza and all donations will benefit People to People on Thursday, June 23 from 11 a.m. – 10 p.m.
The distinctive “Craft Your Own” pizza assembly process begins with a friendly greeting from a PizzaRev “crafter” who assists each guest in customizing their personal 11” pizza. Construction starts with the crust selection, either original or gluten-free, each one pressed into a thin canvas from a plump, homemade dough ball. Guests then choose from four signature sauces, including a savory organic marinara, a creamy white alfredo, and a spicy-sweet BBQ.
Finally, the masterpiece is completed with favorite selections from an array of artisanal cheeses and 30+ fresh ingredients, ranging from traditional favorites like pepperoni and ground beef to premium selections including sweet fennel sausage and fresh-picked basil and arugula. Each pizza, no matter how many ingredients are selected, is only $8.25.
PizzaRev’s interior design is sleek, simple and modern. Exposed ceilings, concrete floors and natural tones offer a minimalist yet inviting atmosphere, where the focus is on providing the guest an interactive pizza experience unlike any they have ever had.
Most unique to PizzaRev, and what enables the restaurant’s unprecedented speed of service, is the custom-built, 900-degree stone hearth oven. Guests watch the dancing flames in the background as their pizzas are fired to a perfect, Roman-style crispiness in less than three minutes. With literally millions of combinations to create, PizzaRev keeps guests coming back eager to try their latest craving.
